Labour Vs Tories on permitted corporate graft

Recommended Posts

It's the economy, and it's housing, so on topic in my book.

 

Labour:

Sold the country's gold reserves at knock down price. I reckon some private corporate entities probably did rather well out of that.

Bailed out the private wealth of amoral incompetent top bankers.

Rover group.

 

Tories:

Carillion

The builders raking in off HTB with obscene CEO bonuses etc

Far too much is made of that.  It was a clueless move, but it only lost about £2bn compared to selling the gold 10 years or so later.  That's less than a single WEEK of NHS running costs.

Gordon Brown did far more harm in the areas of housing, pensions and banking.

Virtually no ideological difference between new labour and cameron style conservatives. Both part of the same managerial, technochratic class with the same personal vested interests. 

Excellent point.

 

Virginia East coast too, I forgot, Tory.

+1,000

The current form of the Tories are outdated, and in massive need of change. But they have too many vested interests to allow that change to happen, thus they are literally just holding on for as long as they can, when change is not an option delaying failure for as long as possible is the best you can do.

The next version of the tories will be much more brutal, right wing, but also mix in some 'fairness policies'.
They will be forced to sort the housing crisis out and attack the boomers head on, or they wont be in power for 10 years.
