Resorting to ad-hominem insults, such as;
"54 percent of Conservative supporters "think" (if one can use such a word in this context)"
Does you no service. The way to get people on message is to engage with them, not belittle them.
A tribal reaction isn't "thinking". It is is precisely what it looks like ... an expression of tribal loyalty - uncritical, unthinking knee-jerk support. On the one hand, we get faux expressions of how the party system is damaging democracy and then, on the other, the "leader" just has to come up with a series of highly implausible proposals, and the cheers go up.
And that is, of course, why we do not get independents in parliament. The quality of debate and the strength of any ideas does not matter. It matters not what
is said, but who
says it, and the colour of the party label. Thus, the claque
belittles itself ... to imply that it does not think is not an insult - it is a statement of fact.
Significantly, the truth has far greater power than any casual insult.
