Rand Paul is joining Liberals in blaming Conservatives for the creation of the Islamic State. The accusing of fellow Americans for inciting the establishment of a terrorist organization that murders Christians and homosexuals is someone terribly lacking brain cells. This conspiracy hawk does not stand a chance in a field of candidates that harbor the necessary intelligence and do not mimic the idiot standard his father ran with that derailed him.

First of all, thank you to throughymy4eyes for alerting me to this. I stay off social media for a few hours and I miss all of this, typical! And you would have to be on social media to see this, seeing as a media blackout appears to be censoring coverage of the protests. #ToriesOutNow is the number 1 trend in the UK but has been removed at least twice from trending pages by Twitter. There are few news articles being published and so the following information has been difficult to get completely right because of lack of sources, other than people’s tweets.

I’d like to request that you reblog to signal boost. The media is deliberately censoring this protest, let’s spread the word ourselves in retaliation.

As far as I can tell, protests in London began around 6pm/7pm and have grown since then. Large crowds gathered outside the Tory HQ in Westminster with signs reading “Get The Tories Out!” and “Austerity Kills”, chanting “Tory scum” and “no more fucking Tory cuts”.

The protests are aimed at two things in particular (main reasons as I can tell)

  • The fact that 63% of us voted against the Tories, yet they still formed a majority goverment through our voting system
  • Austerity, and the prospect of 5 more years of cuts to public services.

People are angry. And rightly so. I’m angry. I know all of you are angry. Our voting system really outdid itself this time, proving that our democracy is not quite as democratic as we once thought. 

63% of us said we didn’t want a Tory goverment, so why do we have one? Proportional Representation is a tricky one for me I’ll admit. For I believe that we should have equal representation for who we all choose to vote for, rather than being handed a Tory government when 63% said no to one. I’m conflicted merely because had we had Proportional Representation in this election, UKIP would have had many more seats than it got. But that’s just me.

At least 5 police officers have been injured. Apparently they have had bottles, a bike, smoke bombs thrown at them. I saw one person report tear gas but I can’t be sure that is true at all. Sounds like the start of a small riot to me, yet where is the media coverage? No coverage from Murdoch papers so far, surprise, surprise! What little coverage there has been has been biased.

Our country cannot take five more years of austerity. We cannot take privatisation of our health service. We cannot take benefit cuts. We cannot take our services being squeezed for their last spare penny. End the cuts. End the Tories. End the misery. End the deaths, the suicides and the starvation they are inflicting upon the most vulnerable! 

I don’t know if the protests will continue. I don’t know if they will change anything. Best case scenario is they get bigger, spread to the rest of the country and we fight for a re-election. Pie in the sky, perhaps. But we can try! 

Stay classy, but fight for your right to democracy and fight for your right to a fair government. Your vote is not your voice, just because they won doesn’t mean we have to sit down and shut up.

Keeping Up With The Tories

Day One

  1. £12bn cuts to welfare, hurting the UK’s most vulnerable.
  2. Scrapping the human right’s act within 100 days. Not amending. Scrapping.
  3. Return to the table of a Snooper’s Charter, so that internet service providers would record our search histories for government perusal.
  4. Proposal to repeal the ban on fox-hunting, benefitting the UK’s most deranged upper-classes.

And that’s what you missed on ‘what the middle-aged and middle classes voted in to govern’.

The United Kingdom

Where the Justice Minister is in favour of hanging 

Where the Equality Minister voted against equal marriage 

Where the minister for Disabilities is against disability benefits 

Where the new Tory government wants to get rid of the human rights act

Where over a million people are forced to use food banks

Where the only thing that can get us through the next 5 years is a cheeky Nandos with the lads

I don’t know if anyone’s aware but there are currently protests happening in England over the Tories being elected due to the ridiculous first past the post system that doesn’t represent what the people want. The Conservatives are using their power to exploit the poor, the disabled (physically and mentally) and they’re selling off the NHS (National Health Service) so it becomes privatised. 


BUT OF COURSE THE MEDIA BLACKOUT MEANS NOT MANY PEOPLE ARE AWARE. SO HERE; NOW YOU KNOW. PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE PROTESTING FOR CHANGE. 

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT

one of the torie’s policies was to lift the ban on fox hunting. this could have EXTREMELY negative consequences as well as being a form of animal abuse. if there is a decrease of foxes due to death the food chain will become uneven - making more snakes reproduce thus needing to feed on more toads (making them decrease in population) and the amount of spiders increase to a very high amount. if you live in the UK please PLEASE sign this petition or reblog this post to try get the attention of the petition for government members to make sure they do not unban this.

animals like foxes never asked to get killed for no reason except in a natural or predatory way. please sign & reblog.
