The Talksport Tories

It can be difficult, especially if like Jackie Ashley you are paid to write stupid articles in the Guardian, to remember what the Tories are really like.

A couple of years ago, a friend was out knocking on doors for the Labour Party, when a ruddy-faced, middle aged gentleman wearing a blazer opened the door. Upon being asked whether he might consider supporting Labour, a look of pain crossed his face:

"No, no, absolutely not. I'm really sorry, but I'm definitely not Labour. I'm a Conservative, always have been. Look, I don't quite know how best to put this, I just don't agree with Labour...", he stuttered at this point, obviously still worried that he had not quite made the point about where his allegiance lay.

"...I, I listen to Talksport," he concluded, as if relieved to have managed to have found a way to convey where his political sympathies lay with reference to a radio station which, surely, only Tories would listen to.

I don't know whether TalkSport do coverage of the Conservative Party conference, but if they do, I wonder what he and the other Talksport Tories make of David Cameron.
