The bullingdon club otherwise known as the conservative party are one of privelege and only for toffs. Although a better alternative to UKIP I still dislike them immensly because of there hatred of the poor and how they make the poor suffer. Labour should have won in 2015 I know it mr cameron knows it the whole country knows it. Why do people vote for the torys I don't understand. I will ALWAYS vote labour no matter what as they're what is best for everyone in the country and are a party of the people

You can't complain, there was a democratic vote and the people have spoken.

Because people have different political views? Because people believe that the size and reach of the state should be reduced, with less regulation?

If they only represent privilege then there's an awful lot of privileged people in the uk. Enough to vote in a majority government.

So to answer your question, people who voted Tory were led into a trap of cheap rhetoric and sophistry and voted for persuasion, not adept politics.

So you're suggesting we didn't need to cut back on spending and should have kept a £140 billion budget deficit? Fool.

I voted Conservative as I trust them to run the economy better than the other parties, they want to take less of my money away than the other parties, and they provide more opportunities than the other parties. Although I can only speak for myself, there's one set of reasons why someone would vote Conservative.

Are you a troll? Because you're coming across an idiot. Putting aside the fact that you can barely speak English, the idea that Tories only care about the rich is cliched and untrue. Increasing the tax-free personal allowance for example, primarily benefits low earners.

Always voting Labour regardless of their policies is stupid. Labour stopped being the party of the workers when Tony Blair became leader. Why did the Tory party win? Maybe because people preferred their policies and their local candidate rather than voting according to some antiquated cliche.

Back in the day, yes Labour was a party of the working people, but now they are more interested in helping people who don't work and won't work, people claiming benefits. The Labour party is more interesting in taxing the hell out of the top 10% of earners and giving it to people on the dole, which means the state is paying for them to have children, 60 inch TVs etc...this is my view.

Based on their previous stint in government and the recent election, they're mainly interested in creating welfare dependency (and thus manufacturing people who will always vote for the party which is promising the best deal for benefits claimants, which is typically not the Tories).

Makes political sense as every party's main goal is creating more voters for itself so it can be re-elected, but I can't help but feel that there are better ways to do it, and I'm surprised those being driven into benefit dependency are happy with it.

I consider myself left-wing, extremely so actually, but the self-importance of many Labour voters and their blinkered refusal to see that the majority of Britons view the Tories as a credible alternative is holding them back.

100% agree with you! I can't see how benefits dependency is sustainable

No.

Because they are more trustworthy on the economy, they want to cut taxes and return to sustainable spending.

People like you should be banned from voting.

(Original post by intelligent con)
as they're what is best for everyone in the country
Except for everyone earning 25k and up, which is just over 30% of the UK.

(Original post by intelligent con)
and are a party of the people
Party of welfare claimants.

I'm sorry but people like this piss me off.

Just because you yourself don't like tory,doesn't mean others don't. Doesn't mean you should try to belittle people for what they believe
