What survey did you guys use for that graph? I fancy giving it a whirl!
It was: https://voteforpolicies.org.uk/
Took a while to do if you selected all of the categories. Think I got a bit bored toward the end.
A quote I like, no idea who said it, maybe Dave-from-down-the-pub is, "Most people are in favour of taxing the rich. However, no one thinks they are rich."
Voted this morning (postal). Found this little party called BNP. I assume they're a spin off from SNP but are all about Barking. Since SNP are popular at the moment, I thought I would go with them.
I can't find the source of the quote but it is good and certainly been well demonstrated earlier in this thread. Personally I do feel reasonably well off as I'm young, fit and healthy but I do worry about when I'm not and I'm going to need the NHS or rely on benefits because despite the paradise some people make it out to be, that isn't the reality and I really dislike the demonising of the poor and disabled that's common in the media. I do wonder if people like me should be putting a bit more into the system to protect the likes of the NHS and those who need the help although I realise it's not all a huge piggy bank and in years to come when I need the help, it could well be long gone.
While I'm amused at equating a £55,000 car to my £1,000 Mavic, I could defend that and my other luxuries by pointing out those are a result of my life choices - I don't have a hugely expensive car (in 20 years of motoring, not spent more than 25K combined on all my cars), I live in an inexpensive part of the country, I have no partner or children, I don't drink alcohol, I very rarely ever take holidays and rarely eat out. Plus I have a three
year old phone which I got cheap as a German import and my PC I think is ticking on six years old...I realise the latter is hilariously in accurate but misleading omissions seem to be the way to go. While I could claim on that basis I'm hard done by, I would fully expect to be laughed at and the truth is I don't feel hard done by particularly when I know people who are genuinely struggling and haven't made any expensive life choices.
