Back to basics

Last week, the Tories selected as one of their parliamentary candidates someone who is Deputy Director of an organisation which thinks we should scrap child benefit, means test pensioners' and disabled people's bus passes and privatise the state pension as part of a project to take more than £30 billion per year out of the pockets of people on modest and average incomes.

Since this candidate's selection, there has been a massive outcry and backlash, and the local Conservative association has decided to review the whole selection process...

...because she had a relationship with a married man four years ago.

It's a really rather sad insight into the weird world of internal Tory politics and priorities.

I think the way to think about it is this:

A 50-something married man has an affair with a 20-something single woman.

Tory grassroot reaction: punish the women
