Conservatism has changed radically in the last few decades.

Old-style Tories don’t recognise the current torch-bearers.

And they have no respect for the new Tories either. Read:

“Even though I am a former Conservative MP, I will vote Labour in Kensington. I met two new Tor candidates standing in Holland Ward and they arrogantly spouted statistics at me. Numbers, always numbers, not the actual lives behind them. No wonder the Tories are seen as heartless as well as incompetent.”
Keith Raffan

Mr Raffan was a Tory MP for the Delyn constituency in north Wales, but was at odds with the leadership of Margaret Thatcher.

It can hardly be surprising, then, that he has such a low opinion of modern Tories – who are, let’s face it, her disciples.

And he’s right.

Councillors are public servants, but modern Tories serve money – not people. They have no place in local – or national – democracy.
