I agree with that Carrie, but the Tories won more seats than labour by a country mile. However when you see the bribes that Corbyn was offering to young inexperienced voters who never stop to ask where the money comes from (a bit like my grandson)
and then what must have been the most mean spirited election manifesto ever by the Tory party that promised nothing but more years of austerity, bringing back Fox hunting, (that would go down well … Not!)
scrapping of the Winter fuel payment and removing the triple lock on future pension increases on what for many is a very poor figure when compared to the rest of Europe (being in the EU didn’t improve that situation did it?) and then to say that anyone owning their own home would have to pay for their own care if they suffered from dementia while someone living in a council house or rented accommodation would not. With such a draconian and savage attack on its core voters, then is it any wonder that a good many either didn’t vote or went for Corbyns promise of no change, they really had no choice.
With that late home goal is it any wonder that they managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, I still cannot believe that any party could come out with those pledges without at least putting some figures on them such as at what level would you cease to qualify for the Winter fuel payment. Or what is the maximum level you would pay for your care? Is there an upper limit? One can only assume that to include these sort of things in order to save money then the economy must be in dire straights and they were being brutally honest with us otherwise they would not risk such a policy in the first place as it is a guaranteed vote loser, as one Tory minister put it “the only thing missing was compulsory euthanasia”. This begs the question of if that was the reality, then how on earth would Corbyn have kept all of his promises other than the usual labour trick of plunging us into even more debt, remember that todays austerity is a direct result of labours last stint in office.
As an aside it is all down to various parties (Blair did the same) of having unelected advisor’s within number 10 who have the PM’s ear at the expense of their other ministers advice, at least both those idiots have now resigned their jobs today.
Newcastle, you seem to have a better knowledge of all the moron style newspapers than I do
I also think you will get your wish regarding the collapse of this particular government and I also say “bring it on” and the sooner the better because the next time around they will not make the same mistakes with their manifesto and their support will flock back in droves.
