Anyone who votes Conservative now wants shooting… not even joking, as they clearly have no care for the everyman and woman of this country.

Matt Franks August 5, 2022 - 9:54 PM

This is common knowledge and comes as no surprise . I wonder why the media decided now was the time to break this age old story.?

Amfear Liathmor August 5, 2022 - 9:55 PM

WEF Fishi Sunk speaking to his base.
The Tory Middle England Middle Class section of society has always seen the lower 40% poverty people of the UK population as disposable and irrelevant, even annoying to the point of hated.

But they haven't yet been Bailey In.

Boy are they going to be in for the ride. Of course the Brexit and Climate Change Emergency delusions will be quickly forgotten, when their basic survival needs aren't being met.

i guess he better increase cost of living payments too 1000 to pay us poor people off

Mr Soft August 5, 2022 - 9:56 PM

Absolute weapon

S 888 August 5, 2022 - 9:56 PM

Vote Labour next time guys.

Mr Soft August 5, 2022 - 9:59 PM

Sunak actually does look like this emoji 💩

Ayebee Mk2 August 5, 2022 - 9:59 PM

maybe that might even wake a few people up!

xanxus211 August 5, 2022 - 10:00 PM

This is a smoking gun. Not just for Sunak but the rest of the BS tory government. Notice how he says this is what has done rather than what he will promise to do. So much for "Levelling UP". Question is how many other Tories hold such views.

Muhammad Omer August 5, 2022 - 10:01 PM

Liz is worse. We need russell brand on lenny henry as PM

Bealtaine Cottage August 5, 2022 - 10:01 PM

Utterly shameful man!

Mansman August 5, 2022 - 10:01 PM

This is bad, it’s like a labour leader saying than they are trying to engineer a Marxist utopia by over throwing the middle and upper classes. We might all imagine they do dream of that sort of thing in their private moments, but to say it out loud seems naive and embarrassing in the extreme.

J August 5, 2022 - 10:02 PM

This isn't just Rishi, it's the Tory mentality generally.

Hello You August 5, 2022 - 10:02 PM

It's ok it's ok his working class friends will raise his boat upon their dirty smelling shoulders and he will sail fourth to a triumphant docking !!!!!!! 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🥱🥱🥱🥱🥱💨💨💨💨💨💨💨

Amfear Liathmor August 5, 2022 - 10:02 PM

When a Tory DOESN'T LIE.

Brendan Brendan h August 5, 2022 - 10:05 PM

Wow ! That reminds me of Shirley Porter and the "homes for votes scandal"

Samara Gooch August 5, 2022 - 10:07 PM

Like a reverse Robin Hood… what an absolute A🕳!

dick jones August 5, 2022 - 10:07 PM

this makes me rasist.

tony thomas August 5, 2022 - 10:09 PM

He’s probably inclining to fund deprived rural areas instead of funding deprived urban areas so that those deprived in urban areas can move to rural areas….but , we’ll have ask him or his campaign…

N B August 5, 2022 - 10:09 PM

Shameless rishi

Peter Linfield August 5, 2022 - 10:10 PM

What an unpleasant man! So much for levelling up.

A J August 5, 2022 - 10:10 PM

"Areas like this" He's in Tunbridge Wells were the average house price is £530,000. They are all the same!

michael johnson August 5, 2022 - 10:11 PM

The rich will get richer and poor will get poorer always has happened in this country

Concerned One August 5, 2022 - 10:12 PM

Well that’s a surprise. 🤔

Lyrical Gammster August 5, 2022 - 10:16 PM

Tory policies, so so shocked…

stringer 2295 August 5, 2022 - 10:16 PM

He looks like Mr Bean. Weedy. Ineffectual and weird.

Tj R August 5, 2022 - 10:16 PM

A politician that openly admits to stealing from the poor to give to the rich. Well at least that’s refreshing.

Sau Mo August 5, 2022 - 10:18 PM

This woman Liz approach is utterly pathetic and deserves total condemnation . She wants to reward those on top by having this so called tax cuts that benefits the already skyrocketting profits of the Giants of the economy . This is about fairness or growing the country's economy. It is not even about conservatism . It is wrong

Daren Higham August 5, 2022 - 10:18 PM

"we inherited from the labour party"!? What?

Lindsay cooke August 5, 2022 - 10:19 PM

That’s him finished !! …I find this disgusting..

Sylvia August 5, 2022 - 10:19 PM

Slumdog has run amok

Ken jim Rankin August 5, 2022 - 10:20 PM

This is the real Sunak, out for the rich,

Arnold Leitch August 5, 2022 - 10:20 PM

at what point do we just do away with all these fools who rob and lie to us

Thomas Rakewell August 5, 2022 - 10:21 PM

The fact he ever said this out loud, even if it is to a bunch of Tories who agree with him, shows how naive and out of touch he is. Utterly unsuitable for government.

Sanjay Balle August 5, 2022 - 10:22 PM

Seems like all the media outlets are trying to sucker punch Rishi. Racism will always be rife in the UK and people of colour always have to work harder to have the same opportunities. Even when they make it to the top, there are always people ready to stain their image.

Ken jim Rankin August 5, 2022 - 10:22 PM

Robin Hood in reverse what a reputation to have,

AH August 5, 2022 - 10:24 PM

So he does judge people by their bank accounts

JottoCCG August 5, 2022 - 10:27 PM

Just so people keep perspective here, the gov knew this was happening and were fine with it.
Sunak oversaw it, but they are ALL complicit if not directly responsible.

Hari Om August 5, 2022 - 10:27 PM

Look all are crooks, draft Nigel Farage

Saqib Munir August 5, 2022 - 10:27 PM

its fine people on the poverty line/bread line wont understand this because they would rather vote for what's best against them rather than for them… so let those people suffer xD

Matt94Alexander August 5, 2022 - 10:28 PM

Can’t understand why he doesn’t have any working class friends? 🤷‍♂️

N Narayana Bhat August 5, 2022 - 10:28 PM

LISTEN and UNDERSTAND PROPERLY "labour party that shelved funding into deprived urban areas that needs to be undone" meaning He is funding those deprived urban areas

Nobody August 5, 2022 - 10:31 PM

Sunak, Truss both are V.T.S. How can anyone vote tory, sickening.🤮.

Snowy Owel August 5, 2022 - 10:33 PM

What a flipping hypocrite he is unfit to be prime minister.
Put Boris on the ballot paper.

Monkey Boy August 5, 2022 - 10:35 PM

Fishy Rishi just hammered the final nail in his campaign coffin. Now he can spend time with his aristocrat chums splashing about in his indoor heated pool.

Why Oh why August 5, 2022 - 10:37 PM

Who needs enemies? Tories have each other to stab in the back and if they didn’t, they are committing political suicide without outside assistance! These muppets are meant to lead by example- unfortunately, people ARE following their despicable behaviour! And we ask why the country is aspiring to be a third world country! YES aspiring, because we put 3rd world countries to shame! And before Labour starts gloating, please, the kettle should look in the mirror before asking the pot!

TheSnoozeFox August 5, 2022 - 10:38 PM

So? they built the "YOOF CENTRES" and they still stabbed eachother.
