    ****ed if I know who I'm supposed to vote for, at least the tories will get brexit done whereas Corbyn is gonna dither around for another year or two achieving nothing whilst going 'huh why won't the EU negotiate a good deal after I discarded all leverage we had by agreeing to its demands before we even reached the negotiation table'.

    But then the tories seem to make everything else tulip

    And I'm sure labour's attack on the rich will extend to contractors as well, although I don't think he has the follow through to make anything actually stick

    Of course, to save face they are saying they will only go after the "elite", but again their definition of elite means anyone with a decent job, some savings and investments.

    I can't fathom why these 2 are still in charge of the party. Considering the farce that is the Conservative party right now, any half-decent centralist Labour government would have stood a great chance of winning the election.

    exactly and it's always been the same. It's the politics of envy. It's all about levelling people down and not up.

    With social mobility, and chances to join the rich, going down, that is likely to prove increasingly popular.

    Yes.

    As much as every other person on this forum and as much as anyone else who works hard, owns a house, invests for their old age, educates their children to be good for the world and doesn't scrounge off the system.

    Apparently that makes me and a heap of other good people the target of McDonnellonomics: drag everyone down to the lowest level and ensure that they are dependent on the state.

    Here we are in the 21st century and politics still basically comes down to:

    You know Grasshoppers can become locusts?

    So yes its a perfect analogy.

    Why do you think the analogy is idiotic?

    Are you suggesting all people who are poor have struggled through the good years building up reserves for the cold times so aren't a bit like a Grasshopper?

    This may not be a very popular opinion on this board but many poor people are not poor entirely due to their own profligacy. We all know the stories of unemployed people with 8 kids and Sky TV but that's not the norm.
