Tory Party Members Want Big Tax Cuts and No Increased Funding to the NHS

I think we, the left, need to get away from insulting tory ideology. It doesn't sit well with me but it is a valid political viewpoint.

People have to be persuaded that there is a better way that benefits us all, our children and grandchildren.

This kind of ideology insults fairness and compassion and suspect many have no feeling for the NHS. I have no doubt they enjoy private health care. You call for persuasion but I fear these people will never change until they shuffle off.

I see Truss promised to get rid of solar farms whilst speaking to the members, and was cheered for it. So that's 4% of our energy dispensed of during an energy crisis?

Their current level of funding has failed to address their own targets for reducing NHS backlog. Prepare for a lowering of those targets due to the economic reality that we currently find ourselves in.
You know the one, the reality where their mates continue to rake in fortunes and the rest of us get f. yet again.

Responding to the policy projects favoured by the membership rather than electorate never ends well at a General Election, see Jeremy Corbyn. I suspect a lot of this grandstanding about who is the 'most conservative' is to be elected leader and will be ditched when the have to go to a wider electorate.

Yep, just trying to appeal to the daft old racists who make up the party Membership at present. Beggars belief these loons hold so much power over the rest of the country, but they are, thankfully, in a small minority with a lot of their views.

Whoever wins will have to change tack (or at least try and appear to)a bit if they want to win an election.

The Tories will be simply trying to recover their reputation as the party of low taxation.

Also don’t underestimate how much the few million cap doffers in this country will be grateful for an extra £5 a week in their pockets come election time no matter how bad the Tories have been.

The NHS is under more danger now than ever before in my opinion, it would not surprise me if the Tories presented a tax cuts and insurance based NHS ‘package‘ in their next manifesto.

This is an outdated view as the Tory party has been courting the Asian community for years (the self made angle) so look at the party new blood including rishi and javid you’ll see that the male pale stale tag is changing.

Amin believes Muslim voters are “natural Conservatives” due to their mutual focus on business, family and faith. The figures show that there was highest support for the Tories from Asian voters, compared with other ethnic minorities.
