Not just children. The Tories need a kind of generalised hate to keep them in power. "Look! Over there! The poor people have all your money!". Not because a plurality of the electorate actually fall for it but because the billionaires who own the media keep the noise deafening to make sure no one pays any attention to their grift. Which means that the Labour party is too spineless to oppose it, keeping turnout nice and low while the Tories chase the fash to the right.

Seems eerily similar to the strategy in America

Indeed. Fascism is power protecting itself. And, even if the specifics vary worldwide, power has needed a great deal of protection since it fucked up and crashed the global economy. Again.

Labour aren't spineless—they're complicit. Outside of that very small window where Jezza was "in charge" (read: the donors fucked up, and fixed it shortly thereafter), Labour in our living memory has never been anything but Dollar Store Democrats with smart boy accents.
