I don't think I believe the official explanation for David Cameron's last-minute change to his conference speech.
There are two competing explanations for what went wrong.
According to one version of events, he originally planned to exhort the British people to pay off their credit card and store card debts.
This section of the speech was briefed to the media on Tuesday night, to appear in Wednesday's papers, a few hours before Mr Cameron was due to take to the stage in Manchester.
