When did the Conservative party become progressives? Watch

    I completely agree. I have been wondering for many years now when the time will come when Conservatives will wake up and realise that their part is more like the Second Bolshevik Revolution part than Conservatives.

    The Conservative party are not conservatives. They are nutter liberals who believe that race and gender are social constructs, that to say otherwise is hate speech, that there is no equivalence between the far-left and the far-right and generally criminalising “hate speech” and combating oppression by outing people who do prejudicial speech on the BBC.

    Amazing, I had no idea about Serbia. That's really incredible progress they've made.
    Meh, it's a bit of a mix. Outside of Belgrade and Novi Sad, attitudes aren't that LGBT-friendly (though, to be fair, those two cities do make up about a quarter of Serbia's population). In the rest of the country, attitudes are a lot more conservative.

    But the problem isn't really the crusty old prudish conservatives - they'll tut and and give funny looks if they see a gay couple holding hands, but other than that they won't do much. The more serious problem is a hangover from the Yugoslav wars - a small but very vocal minority of far-right thugs who do pose quite a serious danger. They're scattered all over the country, even in Belgrade. Most Belgraders really despise them (they're the embodiment of everything progressive Serbians are ashamed of about the 1990s), but they do need to be watched out for.

    That said, Belgrade's an absolutely amazing city for parties and nightlife, and from what I've gathered from when I've been there the gay bar and club scene is far from an exception to that.

    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.
    Not sure there’s much debate to be had with someone who thinks that the Conservatives are “pro human battery farms”.

    Also The Matrix is an American film, in the US the colours of the political parties is reversed so if you want to attribute the colour to the party red would represent the right wing

    The main problem is that Theresa May tries too hard not to associate with any far-right policies to the extent that any extreme liberal standards are now seen as the norm, partially due to the fact that the public are a lot more tolerant of a far-left government like that in Germany under Merkel than the AfD, for example. However, the conservatives are also the ones who wanted to bring back fox-hunting, grammar schools and economic policies such as the bedroom tax which take us back to the 50s, suggesting that it might be just a case of May unsurprisingly trying to please as many people as possible.

    Reducing gender to a bureaucratic form-filling exercise. How progressive.

    Now everyone just has to be nice and play along to maintain the illusion that a man can become a woman or vice versa by simply thinking their way into the opposite gender.

    And if you don't play along, ie you refuse to participate in this ridiculous charade and "misgender" someone thus shattering the illusion, then you'll be accused of committing a "hate crime".

    This is what happens when madness becomes normalised.

    The Conservatives are a bloody joke. There's nothing conservative about them.

    What is this 'Drag Queen Storytime'? Is this for real?
    Of course it is real. And just exactly what is wrong with it? My 4 year old son decided to dress up as a princess at after school club the other day. Would you say there was something wrong with that too?

    When the Conservatives pledge to pay me in line with inflation, maybe. Maybe.

    Public sector.
    Well if you're not happy with your current pay there's always the private sector. If there's not a private sector alternative then you should encourage the Conservatives to be more conservative.

      The Tories are the party for neo-liberalism.

      I have no idea why people still vote for them.

      The Conservative Party stopped being conservative when Enoch Powell got booted out for making his Rivers of Blood speech. In reality he got booted out because of his staunch opposition of Britain joining the EU. Ever since then it has progressively slid towards being a socially liberal party. Thatcher is often proclaimed to be a patriot on the flimsy basis of winning the Falklands war but in reality many of the seeds of social liberalism and multiculturalism were planted during her tenure as PM and the flowers did not bloom until Blair was PM. Powell was proven right in the 1980s with the race riots in Brixton and Toxteth, later Tottenham, but the Conservative government did not follow his advice but instead that of Scarman.

      In which case you are advocating our schools being sold off to privateers. No, we could just take the bung given to NI for propping up the PM and instead allow public sector workers to be paid properly. You know, for providing essential services to the public.

      The British public are a lost cause. Britain deserves all the societal problems it has because people keep voting for such outcomes.

      We all have a vested interest in state education. If you don't want it properly funded then you must accept the long term consequences.

      You have a vested interest in the salary of teachers meaning you’re hardly likely to have a reasonable estimation of what teachers should be paid. You know the salary before you start, if you aren’t happy with it you should have picked a different career

      Society and politics are pretty much a joke at this point, there needs to be a reformation of the conservatives or a new party.

      The big question is whether the English are prepared to vote for a political party other than Lib-Lab-Con in sufficient numbers to elect enough MPs to change the political landscape. In Scotland the SNP has gone mainstream and Northern Ireland politics have changed since the 1980s, but although there have been a few attempts with some degree of success at challenging the political establishment in England none have broken through on a significant scale yet.
