I am often impressed with Rory Stewart’s thinking ability, and, unlike the current Conservative Despot in Downing Street, he is a gentleman and not a ‘cad’ – or worse.
So this is a video from what I consider the thinking man’s Conservative (though, for sure, some have suggested that that this very idea is an oxymoron):

Unsurprisingly he abhors what he has found in visiting foodbanks in the North East.
Yet he finds the solutions ‘very difficult’.
His party colleagues, by contrast, found causing many of these problems pretty easy.
Stewart went to Eton and is a former diplomat. He is certainly more educated than most of us (and certainly me) but seems never to have heard of money.
Isn’t it time for civics to be retaught in schools and for an A* to be required for all prospective MP’s?
Even – or perhaps especially – for those from Eton?
