Swing swing together


Gordon Brown has been making fun of the Conservative leaders for being toffee-nosed (whatever that might mean) upper-class twits. And indeed, the Tories seem rather embarrassed about their upbringings, if by upbringing you mean being shipped off to a boarding school at age 7. David Cameron’s resumé doesn’t even mention his time at Eton, and the Tories’ other public-school-educated leaders have also omitted this information, while attendees of state schools do make note of the fact.

I think it’s a shame that the Tories are not turning their schooling to their advantage, and to that end I propose a CONTEST, an Eton contest if you will, although I understand that for an American blog an eating contest is more traditional: come up with a motto for the Conservative party that is unafraid of its leaders’ status. I’ll get you started:
Waterloo, Eton, playing-fields, ‘nuf said old chap?

We know what it’s like to be forcibly sodomized – now it’s your turn.

Droit de seigneur, it’s not just a good idea, it’s the law
