Thread Name: BS: Tory liars attack youth education
Subject: RE: BS: Tory liars attack youth education
The tories are ideologically opposed to the NHS and have a real contempt for socially progressive policies like the EMA, the minimum wage etc. The real problem is that the majority of people in this country actually want the social structure of the country to be supported by government; this helps provide a framework for individual development. The tories however, unable to rid themselves of the myopic fog of self-interest and social ineptness want to hold fast and develop a system that rewards greed and selfishness; the reason they allow tuition fees to be hiked is because it won't effect them. 80 of the MPs who voted are millionaires who received a free university education.
There's no doubt the NHS needs sorting out - the glut of managers protecting their own jobs and disregarding real clinical issues is a real problem.
That the government is a coalition is irrelevant; the Lib Dems actually lost seats in the last election and there are currently acting as political human shields and protecting Cameron et al from the flak they so richly deserve. This is a tory government and it causes problems for the vast majority of ordinary people. Ignore that at your peril - as Thatcher found out with the poll tax.
