Our best friends are Tories because we live in Essex.
I confess our Christmas Card was intended to provoke but also to nail our colours to the mast, lest our views were misunderstood.
Our government say they cannot afford to feed our poor on our behalf and that is of course an unmitigated Tory lie. That goes without saying. Even smart Tories know that.
Iain Duncan Smith
If a scraggy beard means that I look like a lefty, then Iain Duncan Smith certainly looks like Scrooge. And not only looking like, but behaving like Ebenezer with his sly lurking, and his failing to answer. Somehow he is able to oblige Lib Dem MPs to squirm like worms to make him smell less like the air provoked by a Brussel sprout.
Tory Central Office focus groups have been well advised to keep IDS off the TV any time near Christmas, if at all.
We are not broke.
The Tory message is that Food Banks are Labour controlled and politically motivated and should not be confused with 19th century Dickensian London. However, the Work House is not so far removed from the vision of IDS and Macaroon.
In fact it is the church and other charitable institutions that run Food Banks. Yes, the Pope is a Labour supporter and so is the Archbishop of Canterbury, whether you like it or not.
So would be, Jesus.
Britain is not broke.
