Is that quotation from Alec, Evelyn, Auberon, Alexander, or Daisy?

Or did you mean lower case, as in "waugh adj.", 'Tasteless, insipid; unpleasant to the smell or taste, sickly; faint, weak, etc.', or "waugh, int.", 'An exclamation indicating grief, indignation or the like'?

"... the Tory Right is much more better at organising a rebellion than the Tory
Left ..."

If it's true that the more goods, the better, shouldn't this have read, "the
Tory Right is much more betterer at organising a rebellion than the Tory Left"?
