the difference between both mayor parties in the UK according to you?
You really want to know? The conservatives are just that - spreading the lie that they must conserve capital for the next generation, which means their voting base, the propertied classes, whilst trying to cut every non- essential service they can, or at least to outsource it - which is why we have regular scandals such as Northamptonshire county council being unable to set a budget (technically bankrupt) and the latest news - the body-parts scandal, where a hospital outsourced the disposal of human body parts, with the result that there was no disposal...They are also the party that babbles on about the evils of scroungers aka foreigners, and how sovereignty must never be relinquished, even though we kept the pound, our language, our sausage, and our queenie. Load of bollocks, and Brexit is clearly driven by this Tory inspired xenophobia. A lot of the uneducated working class vote Tory, just as the same group in Poland vote for PIS, mistaking platitudes as a short term fix, instead of actually wanting to fix the root causes - which are lack of inner city investment and high business taxes. Probably the cities are finished anyway as for commerce and shopping and the Tories have washed their hands of responsibility.
Labour introduced a working wage of 210 pounds a week for a working couple with two kids - meaning that below that threshold zero tax was payable. That enraged the Tories. Basically the conservatives are typically a party of austerity, and try their utmost to make damn sure that none of the wealth dribbles down through the lower middle classes. Of course they have dangled the carrot of home ownership in the past as obtainable for all - but that was purely to abdicate any social responsibility, and a large percentage of poorer home buyers lost their homes in the repossessions of the early 90s.
The unemployment rate is at the lowest since the 1970s simply because the Tories have massaged the figures, by removing the right of millions to claim unemployment benefit per se.Ted Heath was seen as good egg (nobody knew he was an alleged kiddy fiddler) but the rest of the Tory gang should have taken the slow boat to China.
Labour are more radical, a bit like your eccentric college professor, ready to experiment to try to spend to sow the seeds of growth - definitely not handing out 500 zl childcare, or taking away the incentive to work - as PIS have done, quite the opposite in fact. Maybe higher tax thresholds aren't a vote winner in Poland, because people would actually have to declare their earnings to qualify for tax credits. Ask any large employer you like in Tri-City about the damage PIS has done and they will be happy to offer a long list.
