The Government: They Do Not Care
The Conservative Party was founded in 1834. It has generally adopted liberal economic policies favouring free-market economics including measures such as deregulation, privatisation, and marketisation, especially so since the 1980s. Its guiding principles include the promotion of private property and enterprise, the maintenance of a strong military, the preservation of traditional cultural values and institutions and especially the rule of law.
Today, the Tories are a completely different animal when compared to the party just five years ago, let alone across the generations. It is now more of a hybrid political party, heading towards a political system that is starting to show the characteristics of authoritarianism where much of its rhetoric relies on deception, fear and the promise of economic prosperity.
One thing is for sure, at the heart of the current government is a prime minister who simply does not care about anything other than himself.
We should not forget that heading straight for us in the UK we have increased taxes, an energy crisis, a prolonged inflationary spike – all of which is expected to push millions towards the brink of poverty.

The list goes on and on – abandonment of his own family, accused of colluding to beat up a journalist, breaking the rules on financial interests, accusations of breaching the ministerial code, blowing public money on farcical projects that fail, the Russia Report whitewash, Owen Paterson – and so on.
This is a snapshot of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Boris Johnson was put into No10 Downing Street by the Conservative Party. Irrespective of anything he might have achieved, he has trashed democracy, created a government machine more corrupt than anything in living memory, has destabilised our union of four nations, divided society and is immersed in chaos, scandal, lies, deceit – and what looks like an establishment ‘stitch-up’ involving the Metropolitan Police. The result of all this is that trust in the institutions that uphold the country is being rapidly dismantled before our eyes.
The true disgrace is that Boris Johnson still remains in his job.
As already mentioned, heading towards us all in this country is an inflation spike, an energy crisis and an NHS crisis where 13 million people are expected to be on waiting lists by the next election. Poverty will sharply increase, especially child poverty. Brexit is not done, the economy has been damaged by it to the tune of £12 billion a month, the Northern Ireland protocol is yet to be settled. On top of this, as household finances face plunging disposable income – a recession is inevitably on its way.
What Great Britain needs right now is a leader able to concentrate on the job. And it may have left the minds of Boris Johnson, the government and the Tory party more widely what their job actually is – to make the lives of all citizens better off by political and economic policy. This is something they have categorically failed at and at some point, someone is going to have to clear up this chaotic mess.
