The Tory OK-Yah Moment
The Tories found that at least one of their OK-Yah moments was captured on film when David Newman, the Tory agent in Richmond Park, raised his arms in triumph when Zac Goldsmith's victory was announced. At least Goldsmith, pictured on the left, had the decency to look embarrassed by the antics. For the record, Zac is a multi-millionaire mate of David Cameron from their time together at Eton. Zac doesn't pay anything to the exchequer as he pracises safe tax and uses a nondom. . .
Funnily enough, he and Cameron and little Georgie Osborne may be the reason why the Tories didn't walk to victory. The impression that they gave of languid superiority was just asking to be slapped down. And let's face it, watching their gloating sense of self-entitlement deflate as the night wore on was a joy to savour for years to come.
