The UK’s next Prime Minister is now guaranteed to be either Theresa May or Andrea Leadsom but PLEASE do not celebrate this. Having either of these women as PM is not a win for feminism or any sort of equality. They are both scumbags. Both women are members of the Conservative Party, aka the party for rich white racists in the south of England. May hates immigrants (she wants to ban all non-EU immigrants who earn less than £35000 and has threatened to oust all settled EU immigrants following Brexit) and is a hard-line authoritarian on law & order. Leadsom is against same-sex marriage, has promised to repeal the fox hunting ban, and dreams of following in her hero’s footsteps - Margaret Thatcher. 

They will push to cut state benefits for the most needy and vulnerable people in Britain. They will target the disabled, the impoverished, the refugees, the immigrants, the elderly, the low-income households. They will reward big business and their rich friends. This is not GIRL POWER.   

In the aftermath of the election, which is a devastating result for every humane person in the UK, there is only one thing for us to do. 

HOLD THIS GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE.

The people of the UK should be angry. Angry that our healthcare is being taken away, angry that the arts will be disregarded, angry that poor, disabled and vulnerable people will be tossed aside to die. I only wish I was being melodramatic. Real people with real lives like yours and mine will suffer and even die because of the Tories. 

The Conservative party do not care about you or me. All they care about is their piles and piles of money, looking after their interests and nobody else’s. Please don’t be fooled into thinking the Tories care about the people that voted for them. They do not. All the proof you need is in the devastation that they have caused us in the past five years. Now nobody is here to hold them back, nobody to stop or reason with them and they will push and push and push until the rich have everything and we have NOTHING.

Unless you are the wealthy minority (in which case, congratulations) you and the people you care about are going to suffer because of them. Now is the time to take action. The only option is to unify, to stand up against this oppressive, inhumane and elitist government and show them that we are angry. Peaceful protest, petitions, anything that will help to stop them, do it. The only way we can end this is to show them that our voting system is corrupt and that they are not representative of us. 

I am afraid to raise my children in this country, and you should be too. We must act now in order to safeguard our future.

HOLD THIS GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE.

HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WILL SUFFER.

HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WILL DIE.

HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR FUTURE.
