Will he be helping to kill Africans with a more concerted approach than UK people? I heard the UN report was met with the usual: “Nonsense”. This place is like last days of USSR from Herzog’s Gorbachev doc but where nobody thinks. Friends are saying it’s fascism. Is it?
Yeah, I (kind of) get that, but even if you're relatively well off and might benefit from, say, a reduction in income tax, or a boost to the value of your house, what good is that when the whole country around you is, quite literally, going to shit?

It could be you. Huge motivating factor for the tory working class.
I think it's the power of that individualist fantasy, it's a very strong pull. All the left can offer, as we've worked out is 'actioning a blue skies approa h', which isn't fooling anyone nowadays cos its frankly bullshit.
So in the face of that, people are looking after number one.
