This is something the Nazi party were interested in. Thinking that you can create a human race that is compliant to the desire of the people in authority. It’s the main ethos of the right.
Toby Young was appointed by a government that couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery. I heard a Tory defend the government appointing him saying who has got the time to do due diligence on 45,000 tweets. You wouldn’t need to read more than 50 to know he’s a completely disgusting individual. His views on disability, women’s rights and other political issues are archaic and even most tories wouldn’t say that even if they believed it.
Oh my god, shut up!
I never thought I’d say it but: Thank you, Vince Cable.
I know I generally favour Labour over the Tories (hell I’d favour a stiff kick to the crotch over the Tories) but this is the kind of thing that makes me way more hesitant in doing so than most anyone else I know who supports Labour.
It just kind of baffles me when it seems that a majority of young voters drastically oppose Brexit and want to stay in the EU including the single market, and a majority of young voters support Labour under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, but yet he keeps doing things like this.
And yet somehow they are unwavering in their support despite him seemingly going along with the Tories’ line about how Brexit needs to happen and needs to be the hard version of it.
I dunno. Maybe this is the Brexit-hating Lib Dem part of my political identity breaking through more than usual but still.
