Tory policy is predicated on the assumption that people are best making decisions for themselves, and Labour policy is predicated on the assumption that people need decisions making for them. Your idea of 'worrying about' someone is another's idea of unnecessary interference.
...and meanwhile over the last couple of hundred years in the UK we have seen that "people making decisions for themselves" fairly consistently results in the privileged, well connnected and morally ruthless winning out in time over those born into poverty or raised with more egalitarian (or indeed Christian!) values.
Top heavy/interventionist/'unneccessary influence' and the bloaty but accountable public sector is still the lesser of two evils for many people.
