Definitely emphasises how much the Tories control the narrative
All of these failings came under Tory rule but the buck just gets passed to people who haven't been in charge for over a decade
I think it also shows the lack of political education in this country - I don't mean that in a condescending "all these voters are dumb" way, but we are never taught how our government actually functions, from parliament down to local councils - and unless you go off and do your own research (which most people aren't going to do, because it's dull as dishwater) you're never going to find out.
It then allows people, like the above, to look at their labour MP and blame him for the failings of the Tory government without realising how hamstrung he is by their budget cuts etc.
The first time I came across how out parliamentary system works was when I was 16 and that was because I did A-level politics. So not sure But yes it’s a big failing of our education system. Keep the young oblivious unless they are interested and seek out how it all works.
But only realise when I have got older that until you’ve had some life experience of how life and decisions are made in this country then it is difficult to really get that interested. So don’t really blame a lot of young people under 18. Doesn't help they can't vote until they are 16.
