You're not doing it right...

The Crewe and Nantwich by-election has got Labour people a more than a little upset at some of the campaign material. A big theme that appears to be developing is that the toff label just doesnt stick any more.

It's true, but not completely. It's not right to go "'ere, look at the bloody toff", that's making a direct appeal to predjudice. What you want to look at is what the toff stands for, and unless I've misjudged the Conservative party, it's opportunity, standing on your own two feet and such.

So, to that end I have a question:

What gives you, someone who has had every advantage in life, who has never needed any help from the government the right to tell the rest of us that the government should butt out of our lives?

Because as far as I can tell the, one of the Conservatives main messages appears to be:

It's ok for daddy to pay, but not the government.
