The central tenet of the Conservative campaign seems to be a beauty contest of personalities with Jeremy Corbyn as chief ogre.
The only Tory plan is austerity, which is largely uncosted. Otherwise there is hardly any plan – and certainly none for Brexit.
Unfortunately the beauty contest has been interrupted by bombings and murders.
Yet, still Police cuts are to stand. Terrorism will be solved with (costless) new legislation. There will be no additional investment in the health service or education. And, although there are less of them than before, 15% more of us are dying in fires – yet the fire service will be cut.
Any personal care at home that was free will now have to be paid for and houses will be commandeered by insurance companies for dementia patients.
And meanwhile, under Conservative economic management and unlike almost everywhere else, we have had an average wage reduction:
What an alluring litany of love and hope.
Who on earth wants any of this?
A Conservative vote can only be a vote for self-flagellation.
If by some mischance the Conservatives win, it must surely be proof of rampant Stockholm Syndrome among the electorate, brought about, presumably, by an uncritical and right wing media.
No sane individual could possibly consider the Conservative plans worthy of their support, could they?
But of course it is scandalous that Jeremy Corbyn speaks to crowds and doesn’t always wear a tie.
