I don’t understand Tories
UPDATE : As if by magic Iain Dale publishes more of the same : Iain Dale’s Diary: SamCam Does NOT Vote Labour! You don’t need bait on the hook with these guys, they just bite at the hook anyway !
( I found Iain’s comment : “frankly, if that’s the most damaging allegation to emerge from the programme, I imagine everyone at CCHQ will be quite pleased.” to be enticingly ominous by the way )
I find out from Conservative Home, & a post by Tim Montgomerie tonight that Samantha Cameron has never voted Labour
This apparently because tomorrow’s Mail on Sunday is planning to lead on the front page with a story claiming that the wife of the leader of the Conservative Party voted for Tony Blair’s party in 1997.
What I don’t understand is :
- This would make a mildly amusing story – in a Labour supporting paper ! – The Mail claim to support the Conservatives so why put out a story that can only have the purpose of causing embarrassment to the Tories ?
- Why Tim Montgomerie , Conservative Home or any other Tory would waste their time posting anything about such a stupid non-story – nobody but Samantha Cameron knows who she voted for – and frankly why should anyone care ? I voted Liberal or Lib-Dem until the mid-90’s by the way – I like to think my thought processes have matured – others may think I’ve changed my mind. It’s OK though – no sin, no shame – no problem, – and none for Samantha Cameron either (whoever she voted for)
- The commenters over at Con Home immediately lay into Cameron over this – claims that he’s a clone of Tony Blair anyway surface almost immediately, and then they start arguing amongst themselves – and as far as I can tell these are Tories not Labour interlopers. – Why are they so stupid – it’s clearly not worth getting in a tizz about.
I don’t understand them. I don’t understand them at all.
