Tories in trouble as voters identify issues they’re ignoring as reasons to vote them out

Sunak and Truss: whoever wins the race to become prime minister will not be smiling when they have to deal with the issues that might force their government out of office – and they realise they have no answers.

Oh dear, oh dear: the Conservative Party is facing electoral collapse after people who voted Tory in 2019 identified the issues the next prime minister should tackle – and they’re mostly issues that party wants to ignore.

According to a Daily Express article, these include:

  • Inflation
  • The cost of living/energy bills
  • Delays in treatment by the National Health Service

Neither Liz Truss nor Rishi Sunak have shown much interest in any of these – having to be dragged into discussing the topics.

The only issue discussed by the voters the newspaper polled, in which the Conservatives have shown any interest, is immigration – a fake issue created by the Tory government as part of its ongoing “divide and rule” policy of presenting us all with an enemy to hate.

Sadly, they seem to have fooled a large number of people with it.

Whoever takes up the – some would say poisoned – chalice of the premiership in September, they will have to address these problems as a matter of urgency, or face the prospect of losing all the Parliamentary seats Boris Johnson won in 2019. That is a career-ending prospect.

Tory minister says no to freezing energy bills – but will ‘targeted packages’ work?

James Heappey: he doesn’t want to freeze energy bills, and looks delighted to be threatening you with poverty.

This is real Tory dedication to profit over people: they don’t want to freeze rocketing energy bills, even when an energy firm asks them to.

Scottish Power boss Keith Anderson called on Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng to consider the plan, and has also submitted it to Scottish First Secretary Nicola Sturgeon.

But Armed Forces Minister James Heappey has already said Kwarteng isn’t seriously considering the proposal, which is expected to cost £100 billion.

It seems he’s upset about paying such an “eye-watering” sum to keep us all out of destitution.

Instead, he supports a vague idea put forward by both Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, to provide “targeted” help to those who need it most.

Who’s willing to bet that this means rich people get the lion’s share of the cash?

Remember the “targeted” help Sunak announced in May? He promised £400 to every home.

It was only after we read the small print that we realised people who own several homes would receive the £400 several times.

So the richest people got to benefit more, while the poorest were put at risk of mental illness, worrying about how to make ends meet.

Tory doubletalk – screwing you over since 2010.

Autumn energy price raises may leave you DESTITUTE, says Martin Lewis. Who cares?

Martin Lewis: he is predicting a debt catastrophe for millions of people in October – and you’re probably one of those affected.

Coming energy price increases will swallow all the help the UK’s Tory government has provided to bill-payers so far, leaving us all severely out-of-pocket while energy shareholders pocket huge bonuses.

“Money Saving Expert” Martin Lewis has called for immediate action from our politicians – all of whom seem determined to pretend they don’t know anything about the danger facing millions of people because of their stupid political decisions over the last few years.

Bear it in mind: there is no real shortage of gas or electricity – or any other power source. You are simply being deprived of it in order to make someone rich.

Here’s Mr Lewis:

He has previously appealed for Tory politicians to get a grip on the issue in a video message last month, when he made it very clear that the price rises don’t just affect your ability to pay bills but may also affect your ability – for example – to get a mortgage.

Mr Lewis has also warned against the pitfalls of joining a campaign calling for people simply not to pay their bills, starting in October. He said energy suppliers could enforce a pre-payment meter, cut off energy supply or impact consumers’ credit scores negatively.

‘National shame’ of rough sleepers will continue because the Tories don’t care

Who said homeless people were what you stepped over, on your way to the opera?

Ah yes, it was Sir George Young, formerly the Conservative Party’s Chief Whip (not to be confused with Lord Young, mentioned in the article excerpt below).

His attitude epitomises Tory carelessness about those who don’t have a place to live, even though it has been proved that finding a home for such people is cheaper on the state than leaving them to fend for themselves.

But then, we all knew the Tories don’t want to help people. They want to feel superior.

Who can imagine the thrill of superiority that rushed through the Tories and their supporters when a homeless man actually died during the recent cold snap?

Arguments that homelessness is due to immigration are, of course, nonsense. Houses aren’t rationed because foreign people are taking them; they are rationed because this keeps prices artificially inflated and provides nice profits for Tory landlords (many of whom, it seems, have Parliamentary seats).

So don’t expect the Conservative Government to jump at any initiatives to end homelessness. They like putting people on the streets.

Ahead of an opposition day debate … on homelessness, Labour pledged to double the number of homes ringfenced for rough sleepers and expand the Clearing House scheme run by St Mungo’s charity for the Greater London Authority.

The scheme, set up by then Tory housing minister Lord Young in 1991, provides 3,750 flats in 40 housing associations across London for homeless people.

Labour said in government it would extend this to cities like Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool and Manchester, and create 4,000 permanent new reserved flats or houses for rough sleepers, let at affordable rents to British nationals or others eligible for social housing.

The party called on Theresa May to back the scheme by striking a deal with housing associations to make the homes available now and by funding replacements.
