The siesmic wave that has emanted from Greg Clark (not Barker, yet another Greg who has sullied the Tories reputaiton of late) today has left me speechless. Along with most of the known world I regard Polly Toynbee as the devil incarnate whose only usefulness is in helping to define what you should not believe.
However, now the NuTories are a-changing again. The re-branding will not end. The Tories are to embrace Polly. Hopefully this is just all some sick joke to wind-up the members and win over some wimpy Lib Dems.
Mr Eugenides sums up the universal reaction perfectly.
I am seriously considering abandoning the Tories as a party; I fail to see what part of the centre right they represent on any issue. They would miss my vote too, living in one of the tightest marginals.
