There is next-to-know chance of my ever voting Tory. I grew up in the 70s and 80s – the period of 3 million unemployed and “No such thing as society“. That said the spin coming out of the current party is desperately making it sound like a party of the Left – it’s all very confusing for an old left-winger like me who’s used to New Labour being right-wing and the Tories being even-further-right-wing. Must be confusing their Old Guard to say the least…
