Class war update.

29 Nov

Class war, generation war, war against women, war between the regions: George Osborne’s autumn statement blatantly declares itself for the few against the many. Gloves are off and gauntlets down, and the nasty party bares its teeth. Here is the re-toxified Tory party, the final curtain on David Cameron’s electoral charade. No more crocodile tears for the poor, no more cant about social mobility or “the most family-friendly government” or “we’re all in this together”. Forget “vote blue go green”, with this mockery of husky-hugging. Let the planet fry

Read Polly Toynbee’s analysis of the autumn statement/class war currently being waged in UK politics.

Owen Jones (who I think I’m politically in love with?) tweeted “When people say Osborne’s plan “isn’t working” only true in terms of growth. But it is re-ordering society further along Thatcherite lines”.

Here’s his liberal whaaaaat face just in case you’ve forgotten.
