By the standards of today Dr Grumble is pretty left wing. But today even the Labour Party thinks socialism is a dirty word. Phrases like 'mixed economy' are no longer in anyone's political lexicon. With that introduction who would think that Dr Grumble might be thinking of turning to the Conservatives for political succour? But do you know, Gordon, they seem to be listening? Dr Grumble has seen David Cameron. He saw him on the march. He understood. And the opposition seem to have it right on polyclinics. The video says it all. Now why do you think that is, Gordon? Remember your reflective practice. No more mistakes. Please.
PS Things must have changed because the local Conservatives have the Grumble family down on their list of no-hopers. Dr Grumble knows that because that's what the Tory candidate said to him the last time he knocked on the Grumble door. But he did still knock. And he listened.
