It's turning out to be a wretched summer for David Cameron. Bless him. Firstly, all sorts of criticism from his own party, Ali Miraj, Lord Saatchi, Graham Brady and Lord Kalms, an onsalught of Yorkshirefolk stopping him eating his dessert, trips and holiday plans put through the meat mincer in order not be wrong-footed by the hyperactive Clunking Fist....it's endless misery for poor fellow.
Lord Kalms has been historically a huge donor to the Tory party but hasn't given to them since Cameron took over, and doesn't seem likely to now, after his recent "come on, chum" criticism of the leader.
Now another Big Tory donor accuses Cameron of arrogance and says he won't give any more money to the party. It's millionaire Sir Tom Cowie. He gave £0.5 million to the Tories 2005 campaign.
The litany of verbiage from Sir Tom is that he accuses Cameron of "Old Etonian arrogance" and says that he is "very very disappointed" with him.
In response to a question about the present state of the Conservatives he told the Guardian:
Are you sure you don't want to hear foul language? ... All I can say is I am very, very disappointed with the state of the party. I will not mince my words: I shan't send them any more money."
...The Tory party seems to be run now by Old Etonians and they don't seem to understand how other people live. They seem to be very arrogant like I suppose Old Etonians can be. They certainly don't understand about grammar schools.
