More from the Very Modern Nasty Party...

Question: Why did 30 Tories pack a hearing in Parliament this week of a Statutory Instrument Committee...?

Clue: The statutory instruments under consideration were new laws to protect people in the supply of good and services against discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation...

Answer: The Tories were there to try to stop regulations on sexual orientation from becoming law.

The thoroughly modern Conservative MPs who packed the committee included Shadow Attorney General Dominic Grieve, 'Vulcan' Redwood and former Tory Leader Iain Duncan-Smith, who is apparently in charge of Cameron's family policy.

Isn't it good to know that the Tories are no longer the Nasty Party...?
