Zac Goldsmith, the Conservative candidate for Richmond Park, has launched a breathtakingly refreshing attack on the political classes. Talking to the London Evening Standard he said:
“I hate politics. I hate the game of politics. I have seen enough of politicians to know that it is not a class of people I particularly want to spend my time with. I don't like career politicians, I don't like what they stand for. I look at a politician who votes 100 per cent with his party and think: why did you do that? It is all about career.”Don’t Call Me Dave wonders who Mr Goldsmith was thinking of? Surely not Mike Freer, who once described his critics as “cosseted by family wealth” ?
