Something Fishy about Rishi

Is this real? Is he having us all on? Surely he can't be this idiotic. This Tory election campaign is fucking mental.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Put me in a room with him.

 

I'll explain to him how, until the age of 15, I lived in a rented house that had an outside toilet that we had to heat with a parafin lamp in the winter to stop the pipes freezing, no bathroom or hot running water, and that the kitchen sink had to be used for both the kitchen and getting washed, that how we only got a coulour TV about 10 years after everyone else (and then it was a first generation second hand one), and we eventually got a video recorder because I used some savings my parents had set aside when I was a child (and again it was about 6 years after everyne else).

 

I will explain that even today, some people are in a not dissimilar situation - families shearing one room in hostelm accomodation, etc.

 

I will explain these things verbally, but forcibly.

Yeah, but did you miss out on satellite TV so your parents could send you to an elite public school? Did you?!

 

Rishi had to skip D-Day commemorations to explain this ultimate sacrifice to the nation.

He says this helped pay his school fees, this massive sacrifice.

 

On current money Winchester college costs about 50k a year and sky TV costs about 30 quid for a basic package.

 

He's about the same age as me, my dad could have afforded sky and we weren't wealthy but he wouldn't have it because Rupert Murdoch owned it.

As someone mentioned on a previous thread, he really needs to understand the difference between ‘couldn’t’ and ‘wouldn’t’. 
 

My Dad was a GP, and my mum a part time College Lecturer. I guess this gives me an upbringing with a similar economic status to Sunak. 
 

We might have been better off as, although I was one of five kids, we lived in the north, and all of us went to state schools. 
 

As a kid we didn’t have all the latest stuff either. Many of my ‘less well off’ friends (I feel a cunt even writing that) had things we didn’t have. I probably moaned about it then. I was, after all, a stupid, privileged in many ways, kid. 
 

The thing is, my parents could have provided those things. They chose not to. Couldn’t is very different to wouldn’t. 
 

As an adult, probably thanks at least in part to my parents, I would never be so lacking in self awareness that I would use the example he gave to try and claim I understood the economic challenges posters like @Anubis and others had as children. I just didn’t have them, and would never try to suggest otherwise. 
 

That the Prime Minister of our country thinks he can says it all really.
 

His upbringing, education, and wealth, shouldn’t necessarily preclude him from high office. His lack of awareness, empathy, decision making skills, and many other characters flaws he has (perhaps flaws he has because of his upbringing) should.

I wasn’t having a go at you, YR, so I hope you don’t think that. I was having a go at his sense of entitlement.

 

I should add that I always had love, food, and a bed. I never considers myself in poverty or anything. It just annoys me the way he thinks.

I'm just waiting now for someone to dig up an old interview with a young Sunak with him saying "I watch all sort of programmes on Sky TV: Upstairs Downstairs, To the Manor Born, Boys From the Blackstuff ... well, not Boys From the Blackstuff."

I can't get my head around the fact this twat thinks going without Sky TV makes him "one of us".  Complete and utter knobhead.

I didn’t think that for a second. You should absolutely be pointing out his sense of entitlement. He’s one entitled cunt. 
 

He really shouldn’t try and pretend. His upbringing is what it is, and that’s not really his fault.
 

He’d be much better acknowledging the opportunities he’s had, recognising he’ll never fully understand how it might have been for others less fortunate (if that’s even the right way of describing them, maybe just a different upbringing is better) but declaring that he wants to listen, to empathise at least, and then try to act accordingly. To use the opportunities he’s had, to genuinely help others. Although I suppose, if he did that, he wouldn’t be a Tory.

I didn't think they could much lower but it appears they out and out lied to Labour and the SNP in Parliament saying that our Special Forces didn't have a veto over Afghan soldiers resettling over here after working alongside the SAS, when it transpires that they did, and they vetoed practically every application and left them there being hunted by the Taliban  in case the Afghans testified on allegations of murders by the SAS.

 

To make it even worse, the Tories sent their admittance without any notice to a random generic SNP mailbox for public queries, obviously in the hope it would be missed, but they could always cover themselves later by saying they had told the SNP.

Where's this being reported Rog?
