Some conservative think tank once discovered that propertied people (homes, funds, cars) did not strike and voted conservative, and Mrs. Thatcher believed them and gave away council houses and shares and pushed car ownership against public transport.

Those think tanks were right. As a result the UK have had ever since decades of uninterrupted conservative policies.

For example, right now 70% of voters in the UK own real estate, and the government knows that rising real estate prices are key to electoral success.

So, many successive governments have ensured the leverage and terms of trade of propertied people, business owners or real estate owners (or the ''owners'' of a sinecure-for-life in the NHS or local councils or the civil service, many of them well connected with the party ruling in their area), have become stronger, while those of the unpropertied minority have become weaker.

In part because they are a minority, but also because this minority is largely immigrant, and thus they *cannot vote*.

For example it has been declared government policy to drive down the costs of the NHS with the immigration of health workers, or ancillary workers, and reducing the leverage of workers in general; because most voters are older and asset rich, and most of the heavily exploited immigrants don't have voting rights.

So for example current employee rights are mostly summarised as ''if you don't like it here, find another job, we have a queue outside''. Fairly intimidatory, and "markets usually find them out eventually" is just bullshit -- employers can be ferociously mean and stingy without being outright abusive, and the market is being rigged to give as much leverage as possible to employers.

In part because in a very real sense the government is a major exploiter on behalf of the majority of voters who want the cheapest health care, cheapest waiters, cheapest cleaners, cheapest builders... It is hard to get good staff nowadays :-), and the government wants to help.

Nothing new from the 19th century, with the czech and polish in lieu of the irish or the yorkshiremen.

When her Monster Ball tour Chanel handbags online landed recently in Tokyo, La Gagita

message that loosely translates Chanel handbags sale to "I love little monster.

that she uses to refer to her fans,handbag sale so her Birkin message was a shout-out to those that would be attending

her Japanese shows. Using accessories and the paparazzi to communicate-clever, or not so much?
Regular readers of the blog will authentic handbags know that I'm a huge Lady Gaga fangirl, so I think it's fairly

clever. It's not the most interesting thing she's ever done, designer handbags but playing with fashion and blurring

the lines of social acceptability are two things that are integral to her public image, and not only does a Sharpie’d Birkin combine those things effectively, but it has

managed set tongues replica handbags wagging all over the internet.
