Watching the news, in jaw-dropping horror, as the right wing politicians' mindless orgy of rage smashes at the fabric of society, punishing feckless mums for the sins of their offspring, threatening councils with massive bills for re-housing problem families in hotels after they have been driven out of their council houses, committing untold millions of tax-payers' hard-earned money in self-defeating schemes like withdrawing benefits from rioters, it is easy to feel angry and upset with them.
But we mustn't.
We must try to understand them.
Remember that your average Tory politician was first wet-nursed then controlled by a nanny, turfed out of his family home at the tender age of 7, packed off to a stinking boarding school to be abused physically and possibly sexually by elder children, equally emotionally deprived, made to "fag" for them, living in a self absorbed bubble, isolated from society...
Is it any wonder that Tories have no understanding of what is going on in the real world?
We must try to understand more and condemn less. They are to be pitied, not treated with contempt.
What we really need to do is to make sure that never again are their well-manicured soft hands allowed to get near to the levers of power.
