Watching Prime minister's question time over lunch today (hard life being a student ;) ) i had the misfortune to see a particularly scummy Blairite MP Sion Simon get up. He started talking about unemployment in his constituency and assrted that it was a crucial factor behind 'white working class' alienation. He then emphasised the importance of supporting 'our people' to quote his exact phrase. A friend of mine who was watching with my - an Asian guy from the midlands - said he sounds more like a tory. There is another word that could be used to describe such sentiments. However being cautious about leaving the blog open to legal disputes, I will simply leave it readers to draw their own conclusion about what his comments meant given his career as a journalist for The Telegraph, the News of The World and The Spectator.
