Love Me, I'm A Liberal

In the wake of the Conservative rah-rah over George the Progressively Regressive's smirk-and-slash performance on Wednesday, Daveybloke's orange muffler evidently feels the need to inject a bit of humanity into the social cleansing. When one has just announced one's intention to kick the poor in the teeth and then fine them for mumbling, it is just possible that one's cuddly credentials may suffer a bit of a dip in credibility. Accordingly, Daveybloke's orange muffler is going to do a Venerable Tony turn on Desert Island Discs, claiming (or revealing, as the Observer's resident psychic hath it) that he has struggled long and hard with his conscience about the assault on our more vulnerable citizens and finds the whole thing "morally difficult" because "it's difficult for the country"; which is jolly big of him. Daveybloke's orange muffler has "spent every day and pretty well every minute of this process asking myself if there are pain-free alternatives"; in coalition with the Conservatives, the question of merely sane alternatives clearly does not arise, and with the sudden decline of the Institute for Fiscal Studies into a nonsense factory, there was no-one but himself to ask. Before entering the coalition, Daveybloke's orange muffler did ask a friend whether Daveybloke was trustworthy; presumably the answer was, "You can trust him as you can trust yourself".
