Totty Watch : Who are these Policy Wonks?

Recess Monkey* is having a bit of fun with some Tory girls in the back of a car. The new Tory Stand Up, Speak Up site has three videos with these nice girls on a 40 minute car journey discussing Conservative policies, Pete André and Jordan, Grazia magazine and Victoria Beckham.

Guido wants to remind you that it is Recess Monkey who during the Labour deputy elections directed an eight part interview with Hilary and Tony Benn waffling in semi-darkness into a video camera controlled by a Parkinson’s sufferer.

Like the Monkey, Guido too wants to know, who are the girls?

*According to a recent ICM survey 5 times as many MPs read Guido as Recess Monkey.
