Who do they think they are?

Mulling over current events, it seems we are moving into a new era of politics, where politicians have completely abandoned the pretence that they have any respect for their voters.

On the back of Gordon Brown's dismissal of "...behind-the-times, anti-science, flat-earth climate sceptics" – who probably account for 55 percent of more of the electorate - one recalls David Cameron's labelling of the eurosceptic vote in April 2006 as "fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists, mostly".

And then they complain that we don't vote for them? Who are the deluded souls now?
