How Much Do The Tories Despise The British?
With the news that one woman has been badly burned the question arises as to what Francis Maude thought he was doing when he urged people to hoard petrol in jerrycans. Was it simply stupidity on his part or an unthinking moment when he said something that, if he had thought about it, he would never have said at all? Apparently not, as the follwing extract from the explaination given by the government to its constituency associations plainly shows; “This is our Thatcher moment. In order to defeat the coming miners’ strike, she stockpiled coal. When the strike came, she weathered it, and the Labour Party, tarred by the strike, was humiliated. In order to defeat the coming fuel drivers’ strike, we want supplies of petrol stockpiled. Then, if the strike comes, we will weather it, and Labour, in hock to the Unite union, will be blamed.” Francis Maude's comments were simply a cynical ploy to score political points from Labour and he didn't care that it put people's lives at risk or that it could damage the country. And that sums up the Tories view of politics. There is no thought about what is best for the country, no empathy for the vast majority of its people and no regard for anything other than themselves. We are there to be manipulated, mislead and hoodwinked, useful only inasmuch as we provide the taxes that are necessary to fill their pockets and those of their wealthy mates. As the "News In Shorts" has always maintained, they regard us as peasants.
