Cage-fight children: club licence to be reviewed after alarm at 'barbarity' | Society | The Guardian

“Getting more young people doing sport is great but I do ask myself whether it really does have to be in a cage,” Hunt told the BBC. “It feels very barbaric and I know there are concerns about children that young doing a sport like that. I think if adults choose to do it, that's one thing … I suppose I do share some of the shock that I think many of your viewers will feel.”

When I first read this paragraph I couldn’t help but think: how perfectly posh Tory those words are, it fits the stereotype perfectly.

What precisely about this says "posh Tory"?
