Notting Hill? I Prefer Swanton Abbott!
You can always tell when political journalists have nothing better to do when they start writing ridiculous stories about political groups who carry 'influence'. This week has seen an outbreak of this journalistic disease with copious articles in Her Majesty's Daily Telegraph about the Notting Hill Tory set. Click HERE to read the Guardian's take on it today. I have to break the sad news that while one or two of these people are friends of mine I have never knowingly been to Notting Hill. It all started with an article by Alice Thomson who identified these people as the future of the Tory Party - it just so happened that every person she mentioned in the article was a personal friend of hers! And so a story was born... Personally I prefer to be part of the Swanton Abbott Set!
