MY open letter to Lord Kalms

Dear Stanley,

I fear I must agree with you.

The Tories have been snouting at the trough, just like Labour. Their policies are no different to those of Labour, which is how the Prime Mentalist can nick them, which is also why the buttered new potato won't announce any policies. The buttered new potato is a "social conservative", which means pretty much the same thing as a "progressive", unless you belong to one tribe or another, in which case you will rant for hours about how different they are, but no-one outside the tribes can understand the difference.

Because the Conservatives do not differ from the Labour Party in the issue of "the state is the solution, what is the question", because the Conservatives show no sign of repealing New Labour's draconian state, because the Conservatives have no enthusiasm for the rights or responsibilities of the individual, because the Conservatives wish to remain in the EU under the pretence that they can somehow make it better, I too will be casting my somewhat less valuable and glamorous vote elsewhere tomorrow.

I hope that the buttered new potato catches the hint, but I don't think he's going to.

Yours ever,

I'd just like to congratulate you on writing an eloquent piece without a single rude word! Oh, and I agree with your sentiment too.

There's only one thing in your post I'd disagree with: your vote is as valuable as anyone else's. It might not be glamourous but it's valuable.

I suspect Gordon is not the only one who is going to get a rude awakening - not a failure, but a very shocking result.
