This week a survey on the ConservativeHome website of likely new Tory MPs was an eye-opener. They are socially conservative, anti-environment, anti-Europe, anti-abortion, anti-gay adoption, pro-hunting and strongly in favour of the married couples' allowance that redistributes tax to the middle class. Only 15% see the climate as important: terrorism matters much more. Most want to cut money for Scotland.Uhm, that would be 'conservative', then, Polly.
She's missed the other growing impetus on the right; Localism.
