A new euphemism enters British politics:- "Breaking Manifesto Promises" = "Making the Difficult Decisions".
I'm surprised that he has lasted as long as he has.Do you see Boris Johnson lasting long?
Looking back, Labour were bringing forward a Social Care Plan of some description under Gordon Brown. Labour were rejected in the 2010 GE. During the Tory/Liberal Coalition the Liberal Party were putting together another Plan/Overhaul of the Social Care system. This was ditched once the Tories won a working majority in 2015. Any "plan" disappeared from view until Boris announced late 2019 that he had a Plan "ready to go".......Obviously, if it was "ready to go" and that is the one we now have, the economic effects of Covid does not really come into it. But who knows?
You elect a man with a career long record (public life and private life) of lies and broken promises, then in effect you get what you voted for ( obviously, the UK FPTP electoral system even calls "getting what you voted for" into question - only 1 in 3 of people eligible to vote need vote for one Party for that Party to gain a "landslide")
Not as such. I see it more as a war of attrition. The average Tory heart is not in it. More and more Health Insurance will take over, the two tier system we as good as have already will encroach more and more. We will hardly notice it go.Do you think the Tories will ever sell off the NHS?
