From a Tory point of view it is a massive success: “stagnant wages and productivity” & by extension poor pay are a success. These elements keep UK serfs (which is how Tories see most of the Uk population) in their fore-lock tugging place.

Tory economic/health/transport policy is a great success – if you are a Tory.Mr Simon claims that Tory policies are “extremely ruthless and cynical”. Only if you judge them from the perspective of somebody that would like all sections of UK society to do well. If on the other hand you are a congenital liar, a sociopath and possibly a psychopath (traits which all Tory politicians and voters have) then it is all quite normal. The Maybot cares not one whit about young people (oh she may speak words – they mean nothing – as already noted May is a congential liar – she is a Tory – QED.

As for education – why would you want an educated population? They might start to look beyond the sound bites, trash and trivia & start to question. Tories don’t want that – they prefer to deal with unthinking serfs. Hence the on-going demolition of what is laughably called education in the UK. UK serfs: increasingly thick, uninformed and manipulable.
