I agree. The UK is economically soft right and socially soft left.
Live your life how you want, just don’t expect me to pay to indulge your choices.
I also suspect that the majority of voters were, at least, uneasy about the political behaviours following the referendum.
Lab / Lib really misread the mood of the country and assumed that Twitter / protests / petitions represented the views of the population rather then the views of a vocal metropolitan minority.
They assumed “Boris grrr”, “Brexit grrr” and “Tories grrr” was all they needed to win. This meant they didn’t provide a realistic alternative.
Exactly. The British public will only accept political correction so far, but the true believers want to go all the way. When they reach the point of pushback, true believers resort to authoritarian measures, which increases the pushback.
This is exactly what happened to Osborne/Cameron with Project Fear and Margaret Thatcher with the poll tax.
