For me, the most notable thing about the Fox/Werrity debacle is how it neatly encapsulated the Tories' entire purpose in seeking to govern. It is, in short, to be in a position to enable themselves and their friends in private enterprise to benefit to the maximum possible advantage from their governmental positions and the concomitant power to shape public affairs to precisely that end. Lansley's NHS re-vamp is also even more transparently part of that agenda - designed almost solely to enable the Tories' rich friends to turn handsome profits from lucrative NHS commissions.
'Twas ever thus, and 'twill get thusser - particularly while there are orange book Cleggs and Alexanders determined to aid and abet the Tories in fucking the least well off off over for their friends' profit.
It will continue until people wake up to it - but the Mail et al continue to dupe legions of brainless simpletons into thinking that the Tories have the country's best interests altruistically at heart.
I'm off for a nice lie-down, now.
