I just read his amusing New Statesman article from last week in which he gives us the low-down of a party bash thrown by Lord Ashcroft for “Druggie Dave” and his “Buller boys”, a reference to Davey-C’s time at Oxford.

Have we entered an age of electoral audacity as well as an age of economic austerity!? For the Tories, it seems so.
