IN over 6 years of the Tories what have they ever done for the working classes?

Latest figures say around 4 million working people are living in relative poverty.

That's just for starters....

I think the answer to the question posed is 'Fuck all'.

2010 ushered in the era when the Etonian upper class tories took charge. With the likes of  Cameron as PM (and Osbourne and Goldsmith as mp's  - and all 3 have gone).

Before that, the 3 previous  tory prime ministers were all working class, as far as I recall.

They brought in the national living wage. OK, so it's not actually a living wage, but the pay of many people over 25 did go up more than usual if they were previously on minimum wage.

         THERESA MAY pronounced to the international press a few weeks back that her Tory guvm'nt will attempt to hold its' current course, aiming for increased "free market" policies and maintaining their current disproven and failed "trickle down" ideology, while screwing over the workers and welfare recipients (especially the disabled, and the poor and destitute..), under the umbrella of corporatist_inspired faux "austerity" and "balanced budget" measures...

So, it doesn't look like you good peoples will get any relief from the same ol', same ol' Tory bludgeonings and ripoffs over the next two-and-a-half years, does it  ?
