Called me hard-hearted, but right-wingers are supposed to be reasonably tough-minded and demanding about public servants, yes ?

"Tragedy is an over-used word, but ... striking is the sense of genuine loss Dr Fox will feel today: as even his most bitter critic would concede, he truly loved his job at defence. Walking the world stage from Washington to Kabul, talking war and peace and deciding the fate of nations; this was what he came into politics to do, and this he has lost"
"the Tories have lost a talented personality whose warmth, frankness and humour were invaluable assets, even if his judgment left something to be desired"
Hey - we are only interested in his judgement, that and nothing else. Warmth, frankness and humour, FFS? So is my horse, Octavius; and for that / I do appoint him store of provender.
