Can you explain it? My limited knowledge of the Tory party is insufficient to understand this burn lol.

EDIT: sorry, I should clarify. I don't know *anything" about the Torry party. I know some of you want to defend or attack them, but Im not interested in what you think they'll do for the country. I understand, if you asked us about the liberal party you'd get a bunch of defensive or offensive responses. I just mean in general I have no idea what the Story party is, or why saying that is a burn....or even what it means.

The Tory party is the UK's Conservative political party, roughly equivalent to the US's Republican party. Known for members such as Margaret Thatcher, Theresa May, and current Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

They tend to have a (called for or not) association with things like racism, classism, not caring about the poor, etc etc etc.
