Hancock on TV this morning was another shocker. Vile cunts these Tories are.

Really awful, a simple "Yes, in hindsight I should have voted a different way, I'm glad we are doing it now" would have been appropriate & sufficient - instead of conducting himself in such a cocky manner

Because 'but Corbyn'.

And the press or, more to the point, too many people believing the press.

Because 'Corbyn's portrayal in the media'.

You only have to look on the Swindon advertiser comments on Facebook to see the fooled masses in full effect.
Yesterday some knuckle dragger told people that they "should be grateful" for the dismal food parcels being received. Currently of 67 responses to his comment. 58 of them endorsed his view.
It's literally working class folk turning on those in need of the parcel's. Nothing said about the fact that somebody is raking in public money from this scheme. Blinded fools.

And Corbyn was accused of trying to start a class war. In reality, it was already in full flow - only the tories were winning it (with help from the media).

And I'm far from a Corbyn fan, I thought he was a bit of a tool, but that doesn't mean the tories and the press are any less a bunch of self-serving wankers.

All the fucking sensible dads who thought Corbyn was a bit too radical should be having a look at themselves in the mirror right now. All they've done is enable this shower of cunts. And now we've got an opposition leader in Starmer who has so far has been less effective than Marcus Rashford and Les Dennis. Shit state of affairs.

Said it before and I'll say it again, the tories were voted in for Bexit, not much else

How many people are one unexpected job loss away from needing help from the state, but if you have never had to put up with that you don't understand it.

One thing I really struggle with is the attacks on the "liberal elite" by the Tories.  My God, if they are not elitist then fuck knows who is.

What/who is the liberal elite anyway?  And what do they want that has the tories demonising them?  Serious question.  I am not thick but I really struggle with this one.

The Tories need an "other" class to focus hate on. Especially at the moment as they follow the Trump playbook on "culture wars" etc. At various times, foreigners, benefit claimants etc will also serve the same purpose. Makes a handy "look over there" excuse too to distract from the utter shambles of the COVID deathpile, the rampant corruption around the awarding of contracts and the annihilation of the economy.

They could always go back to the topic of fishing to distract from the real issues again. Or start putting fish in the lunchboxes

Liberal elite seems to have become short hand for anyone who gives a shite about someone sho isn't themselves, see also woke....

FWIW though Corbyn was/is as much of a liberal elite as most Tories, not sure he has ever had a real job outside politics.

You ought to see some of the forums and groups out here.

Jam-packed full of arseholes looking down on other expats who have fallen on hard times. Yet, a lot of these same people are getting by month to month themselves and have little job security. (There's that, and the rampant racism and all-round ignorance).

Homo sapiens really are a horrid species at times.

Jack Monroe, who has done a lot of campaigning around this, has just tweeted that the National Food Voucher Scheme that ran in the summer is coming back next week. Which will cut out the profiteering middlemen. And before the tiresome Tory Trolls kick in, no the vouchers can't be used to buy booze, fags, crack or prossies. They never could. That was just bollocks out out by people who hate the idea that the needy and vulnerable might actually get some sort of help. Or that some fucker might not be able to profiteer on the back of it.

However, while I notice that Johnson and now even the walking embodiment of incompetence that is Williamson have scolded Chartwells over their blatant fraud in scamming the taxpayer out of 25 quid in every "hamper" they sent out, neither has suggested that Chartwells should be stripped of these contracts. Or better yet, prosecuted for fraud
