NSC Licker Extraordinaire
- Jul 10, 2003
You need to read what he actually wrote and what I took issue with. It was not about what Johnson's government did or did not do, and you could well be right about Boris. But the poster arrogantly dismisses millions of his fellow citizens as being thick simply for having an opposing view - that is the issue, if you really want to see it, that is.
This whole thread is about the evidence coming out of the COVID enquiry (the clue is in the title) and what has been revealed over the last two days of the operation of the Government under Johnson and Cummings and the utter contempt with which they treated their supporters/voters/victims.
Within the context of many posts about that subject, this was posted over 12 hours and a couple of pages ago
I know. Doesn't matter how cruel, corrupt or incompetent the Tories are, there are still millions of my fellow citizens who'll say "Yeah, but Labour would be worse" or "Yeah, but all politicians are the same, so better the devil you know."
I genuinely think that a lot of Tory voters - many of them are elderly or/and uneducated - are similar to Trump's brain-dead worshippers in the US; no amount of wickedness or malevolence will make them change their minds. They will simply dismiss all criticism and evidence of wrong-doing as 'Fake News' or a 'liberal witch-hunt' against their hero.
Maybe not the words I would use but he is not dismissing them as being 'thick' because they disagree with him, it's because they dismiss all evidence which doesn't support their pre decided 'view'.
I'm really not sure what you are trying to achieve by taking this out of that context and going off at a tangent from the thread topic
