Remember Ed Matts? He’s the Tory candidate running against Jim Knight in Dorset South. He’s done a Letwin and has been missing in action since his unfortunate difficulty. How he must hark back to a bygone age. An age when a nostalgia tour wasn’t a metaphor for your political career. How he must wish that he had kept to the policy he adhered to in 2000. The one where he thought asylum seekers in the vicinity would lead to aggressive begging. Those were the days. The days when you could complain about your opponents using photographs without permission.
