    Labour (under Corbyn - under Blair they were pro neoliberalism)
    Greens
    Plaid Cymru
    SNP

    Neoliberalism

    The Tories (they shouldn't be called the Conservatives because they're not conservative - ask any true small-c conservative on the matter)
    The Lib Dems - Want to further the status quo and supported such during the coalition
    UKIP - probably the most neoliberalism loving of the lot with a leader who adores Thatcher, even though she is the one that brought neoliberalism to the UK

    Why is neoliberalism bad?
    It is bad for the reasons that can be seen below. I cant be bothered typing them all out but Thatcher brought neoliberalism to the UK, it continued on in the UK right up and through the Blair years under Labour, and Cameron has continued it today with the Tories.

    What is strange is that a lot of Tories, Lib Dems, UKIP and Labour voters (Blairites) oppose a lot of these things yet continuously vote for parties that wish to continue on with it. America is also going through the same problems and has been since the days of Reagan. Since those days, 1 in 4 children is now in poverty in the USA which for a supposedly first world developing country is utterly disgusting.

    What is my political view?

    Well, some people on here think I'm a loony lefty socialist because I'm voting Corbyn. These people could not be more wrong. I'm a true free market capitalist that hates the current Tory party as they are anything but Conservative and I will be voting for Labour under Corbyn purely as an attack on the neoliberal policies that have led to the UK entering a moral decline to a point whereby people cannot get housing, rent is extremely high, business is monopolised, there is a lack of democracy with ever more powers being centralised, the movement towards a police state as recognised and warned by a top officer in the police force and the rise of poverty and social injustice.

    Much like UKIP voters thought they were voting out against the establishment, many people will now vote Labour in an attack on neoliberalism.

    True free-markets

    In a true free-market there'd be rules to ensure the market was fair and remained free, as opposed to being monopolised by those with all the wealth leading to wealth inequality increasing which has a profound impact upon our lives socially. There'd be lower taxation but because of the fairness in the market more people would be better off and have a chance of getting their foot on the ladder.

    He stresses that ‘getting markets to work like markets’ is the core message of his book. The problem ‘isn’t that we’ve been slaves to free markets, but that we’ve usurped them… Too-big-to-fail banks that extort government bailouts and big monopoly corporations that use their power to restrict competition are anathema to the free-market model — and are a lot of the reason inequality has risen so fast.’
    Here is an article on it from the Guardian. Contrary to popular belief, many Guardian writers are not loony lefties but they are in fact anti-neoliberal's who wish for a return to a fairer politics that works for all, not just for the political and corporate elites.

    In 2015 I refused to vote. Labour under Miliband, just as they were under Blair, were disgusting supporters of neoliberalism so they weren't worth voting for either. Now, under Corbyn, an anti-neoliberal, the party has a chance of pushing this agenda for a new progressive politics and one that serves more, and not a few.

    My only hope now is that the Tory party breaks up or returns to true conservatism so that we can have a true anti-neoliberal capitalist option that wants a true free-market and wants to reward the SME's that are the backbone of this economy, rather than punish them and the working class and subsidising the rich at their expense.

    You can either continue going on voting like sheep for more of the same neoliberal policies that have left people worse off than they should be at this point, or you can vote for change and push for a political revolution.

    Either way, if the neoliberal parties stay in power and continue the current trend, the country is only going to get worse as it is unsustainable to continue pushing people down and down and in the end violence will erupt on the streets, much like it did during the London 'riots' - less to do with Mark Duggan, and more to do with people taking the opportunity to act out against the disgusting government for not listening - and it will cause massive problems including civil unrest.

    Vote AGAINST neoliberalism.
