headline of the day

Johann Hari in The Independent with an excellent reminder of some of the actual scary policy nuts and bolts behind the weirdly smooth blemish-free potato-ey face of Cameron's Conservatives: basically the usual Tory kowtowing to corporate interests, tax breaks for their aristocratic chums, knee-jerk little Englander Europhobia and wholesale fucking of the vulnerable. No surprises there; more surprising is the choice of headline:

Nice. Probably better than Cameron "revealing" or "exposing" his inner Bush, though. I expect we'll get that after the election. There's already a few stray pubes of crypto-religious twuntery poking out round the sides of the distracting lacy knickers of "compassionate Conservatism". More to come I expect.
