I think the irony with the Conservatives is that I could given a choice of Labour or them back them if they stood for what they claim to. If they meant they liked the NHS or at least the concept of free Education and Health. If they believed in market economics and not the mass subsidy model that extends Govt Power and loads debt on hardworking taxpayers and even the ones who steal their pay. If they had even the remotest belief in freedom.

Sadly the Conservatives are a con. They stand for Feudalism and the stoking of land prices and rural subsidy at the expense of the environment and indeed the land itself. They stand for rentiers as they seek to take housing assets into the stratosphere with subsidy. They talk Austerity yet match Brownian profligacy with subsidy to all those groups and fossil fuels. Cameron’s greenest Govt ever is paying oil companies whilst the price is low and trying to turn the UK into a fracked waste land. They support the banks laying waste to our productivity and the SME sector. If you’re a small businessman who votes Tory you’re an idiot (or your [sic] an idiot as you would write it). They stand for fraud and tax evasion.

They support the same nonsense as Labour of nationalising debt and trying to extract all taxes from the hardworking families they so patronise. They pay off the babyboomers whilst reducing normal people to foodbanks. They hand power to MI5 to spy on us and on behalf of large banks and corporates. None of this will create a free society or even a working economy for the vast majority of us. They toss subsidy to Coca Cola via the aid budget. To BAE for weapons that don’t work. HS2 threatens to match NHS PFI as a historic waste of money and graft.

The Conservatives are a conceit of ideology some say but it’s worse than that they are feckless fools who are either: sociopaths who just want to inflict misery: idiots who believe they are following an ideology: or just plain feckless creeps in it for themselves*. Labour patronise the Tories damn the poor but it all comes from a ludicrous conceit reinforced by the education system that they are better than the next person.
