Do you think there's really any appetite for libertarianism in the UK? Look at the polling for support of the NHS, welfare state and even nationalisation of utilities etc, the majority of the British public favour a big state taking care of the citizens and taking control of key industries.

You only have to look at how people are still talking about Tory/Labour even after what we have witnessed the last 3 and a bit years mate......literally folks ha w got amnesia that the Torys have mugged them off as much as any other party in Westminster.

They have not suddenly changed from a bunch of pricks into defenders of democracy in 8 weeks !

People are brainwashed to think itโ€™s Tory, labour or nothing.

i say to them, just vote for someone else.....anybody else !

I just think libertarianism is just a non-starter in a country like the UK, Farage figured that out with the Brexit party pushing a much more populist economic message calling for massive infrastructure spending etc because he's understood that bulk of Brits just won't support libertarian economic policy.

Even the Leave campaign which could have gone down a libertarian path in arguing against the EU was full of populist economic messaging, they didn't put "we send ยฃ350m a week to the EU, let's cut your taxes instead" on the side of a bus did they

Corbyn says I'm not allowed to stop posting on here during elections until I get at least one of you c**ts to vote Labour.

So I don't think I'll be going anywhere anytime soon :cray:

It is a non starter mate, but that is only because of the mindset.

I just don't see that mindset changing really, of course if I let polling stop me campaigning for what I believe in I would have given it up as a bad job decades ago. You never know what's coming round the corner to shift the public's thinking.
