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.
