Thatcher was in power throughout my formative years from 7 until 19 and she just destroyed society. Tories always paint things at an individual level, "look what our policies will do for you..." and always turn a blind eye to the importance of society. It's why they seem to be happy having charities fund the work the state should be doing. I don't trust Tories and their hideous incompetence means I am totally bewildered when people say they do trust them. Every time the Tories are in power they fuck up the economy.First, Labour invariably borrows less than the Conservatives. The data always shows that.
And second, Labour has always repaid debt more often than the Conservatives, and has always repaid more debt, on average.
But Tories are the "natural party of government". By which they mean "a party that feel entitled to power". I fucking hate them.
I know I'm biased.
That sums them up very nicely for me too.
They also have this spurious idea that choice is crucial in things like medicine and education.
It is a complete ref herring - we just need good, well led schools and hospitals.
Competition in these areas is just bullshit.
Like all cod socialists, you seem to have completely forgotten about the thirteen years of Labour government, when all the policies you mention as being Tory policies, were carried out with some enthusiasm. Certainly much of the financial burden on Schools and Hospitals is down to the Labour party's voracious appetite for Private finance initiatives,and those extortionate 30 year fixed interest repayments Blair was so keen to " take advantage " of.
