    I say all that as someone who is more likely to vote Conservative than not.
    Except like most "likely" Tory voters, I suspect you will vote Tory again whatever happens.

    Lets be honest, if the tories had eroded workers rights without touching contractors, half the dicks on here would have been cheering. The tears only exist because it's them that will take the giant shafting.
    This is just about spot on in my estimation. The average Joe voting Tory in the UK seems to have some kind of masochistic "shaft us some more" mentality where they see the interests and aspirations of independently wealthy capitalists with zero commitment to any country as aligned to their small time UK ones.

    I should be alright no matter what happens, but there are many who aren't in such a fortunate position.

    I have wealth to protect, hence a vote for Corbyn wasn't a smart move, if the Conservative party removes all workers rights from the entire populace that would be a step too far in the other direction and I'd become a Labour voter.

    I am not a sheep, the electorate is becoming much more clued up and fluid since Brexit.

    It's a good thing Boris, Javid and Moggy have no interest in finding a way to take your wealth then

    That part is not exactly hard to spin, just look around

    You think they have, given the election result and that we're only about to finish phase 1 of Brexit?

    Probably a lot people of your/our generation will be alright, but what about your kids/grandkids?

    What people don't understand is that they should vote thinking about the future generations and not only thinking about themselves. Just because we managed to make some money, doesn't mean our kids will.

    Yes but that's not pertinent to this thread.

    Oh...it's in general.

    Carry on, as you were.
