It's a combination of the two, in all seriousness. Tories disdain both public sector workers ("if you were smart you'd get a real job in banking!") and poor people who can't go private ("if you weren't such a lazy prole you'd be able to afford the cancer drugs!").

You see exactly the same effect in state education, where both teachers and students are reviled by Tories. Because if you were a decent teacher you'd obviously be teaching at Eton, and if you were a decent student you'd obviously be studying at Eton, right?

What a bunch of gross deplorable monsters."


And that's just Denster.

Denster is a gross monster but it's not because he's a Tory. :dread: ( :wub: )

I was talking about him being lazy and deplorable, not him being a Tory. Although that works as well. ;)

What I'd like to know is what percentage of NHS workers vote Tory. Denny can't be the only one, it's a statistical improbability.

And yes we love you Denny.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I'm honestly amazed there aren't marches in London. People are actually dying in corridors and the government have been caught negligent and nobody really seems to give a damn.

Grenfell tower, NHS collapse......what a strawberry floating legacy.

Latest polls suggest that 40% would still vote Tory if there was an election today, just 1% behind Labour. It's madness!

Peter Bone is 'famous' for phrasing his questions in parliament as being from Mrs Bone, so... I dunno. extra brownie points for pointless hypocrisy?

so, "Mrs Bone doesn't understand why we can't just fire all EU immigrants out of a cannon" and then David Cameron would say "ohoho I'm so sorry to disappoint Mrs Bone, but my government believes in shooting them out of trebuchets", and then the whole of parliament would chortle and applaud and that was PMQs done for another week

An MP leaving his wife for another woman shouldn't really be front page news. Didn't he piss off May a bit at PMQs this week?

STATISTICS SHOW THAT DAILY MAIL WAS BY FAR THE MOST UNRELIABLE UK PAPER IN 2017

The Daily Mail transgressed the press regulator rules no fewer than 50 times in 2017, making it by far the biggest offender of the year out of the publications monitored by IPSO.

This was more than the combined total of the next three worst offenders
(Daily Express, The Sun and the Daily Telegraph) and far in excess of its 2016 total, when the paper also topped the charts.

Would never have guessed :shock:
