So the results are in from the first round of voting for the Tory leadership and according to my detailed in-depth analysis of the votes received…
we are all turbo-fucked.
It says a lot about the absolute fucking lunatic state of the Tories that I legit had to Google these MPs just to make sure they didn’t actually name their child Brexit.
Politics is kind of fucking crazy right now if you look at Westminster voting intention polling recently.
This is a very mixed bag in terms of ‘good thing’ or ‘bad thing’ opinions about it.
The good is that the Liberal Democrats are way up, that Tories are collapsing, that UKIP is dead, and to a lesser extent that Change UK are a total irrelevance.
The bad is that roughly one full quarter of the voting population are apparently willing to vote into Parliament members of a party that has no manifesto and absolutely no policy positions on anything that isn’t just complaining that Brexit hasn’t happened yet.
I may hate the Tories and be largely just sick of Labour in general but at least they actually have policies and ideas.
The Brexit Party is the height of pure anti-intellectualism in politics and it leading the polling is nothing short of fucking dangerous.
Rory Stewart’s real first name is Roderick…
Regardless of who the leader of the Conservative Party is or what happens with Brexit, the attacks on the working class, disabled, PoC, and most vulnerable in society will continue under a cruel Tory Government.
The country is more divided than ever. The Tories and Blairites fear a Labour Government under Jeremy Corbyn more than they do a rising far-right. Historically the ruling class will always vote to maintain their own interests even in the face of fascism. It’s why Tony Blair said he wouldn’t want to see a left-wing Labour government in power, even in the context of a Tory Government that’s led to the deaths of hundred of thousands of people.
That’s why we need to unite and finally vote the Tories out in a General Election.
