While global politics is identity, tribalism and value, more money is still prevalent in the British class

It seems unbelievable that two characters with such ideologies, Thatcher’s successors, who basically only disagree on whether to reduce taxes sooner or later, and whether without new cuts and a return to austerity. It is possible to increase public spending. Treat each other as if they were the North Pole and the South Pole. It seems unlikely that the loser in the bloody battle will hold office in the next government.
