Britain’s governing class has lost all sense of duty

Aditya Chakrabortty’s article in The Guardian doesn’t go far enough. Amoral and venal doesn’t even come close.

The idea Iain Duncan Smith or Jacob Rees-Mogg or Boris Johnson or any of them could find anything close to a sense of duty is laughable, about as likely as you shitting in your own mouth. They’re psychopaths with their dicks shoved through a glory-hole of chaos, waiting for a toothless corpse to nosh them off.

Their disdain for everyone but those they see in the mirror will be their undoing. I’d like to think they’ll be castrated by the teeth of history, but who’ll be left to write a history after these lot are done.


Theresa May’s party is laying waste to its own voters

What strikes me about this story by Aditya Chakrabortty in The Guardian is how long it’s taken for people to realise what being done to them. How much suffering did Michelle Dorrell have to endured before she woke up? The sad fact is, the Tories were pushing ahead with the same policies when she “voted for them last time”.

How many others, like Michelle Dorrell, have voted and will continue to vote against their own interests? The blessing and the curse of her realisation is that she had to go through so much hardship before realising.

The Conservative Party are doing what neoliberal government’s have been doing for decades, concentrating “wealth, power and opportunity in ever-fewer hands”.

If this country is a horse, a massive “Boxer” of a horse, instead of rewarding his efforts with food, water, and care, the Tories have strung him up, cut his throat, and are watching while he empties of blood. The next step for Boxer is the glue factory. They want to wring every last penny from him.

I hope Michelle Dorrell is right, that the “Tories are screwed for a generation”. She punctuates her assertion with a moment of self doubt, a question, “aren’t they?” She knows her “kids will grow up knowing they’ve been screwed over by that lot”. What she doesn’t know is if “that lot” will be allowed to keep “laying waste to its own voters”.
