The Hapless Conservatives

We have had some hapless leaders but Theresa May has just been hopeless.
The Conservatives have always been known as the nasty party and this Government  have kept that label accurate but Theresa May just seems to fall from one awful decision to the next.
The Brexit debacle which is still spinning in the wind to the decision to hold a General Election she couldn't lose but saw her majority almost wiped out and now the Windrush cock-up with her seeming to point to everyone else and everyone else just pointing straight back at her.
At first she refused to meet the West Indian delegation in the country for the Commonwealth meeting and after the media got hold of the Windrush stories, where people we had invited over were refused benefits, NHS treatment and housing as they were unable to prove they had been living in Britain, she then decided she would meet them after all.
When it was then leaked that the boarding cards, the only proof the incomers had to prove they had been living here had been destroyed in 2010, Theresa May blamed the Labour Government.
Nope, was a Home Office decision and you were in charge of the Home Office at the time the decision was made cried the Home Office staff backed up bu the currenmt Home Secretary who refused to accept the blame for the cock-up.
The strangest part of the story is that the Conservatives have been awful, have inflicted severe austerity and Brexit upon us and have been caught out in so many ways so many times but still they are neck and neck in the polls with Labour who should be sprinting away from one of the most dysfunctional British Governments many of us have ever seen.
The Labour Party should be asking itself the same question because if they can't take power away from this shower, then they never will.

Conservatives are only considered nasty by people that want things to be given to them and by far left people that want to atone (using other people’s eanrings) for the ills of generations past.

More because they slash, cut and privatise and enforce severe austerity which effects the poorest so the name is deserved.

right, like i said, the people that want to have things given to them, and the people that attribute all the problems of the poor to everyone but the poor. especially past generations - aka "white privilege".

Yep, like cutting the top rate of tax so highest earners pay less tax while closing libraries to save money, that sort of thing.

libraries? really. ever heard of the world wide web? you find great assets on the WWW, like FallingOnABruise...

Are you illegally downloading books from the web????

Keep Life Simple said...

no. you sound like the press, just making up shit.

you might try using the WWW, there are lots of books in public domain - especially the most important books.

also, what is your obsession with books. does a thought have to be in a book to be of value?

lastly, of the 60 or so books studied getting my MS in data science, all but 2 or 3 were free to the public to download.

try using the WWW...

The www has Stephen kings latest book or the other fiction books that make up the two thirds of books which are not reference books at the library?

fiction... fiction is a waste of the earth's limited resources and a hit on the environment.

FICTION IS NOT REAL... IT IS IMAGINARY... IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS NOT TRUTH (kinda like what the left-biased press publishes). THE ONLY THING LEARNED FROM A FICTION BOOK IS HOW WEIRD THE AUTHOR IS...

OF course, the left love fiction because is allows them to get away from reality. A place where they don't work for the things they have... oh shit, the left have made that real with taxes... damn you left
