TheTory Bear blog ran a story about a Tory student, Matt Lewis, going to a “bad taste” fancy dress party as Madelaine McCann… you can you guess where this is going… the tabloids have gone into full on outrage mode.
Did he really cause any harm or hurt? Only the reporting of it could have hurt the parent’s feelings. Caroline Spelman, the party chair, says Matt’s behaviour is “totally unacceptable” and confirmed that he had been expelled. “This offensive behaviour is not only shocking but intolerable and completely unacceptable,” she said. “There is no place for this sort of person in the party.” There is however a place at the top of the party for someone who fiddles her expenses to pay for childcare at the taxpayers expense.
