Just when I was thinking that the Tories were playing things rather well, we get two sets of images today which are hardly calculated to endear them to the public. First, their leader, David Cameron, attends the swish do that is held to promote a by all accounts execrable book called "Cameron on Cameron". Written by Dylan Jones, the editor of style magazine GQ, this exercise in navel gazing allows all our worst preconceptions about the son of privilege to rise to the surface.
Next, a bunch of ambitious Tory candidates, united in their utter lack of judgement, have allowed Tatler magazine to take glossy photos of them wearing expensive clothing and bill them as the Tory cabinet of the future. If these ridiculous individuals really do think that this somehow advances the conservative cause, then the hope some of us might be investing in a future Tory government looks as if it should evaporate faster than a puddle in Arizona.
GQ and Tatler. Truly, a great way of extending the Tory reach out of the affluent suburbs.
