It’s just another lame attempt at distraction, Heathy, because he knows the statements about inequality (above) are all true.
You’ve said you come from Scunthorpe, BI. I expect you grew up modestly, maybe in a council house, but because you had some luck in life – assisted by the welfare state and free education – you decided you were a Tory, that they were ‘your people’.
So, now you feel justified in denying fairness to others, especially to those who are elderly, or disabled, or ill and needing care, or even just trying to get a job. Or, those who are marginalized through simply because they have a different religion, or colour, or gender.
If you were born to privilege, the idea of others becoming less disadvantaged, catching up, or even ‘equal’, must feel like oppression.
But I doubt you were born with a silver spoon, BI, and in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, in an area like North Lincs. you would have been a direct beneficiary of socialism, which incidentally, used to be a feature of all the main parties. Yet now, you’ve become the white equivalent of an ‘uncle Tom’, a white ‘choc-ice’, denying the existence of inequality and benefits to others, while laughing up your sleeve about it. In other words, thoroughly disgusting.
