Big Al Whittle BS: UK General election December 12 2019 (927* d) RE: BS: UK General election December 12 2019 16 Dec 19


'But Tories are always in it for what they can get'

Just where have you got in these tortured ponderings where ordinary people are not allowed to have any material aspirations?

And the people you're taking this gospel from Mark Steel (on the richest comedians register) and Diane Abbot (net worth 3 million)

When I started work as a teacher, my wage packet was thirteen quid a week. that was after 3 years at college. A third of my wage packet was confiscated by the government and half of my wife's. But we figured that was allright. the government were going to take care of us.

Then along comes Thatcher with the dutch auction offering lower taxes each election. then along comes the free movement of European citizens. they all want council houses, free education, free health care.

So surprise surprise! the government can't afford to pay my teaching pension - have to delay for five years. Ladies born a couple of years after me fare even worse.

just why British citizens aren't allowed to be 'in it for themselves' to the extent of getting a decent pension that they have paid for, even.

the hole in the bottom of the Corbyn boat finance wise was the fact that - however much he raised by tax (and most people thought he was bullshitting) that free movement of EU citizens would gobble it up.
