Gerald Warner, with his inimitable style, once again lambasts iDave and his "Vichy Tories" in his latest post. Discussing the possibility of a hung parliament and any possible deal Cameron would do in order to move into No10 and how this might be received by the 'hard-core' Tory faithful, Gerald says:
"The bottom line is: what kind of masochistic “Tory” would vote for this antithesis of everything he believes in, provoking in the process the extinction of his party, buried beneath the landslide of a PR voting system?"
This begs the question whether that 'hard-core' will hold it's nose and vote Tory, or even LibDem instead - something which is hardly likely. Therefore it has to be considered to whom that vote might be given - and for any 'true' Tory there can only be one possible recipient.
Pearson and Farage must be rubbing their hands with glee!
