UK Political Parties Explained SIMPLY


with elections looming I thought I’d try to explain the UK’s main political parties in the most unpatronising way possible number one you have the Conservative Party led by Theresa May now the Conservative party is quite describable by its name it’s a Conservative Party that prides these traditional values family values believes they believe in the government being small most critics agree that the Conservative Party is the low tax party in our country the party that favors the individual to go out there and make your own choices free from the restraints of government they’re also one of the most eurosceptic parties criticisms level of the Conservative Party is that they are Pro big business they are for the rich they’re for the wealthy and they cut away at welfare that goes to poor people then you’ve got the Labour Party which is more of a socialist party more of an egalitarian party about creating an equal society for everybody this means that taxes usually go up under labour and so does spending whereas with the Conservatives there’s more of this kind of living within our means sentiments labour is often seen as a more Europhile party and criticisms levelled at labour are mainly that they don’t know how to run the economy very well Jeremy Corbyn is a bit of a buffoon also they are seen as the welfare party they created the NHS they rapidly expanded the welfare state under successive Labor Governments they’re seen as the party which has possibly incentivised people to take more benefits and be less willing to contribute to society then you’ve got the Liberal Democrats now the Liberal Democrats are Pro European liberal and they’re often described as being somewhere between the Conservatives and labour they are passionately pro-european they think that we should have another referendum on Europe where as the two other parties want to take us out of Europe and follow the wills of the British public the Liberal Democrats are often described as economically liberal to an extent in that they believe like the Conservatives that people should make their own decisions I guess free from government restraint but not as free as the Conservatives believe but to balance that they do believe that we should have strong safety net a strong welfare state we should be investing in our schools in the NHS etc which is more towards the labour line so you could say that you’ve got this balance with the Liberal Democrats and as our fourth party you have UKIP the United Kingdom Independence Party which was one of the main initiators of the European Union referendum and then resultantly brexit UKIP are often described as this right-wing party and possibly a single-issue party that’s why recently polls have suggested that they’ve been losing a lot of support to the Conservative Party what UKIPs main issues are tighter controls on immigration leaving the European Union using any extra money from leaving European Union to spend on our public services and spending less of our GDP on foreign aid criticisms levelled at UKIP are that they spend too much of their time possibly talking about immigration there are as I’ve mentioned a single issue party that possibly bears no meaning now that brexit is going to happen and finally that UKIP has only has worked with one man in charge Nigel Farage who isn’t the leader of UKIP at the moment it’s Paul Nuttall so yeah those are the main four parties in the United Kingdom I didn’t think I’d mentioned any others but there are others as you might have already know the Green Party the SNP Plaid Cymru

  1. Not bad for a young one. Reasonably balanced and all true. A good introduction for those who do not know.

    The only thing I would add is that not all those on the left are pro EU, Tony Benn, was very left wing and very anti-EU.

  2. Extremely biased! All other people from other countries, none of this is true! Corbyn is NOT a Baffoon, in fact May is a right wing baffoon. This video is biased toward the Tories, this video is terrible. Tell the truth and don't be biased and you will be less hated.
    Gosh I do hate these biased Tories.

    Also why didn't you mention the Green Party's manifesto and the SNP? Such an uneducated man. Also your editing skills at the end were shit you cut yourself off 😂

  3. This is very biased and not a balanced overview of the parties equally. Calling Labour 'Bafoons' is not equal.

  4. Stupid Ningens , scared for their death.HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    Humans deserve to be Extinct.
    For ruining the planet , Killing the animals for fun,
    Praise me ,
    Revere me,
    Because I am the Most powerful God in History.

    The average Human is likely to ignore this warning ,
    but It doesn't matter ,
    if Humans cannot UNDERSTAND their mistakes and fix it they deserve to die,
    I say this because ,
    I am from a Much higher state than all you NINGENS

    Farewell Planet Earth
    And Ningens.

  5. thatswhy:TV wot makes me think you are pro Conservative, see through you i 🔍can🔎 ☎️📞

  6. How is the liberal democrat party in between labour and the conservatives😂 if anything the are far more left

  7. Very poor overview. To the uploader, if this is what you consider to be an unbiased outline you would do well to read more broadly.

