A long time in politics

Graham Smith | 13:38 UK time, Saturday, 31 March 2012

A week which started badly for the Conservatives, and which then got worse, and which then saw all three of the main political parties humiliated in Bradford West, ends with that megaphone for revolutionary socialism The Daily Mail offering us this thought:

"...the humble Cornish pasty has become a powerful symbol of class struggle. Absurdly, Mr Cameron felt obliged to respond by proclaiming his affection for pasties. Sadly for his credibility, the shop where he claimed he had bought a pasty most recently closed five years ago."
Without wishing any harm to any West Country Member of Parliament, a by-election right here, right now, would be huge fun.
