Am I in the Twilight Zone? Have I arrived on an alternative-dimension planet Earth? Monday at the Conservative Party Conference was just plain weird. Surreal even.
We had the tasteful experience of the Health Secretary and public-sector-plunderer-extraordinaire, Jeremy Hunt, telling everybody what a great idea it is to cut tax credits because it will make people work like a slave-labour force in Communist China.
We heard the Tories getting their underwear in knots about the security practises of Group 4 Securicor… G4S has a startling history of blunders, such that any intelligent Government would normally run a mile before awarding it a contract. It therefore goes without saying that the present Government keeps awarding it contracts, and the Tory Party also keeps using G4S to provide security at its Conference every year. It could allow the police to sort that side of things out, but that would mean depending on the public sector when there is a private sector option available, and, well, that is just not an option, is it?
In the evening, Jeremy Corbyn addressed the public outside Manchester Cathedral without any barriers at all, and with just fifteen minutes’ work, he dominated the day – during the Conservative Party Conference.
Here’s a point: If the Tories hired G4S to handle security at their conference, why were there police marksmen at the public march/demonstration against them on Sunday?
