Second Look at the Tories

I was beginning to dismiss Conservative leader David Cameron as a wet blanket. That he was so smug in installing that sissy windmill atop his house. That he led the Tories disgraceful call for an inquiry into the decision to go to war--a war Cameron and his shadow foreign secretary, William Hague, supported initially and now seek to use for political gain. The following news, however, has inspired me to reevaluate.
What's next? The birch? Alas, Cameron specifically ruled out corporal punishment, but this is a good compromise. No longer will British teachers be cyber-bullied and bullied-bullied. One other reason to support the Tories: the Labor Education Secretary is named Ed Balls. Surely British schools kids would take Parliament more seriously if the MP in charge of their education had a different last name.
