Maybe you don’t like Corbyn – but do you really want to vote for THIS?

On the eve of the Conservative manifesto launch, these are the policies Theresa May has already trailed.

Her intention seems clear:

She intends to run the cruelest government since the Dark Ages.

It is ideologically-motivated, unjustifiable, homicidal hatred dressed as political policy.

The headline policies are scrapping winter fuel payments – marking a clear desire for pensioners to die of hypothermia during the coldest months of the year – and scrapping free school meals for children – meaning most youngsters will go hungry, will be unable to concentrate on their lessons and will end up less well-educated and at a disadvantage in the jobs market.

But she has also announced more cruel policies.

The first is to end the ‘triple lock’ ensuring that state pensions rise in line with the cost of living. This announces very clearly her intention to persecute the pensioners who are her strongest voter base.

Pensioners – will you still vote for the Conservatives? They want you dead!

The second is to end the promise not to increase the amount of tax paid by the general population.

This means the rich will not pay more but you will – in order to subsidise even more heavily their fabulous, privileged lifestyles.

You will get nothing.

They are privatising the NHS to make way for a health system you won’t be able to afford.

They are making it impossible to claim social security benefits.

They have cut police numbers, the fire service, ambulance provision.

They have cut grants to local authorities, meaning rubbish and recycling collections are becoming rarities. Wasn’t Labour voted out after a winter in which rubbish was left on the streets?

The saddest part of this is that some of the poorest people in the UK will still vote for Theresa May.

This Writer heard a woman interviewed on the radio a couple of days ago, saying of Mrs May, “She’s been thrown in at the deep end…” implying that the prime minister was doing very well, all things considered.

It seems nobody had told this poor interviewee that Mrs May has been a member of Parliament (for Maidenhead) for more than 20 years, and had admitted wanting to be prime minister at least since she became a member of the then-Conservative shadow cabinet, seven years ago.

The Tory attitude to this woman, and all those like her, can be summed up in this clip from a radio interview with Philip Hammond:

No doubt the Tories will try to dress up their cruelty as “economic responsibility” or some such drivel.

It is ideologically-motivated, unjustifiable, homicidal hatred dressed as political policy.

Maybe you don’t like Jeremy Corbyn.

But I can’t believe anybody would be gullible enough to vote to harm themselves, as Mrs May clearly expects.

    Grammar Schools are not necessarily bad, although the rest of her manifesto is pretty vile and I am certainly not voting for her.

    1. Florence

      Thomas, money is being taken from other schools to pay for grammar schools. Schools budgets have already been cut to funnel money into academies. There is an online app that shows how much every school is due to lose. Class sizes are already too high.

  2. Roland Laycock

    Grammar schools are very bad, some children switch into gear later than others, in the grammar system children that don’t pass there 11 plus are stopped from progressing as my old teacher once said people that didn’t pass where destined for the factory floor so you lot are destined to go further

    Why would Phil Hammond, Mother T and most of the Cons have a grip on any grass roots situation…they are clueless. Maybe more of the constituents need to get round these Hoorays surgeries and tell them to their smarmy faces how it is out there. They are your alleged MP representatives and they obviously think everything is fine and everyone is coping with inflation without any increases in real wages and their benefit reductions…..except of course the salary increases paid to Directors and their Boards, and MPs’ who for some inexplicable reason (total greed!) have had huge increases in their incomes last time I looked was well into high double digits and still rising. That’s to cover the Bolly and caviar increases. I actually think JC should look at winter fuel payments ie exclude the rich and those retired to sunny climes from receiving this handout. However my real fear would be the cost of actually properly administrating and policing this idea, ie army of expensive civil servants, would negate the savings achieved. It depends where the cut off point was struck to be called rich. The rest of the Cons manifesto is typical of an austerity party that is a busted flush and got no goody bribes left to offer under their debt reduction mantra…. only the stuff that they feared launching which will actually hurt the voting public. It’s now crunch time so smell the coffee and get on the voting list and make sure your votes are cast for Labour that gets rid of this terrible Government and leader.. Don’t get fooled by her strong and stable her long track record is weak and useless and certainly not a person that can deliver as per the important immigration reduction target that was an utter failure……and increased under her casual “gaze”. (she certainly does not deserve under her watch as she was asleep on the job) to busy cutting police forces, privatising the prison and services with useless contractors. Soap box away now.

    “The saddest part of this is that some of the poorest people in the UK will still vote for Theresa May.”

    Then they’ll get what they deserve, it’s that simple.

      1. The Toffee

        You’re right – WE won’t deserve it.

        Unfortunately, the idiots who’ll be voting tory for pathetic reasons such as: “That Corbyn – he doesn’t wear a tie!” could well be the ones who inflict more misery on their class.

        Only when it comes back to bite them on the arse (And it WILL if the tories get in as a result)) will they realise their crass stupidity.

        By then it’ll be too late.

        I mean, who felt sorry for that soft melt on BBCQT when she bleated that she’d voted tory and now they were taking from her?

        I know I didn’t.

    I just wonder if JC missed a trick not joining the TV debate leaders lineup. I think he would have done very well with his partys many plus point agenda items compared to the others nothing new mantras. His appearing might have put some real credibility behind the developing thread that Mother T is so arrogant that she and her party have got it so buttoned up she does not have to make appearances. Just felt a little let down that JC didn’t appear and lay out his stall that had far better offers than the Cons and the others.

    1. Roger

      All publicity is good publicity and I think Corbyn was very mistaken not to have put his case forward during any debate, whether Mrs May attended or not. Getting the message out their is essential and Labour fluffed it when it came to TV debates.

      Really, really, really silly.

      A very major opportunity to big up Labour’s agenda and policies missed.

      1. Mike Sivier Post author

        From what I’m seeing today, I don’t think he – or Labour – really needed it.
