It comes to something if they cannot even get the basics right i.e thousands of families homeless or threatened with homelessness. I've said it before but in my opinion the first and most serious duty of any government is to the worst off and most vulnerable. Trident, nuclear power? I'd have no qualms about directing resources towards the things that really matter were it up to me. For all their feigned hard headed militarism and blustering most of them are in fact moral cowards. Unwilling to take on worthy causes because it does not profit them, or go down the easy path.

Even then they dither e.g the dilatoriness in resolving the problems in Afghanistan, buck-passing and cowardice.

Now to me a fair minded rational approach would be, 'these people have it very comfortable, the onus is upon them to demonstrate effort and passion to show that they aren't complacent but are indeed men and women of their word beyond election time'. I don't say this lightly but I strongly believe that the extent of their ambition is to have a career and ultimately to feather their own nests.

I'd go as far as to say they are useless caricatures. Excessively rich nonentities. A worthwhile socialist would be after them, taking what they have gathered at our expense and rubbishing the standard 'the left are jealous of the wealthy' narrative for what it is: the pathetic propaganda efforts of a dying class. They haven't got a leg to stand on. They will submit and lie down if you push them. We are talking the will and power of towns and cities against a few private schools, 'gentlemen's clubs' and media institutions that can be subdued and brought into the light through reasonable argument. Trusting THEM is a joke.
