Labour Party Vs Conservative Party

I asked my friend's little daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be Prime Minister some day.

Both her parents, Labour supporters, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were the Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?" She replied, " I'd give food and houses to all those poor people on benefits."

Her Parents Beamed and said, "Welcome to the Labour Party!"
"That is a worthy goal!" I told her , and continued, "But you don't have to wait until you are Prime Minister to do that. You can come over to my house, mow the lawn, pull weeds, swipe my drive and I'll pay you 25. Then I'll take you over to that homeless chap who hangs out in front of the store. You can give give him 25 to use toward food."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless man come over and do the work himself and you can just pay him the 25?"

I smiled and said, "Welcome to the Conservative Party."
