Another Angry Voice on the Tories’ Rebranding as ‘The Workers’ Party’

Tory Workers Party Rebrand Propaganda

The Angry Yorkshireman has another excellent post on The bizarre Tory effort to rebrand themselves as “The Workers Party” . Apparently, Grant Shapps AKA Michael Green, the unconvicted fraudster now running the Conservatives, has dreamt up this attempt to appeal to what’s left of the British working class. The Irate One asks rhetorically if there is anyone stupid enough to believe this before going on to demolish the Tory pretence at representing the workers, from the way their party is funded, to wage restraint, the attempt to rename and abolish May Day as International Labour Day, and workers’ rights. The article begins

The Tories, and their braying supporters in the corporate controlled press have constantly attacked the Labour party over the fact that their party is mainly funded by small donations from hundreds of thousands of ordinary workers, via democratically organised institutions (the trade unions). Meanwhile the Tory party is funded by a rogues gallery of extremely dodgy rich people, without the faintest trace of democratic accountability.

How on earth could anyone be stupid enough to expect a political party that is majority funded by donations of over £50,000 a shot from the super-rich, to represent the interests of ordinary workers?

How on earth could anyone be stupid enough to expect a political party that has a secretive inner cabal of super-rich donors that it refers to as “The Leaders Group”, to represent the interests of ordinary workers?

How on earth could anyone be stupid enough to expect a political party that allows their wealthy donors to write up their own wish-list of anti-worker legislation as official Tory party policy, to represent the interests of ordinary workers.

The Angry Northerner then considers Shapps’ own career as an internet pioneer devising a computer programme that plagiarised content from other sites on the net, before concluding that this is, once again, another Tory propaganda attempt based on treating the British people, and particularly the working class, as stupid and gullible.

Unfortunately, I have a horrible feeling that some people will believe them.
