  1. All right, I have a cup of Yorkshire tea and a plate of hobnobs in front of me, so ready to go. Since we don’t know how things will go let’s start with some facts about the Nasty Party, aka the British Conservative Party or Tories and their record in government.
    One of Elizabeth May’s chief ministers scolded voters saying ‘There is no magic money tree’ to pay for all the things the Labour Party has promised. That’s because they have given all the fruit on the tree to the wealthy. Corporate Tax was slashed from 26% to 19% a give away of nearly 64B British pounds. Further Capital Gains Tax reductions saved corporations 800B British pounds. They cut the Inheritance Tax by 3.6 B pounds. But the most revealing factoid is this: since 2009, the richest 1000 individuals doubled their wealth to 658 B British pounds. Everyone else got austerity.
