Home truths hurt the most when they come from your own side. Mr S was gabbing with a backbench Tory MP the other day, talking about how the Tories might connect with what the said MP described as ‘[those] parts of the public that we used to rely on in the Eighties and Nineties.’

The MP said rather wearily that the party needed to speak ‘in a way that those in our party who are only a trust fund failure away from having to work for a living, struggle to.’ Ouch. Who could he have been talking about, I wonder?
