It was because the forces of progress were so often divided that the 20th century was a Conservative century.Yes, chum. And the 21st will probably also be a century of the right, if not the Conservatives than some other incarnation. Because the right are the true progressives, and always have been.
In contrast, the politics of the left are wholly regressive and always have been. In the past 11 years of left wing government the nation has regressed to early 19th century levels of literacy, record crime at Georgian levels and atomisation of our society, a deepening social divide and a life expectancy in Labour strongholds that's lower than Algeria's, £80bn a year in taxes paid to 5m welfare slaves for no point whatsoever and our economy shattered. How much further back do you want Labour to take us? Just a few decades of socialism in Russia regressed that nation about 600 years.
Listen, sweetie. I don't know what you've been smoking amongst those dreaming spires, but right wing = progressive, left wing = regressive. Got it?
