If you thought that a Tory majority government ostensibly being led by a moderniser might dull the instincts of social conservatives then think again. Conservative Woman founder and co-editor Laura Perrins has dedicated an entire post to her assertion that Labour leadership candidate Chuka Umunna not being married, errrr, “sets off alarm bells”.
A local Labour candidate hits Chuka Umunna’s hands with a hammer, but the shadow business secretary escapes unscathed thanks to smart material manufactured by Hove-based firm D3O. Some parliamentary rivals might venture that they weren’t bashing hard enough.
