As this is now officially a Meme, a thread to gather 'wisdom' on the great Mail and Express-reading Tory grassroots.

Jerry Hayes has put up an interesting blogpost (no doubt influenced by the fact that he is no longer a Tory MP - but he was to the left of the Tories. When asked why he didn't join New Labour he said that they were too right-wing for him. Interesting bloke.

They eat together, drink together and bang on and on about Europe and how awful and posh Cameron and his upper class cronies are. How they are never listened to. How they must do anything at any price to get rid of him. And as for those yellow bastards? They don’t know their place. Why doesn’t Cameron just tell them to like it or leave it. If it means the end of a coalition tomorrow, so be it. We’d have an election which we would win. And then in three weeks time an In/Out referendum which we would also win.

Then Britain would be great again. We would trade with whom we want. The pound would sour.

If that isn’t mad swivel eyed loonery I don’t know what is. And you would be amazed to hear that these views either in full or in part are shared by activists and backbenchers alike. But only a minority. Not that you’d think it from the noise that is generated.

Don’t be lulled into the honeyed words of Cash and Redwood who pretend that they support Cameron’s negotiations. They don’t. They want out. Yesterday.

So day after day the Prime Minister is personally attacked, undermined and politically spat upon by members of his own party, who go totally berserk if there is a whiff or criticism of them or their eccentric views.

And after putting up with all this vitriol, abuse, misinformation and damage to the party some Cameroon tells a journalist off the record what the rest of the country and most of the press thinks.

They are all fucking mad.

Whoever is responsible for the mad swivel eyed remark should be exposed.

And given a pat on the back.
Sound like any group of people we know?

As Hayes is hinting at, this was calculated remark not a gaffe.

From that Telegraph article:
A profile of Mr Cameron in the Financial Times last year reported he had used a similar phrase, and "tells colleagues that anyone who wants to talk to him about the EU is 'swivel-eyed'".
Drip, drip, drip. Going to be very difficult for Cameron to stop the rot. Much of his party's base was never convinced by him in the first place.

Good piece here on Loongate and the general withering away of the Tory base.

That should get blood boiling.

I like this.

Tory who called activists 'swivel-eyed loons' should be reprimanded, says John Redwood

Don't call me a swivel eyed loon says a swivel eyed loon...
Can't wait for the Daily mash to bash out something similar.
