    No, you started insulting me for correctly stating that the force called gravity doesn't exist. Have you looked up general relativity, yet? It's very interesting.

    Some, sure. We're evaluating things at the aggregate level though. Relative poverty is not real poverty and i say that as somebody who grew up in an unemployed household. Your only real point there is rough sleeping. Certainly we are far from the 93-03 goal though right now.

    That's an entirely spurious and subjective statement relying on me accepting your definition of 'forward thinking'.

    Sure and that's an issue for equality of opportunity (inheritance in the main) but it does not detract from the overall point which is that your initial assertion that Conservatives can never make society better relies heavily on the acceptance of your own subjective definitions.
    I'm not one of those who disregards the importance of relative poverty as a measure. And besides, if you look at the stats there is negligible difference. In the UK, in recent years, the terms are virtually interchangeable (assuming you mean UK absolute poverty rather than international).

    I said 'struggle to' not 'never'. And furthermore, improvements in the economy leading to incremental increases in living standards (which should over time under any government) is not an endorsement of conservative ideology.

    First of all you insulted me first and you know you did. For no reason you said "ignorant ****" and it made you seem very foolish.

    Now to make you look even more foolish:

    "Gravity doesn't exist, look up General Relativity"

    Do you still think what you said was correct?

    I called you an idiot for that statement (after you idiotically called me ignorant) because it shows you know nothing about general relativity. You must have thought that by using a scientific word it would make you sound smarter. Now you will learn never to do that again.

    Any idiot can say "I watched Interstellar, omg there's no such thing as gravity because... general relativity".

    Of course gravity exists. Do we have a theory of everything that completely and axiomatically describes it yet? No. That's why we are searching for gravitational waves etc. to understand the nature of the universe, of which gravity is a fundamental part.

    Not only do you not know anything other than an idiot-level knowledge about general relativity, you also don't know what the word "exists" means.

    GRAVITY EXISTS. Try this wherever you are: hold something, anything and throw it up. Does it come down?

    The answer is yes. Always. This is gravity. If you didn't know this was called gravity and thought gravity was something else then you are an idiot. Why are you an idiot? Because everyone, EVERYONE knows this. Except you. You being an idiot is the only excuse you can have for saying something so phenomenally stupid. I congratulated you on your idiocy and I will do so again. Well done.

    "Have you looked up general relativity, yet?"

    I have a physics degree you idiot. You don't.

    How foolish you must feel for telling me to look it up a second time thinking you know better than me. Again, why did you think you know better than me without having any idea about who I am or what you are even talking about? Because you are an idiot.

    I usually wouldn't upset someone like this but the fact that you were so stupid to assume that I would be taken for a fool when you are the fool means that you need to be told. You can learn to change but even if you won't due to the fact you are an idiot, at least you will know never to take this risk again.

    Genuine conservatism is dead in the UK. I usually tell people I am a traditionalist, to avoid being affiliated with the Tory party.

    The government may not be, but the party as a whole still has a few conservative members. Then there's people yourself and I, so I wouldn't say that conservatism is dead, though it could be fair to say that it's dying.

    True, there are still some high profile conservatives (Hannan, Rees-Mogg) but they have little to no influence over the party. Until the Tories have been replaced conservatism is effectively dead in the UK, unfortunately. Individuals like ourselves are far too few in number.
