Why? because they realise they are about to join the great un washed, and as such they are turncoats now that the shoe is on the other foot...they when faced with the loss of their incomes, are choosing a socialist govt with its empathy toward the welfare state..which they realise they may well be soon part of...national wont give a fuck that someone who was a soaring entrepreneur in say tourism yesterday, now needs help..they will treat them as tax bludgers and seek to punish them for their failures in a capitalist system as they always have.
That's quite the sweep of opinion there, can I asked based on what?
You appear to assume that the same people that managed to build a life for themselves previously are about the strip down to their underwear, give up washing and personal hygiene, sit on their couches and expect free money to do so.
Can I point out that not everyone that has something was handed it by some rich benefactor, most people worked for everything they have and some of them worked damn hard. And should they lose everything they have through no fault of their own they have every fucken right to expect help no matter which party they have voted for in the past.
It might also pay for you to remember many of the businesses that will fail in the next year or so will have done everything they could to stay afloat, whether working even longer hours, cost cutting and whatever else they deemed necessary. Not only for themselves but in many cases for the people they also employ. You obviously have never spent many unpaid hours at work trying to make sure you have work for your staff, and you have also obviously never had to bring someone into your office to tell them that through no fault of their own you can no longer keep them employed due to a change in the business.
Actually if the time comes that I have to do that with some of my staff maybe you can sit opposite them rather than me and tell them them are about to lose their ability to support their family. But it's for the best because at least you didn't catch Covid19.
I keep seeing posts on here about heartless National governments, but your post that I took the paragraph from and some earlier ones show a level of heartlessness to match any National government, all touchy feely about looking after the under privileged but only if they meet your standards.
