Dear British People (Left, Right, Centre, or whatever your political persuasion may be)
Please refrain from referring to your ruling party as ‘the Tories’. The ‘Conservative Party’, so-called, is at this point in your nation’s history approximately as Tory as George Washington. No, scratch that. George Washington was a significantly better Tory than your ‘Tories’. And he was a Patriot (i.e. a Whig).
What brings on this tirade, you ask? A quote from Her Majesty’s Prime Minister, The Hon. David Cameron:
Many Muslims I’ve talked to about these issues are deeply offended by the use of the word ‘Islamic’ or ‘Islamist’ to describe the terrorist threat we face today… it is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of life, not the other way around.
I expect this kind of nonsense from leftists, Marxists, and Jacobins. Which is to say I expect it from ‘conservatives’.
Conservatism is dead. Long live the Reaction.
