Leadership contest sees Tories admitting what they normally mislead about
Under usual circumstances, the Tories and the media tie themselves in knots to hide the truth about the Conservatives do and have done to the millions of poor and vulnerable of the UK.
But in a Tory leadership contest – at least in the events that they don’t know will make it onto the air – they speak a lot more openly in order to convince their fellow sociopaths that it’s a good idea to choose them for the top job. And here’s Rishi Sunak not just admitting, but boasting that he took money away from the ‘poorest and most deprived’ parts of England to ‘divert’ it to the already well-off:
Millions of children in this country are hungry, many of them too hungry to study – and that was before the current ‘cost of corporate greed’ crisis – and the Tories have hammered the poorest parts of the country with massive cuts ever since they got into power. ‘Rishi’ thinks that’s something to boast about – and soon we’ll see (or won’t be shown) Truss try to out-compete him in the Tory horror stakes.
Now if only there was an opposition party that didn’t want to emulate them.
