Atticus column, Sunday Times, page 21:
“Not every Conservative felt as comfortable in coalition as David Cameron. Former Foreign Office minister [Sir – Owl refuses to recognise croney titles] Hugo Swire, interviewed by the Institute of Government, explains the advantages of winning a majority in 2015: “We didn’t have to listen to the Lib Dems whingeing on about compulsory sandals or tofu for lunch or whatever.” Is that quite the spirit?”
Owl says: stereotyping, puerile and arrogant. Nothing new there then.
