Thanks for sharing Barry.

I think that Kuper's take on the Tory political elite is accurate. These are people with a strong sense of entitlement.  Their aim is winning arguments regardless of  repercussions.

I have always found exhibitions of wit suspect.  Political or academic.  A clever turn of phrase often conceals lack of content in an argument.  It should be possible to add a "bullshit" variable to models of political entrepreneurship.

I don't totally agree with this, as it ignores the real feelings of people--but it is a fascinating take
