voting politics

Guys, I realise most of you are US based and don’t realise this, but the next General Election in the UK will decide what we as a country want out of our system. 

We literally have the most left wing manifesto out of the labour party we’ve seen in years - they’re finally not just a centrist, almost policy for policy but slightly more left version of the tories. 

However, right-wing media is attempting to destroy our left wing leader. They’re smearing him left, right and centre. Hopelessly trying to make him out to be an ‘incapable leader’, as though ANY of the leaders we’ve had in the past few decades were the most respectable of people. 

Our right wing leader is essentially Cruella De Vil down to wanting to lift the ban on fox hunting. 

Can we talk about this more as a site?

You all blogged for Trump vs Clinton. Now can we pay attention to the rise of the right wing else where? Our left wing is promising nationalisation, free education and taxing the rich to fill our gaps but people still want to vote Tory despite them looking to privatise our health care, rip it to shreds first by giving their friends jobs in management and toss our education system up in the air. All because 1) Not enough people are voting and 2) the right wing is playing dirty tricks. 

What happens in our General Election decides how the UK interacts with Trump. Currently, Theresa is a loyal lap dog without a back bone to speak of. Be aware that politics in other countries exists.

i still hate each and every one of ya’ll who voted for trump….so far that orange juice extract has done nothing but diminish the rights of immigrants, muslims, women, disabled people, trans people, and now with this new bullshit healthcare bill, poor people. fuck ya’ll for choosing your privilege over the lives of millions of people and i’m still gonna say fuck ya’ll for feeling bad about it 

Please get out and vote on Thursday. Theresa May and the Tories are counting on you to just not be bothered and stay home instead. No vote is a vote for the Tories in this election. It’s a vote for cuts to schools and hospitals and a cut to the taxes of the wealthiest people in society while the poor, sick and disabled are left to freeze and starve. No vote is a vote to take food away from children to give tax breaks to the rich.

Prove them wrong on Thursday. Make them regret their arrogance. Do something radical and VOTE.
