I genuinely struggle to understand why people do not think that this is how a just and fair society should operate, or why people vote Tory in the full knowledge that doing so increases inequality as the few get better off at the expense of the many.

It's easy to understand. People are quite selfish - you can see this every time you drive anywhere in a car - people cut you up, push in front of you, won't let you pull out etc. They know they can't really be seen and their incognito status means they can escape censure. This is what happens when they get behind the curtain in a polling booth, and why the polls repeatedly underestimate the amount of votes for the Tories. People behave selfishly and vote for what they think are their own interests, although most are mistaken.

Group-think brainwashing is common practice in this country. We have the most right wing press in a developed nation, but everyone thinks that The Sun speaks for the working man because it graciously entertains the workers with football reports and a pair of tits every day.
There is virtually no chance of working people voting for their real interests because they have been spoonfed that the Tories have saved the economy from Labour, they will reduce immigration, we need nuclear weapons and Corbyn is a terrorist sympathiser who can't lead his party let alone the country.
Besides - those public school types are natural born leaders anyway and remember the Looney Left? Thatcher saved us from that lot in the 80s. Theresa May is a bit like Thatcher ain't she?
