Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They're both right and wrong.

Billionaires are the pipers, the Tory party in Westminster, let alone the voting public, are merely the functionary monkeys who dance to the tune played.

So the viewpoint of the hearty yeomanry of Doncaster is entirely irrelevant. This is a war in the air between the billionaire supporters of TWBJ (the Barclay bros, tax exile owners of the Telegraph) and the billionaire supporters of Gove (Rupert Murcoch, Dark Lord of the rest of the media).

The stories in the press are not about affecting electoral performance, that's irrelevant cos that's just a popularity contest with the paups. They're about determining whether the billionaires will persevere with TWBJ as damaged goods, or move to Gove as a clean-ish pair of hands.
