Imagine living through the last couple of years of chaos, venality, etc. and thinking, “You know what we need? Another Tory government!”
It’s hard to Fathom. Perhaps there really is a sizeable proportion† of the population that believe that they’ll be the ones that benefit from such a choice… it reminds me of Jiminto / LDP voters in Japan, but in a more unequal society.
These large scale trials testing the limits of ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ are unethical and must be stopped!
† – polling data doesn’t seem to work as well as it used to. Whether this is an accurate snapshot of voter intentions is far more open to question than it would have been ~5 years ago. Don’t think anyone really understands why, or how it can be fixed.
