It's certainly not the Labour We grew up with and it's certainly not a party I could or would trust Den.

I suppose I will never understand why working class people want to be a Tory.



I will never understand why working class people, when they get to be financially secure think they are Tories. I'm more of a Labour party man now than I have ever been and I'm certainly more Labour now than those idiots that are supposed to represent us at Westminister

Phil I like to think I am fairly Financially secure, but one thing I can promise you is I am certainly no Tory.

What annoys me more than people who think they have to be Tories because they are now financially secure, are those working class people who have always voted Tory. It's something from when there were only the Tory's and the Liberals to vote for I suppose.

Everybody in my grandmothers house where I was brought up for half of my life were Tories, even my own father, but in my other grandparents house they were staunch labour. So I suppose I should have been a Liberal?

The arguments I had with my uncles over politics was unbelievable, but I don't think they were really politically motivated because I don't think they ever voted, even when there were candidates worth voting for. The reason was the way they were brought up in a Tory household so therefore they classed themselves as Tories. I think that unless you form your own opinion about politics you are never really motivated.

I can say Labour, Lib dem and Tories have all shown themselves to be a real buch of scumbags lately. None of them have shown any regard for the voting public or even their own supporters which I don't think they deserve anymore.

I have never really been interested in politics but I am interested in myself. In fact I believe I am ONLY interested in myself.
Until the recent (New) Labour Conservatives got in, run by everyones favourite expert on everything - Uncle Tony, I hadn't had it so good since Auntie Margaret was in charge.
She is therefore my political hero(ine).

It may be worth taking into account that I haven't worked under many governments. I have worked for 38 years and been self employed for 26 of them.

I don't get annoyed by people, mostly working class labourites, who go about bad mouthing the Conservatives, and Mrs Thatcher in particular, because I know they only do it for their own selfish reasons. Just because I don't understand them doesn't mean they are right, even though they seem so convinced that they must be, so I just let them get on with it.

Perhaps I might mention that I have my own thoughts on the class system.
It only seems to be mentioned and reviled by those at the bottom. I think it is a wonderful relic from the past and enjoy my position therein.

I always bring wine, it is impolite to turn up empty handed.

Volty

I know you cannot be serious, but it's not good form to wind people up. If I were to answer your preposterous statement I would end up by banning myself from the forum. As David Clennon said, "The moral climate within the ruling class in this country is not that different from the moral climate within the ruling class of Hitler's Germany".
