The British Conservative Party – not what it used to be

It says a lot about the once esteemed Conservative and Union Party, and indeed UK politics as a whole, that this statement may be made with only the tiniest hint of irony…

“He [Kenneth Clarke] claimed some of its supporters were fruitcakes and nutters, the phrase Cameron first used in 2006, but has subsequently not repeated for fear of being seen to be insulting potential Tory supporters.”

Seriously.
