Taliban Timmy’s Tory Test

God be with you blog readers! Guido has taken the afternoon off, hopefully to repent his papist ways. God willing, I will be your blogger today. The Tory leadership candidates have agreed to answer my questions today. I am testing their fidelity to Montgomeria law. God be praised that they have compassionately agreed to go along with me for fear of losing votes.

First question for the blessed Davids : Will you introduce the death penalty for hashish fiends, opium den runners and white slave traders?
DC: No.
DD : Yes, and more than that, a Davis government will bring back public flogging of petty thieves and stoning for adulterers.
Second question for the exulted Davids : Do you believe that sex outside marriage is wrong?
DC: No.
DD : Depends what you mean by wrong, its not a, err, hanging offence, but its inadvisable. A healthy marriage to a blonde, sorry errm, a brunette, is all a man needs.
Third question for the honourable Davids : Are test tube babies Satan’s spawn?
DC: No.
DD : We have to look at the errm evidence, but if errr scientists or satanists are making babies we have to make sure we have a framework to deal with them in a firm, but compassionate way.
Fourth question for esteemed Davids : Are you a prophet who can see into the future ten years hence?
DC: No.
DD : Certainly, and my tax policy is based on the clear ability to determine macro-economic variables a decade ahead. That is the difference, the err clear blue errr water, with respect, between young Cameron and me, substantive policy from me, substance abuse from him. But I don’t want to bring that up. Just let me mention, gratuitously, that I grew up on a council estate.
Fifth final fun question : Women in Burqas or Hijabs?
DC: No.
DD : Blondes with double-D tits for me.

That’s it true believers, after unbiased consideration of the answers and careful study of our Taliban-O-Meter, which has now swung hard to the right, its Fox Davis for me.

This is Taliban Timmy wishing you all the blessings of the Tory-Taliban-Lite.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
