Lol you vote for Tory on welfare.(Original post by Rakas21)
As heartless as it sounds, I'm able to disagree with them on welfare and still comfortably support them. It just isn't enough of a priority for me.
Miliband was an option and I respected him. Corbyn is an extremist and I'll never vote for him.
Conservatives with labour parents? watch

I was right-wing until I experienced a true conservative government. My parents are Neo-Liberals at best.
I guess majority of people here are Tories because they have some form of privilege to protect from the grubby hands of the masses.
I use to be a wannabe middle class fool. What a lot of you don't realize is private school educated people have huge trust funds to fall back on. Majority of you don't. The wealthy in our country are not workers. They are privileged at birth with no need to ever get a real job.
Jeremy Corbyn is the least of your worries. Soon as the FTSE slides down another 20% there will be no welfare left to cut without revolution. This leaves tax rises as the only alternative and there are a lot of fat cattle for the slaughter house.
But the wealthy won't pay this. They know how to cheat on their taxes. Guess who pays? The wannabe middle class fools pay the toll.

Seems more like stupidity when you are a food bank recipient... You are being heartless against yourself.
Oh well I'm sure you deserve it what with natural economic justice and all
It's like self loathing of your own standing in society which seems kind of sad.
I'm employed and aspirational. Loathing would be far too strong a term, i just don't intend to die poor.

I doubt you will find many students who are Conservative.
The Conservatives have bought about the biggest redistribution of money since time began.
Taking it away from the YOUNG (student fees) and giving to the OLD (house prices bubble).
You can have Conservative values if you are young, but I don't think it would be wise to vote
conservative. It would be like voting to cut your own throat.

I'd consider it a failure of my parenthood if my child grew up to become a Tory

I was born into a very socialist household (probably because my parents were immigrants). But I started researching politics, and found I associated myself with typically right-wing ideals: less government intervention, free markets, capitalism, etc...
