Any details given as to what the voter wants? Bet it isn’t anything economic or to the betterment of their grandchildren.

For quite a few, it will be "just leave me alone and stop telling me what to do". Yes, I know.

Thing is, some people will take instruction from their "betters" easier than they will from "that jumped up care assistant gymslip mum who thinks she's all that". They also have the idea that anyone with money or influence always had it. See Marcus Rashford for a good example.

My mum, God bless her and keep my hands from her throat, is like this. "I'm as good as anybody else", "Who does she think she is?" is regularly aimed towards anyone trying to better themselves, yet as far back as I can remember she has always been instinctively on the side of the bosses and those with money. A friend of hers has a son whose business went into adminIstration and she was full of sympathy for the loss of his nice car and his children's private education. For his out of work staff and his creditors, nary a word.

I noticed this with my dad during the England game. He hates Sterling for being a jumped up little scrote, "who does he think he is?", more concerned with being a social media gangsta than playing football etc.

Ok, how about Marcus Rashford? Lives a fairly quiet life as far as I can tell, altruistic, tries to help impoverished kids in need. Should be a totally different perception right?

Nope, Rashford is also a jumped up little scrote, "who does he think he is?", more concerned with bullying people into socialism than playing football (and besides if he cares so much why doesn't he pay more money towards it eh?)

I suspect if I pushed it further we would've got to the point where the only black person he's enjoyed seeing on TV was meek, gullible Denzil in Only Fools & Horses.
