Dominic Cummings, quoted in 2017 15:23 - Jul 31 with 844 viewsitfcjoe

(He is basically Boris Johnson's Chief of Staff)

"People think, and by the way I think most people are right: ‘The Tory party is run by people who basically don’t care about people like me.' That is what most people in the country have thought about the Tory party for decades. I know a lot of Tory MPs and I am sad to say the public is basically correct. Tory MPs largely do not care about these poorer people. They don’t care about the NHS. And the public has kind of cottoned on to that.”

Even May said something similar (or reportedly thought so), about Labour being an actual conviction party (in the main), while Tory MPs just used the party as a vehicle to further their own interests. Who'd a thunk it.

Wouldnt disagree, and thats why its such a pity that the Labour party has gone too far the other way.

If Labour were sensible in their approach, they would be in power now.

And to think that so many people in this country seem these days to actively relish the idea of posh people trampling all over them.

It's incredibly frustrating.

I hate Corbyn, but if Labour had a credible leader with policies that were not as extreme.... I would vote Labour.

Which extreme policies are they?

He's... outspoken the say the least. His blog is pretty wild reading.

He seems both pretty damn smart and completely wacky.

He's also straightforward about the fact that Vote Leave and supporting Brexit for the senior figures was about 'leveraging influence', by manufacturing a crisis which the government and civil service couldn't resolve. He has contempt for the ERG because they actually believe in it all.

People keep saying stuff like this, but the 2015 election seems to suggest otherwise.

Labour had a moderate leader (although one that the Mail/Sun tried to paint as very left-wing - something that seems even more ridiculous now than it did at the time) and we'd had five years of the Tories reminding everyone that they were the same bunch of self-serving sh*ts they've always been, yet Cameron got returned with a majority.

I think the people that voted Conservative in 2015 deserve a pretty big share of the blame for our current predicament.

Indeed. And Corbyn isn't even extreme either ... popular with the electorate when they're asked about the policies themselves and entirely mainstream if you asked any other Northern or Western European.

Unfortunately, we've moved to the right as a country and become politically illiterate just like the US.

When an election is approaching, Tories campaign on a "Liberal / Socialist" economic strategy of spending money to promote growth.

When in power they revert to Austerity, Market Forces are the way forward (no Govt spending) survival of the fittest (except Banks)
