I really, REALLY don’t get it! What goes on in people’s minds? Confronted with a range of political choices most people seem to shrug and inwardly say… they are all the same.
If you are a claimant… any sort of claimant can you really be so short-sighted as to either not bother to vote or vote for one of the parties that prides itself on attacking the welfare state?
If you are an ordinary working person do you really think going down the pub instead of voting makes sense… can you really not see that your apathy could lead to you being squeezed even further by cheap imported labour and having to pay for what was once free?
My granddaughter, getting the minimum wage really cannot afford to be ill. Or at least she can be ill all she wants but can neither take time off work or afford the charges to pick up a prescription.
Are people so inane that they are really convinced that its all the fault of immigrants?
Do people actually buy into the tory claim that it was a labour government that nearly bankrupted the UK. How can you hold that thought in mind when you know every other country in the world also had a financial crisis. Rich bankers walked away while the rest of us suffered. In the Wall Street crash nearly a century ago bankers threw themselves from skyscraper windows… in the current century they just let the rest of us plummet into the depths of despond.
How can 85% of people consistently put Green Party policies ahead of all the rest and yet only 7% of people say they will vote for them?
Do people really believe that a nuclear deterrent is actually that? Do they honestly think that us having the bomb would stop self martyring nutters from blowing us all to hell or ex KBG weasels from flexing their macho muscle. Do people really think we should spend hundreds of billions of pounds on something we could never use because it would be the death of us all.
I mean come on… a hung parliament… what are you thinking of? This last lot should be so buried in the dustbin of history that their smell would only be a memory. The liberal party has so sold out that it deserves to end up in the same bin.
I am convinced that the government must be putting something in the water to make us all docile dunces who believe their press and will march off to the polls to the tune of the Eton Boating Song!
