    Ever since Tony Blair took Labour to the right to win votes, the Conservatives have moved to the left to win the same votes.

    Also, because the western societal consensus now is economically conservative, socially liberal.

      lol no it isn't.

      Anglophonic consensus maybe, but most European nations are the opposite (even Germany I wouldn't call socially liberal, especially when it comes to LGBT and gender equality).

      Cosmopolitan Germany is. And we know how London-centric the UK is, so that's why they're like that.

      And saying anything against it just makes you sound like a bigot...see below

      Ever since they sold their soul to the gay agenda to secure votes.

      This is why need someone like Mogg to challenge the immorality and indecency in our society.

        Cosmopolitan Germany, maybe... but not nearly as much as London.

        I'm not entirely sure what you are saying here.

        A woman has been in power in Germany for a decade tho. Luxembourg and Serbia both have gay PMs. The Spanish king approved same-sex marriage the first chance he got.

        And then there's the Nordic countries.

        Also, "the western world" is technically from west of London on.

        Peel was utterly destroyed as a Tory Prime Minister by the Repeal of the Corn Laws. Quite cynically, by Disraeli.

        To claim that this indicates that the Conservative Party were "born progressive" is a stretch.

        Amazing, I had no idea about Serbia. That's really incredible progress they've made.

        The Spanish king approved same-sex marriage the first chance he got.
        It's not really for the Spanish king to decline such legislation; Spain is, like the UK, a constitutional monarchy.

        However, it's true to say that even traditional, Catholic Spain legalised gay marriage very early on (wasn't it back around 2004 or something?)

        I would agree with the TSRian above on Germany; that country really is very conservative outside of Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig etc. The progressive worship of Germany (mainly because it is identified in their minds with the EU) is utterly misconceived and slightly pathetic

        The blue pill is the one you take to stay in delusion.... Seems fitting as it is the only reason to vote Tory.

        It's more of a stupid none thinking liberal (dare I sat centrist) thing to fawn over the christian democrat party.

        Germany does have a more sensible common sense none suicidal centre right though. Like is actually engages in economics that isn't totally idiotic and has a more grown up attitude to green energy.

        and then came the leader after Disraeli and they reverted to being the party of the rich.

        The red pill will lift the wool from your eyes and let you see the system you live in for what it really is. It's analogousness to class consciousness in left wing politics :rofl:

        Conservatism is literally things are fine as they and the current lot what to carry on as normal. They are the big bad robots enslaving humanity. They are pro human battery farms. Pro Matrix.

        Red and blue are fitting colours.... Vote Tory if you want The Matrix. Vote Labour if you want Star Trek.
