Are Tories sociopaths?

When you look at any group of people of similar mind, you will find that they take on a common or group characteristics, and traits. Dare I say a group personality?

Examining the ruling parties here in the UK, the ConDems, we find that they do conform to a common or group personality.

Further examination of this group personality leads us to ask, “Are the Tories sociopaths”? I think they are and if you look at this interesting page on the subject, you can see that most of this ConDem government conforms to type.

This definition of the malignant personality is particularly true,

(3) They scapegoat; they are incapable of either having the insight or willingness to accept responsibility for anything they do. Whatever the problem, it is always someone else’s fault.

This government has scapegoated public sector workers and, rather than look to themselves for answers to the riots, they decided that all rioters were “criminals” or were involved in gangs. They also sought to claim that all of the rioters were under the age of 25 and Black. It wasn’t true.

This also makes interesting reading,

My eyes were drawn to point 3. Tories claim to be in favour of freedom but their actions say something different: they are authoritarian and tend to admire other authoritarians (Thatcher’s admiration for Pinochet, for example).

In opposition, the Tories positioned themselves as champions of civil liberties but once in power they quickly reverted to their default position. I, for one, was not taken in by their faux Damascene conversion to civil libertarianism.

Same old Tories. Same old sociopaths.

    so according to you people who riot, people who burn down buildings, people who loot, arent criminals?

    who was it who wasted a global economic boom? it wasnt the tories was it.

  3. If you’re going to use the word ConDem to describe the government, you need to bear in mind that it’s Labour that the electorate condemned for their time in office.

    And this whole post is meant to be ironic, right?

  4. But that seems to perfectly match Labour as well and one Gordon Brown in particular… That’s the problem, doesn’t matter who we vote for the British government always gets in.

  5. Deb

    Can i just add that they and their supporters blame the last labour gov’t EVERYTIME there is an opposition to a bill. The whole ‘labour started it,’ is all about refusing to admit responsibility for their actions.
