I appreciate this is difficult for conservative voters to explain. The "Conservative" government has not been in the least 'conservative' in the commonly understood way so it is anyone's guess at the moment.
We are, it seems, exiting the Johnson cult. Then it was easy to understand what they believed in - it was Johnson. They worshipped Johnson and his ability to get and keep them in power. They would stand for almost anything to keep him while he could perform. So we had the Johnson cult. It still exists, in the same way the Trump cult does, but it doesn't feel as if the majority "believe" anymore.
The mantra common to all those standing for the leadership is "tax cuts". Generally, it doesn't seem to matter which taxes they cut, nor do they seem to have an answer as to how this will revive the economy - it won't. Ask what they will do about inflation, poverty, low growth and cuts to public spending. There is no answer. This tax-cutting, wealth-retaining party is going to borrow to do this. So where is Prudence now?
Tax is not our problem - growth is. This swath of walking egos talk endlessly about tax but rarely, if at all, about growth. Perhaps, along the way to poverty, they will offer another useless clown to entertain us. Let's face it, they are quite good at that. Such a pity we can't live on laughter.
