the carpetbaggers

My thanks to Antonia for bringing this blog to my attention. 

Their concept:

TWO GUYS JOIN THE TORY PARTY
ONE IS BLACK THE OTHER IS WHITE
WHAT HAPPENS

Ernie Urquhart and Eric Trollope (not real names) had decided to “join” the Conservative Party after watching Anne Widdecombe on a late night TV programme. She was going on about how the Conservative party of old had changed, and that the party was much more “in tune” with modern Britain, which was a very much changed place. She kept emphasising that the modern Tory was “inclusive” and that it welcomed people from all sort of social backgrounds and of all ethnic origins. For a while the party had been stressing its desire to involve more black people, ethnic people and the poor huddled masses and great unwanted in general and in particular. Join the Conservative Party? After a pitch like that, they decided it would be rude not to.

From the first post it looks like there’s all sorts of fun to be had following their adventure.
