Theresa May set to BOOST rights for workers in ‘greatest’ family friendly policies pledge.
Just as you were thinking that there was nothing more that the conservatives could announce in their quest for support from, "traditional working class voters". Just as you thought that there could be no more "policies" that the government could produce to try to convince everyone that the conservatives are the natural party to represent working people and the only party to safeguard ordinary people and their families. Just as you thought that you had heard it all, the Conservatives today announce an impracticable, imprudent, foolhardy and most importantly of all, completely uncosted policy, as their latest attempt to regain some ground in this election campaign.
The conservatives propose that The cost and disruption to industry, particularly small business employing less than 200 workers, would be immeasurable and the additional "red tape" to administer the proposals would cripple many firms and drive up costs. Clearly, only very large companies would be in a position to absorb the additional costs and the increased disruption.
We can be confident of what the reaction in the media would have been had the Labour party included this proposal in its manifesto. Those champions of balanced reporting, truth and reason, would have been in hysterics screaming in their headlines and from anywhere else that people may hear them, that the Labour party was attacking small business with uncosted policies which would drive up prices place massive burdens on companies and force many small businesses to go to the wall.
Banner headlines demonstrating a contemptuous bias in media coverage, all too common in this present day and particularly during this election campaign.With the propaganda from the press and the hypocrisy from the Prime Minister, the British people are being fed a diet of fabrication in the hope that they will be deceived into voting for the conservatives on June 8th. The falsehood that the conservative party are the only party to represent working people and their families.The lie that Labour has "deserted working-class voters", and now the glaringly obvious subterfuge to attract votes with a cynical appeal, proposing a policy which everyone knows to be nothing more than a contemptuous plea for votes.
