The real face of the Tory Party
TWO RECENT events have served to illustrate the true nature of the Tory Party.
Forget David Cameron’s talk of a ‘touchy-feely’ compassionate Conservative Party. All his talk of being an ‘ordinary bloke’ and feeling ‘your pain’ is absolute rubbish. At heart the Tories are still completely out-of-touch with the ordinary British people – and indeed they hold most of us in absolute contempt.
First of all, Lord Young, Cameron’s enterprise adviser – in an interview with the Daily Telegraph – queried the “so-called recession”.
He also dismissed the 100,000 job cuts expected each year in the public sector as being “within the margin of error” in the context of a 30 million-strong workforce and said that complaints about spending cuts came from “people who think they have a right for the state to support them”.
This is all fine and dandy for Lord Young. He has no employment or money worries as he’s a multi-millionaire. Let him explain his view that Britons had “never had it so good” to the thousands of workers who’ll be loosing their jobs because of Con-Dem spending cuts!
No sooner had Lord Young resigned his position than another Tory put his foot in it!
Here, new Conservative peer Howard Flight attacked Government welfare cuts which he suggested would encourage the poor to ‘breed’ and have more children. Thus – in his interview with the London Evening Standard – he reduced most Britons to the status of cattle or sheep.
His use of such contemptible language says much more about him – and the real core views and values of the Tory Party – than poorer folks who do have children.
This then is the real face of the Tory Party. Let’s hope that ordinary British working folks remind them of this the next time they come around asking for votes!
