Every election cycle I hope and pray that people will have stopped voting for the Tory party, and every time I am disappointed as the inevitable happens. Not that I like many of the other parties, but no party has so blatantly lied and filled its own pockets like the Tory party.
The saddest thing is their most die-hard voters are the ones who have been the most fucked sideways.
I don't even blame the Tory politicians anymore, they dont vote themselves into power. Other people vote them in.
Imagine you invite somebody around your house, and they steal some spare change. You invite them round the next day, and they steal some milk from the fridge. You invite them round the next day, and they lift your toaster.
Suppose you kept inviting them round, because they said some nice things about your house and how they'd really look after you. Suppose they kept on stealing. Suppose your entire estate slowly withers away while they get richer. Past a certain point, it becomes your fault - and solely your moral responsibility - for your own ruin.
Play silly games and get silly prizes. I just wish the collateral damage didn't include the demographic makeup of the country, the value of the £, the price of housing/heating/food/electricity etc. because all of those things affect me even though I'm actually clever enough to tell when a Tory politician is lying (hint - its when their lips start moving).
