British people are just another asset for the globalised economy to extract wealth from. Whether you turn on the taps, switch on the lights or commute to work - money is leaving this country hand over fist in dividends for running our public services.
I think on that, we have an accord.

Oh , it will.

If you think Labour voters are disaffected by the 14yrs of the Tories, just wait until they’ve had 5 yrs of a Starmer Labour government.

I use a Vanguard fund which tracks 100% global equities because, as it's an index fund, it's quite cheap.

l and many many more will be glad to get away from the awful premierships of Johnson, Truss and Sunak.

Starmer while being a dull politician will be just the safe pair of hands this country is crying out for rather then the constant Tory shitshows and psychodramas of the last 10 years.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

One of the "major" reasons why the Tories are toast is that Labour have positioning themselves as a replacement centre ground Party with basically, pretty boring, non-threatening (to the majority) policies. They are essentially what the Tories were in the past before this current lot embraced right wing populism and culture wars.

The lurch to the right has left a hole in the centre ground which Labour are positioned to fill. The Tories are finished as a party of government for at least 10 years, possibly more. The irony is that it is all their own doing

Hopefully a lot more, the damage they've done is seismic, 250 people a week are dying needlessly due to waiting for bed in A&E

How exactly have Tories lurched to the right? Laughable.

The reason they’re in the hole is because they haven’t been right wing enough.

That's what Labour supporters said of Labour after 2015 and their answer was Corbyn. Politics in the UK is won in the centre ground, so Labour has had its victories by moving right and the Tories by moving to the left of their base.

Anyway the Tories aren't losing because they're not right-wing enough. They're losing because they're incompetent.

Elections might be won or lost in the centre ground but none of Britain’s problems are solved there.

True unless there is self-evident proof that a radical policy shift is needed. Energy or Water sectors are good examples, together with re-aligning with the EU.

Here's an interesting YouGov tracker on perceptions of where the Conservatives are on the left/centre/right of politics:

https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics...arty-alignment

In latest polling, the 20% think the Tories are very right wing, 26% think fairly right wing and 14% slightly right of centre. Pretty damning figures.

Also:

Tories now seen as being as right wing as 2014-16 era UKIP

Quote:
The Conservatives and the right

By contrast, any traces of David Cameron’s modernisation project have long since disappeared. Cameron had dragged perceptions of the Conservatives significantly towards the centre during his period as opposition leader, from a starting point of +53 in our first poll in February 2006 to +37 in March 2010 – close to Cameron’s own rating of +34.

The ratings of the Conservatives and their leader then lurched rightwards when the party came to power in 2010, however, and remained largely consistent thereafter – during his time as prime minister Cameron’s score averaged +44 and his party’s +48.

Theresa May was seen as further to the right than Cameron (averaging +54 as PM) and the Conservatives likewise under her (averaging +57).
but don't forget, they can solve all their problems by lurching further to the right as "they haven’t been right wing enough"

Labour has its own issues atm.

This, apparently, after another 11 quit in Burnley a few months ago.
