Common-Sense Conservatism

Britain's Head Boy's ex-token female wog, who resigned last week, ostensibly over the latest Israeli rampage in Gaza, has been doing her best to posture as the straight-talking common-sense northerner, after the fashion of her friend the Member for Brentwood and Ongar. "I am a brown, working-class woman from the north. People have been telling me I'm not good enough since the day I was born," said Baroness Warsi, who is only a baroness. Warsi does not hold the public-school background of the Bullingdon Club against them, but wishes they could be more understanding of those who lack similar opportunities in life, such as Baroness Warsi who is only a baroness and has held ministerial posts without the voters having any say in whether she was good enough or not.

Warsi also had a few things to say about the Bullingdons' appeal to ethnic minorities. After only four years of immigrant-bashing, refugee-bashing, forced repatriations, messages on vans, and means-testing for marriage outside the EU, it has dawned on Warsi that the Conservative Party isn't really interested in the wog vote. She has also noticed, perhaps almost as quickly, that the party leadership consists entirely of white male millionaires who occasionally have some difficulty distinguishing the wishes of their chums from the interests of the nation as a whole. I suppose there are places in the universe where a penny would take longer to drop than the Warsi cranium; but I doubt that many such places are within the pull of gravity.

    Ah but you forget that in the mind of the professional politician, mere trifles such as gravity can be suspended indefinitely, as long as the purpose serves.

    And when the professional politician is also a god-botherer, the penny can teeter over the abyss for an eternity, held up at the whim and will of the Almighty.
