Don’t blame the Brummies!

While I’m always happy to hear that my beautiful adopted city of Manchester is the spiritual home of the Labour Party (and if any of my Scotland-living friends are reading this – yeah, yeah, I know), apparently it works two ways – the Today programme’s Evan Davies is reporting from the Tory Conference in Birmingham today on ‘how Birmingham built the modern Conservative Party’. Maybe it’s time I stopped admitting to being from the West Midlands.

ETA: obviously David Willetts’ Tory tour of Birmingham took in Bournville, as a great Tory example of social housing by philanthropy. What paternalistic rubbish.
