We have recently heard about Scots complaining about the number of "toffs" in David Cameron's Conservative Government, but criticism has now come from a surprising source – the Party's own back-bench MPs.
Whilst there have been murmurings of discontent about this within Conservative ranks for some time, now Tory MP Pauline Latham has lashed out with the words –
"David Cameron does surround himself with people who are like him. Everything is looked at through the prism of London, by people from London".
Another (unnamed) Tory MP has highlighted the Eton network at play within the highest echelons of the Conservative Party, saying –
"There are six people writing the (Conservative) manifesto, and five of them went to Eton, the other went to St. Pauls".
It is hard to believe how this elite can still rule the UK, who, by privilege, have wanted for nothing since the day they were born. They might as well be living on another planet, so far removed are they from the needs of ordinary people, thousands of whom are having to rely on Food Banks for their next meal.
At least Scots will have the opportunity to end this relic from the Middle Ages by voting ‘Yes’ for Scottish Independence on 18th September.
P.S. I would ask everyone reading this to write on similar lines to their local newspaper
