Here’s a thoughtful article from the Guardian which is worth a read. The article argues that Britain’s property-owning older investors want to preserve the status quo and don’t trust Labour’s promise of growth in the public sector. Respectfully, the article misses the point. The battlefield will be for the votes of those likely to inherit from their parents and grandparents. Conservative strategists will promote fear, arguing that a Far Left Labour government will be revolutionary, seeking to steal the wealth of ordinary people and their right to pass it to their children and grandchildren. The battle lines will be over inherited wealth. But evidence is powerful too – despite much promise, socialism has failed to delivery to the majority – it has pandered to its own privileged classes and elites. Thoughts?
Here’s a good read in the Guardian. Guardian columnist Matthew d’Ancona argues that the best the prime minister can do at this stage is smooth the path for Ruth Davidson.
This is exciting stuff and the neo-Communist Labour Party would have much to fear from Ruth Davidson as PM.
