Policies that help many, are popular with many, but disliked by a few!
@MatherWallace @bernardsmernard When the few with invested interests feel threatened because of change or scrutiny they can only smear! it is difficult for them to debate and criticise popular ideas and policies. So what do the few with money and influence do?

Traditionally Tories have made themselves out to be a party of plumbers, brewers and publicans
A serious party of fun loving pirates and hard working blokeys.
But in reality, they're a party of death squads, bomb makers and dope runners
A party of godfathers, masons and pimps
Traditionally Tories have portrayed themselves as a party of bankers, solicitors and grocers
-a serious party of fun loving swingers and hard grafting drunks
-In reality, they're a party of tax evaders, human rights abusers and polluters
- A party of cheats, exploiters and filth
Tories have engineered a situation in Britain where people don't have the right to buy food, and they don't have the right to take shelter.
Sanctions, foodbanks anti-begging laws and anti-squatting laws have been used to deny people basic human rights.
Now we starve and freeze

I agree with the sentiment but I cannot emphasise enough that #homelessness, #foodbanks, #ChildPoverty, #HostileEnvironment all existed before #brexit. They are not a consequence of #brexit but #Conservatives policy. It doesn't have to be this way, it's a political choice ->
Before someone from #FBPE jumps in and says "that's because focus has been on brexit" ... not it isn't. This is #Conservative policy. The privatisation of #NHS, the changes in #Education, reductions in #LegalAid ... where has the #EU been in stopping all this? It hasn't.
There has been a constant drive to reform society from health to education, none of which is about addressing the issues of inequality.
