Undercover with the Young Conservatives:

In the course of a bit of link-clicking, came across an undercover report by Laurie Penny of the New Statesman on a Conservative Future convention. It’s worth a read just for the voyeuristic thrill of entering their seedy little world:


Feel a bit bad for Laurie getting her bum grabbed by some slimeball, but it might have been just about worth it for the play she gets out of punning off it:

“I knew that women and the poor were going to feel the pinch as soon as the Tories took power, but I never imagined the paternalism would be quite this literal.”

Now – an interesting follow-up would be to attend one of the slimy Young Labour events…
