Anyone got that list of Tory failures of the last 10 years? on 09:03 - Dec 12 by Darth_Koont

Do you ever stop to think?


what, that the chances are that we're about to see an awful tory government re-elected because the opposition has repulsed much of its core support? I do, I do.

and you're usual response is that people do what they're told to do by the tory press because they're turkeys. jeez.

And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of destiny, and the flatulent skunk of fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of eternity, I notice it's the end of the show

So much of that can be picked apart.

Here's some more for you:

Nine years of Tory failure?🤔

Annual deficit:
Lab 2010: £153.5bn
Con 2019: £32.3bn

NHS Budget:
Lab 2010: £111.7bn
Con 2019: £139.3bn

Minimum Wage:
Lab 2010: £5.93
Con 2019: £7.70

Tax Free Allowance:
Lab 2010: £6,475
Con 2019: £12,500

Unemployment:
Lab 2010: 8%
Con 2019: 3.9%


185k extra deaths attached to the political ideology of austerity. - Bunkum.


80% of the 5.3 million self employed live below the poverty line.
35% of self employed only earn £100 a month. - Maybe a fair chunk of these are entrepreneurs who are second jobbing. If you have a second job and are a start-up you will have a low income.


40% of working households have practically no savings.
70% of households have less than 10k savings.
60% of households can only survive 2 months without a wage. - These three have pretty much always been there. When working in pensions and wealth management I was seeing this in the late 90's early 00's. It's normal for our country.

Household debt reaches a new peak, despite emergency base rates. - Many families are utilising cheap debt for consumption or investment. This is a normal behaviour.

Increase of 50% in hate crimes. - When was this metric first collected?
Increase of knife crime by 150% to 22,000 per year. - Maybe the current London Mayor can help with this one. Also drug gangs could well be part of this.

Suicide up 12% in the year 2018. - A lot of veterans due to PTSD. Maybe a spike.

Life expectancy down 3 years. - Most likely due to factors outside of political control.
.
200k social homes lost since 2010. - How many sold to tenants?


A few thoughts from your list.

An estimated 58 veterans took their own lives last year, 1% of the 5821 total suicides in the UK. A massive problem yes, but hardly significant to the national crisis.

Fair point. Thanks.
Like I said, I've not sat down and fact checked each of the stats.
This I also think is a problem with the list itself. How can they link a lot of the stats with policy.

No doubt, you see yourself as part of the Labour core support. I think this is where you're going wrong.

That was under Blair where support was about heading to where the floating voters were. But the core support for Labour's values isn't the same at all.

I would suggest that statistics linked to policies is an iterative process, and then reviewing policies in light of the updated statistics. So on the face of it, after nine years of Conservative administrations the statistics damn them. However the first administration was a coalition with the Liberal Democrats and even during the course of that one Cameron was fighting what proved to be a losing battle against 'swivel eyed loons and fruitcakes' as he saw them. You would have thought that the referendum of 2016 could have been a unifying event for that party at least (although not for the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland) but since then the infighting seems to have gotten even more bitter. Should they win today will it get even more dog eat dog? With the accompanying unfavourable statistics...

That's not picking it apart, that's using different stats.

It's right to question though - I checked out a few of those claims and most stacked up, only a spot check of half a dozen though. B*ggered if I'm going through the whole list, but I' sure there'll be a few that are wrong or cherry picked to show the worst possible scenario.

You don't need list like this to know that the Tories have been incredibly bad for us over the last few years though. Just look around.

I agree that there are policies from the Tories which are damning.
The welfare assessment is something which angers me.

I'm not sure the ref was ever going to anything other than take the handcuffs off the Eurosceptics and amplify their voice - not a bad thing I might add as you need balance.

Hang-on a minute you lot.....hold your horses......

Brixton, are you attributing ALL of that list to Tory policies? Seriously?
Who wrote the list? Is it referenced?


He will be along in a moment to bemoan the lack of critical thinking amongst people who don't agree with him.

Thanks for the reasonable reply, sort of feeling a tad bashful that I cannot agree with you. Whilst I can see the deep academic issues that someone like Alan Sked has with the European Union I do not see them decently mirrored in the Leave campaign so I think the actual effect has been to, perhaps terminally, unbalance the United Kingdom.

As an aside, I am halfway through a long read from The Guardian from a couple of months ago (yep, quite a long read - I have had to break off from reading an edition of The Economist from last February cover to cover to make time for it) on the application system that European Union citizens resident in the United Kingdom have to go through for settled status and Daniel Hannon (the Conservative MEP who gave an eloquent but not so well received speech in favour of leaving at the Oxford Union before the referendum) is quoted as saying that the government have betrayed European Union citizens here.

Also "bedroom tax" is a lie, and a judge said as much at the time. Why should anyone be paying for someone to have more bedrooms than they need?

Education Maintenance Allowance - this was a late Brown policy that was in place for 5 minutes as a vote bribe and was rightly done away with. I'm not interested in paying kids to go to school, they only spend it on trainers and weed anyway.

Good to chat.
There does need to be a deep ditch dug to isolate the Leave and Remain campaigns. Two of the worst campaigns I'd argue ever fought (I await someone correcting me)

In my memory the Eurosceptics were never the rabid monsters some people have become over this issue. It always seemed to be polite and well mannered. Someone deleted that line in the campaign. Very sad and caused huge problems.

I'd imagine your home is full of papers ready to reading! Mrs H would have had them on the compost heap long ago. I struggle to keep anything for any time. My Guitarist magazines got a cull recently - I cried a little.

I'd imagine reading something from a few months back on such a volatile and fast flowing topic is fascinating. How things could have changed over a blink of an eye.

In Hannon's piece, what is it that the gov has done to betray the EU citizens. I really don't know.

(you see I can be reasonable ;-)
