The centre of this country

Many words floating about – Tory, Labour, socialist etc.

I’ve just got off the blower from one of my suppliers who has a delivery on its way now. He and I got down to politics. He calls himself working class but liked many things Maggie did. He’s dead agin this multicultural wave of non-assimilating people and don’t start on the EU. They killed off his business, along with the rip-off govt here [50% top rate?] etc.

He’s a small businessman but has worked as a joiner, builder etc. You might not see that as middle-England, perhaps you see it as lower than that but I don’t. From these people to the housewives [the ordinary kind] to the pub philosopher to the people who have always made up this land – this is the centre of the country.

Words like socialist and conservative [small letters] don’t mean a lot. They’re not all that party political, they just want to live their lives and for the govt to butt out of those lives.

My supplier is precisely the guy we should be catering for in the policies of this nation.

    The small business man can not up sticks and move his production to another continent like the big corporations. He is stuck, a serf, to be robbed and threatened with prison if he doesn’t cough up ever more of his labour for the parasites to lavish on the desires of their supporters.
    Until the fools who vote wake up and see the poison in the system nothing is going to change. Mr small business is going to be squeezed until he has nothing left.

    I saw the UK stats on small businesses and start-ups. The big money in the UK is big biz, of course but the heart of the land is the small businessman [and woman]. Per capita, they make the greatest contribution.

    Footnote – he has just travelled from Notts to nearly Cumbria, then across to me, then has to reverse that – today.

    For a sale.

    All power to the guy and if the materials are good, then he gets my further business.

      That just about nails it.
      Thanks for the link. I’ve not seen it before.

        The argument form in the video is reprehensible. To compare and contrast two despicable pursuits (Drugs:bent cops, prostitutes: politicians) hailing one lot as lovers of freedom and the others as oppressors, is an informal fallacy.

        In all instances we see a complete destruction of Human Spirit. Integrity is not found in any of the instances.

        So, the speaker does not like government and seeks freedom for all. You already have the freedom. It is the mendacious misuse of the word and conflating it with Licence that is the problem.

        Find a better argument.

    People will only go so far and tire thats the problem, a million people in Britain marched to protest against the Iraq invasion yet a million Iraqis so far have died, until a million people march to have Blair hung and his kids booted out of their mansions only until then can we say we are people not cattle to be prodded in any direction.
