Default I want a Tory govt.

i've voted Tory all my life.
and i hate how people say we';re the "nasty party". people fall for all these stereotypes and don't critically analyse.

If we're so bad and evil, how come we don't start illegal foreign wars?
How come we don't say we hate Jews, and have half-baked investigations to root it out? There are more prominent non-white Tories than there ever were Labour MPs. Let's not discount two female PMs, and a Jewish PM many years ago.

We Tories get too much of a bad rap, and it needs to stop.

Funny you should mention “Labour antisemitism.” Next you’ll be saying that it’s not acceptable for politicians, MPs and other public figures to voice honest criticism of Israeli government foreign policy, or settlement policy? Or not OK for Labour Party members to support Palestinian statehood?

Also I’m not sure what you mean by “a Jewish MP many years ago.”

There are, of course, many Jewish MPs right now, and in the recent past, and “many years ago.”

Those are their opinions, to which they're entitled.
That's a lot different from the actual allegations presented.

And what proportion of those allegations are substantial or legitimate?

Here's a Tory who doesn't get a bad rap:

I think you should listen to him this time.

P.S. No party has said they "hate Jews" - that's a very malicious charge to make.
