An Unnecessary Role

embracing false choices

Empathy

A brief addendum to the last post. I don’t think the Tories are necessarily bad people, but I do wonder how many people in the Conservative Party would recognise the picture of my grandad and people like him, and how much they would understand about the way he lived his life.

And in saying this I express not a hint of ‘solidarity’ with the riff-raff element who this weekend inserted themselves into a peaceful community protest in Tottenham, but as inner city London burns a Conservative Mayor and a Conservative government have to deal with the aftermath. And this lack of empathy means that I don’t think they are going to find it very easy at all.
