Voting Tory

Mr McCulloch's heart is clearly in the right place but he wonders why people don't vote for the Conservatives:
One can only draw the simple conclusion that voters are actually content to pay more tax for less service, to integrate into Europe, to support burgeoning bureaucracy, to pay for someone else’s index-linked, inflation-proof pension.
Rather a lot of the voters do enjoy those wonderful pensions and I know that some Tories are afraid of upsetting them. The majority would indeed benefit form the policies enumerated by Mr McCulloch. They don't vote for the Conservatives because no one believes for a moment that the party would actually implement any of Mr McCulloch's excellent suggestions.

Stuart, war is certainly expensive, but not half as expensive as some of the things our masters waste our money on. Specifically, I think the defence budget is about a fifth of the cost of the Welfare State. 
And that's just the monetary cost of the Welfare State, nobody can cost how much harm it does to its clients...

-"We are in a war in Iraq where we cannot even properly equip our soldiers." 
Alastair McCulloch has identified one of the Tories key problems. 
They want to invade and occupy third world countries, but they pretend that they can be an imperial power without increasing taxes. 
Come on! War is one of the most expensive tactics any government can resort to. The Conservatives naturally tend to increase taxes because they have a natural blood-lust.
