Is it opportunity or disaster for the prime minister?

From watching the images of him leave his official residence for the last time, where he’d been holed up all day, he wore it heavily.

No bellowed “hello” for the patient snappers.

Leaving alongside his wife Marina Wheeler he looked not just a bit dishevelled, which is not exactly unusual, but pretty battered by events.

It is not clear at all from his friends what his plan is next, or if he even has one.

This time he has resigned, but when weighing up his options might think of his own words when he was booted out by Michael Howard years ago – “My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.”

More importantly, is the prime minister looking at opportunity, or disaster?
