First there was ‘compassionate conservatism’, then there was a duck house, an alliance with dodgy Polish right wingers, slagging off the NHS, then Ashcroft, promises to bring back fox hunting and abolish rich folk taxes, and now Tories block a bill to curb the blood sucking activities of vulture funds. To be honest, I was surprised that the bill got as far as it did; Labour play stooges to big money too. So we shouldn’t be surprised that someone stepped in on behalf of the scumbags which profit from the misery of others, and neither should we be shocked that it was a Tory.
What this episode should confirm is that compassionate conservatism is genuine, but reserves all it’s compassion for the rich.
Same old Tories then.
