Conservative ups and downs
It’s been a rollercoaster ride for the conservatives these last few weeks. They have had some good ideas and they have also had their MEPs shown as corrupt and fleecing the taxpayer for everything they can.
They have finally had a good idea concerning education. They want to allow private companies to run schools in the way that Sweden does. The Swedish education system works so it is a fantastic policy which I have liked for a long time. It’s about time we adopted it in this country.
Unfortunately for the Conservatives they have been exposed as cheats swindling the taxpayer. More than half of their MEPs have refused to comply with rules requiring them to reveal how they spend our money. These people should not have a choice in the matter. They are supposed to work for our interests. We are the ones who pay them. We need transparency to stop sleazy politicians taking us for mugs.
