"No it isn't. "
Yest it is and it has never attempted to hide that fact
It is a natural progression of the feudalist system it replaced the dominance of the wealthy and the powerful over the peasant's/workers - that's history Dave
Even at the best of times, the bank balances of those that have are placed above the general good
Today we are seeing this writ large - people are being forced into "a new normality" when it is fairly obvious that winter will bring a second wave of the virus - as is already beginning to happen in some countries which have jumped the gun
Johnson got a bad scare after his sickness - he still looks pretty shaken; he stood up and swore that the lockdown would not be lifted too soon
He was persuaded otherwise by a divided cabinet and business pressure
It will be argued when things go wrong that the risk was taken "for the good of the country" - the way the economy is heading, all working people have to look forward to is the hope of a breadline job stacking shelves for Morrisons
The only beneficiaries will be the wealthiest and most secure of the shareholders

By the way, most attempts to "change the system" managed miracles beyond belief - semi-feudal empires turned into world leaders with massive iprovements in lifing standards across the board, and world-leading edcucation and health in less than half a century - despite constant outside interference, Civil Wars, a world War and a cold war - and corrupt (even insane) leaders
These were achieved by huge sacrifices, sure, but we've all been asked to make them, whatever system we live under
Capitalism relies on an unequal society with the wealthy dominating a subservient 'lower order' - that is a flawed society

Amen to everything you wrote Steve - Starmer is a ruthless Blair writ large - at least 'Our Tone' started off with principles - if Keerie has his way, they will be things of the past
