Matthew Parris and the Tory liberals who have killed off the family


I THINK I have Matthew Parris derangement syndrome.

He has written a piece in the Spectator saying how if the Tories move right after their inevitable crushing defeat, he’ll leave the party. What a loss. 

He also asks, would you want your daughter to marry Nigel Farage? A litmus test, it seems.

‘Writing in the Telegraph last week, Petronella Wyatt said the test should be how you’d feel about this man marrying your daughter. You’d shudder, wouldn’t you? At their peril do party strategists underestimate the potency of the shudder. When the Tories crash next month it will not be because they failed to win over Reform supporters, but – at least in part – because they tried to.’

Well, Nige is getting a bit on for the blushing millennials, but who knows, maybe he’s a bombshell in the sack.

The bigger and much more serious point is that because of the social liberals like Matthew Parris and the rest of the morons in the Conservative Party, the marriage rate has collapsed as well as the fertility rate.

So very few daughters – only those in the upper middle class really – are marrying anyone, even counting in the sham of ‘gay marriage’. No one is getting married to Nigel Farage or indeed to anyone else any more. That’s the point. 

So best of luck with the match-making. But university-educated millennials are not getting married or having children, so I think Matthew-cum-matron will struggle.
