More Tory Outreach

So, I guess this is what Cameron meant about the Tories reaching out. Instead of just being the Party of the rich, they’re reaching out to the super-rich as well. Really, I suspected Cameron of wanting to take the party back to the 70s, but I didn’t realise it was the 1870s, complete with gentlemen farmers berating those oiks ‘in trade’. I guess it’s a lot easier to turn your back on the futile pursuit of economic growth if daddy left you a boat load of cash anyway. Meanwhile, in the real world here’s a tip for the Tories: if you have to have someone launching a jihad against the folks who fly Easyjet, at least choose someone who doesn’t think a budget flight is where they give you a special deal on filling up the Learjet.
