"Workers

Never vote Tory"

Growing up in the 1950/60s working class it always seemed to me that many people were actually Tory in their basic outlook. Labour had an "elite" containing some apparently more liberal people - but most of the Party followers whom one might term "workers" did not ascribe to liberal policies.

My father, a miner, was a Labour activist in a Labour safe seat. One day the chairman of the housing committee opened a new row of council houses. A nice small redevelopment in the middle of town - unlike the large estates that were being built on the outskirts of the city. The street was named in this councillor's honour. A few days later he was the first occupant of one of the houses. That was when my father quit the Party.
