You have your opinion on stupidity I have mine.
The well off mostly vote Tory to look after themselves rather than the country as a whole,the rest who voted were had and stupid enough to believe the sales talk and 'getting brexit done'
as the alternatives were deemed unpalatable
Deemed unpalatable by whom in the run up to the election,the righ wing media andnmultinational companies who poured millions of £££'s into the sales blurb?
And why were the oposition so unpalatable?
IMO because the status quo had to be maintained,where profit counts above all.
In addition those voting Tory were under 50pc of those eligible to vote.
Is that democracy?
To my mind it doesn't warrant a landslide and an overwhelming majority in thr HofC
The system's broken and rigged
I would also point out there is no single history,but rather a series of histories depending on perspective
Did I post otherwise?
I think we agree on that
Facts can be questiioned,and real history focuses on causes and effects events.Many facts are omitted or obscured resulting in an unfavourable or favourable presentation of events.
Agreed, and as we know only too well the winners write history.
I wonder what history will make of the past ten years of Tory government?
We already know what it makes of the previous ten of Nude Labour
As for the Thatcher and Major years make of them what you will IMO they laid down the building blocks for the disasterous decade we've just had,and set to get worse with the present bunch of schoolboys voted in to do a wo/man's job that's beyond their capabilities.
With likes of Cummings setting policy,and a pro football player able to U turn government policy,for the better I might add, within a 12 hour period,whilst the handling of the pandemic has been nothing short of an utter disasterous mish mash leading to almost the highest death toll in the world.
How unpalatable do the Tories have to get before people realise they wear had by cowboy salesmen who can't run the proverbial in a brewery?
