Blogs editor Damian Thompson has a must read piece
over at the Telegraph:
"So Daniel Hannan attacks socialised medicine on American television, and immediately Dave slaps him down. Is it because of his criticism of the National Health Service, or because of the way he criticised it - that is, with an eloquence and forensic command of detail that makes most members of the shadow cabinet sound like jargon-spouting middle managers?
If Dan was an MP, the Conservatives would be forced to engage in the very thing that frightens them most: ideological debate."
The truth hurts.
