grow the pie

she has such a beautiful, elegant turn of phrase

such an orator 

IF YOU GIVE A SLICE OF PIE TO A RICH MAN THEN WHEN HE EATS IT THERE WILL BE LOTS OF CRUMBS WHICH TRICKLE DOWN BECAUSE THE RICH MAN HAS ALREADY HAD LUNCH SO ISN'T VERY HUNGRY

BUT!

IF YOU GIVE A SLICE OF PIE TO A POOR MAN THEN THERE WILL BE NO CRUMBS BECAUSE THE POOR MAN IS STARVING AND HASN'T EATEN ALL DAY!

THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO GIVE THE LARGEST SLICES OF PIE TO THE RICH SO THE CRUMBS CAN TRICKLE DOWN AND GROW THE PIE!!

Crucially they’ve yet to say whether it’s just a ‘lid on’ pie or the full pastry enclosure. That’s where they’re going wrong.

We watch the porky pies grow bigger.

The honest truth is what we want.

Someone who will call a spade a digger 

and keep digging excrement. 

When the cabinet start karking it live on tv - Coffey looks distinctly unwell rn on Beeb 2 - the pietalk might be quietly dropped

it’s such a tory brexit kind of phrase

because self-evidently you can’t grow a pie, you can only share a pie

but the more people point out how nonsensical it is as a metaphor, the more people are saying the phrase “grow the pie”

best if everyone just ignore it tbh

The only thing worse and more Tory is the "anti-growth coalition"

Once again we are left contemplating what happens to a person to make them this way?  The trauma you must endure to come out the other side like this is harrowing beyond imagination.

Except it's not. It's from stakeholder capitalism which is currently in favour with the European Commission.
