My general attitude towards Tories is probably the same as some zenophobes have towards the French and Germans. I like a few individuals, but as a whole...
And then there are those who say and do things that remind you what you morally dislike about them as a group.
First of all there was the discovery that David Cameron has fallen foul of the Parliamentary Standards Commission. Now I like David, but he does seem to be a bit of a chipmunk sometimes with his publicity-seeking events, such as cycling to Parliament, suggesting we hug hoodies etc.. which, added to various other events, does make one question his judgement.
But there is the unpleasant side as well, such as the Barnet Councillor who blacked up as Nelson Mandela at a fancy dress party.
Now Cllr Gordon says that it was in tribute to Mandela, and he has even had some support from Nelson Mandela's office, but did they know about this little story concerning Cllr Gordon some thirty years ago? I somehow doubt it.
The Tories. Always there to remind you how they once were and why they lost so badly in 1997!
