what a time to be alive.
what we have is a bunch of conservatives pandering to their remaining populist base, who want to hear all the right noises about immigrants, about 'wokeness', and about taxation.So far we have 'truth' and 'honesty'.
literally 4 ex-cabinet ministers who all voted to support a huge hike in taxes, following the pandemic, are now campaigning on ... huge tax cuts. a complete u-turn with no semblance of economic sense or reason in it. it's real grow-on-trees stuff. and as for the culture wars ... so far more candidates have mentioned trans rights and 'wokeness' than they have spoken about brexit, the cost-of-living crisis, or the recovery from covid (i.e. huge NHS backlogs and queues).
a high proportion of them have provable links to/ownership of businesses filed in tax havens. a lot of them are dirtied with non-dom status or relatives with the same. one of them has only agreed to be open about his tax dealings 'after' he gets elected. you cannot make this shit up.
