When you do good, do you do it to ;
a) Genuinely make a difference.
b) Make yourself feel good.
c) Gain as much publicity as possible so that people think you are achieving (a) and (b) and so that people will vote for you.
Personally I always thought you did good simply for reason (a). Lots of people I know, politicians included, do all sorts of good work and help worthy causes without ever seeking publicity for it, yet apparently the Tories good work in Africa requires a BBC reporter to go with them ?
I wonder if the Tories will publich the carbon footprint of all those press people who are going with them to report on what they do ?
Update : I have changed the headline to remove the reference to "publicity stunt", after all, a stunt is something that is fake, and clearly it isn't "fake" that there Tories are there. However, despite what Iain Dale says in the comments, I doubt, for all the good they are doing, that the Tories would have been there at all if there was no press coverage in it for them. So they may well be doing some good, but for the very worst of reasons.
