Climate Change Minister Greg Barker told a business audience in the United States, “We are making cuts that Margaret Thatcher in the 1980’s could only have dreamt of.”
Cabinet Office Minister Oliver Letwin talking to Boris Johnson about whether there should be more airports said, “We don’t want more people from Sheffield flying away on cheap holidays.”
Barker is a junior Minister who hardly anyone has heard of. Letwin is a millionaire member of a predominantly wealthy Cabinet. Both reveal the heart of darkness that lies deep within the Tory psyche. Ruthlessly right wing, uncaring and arrogant. But they do know what they stand for.
What do the political class that dominates NewLabour believe in?
