The General Election 2017 Part 1 is over and its a hung parliament. I haven’t changed my mind about Theresa May, in fact she has diminished in my estimation further than she was at the beginning. The Tories have shown themselves to be the utter sleazebags and used car salesmen they’ve always been. They may have better accents than the rest of us, but they are the absolute dregs of what passes for human beings. I feel unclean even thinking about them.
The best thing about this election has been watching Jeremy Corbyn grow in stature and confidence as the election campaign went on. I admit I’ve had doubts in the past as to whether his style would bear any real substance but no, he’s proved me wrong and I like what I see. I just hope the real Labour party can hold it together long enough for when the next election is called, which won’t be long now, and people realise that it’s not just Theresa May who can’t deliver, but the whole Tory Party machine just hasn’t got what it takes without dragging everyone down to their level of incompetence.
The media have also been very even handed in handling their questions and haven’t allowed either party to get away with easy questions. It was refreshing to see them getting people to question MPs rather than just presenters. My money is on another general election being called in October/November. The present lot of Tories who’ve kept their jobs for now haven’t got the necessary negotiating skills to ensure we leave with any goodwill from Europe, which will be needed to negotiate any trade deals that may need to be agreed. They come from privileged backgrounds and as a result feel the world owes them. It doesn’t. This is a very interesting time to be alive. We need not just a change of faces at the top, we need a change in the way of working that benefits as many people as possible because we’re the ones who make things happen. Rich people are only interested in filling their pockets with our hard earned money.
I’ve always said there is a reason why politicians want us all to work really hard, it so we won’t notice they’re picking our pockets while we do so.
