The richer you become, the more likely you are to vote for a right wing party. Watch


    if you are rich you are more likely to be a sociopath see e.g

    Labour didn't cause the economic crisis, it was caused by banks

    the deficit increased under the tories

    Most benefit spending is actually on pensions but the tories fiddle the figures to hide that

    Young people need to learn not to accept what politicians say at face value and to be wary of a right wing press and the propoganda it produces.

    I worked hard for my money, I am not young, i'm proud to pay taxes - but I'm not a sociopath.

    I wrote a thread detailing my views and political angles.

    I can't follow the traditional right/left political axis. I'm economically 'Europe meets Commonwealth' (libertarian with socialist elements), but I'm culturally more liberal than Europe.

    It's not always to do with people being rich. The vast majority of Tory voters aren't millionaires.

    I think it's more like, the harder you work, the more likely you are to vote Conservative.
