Wacko Zacko to Be Proxy Target?

The plutocratic environmentalist Zac Goldsmith is part of the new look Cameron’s Conservatives. However over at ConservativeHome.Com the Tory troops in the comments section are beginning to mutiny and Zac looks likely to be the proxy focus of their ire. Liberalism, lesbians and racially aware lawyers may be the new order of the day at CCHQ – and why not – but the tree-hugging, old Etonian, anti-capitalist son of the billionaire corporate raider is an easy target in the making for the old guard.

“When you go into a shop and buy a sandwich it is an environmental disaster.”

Quotes like the above do seem to suggest an accident waiting to happen. As a prospective Tory MP he would have found it difficult to sign up to any previous Tory manifesto, and most Tories will find it odd to be in the electoral trenches with an anti-globalisation zealot who argues Britons are damaging the planet by eating bananas.

So is Zac going to be the proxy target for the right? Tim Worstall in The Times fired the first shot. Expect many more.
