IAIN Dale has come off the fence by finally backing Obama for president, showing the kind of (admittedly belated) good judgment that many of his party’s MPs would do well to emulate.
If ‘David’ really has changed his party, why do so many of his members – and the overwhelming majority of cyber-Tories – rabidly support Palin (and McCain also, I suppose)? Why do British Tories naturally align themselves with someone who opposes gay rights, abortion, science and gun control?
Well, gosh darnit! Maybe it’s because they agree with her! Aw shucks (wink, wink…).
