A word to Iain Dale

We’ve had the referendum on AV, lower taxes for low earners and lower class sizes to tackle discipline and nurture learning.

Now all we need is to add a + to AV.

Iain Dale jumping up and down saying `that the Conservatives have gone as far as they can` is just trying to stop his own pain. Talking about `angry Tory voter Marie` who calls Nick a political whore won’t actually change the situation.

Perhaps she should have been in my shoes for the past 23 years – her anger would pale into insignificance.

As for the idea that the Tories would win a GE – is he saying that the Tories are willing to cause further instability by calling one. Mark Pack seems to suggest that the Ashcroft money didn’t advance the Tories very much.

At the end of the day it’s the issues that count – tribalism is going down as a concept. Yes, it still raises its head.

Iain Dale has to answer the following questions:

1. What has he against really low class sizes that could compete with the private sector for deprived areas?

2. What has he against competing on an equal percentage level with other parties – is he frit?

3. What has he against low earners (particularly those locked out by means or culture from the benefits system) getting a tax refund at the expense of the super-rich?
