Oh dear, Swire really doesn’t like the Lib Dems – surprise! Real Tories don’t eat tofu!

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.

One thought on “Oh dear, Swire really doesn’t like the Lib Dems – surprise! Real Tories don’t eat tofu!

  1. So Hugo’s view is that MPs with an alternative perspective is just “whinging”?

    So much for democratic debate as far as he is concerned.
