    Well, it was inevitable that we would have an appeal to the ordinary working class for their vote and support. 

    Perhaps it is an astute manoeuvre. Let the Labour Party commit collective suicide with internecine civil war and present yourself and the tories as the "true" expression of the workers' views, especially after Brexit, anti-immigration and anti-refugee and anti-human rights populism.

    Ever since universal suffrage, parties have to appeal to the working class. It will be strictly business when it comes to 'difficult decisions' like imposing austerity.

    I caught a minute of the end of May's conference speech, a minute of my life, ruined for life.At first I could have sworn it was a different party from the one that's been imposing austerity on the people of Britain for the last few years. Then I heard the nauseating applause about protecting "our soldiers" from lefty human right's lawyers.Despite claiming to be the centre ground of British politics, her speech was designed to appeal to patriotic voters who want to feel as though they are being listened to.Does anyone think this is the end of the line for UKIP?

    I'm so priveleged to be in a position to be watching the BBC Daily Politics show, today. They were at the Tory conference and they were doing their balls in the box vote on a question stunt. The question was "Will we be richer or poorer because of Brexit?"Guess what the majority of Tories, who took the time to engage, went for? Apparently "we" are gonna be richer post Brexit. Of course there was no defining what the "we" meant, because I seriously doubt workers pay packets will see much of an increase if the Brexit goes ahead.

    Certainly for those of us living abroad and watched the pound exchange rate plummet won't be any richer

    But what about all those shares we workers have?
