Cameroon's hatred for Conservatives
Roy Liddle , linked here, seems to have it right in the Sunday Times:
Now Dave digs Nye, you wonder what’s left
"Nosing around for political heroes, the Conservative party has alighted upon the redoubtable figure of Aneurin Bevan. Having informed us last month that Polly Toynbee was a brave champion of social justice whose values were those from which the Tories could learn a thing or two — rather than a hand-wringing, humourless old trout — it was almost inevitable that the Tories should take the process one stage further and beatify the most left-wing individual ever to hold prominent political office in Britain.
"Still, Nye shared at least one belief with the current Conservative leadership: a pathological hatred of the Conservative party and all that it stands for. “No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin,” he once announced. One suspects that David Cameron feels likewise.
"You wonder where all this will lead, the right-wing eulogising of Toynbee and Bevan. How long it will be before some munchkin in the shadow cabinet announces that British conservative thinkers have been unnecessarily unkind to Guy Fawkes, Wat Tyler and Gerry Adams. And that maybe we judged the Baader-Meinhof gang a little too hastily.
