How does one explain a government presiding over the steepest reduction in home ownership levels, and the steepest rises in rents for private rented accommodation in living memory? How does one explain a government that dismantles the processes that monitored the standards of our food, and then blames anyone except itself for the subsequent crash in food standards?
I am ashamed that we still tolerate the recurring pestilence of 19th century Conservatism which blights our politics. Is there no way to rid ourselves of it forever? A certain plebiscite in 2014 does spring to mind.
