The Tories think you’re stupid enough to believe there’s no link between these 3 facts. Are you?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

If there’s one thing more annoying than politicians openly pandering to big business interests at the expense of doing what’s right – it’s politicians openly pandering to big business interests at the expense of doing what’s right and thinking we’re all too stupid to notice.

Here are three facts:

  1. Lynton Crosby is the Tories’ chief election strategist.
  2. Lynton Crosby’s firm Crosby Textor is a paid lobbyist for big tobacco companies such as Philip Morris and British American Tobacco.
  3. The Tories have dropped plans to introduce plain packaging for cigarettes – a policy strongly opposed by big tobacco companies such as Philip Morris and British American Tobacco.

Now, got your stupid hat on? Good. Because here’s what the Tories want you to believe.

These three pieces of information are entirely unrelated. 

OK?

About thepositivevoice

We originally set out to advocate and campaign for and on behalf of people living with HIV in Greater Manchester. But we chose to slightly change our name by adding beyond. Therefore our name is Greater Manchester & Beyond of People Living With HIV & AIDS. Cause there are many issues that affects people living with HIV we now look ate other health and social care issues that will affect people living with HIV in their everyday lives. For the purpose of this site we have chosen a strap-line name hence our user name here - this is of course "thepositivevoice". The reason for this is often the issues that affect us can be quite daunting and discriminatory to our very existence. So whatever negative we hear and see - we endeavour to turn that into a positive. There are many examples where a negative has turned into a positive and one of those example is the term "Queer" - well that is also quite interesting as some people in the lesbian and gay community don't like that very word - some have decided to own it. Therefore any person that calls another person (the example here) queer - some gay people will reply yes we are. As time moves on and I as the author of this blog - information will be never-ending. So watch this space.
