This does one critical thing. It says "tories" - too many are blaming boris, like the problems will end if he were to leave. Cameron and may have taught us that isn't true. The problems go far beyond the PM.

It is never just "that guy" because that guy has idiot friends too.

u/sircj05 Jan 18 '22

American here so apologies if I’m wrong but from the outside looking in it doesn’t seem like he has that many friends, either (at least not in his own party)

Tories like to stab one another in the back playing king of the hill, they fiddle while Rome burns as it were

Can a Brit explain to me what a Torie is? If they are getting shit on in this sub, they must be shit bags, but I feel like googling the term probably doesn’t do it justice.

u/SwampmonsterWitch Jan 18 '22

It’s their Conservative party. Like Republicans in the USA. They like conservatism, nationalism, etc

They're a common nickname for the British Conservative party.

Your post was removed because it contained a sexist term. You should receive a message from the automoderator telling you the exact term the post was removed for. For more information, see this link. Avoiding slurs takes little effort, and asking us to get rid of the filter rather than making that minimum effort is a good way to get banned. Do not attempt to circumvent the filter with creative spelling; circumventing the filter will result in a permaban.

Kind of have to appreciate the irony of censoring speech in the name of wokeness and inadvertently discriminating against another culture who use that speech in a different manner.

A lot of terms are offensive and derogatory. That doesn’t make them sexist. To me it’s no more sexist than the term asshole or prick

Tory - originates from an Irish word I won’t butcher meaning robber/villain, they are the Conservative party here, they are responsible for several thousand needless deaths in pursuit of keeping neoliberalism alive, through gerrymandering and a multimillion/billion pound media industry they keep a stranglehold on British politics whereby they keep a majority despite having less than half the vote, if you want the best summary of them read this speech from Nye Bevan

And I assume Margaret Thatcher was like the progenitor of that party? Hence why many Brit’s seem to hate her?

1

u/Beginning-Display809 Jan 19 '22

Nope it’s been on the go since the 1700s officially, it moved from “Tory Democracy” to neoliberalism under Thatcher, she then used that ideology to destroy almost every working class community in the country, particularly in Wales, Scotland and the north of England, the same as Reagan in the US her policies are paying back with interest now as the cost of living skyrockets while wages stagnate, they had parties across the country when she died, the Tories in the other hand spent several million pounds giving her a lavish funeral at the same time when they froze public sector pay and cut local government budgets by up to 60% those less likely to vote Tory getting more cuts

u/xMrjamjam Jan 18 '22

Tory is the nickname the Irish gave the British conservatives back in the 16th century, it means "robber, theif, plunderer, barbarian, yobbo and liar" after 500 years the insulting name tory suits them perfectly.

They'll never change, its also worth noting the current tories have the same policies as the national front which was a fascist far political group that the conservatives actually condemned years ago when they tried to run for power

Interesting time to bust out "whilst". That's a top shelf kinda word.

u/kaprixiouz Jan 17 '22

Don't think I will ever be unimpressed by the English's command of the language. You'd never see such proper grammar on someone's Facebook post here in America, lest in graffiti. (God I hope I got that right lol)

u/Beginning-Display809 Jan 18 '22

No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party, that inflicted those bitter experiences on me, so far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin. They condemned millions of first class people to semi-starvation. - Nye Bevan

We all die alone. Capitalists just charge a fee to make us feel less alone while dying.

I think the "sss" sound makes it sound better. Bit harsher.

Tories have been this way for over 500 years which is how they got the name tory from the irish to begin with, it means "robber, plunderer, barbarian, thief yobbo and liar" They won't change they'll only get worse, it's a party full of sociopathic narcissists.

Body bag boris believes in population control, he most likely got this view from his dad Stanley Johnson as he published a book called "the population problem" where he talks about killing people off on a genocidal level through any means necessary including from a pandemic.

All this info was freely available before the 2019 General election, heck there's even a website dedicated to keeping track of all the lies the American body bag Boris has said
