Polly Toynbee is not exempt from xenophobic reasoning. She contemptuously attributes a marmalade of disagreeable attitudes to all us Conservative voters. We represent somewhere between a third and half of her fellow- citizens, yet I feel that if she could she would abolish the lot of us. We do disagree with many of her prescriptions for improving economic and social conditions, but if our analysis is different our motives are no baser than hers.
