Hi, I'm a little confused! CC appears to view everything through "Rose tinted spectacles", but only ever comes out with "Blue Rinse" utterances?

I don't think you know what his true views are, he's a contrarian who thinks they've found a group of folk they can play with their inflammatory statements.
IMO he's a bit too obvious, not a true master more a talented amateur.
I'm just a Conservative voter who is reasonably satisfied with the political scene at the moment. And that means I disagree with the views of most on this topic. Conservative voters are not rare. We are the biggest group of voters in the country. It is those who fail to see the benefits of Conservative rule who are being contrarian.
My views are mainstream.
Actually your views aren't mainstream.
You represent the biggest single group, but not the majority - 44% of folk who voted at the time, somewhat less now I'd guess and it's a given that folk who didn't vote also have views, presumably a percentage of those figured neither side was worth the time.
Also interesting is the concept of "views" - which implies that anyone who voted conservative shares your views.
That's never been true, in fact survey after survey shows folk actually support more social policies - that they then go on and vote Tory is of course one of life's little mysteries.
Mind you as a yoof I was always surprised by how 'right wing' the folk I lived around were in their views despite being staunch labour supporters.
Such is folk.
