Oh stop with the drama queen stuff eh.
The people voted, you don't like the result. Tough luck.

If you can't beat them then join them, huh?. But the thing is you can't be one of them. They are the elite rich. The one percenters. I know this is about England's elections and I don't want to derail the thread. There are way too many similarities.
The biggest farce in the U.S.A. is that we have the electoral college (The Grand Filter). They decide if your vote should go this way or that way. Specially picked individuals take your block of votes and then they decide how to throw the dice.
I see too many parallels with what is going on in England and in the U.S.A. politics.

Drama queen?

Get real buddy first you don't like complaints cos someone hasn't voted now you don't like complaints from people whose vote didn't win it.



Don't act like you wouldn't have complained had it gone the other way.


Tough luck indeed for single mothers using food banks.


I'll stick with empathy if I bump into them...
I don't think "tough luck" is what they'll want to hear.

Well done Britain...


Bra-----Vo!!!




Well labour should have offered a EU referendom then.

Milliband and labour failed the public, they failed by not giving the people a voice.

Just curious like


The opposite of all those things.

Nevertheless I felt it was worthless anyways.

None of them impressed me in the final week of the campaign.

Couldn't care less about EU though that vote will only go one way.

What do food banks have to do with this, a social issue surley not a political one?

LoL well I voted Labour but our constituency got lumped with a Tory who voted to invade Syria.
So I think my complaints are valid.

Well most of us wanted it NOW.

With the eurozone crumbling and merkal and junker wanting more power we need to adress the issue.


You might not think so but the thousands of voters ukip and the torys stole say otherwise.


Its your arogant attitude of ignoreing the demand for a referendom that bled votes from labour.

You and labour made your own mess with that atitude.

We need to create more well paid full time jobs.

Assumption Much?


Yes. I would have based my response on the specific thoughts and comments that OP made when he explained why he posted... except he didn't make any.

Sometimes you have to work with the information you're given. In this case, a member based in the UK complaining about the failure of democracy, two days after a general election.

"Assumption" doesn't always make it wrong or inappropriate. Occam's razor swings heavily in my favour in this case. If OP means something different, there's nothing to stop him explaining it.

Edited to add: Never mind, I saw your later reply on the matter!

Dunno it seems that I keep hearing and seeing 49.5% wanted in "now" (two years in fact)...


Last time I checked 49.5 isn't a majority of 100 but 50.5 is.


Not gonna argue about Europe anyways we got two years for that.

You could always move to a labour heavy constituancy?

That way you could be happy that the guy's you voted for invaded Iraq but that was ages ago now so I'm sure thats fine

Still let the people have there say!


Labour lost many votes ignoring that fact.

Learn from it so you dont make that mistake next time.

The difference is that it's gone 12 on a saturday night and the worst that can happen is a mod may remove a post

Again, stop being a drama queen.
I ask why the 'single parents' you speak of are using food banks?
Income Support/JSA, Child benefit, Child tax credit, Housing benefit, and Council tax benefit have not been cut. I have many single parent friends on benefits and none of them are using food-banks, most are living quite comfortably enough on the reasonably generous UK benefits by making sensible choices about how they spend their money.
I say it again. Drama queen.
