BRITS are be­com­ing more left-wing, a study on the eve of the Tory party con­fer­ence has re­vealed.

Vot­ers want the Gov­ern­ment to re­na­tion­alise the rail­ways and cap the wages of the wealthy.

The poll, by cen­tre-right think tank Le­ga­tum In­sti­tute, claims Brits see cap­i­tal­ism as greed and self­ish­ness and comes as the Con­ser­va­tives meet in Manch­ester to­mor­row. about things like stu­dent debt.

Mrs May has promised that the Bri­tish mil­i­tary will pro­tect Europe from Rus­sia de­spite the UK’s split from the EU.