  8. Any savings made out of leaving the EU will add up to nothing because the economy will shrink by a greater margin than our annual contribution amounts to. However, even if the nett result is an increase in national income: the Tories or UKIP would never use the extra money to finance the NHS. They would rather spend it instead on financing tax cuts for the super rich.

  9. "Take us out of Europe". This sentence consistently makes my blood boil. UK is in Europe. We don't need to be in the European Union.

  10. This isn't biased at all? It's just Labour supporters can't deal with criticism to their precious party and leader. Seriously just grow up. He criticised every party but it's only the Labours who can't handle it and are kicking up a fuss. Says it all really.

  11. Thanks dude. This really helped me. Sorry you're getting harassed by members of the political left. That seems to be a problem that I share here in America too. Leftists attacking me when I give an unbiased look at all sides of an argument.

  12. "Follow the wills of the british public" On an election with no thorough explanation, the torries lied through their fucking teeth. A 57-43 per cent is not a clear majority nor is it right to try and put a vote out without giving all the facts. torries and brexiters promised we would see less immigration we are seeing more,The nhs was going to be funded by money saved by leaving we have had to pay money to exit. The torries are a joke labour'sso soft it's melting the lib dems have faded into obscurity and Ukip are so one track mind they should be a fucking tram line. There is no longer a political party for the british people. All of us black,white,asian,rich and poor are being internally destroyed by our own elected officials. Our political system needs an overhaul with no more eton bum-boys talking about welfare when the closest they've been to a breadline is the bakery aisle at fucking waitrose. The house of commons is meant for the ordinary british people elected by the ordinary brits for ordianary brits. Have they ever had to walk through a park and pick needles off a swing? have they ever had to dig for pennies at the back of the couch for a milk? Have they ever grafted In a factory for minimum wadge, knowing after bills and rent, you'll have a fiver to your name. Have they ever cued at dole only to be humiliated and have all money stopped for six weeks. Cos theres no jobs in the city? What party truly speaks for Britain? There aint none and then we wonder why no one gives a shit about politics!

  13. The Conservative party is not the same anymore it’s liberal and the Labour Party is just radical socialist ukip is the only party that’s actually conservative

  14. Did you really describe them in he most unpatronizing way possible? Did you view it, watch it, and listen to yourself or do any editing? The tone, body language and words you used alone are patronizing in my humble opinion. I'm from America and describing someone as a "buffoon" and in the way that you. I'm American and know quite a lot about your politics (I even watch the weekly PM question time) and listening to both Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn go at one another on the issues, you could easily find a name for her too. She never answers a question and sounds like a broken record. She lost her majority with the snap election she gambled on because she wanted a "strong and stable" government right? The people saw her as weak and wobbly during the campaign and some of the voters feel they were lied to in the Brexit referendum, had no clue what they were actually voting on. UKIP sold a bill of goods and disappeared off the seen. Not 1 seat in parliament.

    As an objective third party I'd demand a second referendum on whatever May agrees to with the EU because either way folks will feel they are not getting what they asked for when they voted. The country is split. When you have clear language and the actual so called "Brexit" deal that he EU and May works out, it would have been done behind closed doors. In 2 years I've learned asking Yes or No should we leave the EU is not a fair question if politicians are playing games and tricks on the people.

    Interesting video. Thank you for posting and make it a great day!

  15. Will you please briefly explain to me the differences between the DUP and Conservatives/Labour? Many thanks from the USA, just across the pond from ya! 🙂

  16. 0:28 – Conservatives: favours the individual to go out and make their own decisions free from the restraints of government.
    1:20 – Labour: Seen as the party which has possibly incentivise people to take more benefits and be less willing to contribute to society.
    1:55 – Liberal Democrats: I guess free from government restraint but not as free.
    2:59 – UKIP: They are a single issue party, which possibly bears no meaning, and finally UKIP has only ever worked with Nigel Farage.

    Smelling some slight bias

  17. Thanks for saving my life! I have a big exam tomorrow and I understood nothing about UK's Parties until your video and now I do (at least I think so)

  18. To be honest we obv do have an immigration problem look how well Poland are doing and they don’t take in any, look how the crime literally does rise after countries take in these people , they go off radar and we put the British people after these people only because their country perhaps doesn’t want to look after them, but what I can’t stand is when they come over here and push their religions , agendas ect and try to take away good British values that’s actually kept this place from turning into a shit show worse Like the countries they are coming from . Again just my opinion
