Conservative governments have long been thought to support the family unit as a core value, but now the values of the Conservative Party are shifting. The family unit is less of a priority, while open-door migration, pushed by globalists, is the new priority.
What ever happened to the vow of Prime Minister Liz Truss, who promised to “lead as a Conservative” and also put an end to illegal Muslim migration?
The article below points out the irony of the globalist argument for increased and unvetted mass migration to fill the workplace gap, while now desperately attempting to push British citizens out the door into the workplace to make up for the present shortfall.
Liz Truss has done a bait and switch on the British people. What’s really going on is that a failed UK government needs British dhimmis to get to work to fund the masses of illegal Muslim migrants (who are getting VIP treatment), and to pay the bills of government overlords who are not serving their interests.
“Not-So Conservative Party: Tories Tell People to Prioritise Full-Time Work, Not Family,” by Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, October 3, 2022:
The British government has noticed some people are taking time off work to look after elderly relatives or their children and they aren’t happy these people aren’t out earning, paying taxes, and — presumably — paying for carers instead.
The Conservative Party, which has governed the United Kingdom in a succession of administrations of varying stability and effectiveness since 2010, is presently gathered for its annual conference at Birmingham, England’s second city in the heart of the nation’s former industrial heartland.
While attention has predominantly focused on the government being defeated by the media and markets less than a month into its tenure, much else has been going on, including the government minister for jobs hitting some familiar notes on the importance of making sure people are being productive GDP units rather than spending time with their families.
The Daily Telegraph, a Tory insider broadsheet newspaper, reported the remarks of a minister of state at the Department for Work and Pensions, Victoria Prentis, who said of the government’s concern:
Mid-lifers who have taken early retirement during the pandemic are now “desperately” needed back in employment, according to Victoria Prentis, a minister of state at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
She went on to say that just because people have family responsibilities such as looking after children or elderly parents it “doesn’t mean we can’t work” and it “doesn’t mean we can’t work full time”…
Don’t forget that keeping borders open in defiance of all public opinion and all election-time promises is sold, essentially, on the basis of the jobs market and economic growth needing people. Lots of people. Yet despite 1,114,065 new people coming in twelve months, the government still feels like it needs to crowbar people away from their elderly grandparents or young children to boost the workforce, which perhaps goes to show how well that open borders policy isn’t working.
