After years of unequivocal support for the Tories it won’t wash to say they’re as bad as Labour, BI, in fact it’s pretty lame after over a decade of the Tories messing up. Vote Tory, get a recession. So much for Gurn’s insights!
But, it’s not just your wealth, they’re bad for your health too, as we’ve learnt over the past months/years.
However, if you look at countries which are well administered and where people trust their governments, you find they got Covid under control much more effectively. Like Germany, Singapore South Korea, and Vietnam. That’s because their public management and admin. is largely insourced, unlike here, where decades of outsourcing and privatization have brought fewer options and capacities in the face of the crisis, as well as a decline in public trust.
So it’s not governments in general which are the problem, it’s THIS government which can’t be trusted.
There’s a real hunger for honesty and truth in the world, so democracy can flourish. But what do you do? Along with a hernia of right-wingers you contribute to a tide of misinformation and lies, which led to fkwits like Johnson and Trump being elected. Like the jonnies, you reap what you sow, BI.
