    everyone does keep half their income and not one of the big three parties has plans to change that so doesnt seem a significant reason for choosing Tory. You have to go back 40 years for one of parties to have proposed or implimented a tax rate that took more than half anyones pay. However if you lived through that I can see it would have stayed with you.

    The rest of your points I can see, except that the rhetoric and actions of the Tory party in power over my lifetime indicates that the underlying ethos of the Tories is selfishness. Therefore I find it hard to empathise with people who want to achieve those (in most cases) very reasonable aims by voting Tory and therefore their selfishness, without coming to the conclusion that they are also to some degree selfish.

    as for your last point we as a nation are spending more on health and education, but not when you factor in the inflation i healthcare (higher than general inflation) and the number of people who need healthcare and education. You may argue that we as a nation cant afford it because we shouldnt be taxed more to fund it. I would say thats selfish and we really should.

    Sorry SWP, I forgot protocol dictates this, I hang my head in shame and pledge to use the apt descriptive 'C***s' in future.

    I already have fella
    I will leave the C bomb in my head
    but not the selfish.

    personally I would find being called a c word less offensive than being called selfish

    I dont know how to reply to that without typing a hundred pages of text.
    However I will say that Labour has to take some of the blame for the current mess, although your analysis is so far off the mark.
