Don’t let a Tory tell you it’s your ‘life choices’ that make you poor

Briefly – Tories love to tell people who have failed to achieve riches that they only have themselves to blame.

This is not true…

That’s right – there is always a degree of government interference in our lives.

For example: tuition fees are topical at the moment. The imposition of a £45,000 (or thereabouts) charge clearly limits the number of people able to pay – or willing to accept the debt. And the debt increases. Governments choose whether to impose or lift that charge – a decision that can change the course of many lives.

Political decisions open – or, more likely under Conservative governments, close – doors for millions of people, every day.

And obviously, if it’s only your choices that improve your quality of life, then why do Tories insist that our lives will be better if we elect them and not anybody from another party? It’s an obvious logical fallacy.

Anybody who claims that failure (or indeed success) is entirely the responsibility of an individual is lying.

    The tories have proven that crime definitely pays….especially where MPs are concerned…

    Ahh but there are ‘good choices and bad choices.’ Good choices are ones voting for fascist tory criminals and bad choices are protesting and demonstrating against our fascist dictatorship – aka the fascist tories!

    Clever propaganda that old trope ‘you made your choice so you’re responsible for your poverty!’ Such mendacious lies ensure the fascist tories are never held accountable for causing impoverishment to millions of women, children and men! Not my problem guv say the fascist tories – you are to blame!
