I hear that the Tory leadership is not actually too respected by the Tory MPs, especially since the tax credits debacle. They believe that the leadership think they are God's gift to politics - but isn't there something old that people say about campaigning in poetry and governing in prose?
As I tweeted today, watching the Tories stumble around since they've been governing on their own is like bumping into your ex in their pyjamas, shouting at traffic.
In the midst of their travails, they seem very triumphant about winning seats from us, so much that DavidCameron thinks it's a fine rejoinder to Tim Farron's question about child refugees, to mock him for having fewer MPs now.
There's a word for all this. It's hubris.
