The champion of the working man?

The Old-Etonian hoody hugger has let it be known via the news this morning that he wants the Tories to be "the party of the working person". Mr C, of course, has always been in touch with the workers, attending a public school, mixing with the milli and billionaires of the Tory hierarchy. Writing arrant nonsense for the vampire Michael, supporting Thatcherite bigotry.

So, do we believe him, boys and girls? Does this mean that in the coming year he is going to announce policies which include repealing the outrageous anti-union legislation introduced by Obergruppenfuhrer Thatcher and later strengthened by the rich, powerful Tory barons? (Yes, I know Blair has signally failed to repeal them - but he's no friend of the working man either).

Perhaps we'll be hearing that the Tories will be raising the derisory minimum wage to something approaching a proper living one? Somehow, I don't think so.

Maybe the New Conservatives will announce a significant rise in the top rate of income tax to stop the obscenities of those in charge of our companies and businesses and place a ban on director's bonuses unless they are matched pound-for-pound by bonuses to those who earn the money for the fat bastards in the first place?

So, here's to Comrade Cameron and his solid working class cohorts who want us to believe they'll look after our interests above those of their wealthy paymasters.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot....?

In this case, most certainly not.
