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

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.

This is an outdated view as the Tory party has been courting the Asian community for years (the self made angle) so look at the party new blood including rishi and javid you’ll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.
It isn't compared to the general population as a whole.

83% of the general population is 'White British'. Tory members - 95%
Median age of pop is 40, Tory members 57
53% of pop is ABC1, Tory members 80%

They've identified that not just some white people are wealthey, greedy and self interested; would be crazy if they hadn't.

Five years tops before we have to start paying for health care
Would have always disagreed with a comment like this in the past and whilst I don't think it'll be within 5 years, I'm absolutely bewildered by how little fight there's been over the past 5 years with the F***ing the populace have received.

The planned opening/promotion of warm spaces this winter for people who can't afford to heat should be enough to bring people to the streets and instead we're sat here watching two out of touch ***** openly talk about how they plan to make things even worse.

We're suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

I'm an optimistic person but I've got two kids who are 7 and 4 and am really starting to think things might just not get better.

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.
Hope so

Their membership has still got a high proportion of white male pensioners

Maybe we aren’t making our presence felt anymore.

“ Rome's working class, the plebeians had little individual power. Grouped together, however, they became a Roman mob and had to be handled carefully. By the first century AD, plebeians comprised a formal class, which held its own meetings, elected its own officials and kept its own records”

Tories fiddling while Rome burns scenario. Someone should set fire to Tory HQ before they raze the nation to the ground.

But why do over 50’s who will rely far far more on the NHS, state help such as pensions and other benefits and public services etc favour a political party which is ideologically opposed to such provisions?
Aye that is the great conundrum. Why indeed? You can understand those with nice final salary scheme pensions or indeed those with nice pots being "conservative" in their thinking but the percentage of over 65s who rely on a state pension I'm guessing a fair whack vote Tory.

Fear of Change, misunderstanding that the Tory party will protect their pension income, beaten down by years of trying to get change in society and not getting it
