This is what I wrote when someone said what they thought the reason was why people who had previously voted Conservative, did not do so this time.
"It's simply the effect of Tory policy of not spending on education, health or welfare"
No it is not.
It is quite far from that.
I do struggle to quantify quite what it is wrong.
Their action or inaction on immigration, net zero, policing and defence can be added to that list too.
I wouldnt count myself as wanting less spent on welfare maybe, but other previous tory voters may be in that category.
Also, many want less spent on overseas aid.
On pronoun and the like stuff. etc.
I cant speak for all previous tory voters, but as for myself, I was saying the other day to someone, I could quite happily make many cuts in the current tory budget. On mnay different things.
Not sure where I stand on tax, personally.
What are your reasons?
