Downturn Abbey

One of the best jokes at Labour Conference about how out of touch the Tories are, came from Harriet Harman when she told delegates "I hear they do watch TV from time to time and I hear they love Downton Abbey. The only problem is they think it's a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

The Tories probably thought everyone lived on a posh Edwardian estate. Harman added: "And they never need to do their own dirty work. Why would they? They've got the Lib Dems for that.

The Lib Dems boast of being a brake on the Tories. So what happened on tuition fees, on VAT, on police cuts, on the NHS? Clearly the brakes failed."

Meanwhile Cameron's sexism continues to drive away women voters. Yvette Cooper said the PM had turned his back on millions of female voters by cutting childcare, child benefit and Sure Start centres.

Remember Cameron's response to Angela Eagle who warned him about the damage he was doing, not 'sorry', but 'calm down, dear'.

Same old Tories.
