Tory discussion paper: UK more like China, profits before safety, jobs replaced by robots

Pride's Purge

Tory MP Alan Mak is not much liked by his fellow Tory MPs, who have accused him of  obsessive “self-promotion” and of “getting up people’s noses“.

His parliamentary colleagues even once had to gang together to prevent Mak from ‘bagging’ his favourite spot behind David Cameron at Prime Minister’s Questions, which Mak had hoped would enable TV appearances:

But Mak is likely to prove even more unpopular now after producing a bizarre discussion paper for the party on the effects of new technology on Britain’s workers.

First of all, throughout the paper, Mak patronisingly describes British people to his fellow Tories as ‘our workers‘:

That’s you and me he’s talking about, folks.

Even more bizarrely, in the paper Mak gushingly praises China’s controversial President Xi, claiming the UK should emulate the Communist leader’s love of massive projects such as his ‘Belt and Road Initiative‘.
