Is there any alternative to the jaundiced Tory attitudes?

First topic message reminder :

Depressing, isn't it? All the miserable gits can come up with is oppression of the poor and fear of the disadvantaged. Never mind, here's something that can make us all feel better about the human race - even if it does have to include Cameron and Company .........

House of Commons vote, 28 June 2017

Labour attempted to push through an amendment to the Queen's Speech calling on ministers to recruit more police officers and firefighters and to end the 1% limit on annual pay rises for public sector workers.

But their efforts were defeated in the House of Commons, with 323 MPs opposing the amendment versus 309 in favour. The result gave the Government a majority of 14.

Government benches cheered the result. They appeared not to have noticed that the Labour amendment manoeuvred the Tories and their supporters into voting against a pay-rise for the very public-sector workers upon whom they have been heaping so much praise for their valiant performance.

I'm not sure Tories really understand irony - let's hope this vote is remembered widely when we finally do get our new General Election
