A real man versus a monkey

Guardian Unlimited Politics | Special Reports | Doing it for Tom: Mr Keys takes on the prime minister

"How come the prime minister can write a letter of condolence to Ozzy Osbourne after he falls off a quad bike, but can't write to families bereaved by the war, or visit the wounded?" he [Reg Keys] asked on the doorstep.

Over the road from the Labour Club, Simon Cross was taking a day off from his job as a psychiatric nurse. "I haven't decided yet. I'm very sorry about that man losing his son in the war, but you sometimes think they would elect a monkey in a suit around here, so long as it was Labour."

What do you mean "would"?
