UK Voters Beware

The election results and the resurgence of the Labor Party is problematic.  The Labor Party supports more police, but more police doesn’t prevent terrorist attacks. The Labor Party supports taxing the rich, which is ok unless it prompts them to move and remove jobs from the UK.

I would think that the UK voters would want a stronger private sector economy, not an expanded government bloated socialist economy, but they might not understand that their economic well-being is attached to a strong private sector and more government spending just increases their debt and taxes and doesn’t solve the problems.

If the voters were attracted to the Labor Party because they support giving away more free stuff, like free college tuition, they should do the math and figure out how high their taxes could go. There is a point at which the private sector can’t pay for everything the government wants to do.

I sense that the UK voters are not happy with Theresa May for multiple reasons. She did nothing as Home Secretary to prevent terrorism. Older voters don’t want their pensions cut and most voters don’t understand the need to expand the private sector. But the loss in votes for the Scottish Party indicates that voters still want to exit the EU.
