Of course. And the implication and invariable result of Toryism is the reverse, (even though most Tory voters, mostly decent people, delude themselves into thinking otherwise)


By the way, I don't entirely agree that they delude themselves.

In the absence of evidence or explanation as to how voting Tory can do anything but the reverse (as you rightly say), it must be more than self delusion, it has to be a deliberate ignoring of an inconvenient truth because there is some advantage to themselves (not sure what though) in voting for a party that demonstrably fails every time it is in power to reduce the gap between rich and poor and in fact goes out of its way increase that gap.
