Think we should declare a moratorium on calling people a Tory


#201

Let’s just all be decent to each other, hey?

(Haven’t read the thread)


#202

this is what I’m saying we shouldn’t be doing.

Nice to find common ground :slight_smile:


#203

It had to be done as I could anticipate what would be said next and I do actually have some work to do. And the sooner I finish that work the sooner I can go home.


#204

Because it’s hypocritical?


#205

Shut it, turd!


#206

no, it’s not hypocritical I’m afraid.

Sorry we lost it :frowning:


#207

welp, i’m ill at home so i’m going to keep going down this line of questioning.

Was it JUST question time you would watch?


#208

Clive loves watching political stuff. I don’t because of the overwhelming Tory bias. I was mostly looking at stuff on my phone, to be fair.


#209

i’d say its used as humourous shorthand to criticise unthinking privilege, usually. i think that’s fine. also sometimes its obviously just mucking about like - whats your favourite soup?

  • minestrone
  • minesTORY

0 voters

that’s also fine.


#210

Maybe the real Conservative Party is the friends we made along the way.

(Haven’t read the thread, seems pretty Tory to me)


#211

Coming swaggering in, swinging your big opinions around without reading the thread?

Very Tory (sorry Bam etc, but this kind of was asking for it).


#212

Might start a tory pride thread

(not really)


#213

I think the problem is it’s used too often and too sweepingly, like DB said, poor or working class people can get nice treats too.

If you go to a nice restaurant or have a holiday you’re not automatically a Tory.


#214

yeah that’s probably true. dont really care though, maybe i care about 11%.


#215

though maybe if you go to a nice restaurant every day and often spend many thousands on a holiday you do need to check your privilege sometimes


#216

Not automatically, just highly, highly probable!


#217

‘roof blew off’


#218

Yeah well, um, it TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE!

Boom. 2-1 colossalhorse.


#219

I hate eating in nice places because they just make me feel like a right skank. Just this whole embarrassing pretence of being a poor person indulged for an evening makes my skin crawl.


#220

Completely depends on the context for me.

Saying someone’s a Tory because they have sugar in their tea’s silly.

Saying someone’s a Tory because they regularly mention their sizeable salary’s perfectly fine and should be encouraged.
