Mistaken For A Tory

Last night- in an Oxford pub -I found myself sitting with some friends near mutual friends who were there as part of the Labour Councillors' meeting. I was aghast when, in response to somebody wearing bracelets saying "Vote Labour" and "Make Poverty History" I was accused of being a 'typical Tory' for suggesting we get "Make Labour History" braclets made up. I think it was the blue shirt that did it on that occasion, but this prompted everybody to share the fact that they'd all assumed I was a Tory when they first met me, too.

I feel dirty.
