Dave thinks it's OK to lie then

The Times reports this, David Cameron's fudge on faith school 'fakes', so it must be true. As far as I can see, there's not much fudge there. It's straight out justification: it's right to lie if it gets you what you want.

This is a very good example of what I talked about in my last but one post, the corrosive morality that Thatcherism promoted - anything you do is not just possible but actually justifiable, regardless of its actual moral quality, if it helps you attain your ends. What exactly is Tory morality nowadays then?
