It’s not just racism with Conservatives; they’ll target anyone who isn’t a millionaire holding their beliefs.

I read a witty tweet about it earlier. It said: “Only two kinds of people vote Conservative – the millionaires and the misinformed.

“If you vote Tory, look in your wallet to find out which is you.”

The government has been accused of shutting disabled people out of elected office by delaying the return of a dedicated fund to help people stand for parliament.

A group of Labour frontbenchers has urged ministers to reinstate the Access to Elected Office Fund without delay, which was set up under the coalition government to give grants of up to £40,000 to disabled candidates for additional costs such as transport or sign language interpreters.

The vital fund was frozen for review in 2015, and Penny Mordaunt, the women and equalities minister quietly announced a further 12-month consultation earlier this month.
