Rightwing Tories would never let May adopt Labour policies | The big issue

Vested interests will always prevent the party championing fairness I enjoyed Will Tanner’s recommendations for the Tory party to avoid “Jeremy Corbyn’s back to the future socialism [which] would be ruinous for Britain” ( “To win again, the Tories must become radical champions of fairness” , Comment). The former deputy head of the Downing Street policy unit lists a string of proposals for Theresa May’s government: spend more on the NHS; regulate markets more effectively; build a larger, stronger, more interventionist state; control the rapacious privatised utilities; make universities more socially engaged; devolve whole areas of central government; ease public sector pay restraint; spend less on defence and more on transport and research and development; go for a softer Brexit. 13-08-17

What will happen now between Scotland and England ? Probably nothing will happen. It is very clear that the Tories are not welcome in scotland but on the news this morning the SNP candidate was slyly saying that they would probably work with the tories - just what the country needs, NOT!! Tories are crooks & criminals! yes, labour has had a lot of problems, as has britain but this is not the governments fault, its a worldwide problem that has affect britain as well as most places worldwide, the poor labour government has just got the blame for it. Unless you are a millionarie or an english public school pupil/ex pupil you are likely to be stuffed by the tories. Scotland will just have to put up with what the torries want, and that will just make us all change our vote next time. David cameron is a sneaky, underhanded t***t who has said what he wants others to hear all along. If any one had read through each of the parties policies like we did then they would realise that a tory government wont help britain, it will hinder and destroy it.
A UK Supreme Court ruling that Parliament must trigger Brexit could see a General Election.Would remain MPs be at risk of losing their seats? Very much so, because we could end up in the nightmare situation of the two main parties being estranged from many of their own MPs thereby opening the door to UKIP, not that UKIP could come anywhere near to winning a general election, but they could win enough seats and sway enought voters Labour voters to hold the balance of power and if that happens the Tories win again. If Labour doesn't get its act together real soon we could see the Tories (one way or another) being in power for at least another 10 years if not longer. Remember UKIP wants out that's all they want, so whatever happens between the Tories, Labour and this Supreme court ruling UKIP are blameless, they can't loose.
Which country is more conservative England or Scotland? england, the tories never go down well north of the border since the scots think they are the party of the rich and an english party. Thatcher saw to that and we really hated her. There was a local election recently in glasgow and labour won and this at an all time low in the poles for labour with all the banks and expenses problems. The scots choose labour over the tories and will probably do so again when they should side with their hearts and vote independence.

Do you think that Britain will see a Labour government in your lifetime? It is quite possible that Labour may win the next election in spite of their policies of spending money as though it has gone out of fashion.. due to the fact that they are in the pockets of the trade unions. Unfortunately due to the electoral system the vote may be split between, Tories, UKIP, Lib dems & Uncle Tom Cobley and all ,,which may give Labour a majority, it will then be back to square one in respect of the economic situation and all the hard graft will have been for nothing.
Why does Scotland vote Labour so much? Because the Scotish are the least rich out of all of Britain. Down south where Tories win, they're usualy on good pay. Labour look after the Poor Tories look after the Rich. Even SNP will back Labour if they need the seats for a coalition.
