In an interesting article on some Tories' concerns about David Cameron's plans to withdraw his party from the main centre-right political grouping in the European Parliament (in order to align it with the far more 'Euroskeptic' alliance with right-wing Czechs and Poles), we encounter the following delightful turn of phrase from Lord Kerr of Kinlochard:
"I do not understand a rigid commitment to impotence," he said.Neither do I, Lord Kerr, neither do I....
So much for wets and dries then: the modern Tory party will be divided into hards and softs.
Or maybe we could go on just calling them pricks.
