Waiting on you Germany. Time to get rid of that Reverse-Hitler Angela Merkel! She sold her soul and the German people to muslim migrant rapists and murderers in exchange for a fat paycheck from Saudi Arabia.
if you ever feel like a fuckup, just think you will never in your life fuck up as badly as david cameron, the prime minister of the united kingdom, whose political gamble in calling this referendum has completely backfired and britain has not only voted to leave the eu but it might also cause scotland and northern ireland to break up from the union. so if you ever feel like a fuckup, just think of dave and how he, the prime minister of the united kingdom, has single-handedly put at risk the economic prosperity, political stability and unity of not only his own country but of the whole continent of europe just to remain in power, and that he had to resign knowing that this will be his legacy as prime minister
This is only the first oppressive move the conservatives hope to make, and we can only hope this is the worst it will get.
Just to clarify a few things
-Although the conservatives have a seat majority (51%), they only actually have 36% of the votes.
-There are protests taking place in London particularly around the houses of parliament and downing street against the conservatives, and the media is not really covering it
-Although the Human Rights Act is being abolished, they are planning on creating a new legislation called the British Bill of Rights. However the British Bill of Rights will not be exactly the same as the Human Rights Act, it is expected that a few of the laws will be lost or changed in the conversion. What is to be in the Bill of Rights is still to be decided
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.
