Totally agree NI, it is a good post. There are a number of salient points that cut right to the heart of the matter. It’s what Bucks frequently bucks about-labelling Tories as nasty. I’m not saying their aren’t good and decent Tories out there, of course there is. But this prevailing attitude of successive cabinets (and particularly this one-that Cummings conditioning was a great success) that poverty is to be pitied while completely rejecting effective assistance and responsibility is similar to Dickensian times. Take the latest school meals scandal.
Being wealthy and successful? Interesting how for the Tories this is all about individual effort. Particularly, those that have come from rich stock!
This is my problem with Bucks advocating opportunities and benefits from Brexit. For whom? Johnson’s first year has made that abundantly clear! And how are business people going to benefit from increased competition and barriers? Ah yes, more rights to treat and pay their workers much less. It’s a no brainer for some unscrupulous employers and I’d be amazed if Bucks isn’t aware of this.
