UK Tory MP unclear on the concept of dystopia

The Getting to the Future First: How Britain can lead the Fourth Industrial Revolution report was created by Alan Mak, Conservative Member of Parliament for Havant, and it's a laughable compendium of trickle-down nonsense proposing that if all dividends from automation flow to capital, somehow everyone in the world will share in the benefits.

It hilariously characterises the Corbyn left -- an incubator for utopian visions of "fully automated luxury Communism" -- as technophobic luddites. This from a party whose policies promote the primacy of finance over the real economy, austerity over education and training, and mass internet surveillance and censorship, while dismantling the world-leading Government Data Service.

But really, the scene-stealer is that cover art. Man, oh man.
