Spoof election trailer contains some home truths

Last Updated: May 30, 2017By

This is satire, but it does contain a few uncomfortable accuracies.

For example: “Will you vote against your own best interests?”

Anybody not earning more than £80,000 a year who votes Conservative will be doing just that.

    In fact people earning quite a bit more than £80,000 pa would be acting against their own interests too. On, say, £100,000pa, they’d be paying an extra £1000 pa in tax, which is still a lot less than they’d pay for private health insurance and to put money aside for their kids’ tuition fees at uni.

    It was pointed out to me, last even, that landlords who earn less that £80K a year will be worse off, certainly if that is their sole source of income.
    I still wouldn’t vote Conservative; the Party seems to have no understanding of the lives of ordinary, everyday people, who lead ordinary, everyday lives, with ordinary, everyday problems
