THE current Conservative party remind me of what happens on Strictly Come Dancing when there is a contestant who can’t dance but appeals to the voting public.

The public keep voting for them and the panel of judges do their best to get rid of them. It would appear that the Tory’s work along the same lines.

When there is a minister that actually understands what the majority of the decent people in this country want and doesn’t mind putting their head above the parapet and saying so, all the rest of the party, fearful of the vocal minorities outbursts, gets rid of them.

If the Conservatives want to lose the next election they are going the right way about it. Still, they’ll be alright, it will be us poor silent majority who have to put up with the government that follows with all the various weirdos pulling their strings.
