(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

Times columnist and Tory activist Tim Montgomerie has been called “one of the most influential Tories outside the cabinet“.

So it’s interesting that in a tweet today,  Montgomerie branded the charity Oxfam socialist” for wanting to eradicate poverty:

It seems the Tories have come a long, long way from the days in 2006 when the then leader of the opposition David Cameron pledged a Tory government would seek to eradicate even relative poverty in the UK:

Tories claim ‘big change’ on poor

Looks like the Nasty Party is well and truly back!
