It absolutely won't happen, but at least the fantasy is entertaining.
I was reading about accelerationists and I really think that the Tories seem to pushing that line of thinking. There seems to be a massive ground swell in support of very left political because the younger generation has it so bad at the moment, but the Tories seem to be implementing policy to make young peoples lives worse. It's the same when you look at green policy the Tories are doing nothing to really improve the environment and it's likely they will start to roll back environmental protections. Continuing this style of politics seems bound to lead to a massive backlash when the older voters inevitably die off. It seems like the Tories actually being secret commies wanting to speed on the end of capitalism is the best fit for what they Tories are doing, although I'm guessing it's actually a combination of short termisim, laziness and stupidity.
