In so far as the Nu Tory face cards keep disparaging the base as a bunch of retarded bumpkins who don't understand the intricacies of modern politics, that strategy would probably work better if they didn't keep coming out with lines like this.

Lansley's position would be moronic at the best of times, but right now, with the government trying to convince us it's a straight-up choice between Labour's plan to ritually burn eleventy squillion pounds as an offering to the economics gods, or doing absolutely nothing and having the Lord Humongus stop by, well, let's just say that this: SMART!.

The thing is that this is that Lansley is correct: a recession would be good - for people like him! What do the Nu Tories care about a recession? They're all loaded anyway. All it means is that it'll be easier for them to get a plumber.

This is where we came in. It's not the base that insular and parochial, it's the Tory Top Brass themselves. Lansley is telling us who they are. They're privileged, they're entitled and they don't give a toss about anyone else.
