I wish there was an upvote or Like button on hear.....That quote should
be pinned up everywhere.
simply using the financial crisis of the last decade as an excuse to shrink the state. If the objective was to eliminate the deficit, turbocharge the economy and raise living standards as they claimed, it has been a total failure. If the objective was to vastly increase the wealth of the richest thousand people in the country at the expense of public services, the poor, the sick and the disabled, it has been a great success.
But then, lies and deceit are an absolutely necessary part of their existence. Were this not the case, working or lower-middle class people wouldn't vote for them.
Nye Bevan had it right.
"That is why no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party that inflicted those bitter experiences on me. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin. They condemned millions of first-class people to semi-starvation. Now the Tories are pouring out money in propaganda of all sorts and are hoping by this organised sustained mass suggestion to eradicate from our minds all memory of what we went through. But, I warn you young men and women, do not listen to what they are saying now. Do not listen to the seductions of Lord Woolton. He is a very good salesman. If you are selling shoddy stuff you have to be a good salesman. But I warn you they have not changed, or if they have they are slightly worse than they were."
Over 70 years later, those words ring perhaps more true than ever.
I'm not target audience for any of them but this group are real ####ing low lives.
Austerity supporting venal ####s.
any Tory government will have to do the bidding of the super rich who fund them. That's just a fact - it's what they do, no matter who is front of house. Changing this ideology would finish them off.
Love this "One Nation Tory" shite they come out with. What does that even mean?
