    Who are pro business centre right voters supposed to vote for in the UK now? Labour taken over by 1960's Trotskyites, SNP, Sinn Fein and the Plaid Cyrmu all sing from some of the same hymn sheets and Tory ministers, ex ministers and party members telling business owners and bosses to "f##k off"?
