The Stupid Party.

It's time for a quote from John Stuart Mill.
I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it.
Letter to the Conservative MP, Sir John Pakington (March 1866)
And so say I.

I hardly think any sentient being would deny it.
