I've been very quiet the last few days - absolutely gutted that the Conservatives won an overall majority in the recent General Election.
I despise the vast majority of modern politicians and political parties and all they represent.
I also loathe both our electoral and parliamentary processes and procedures and the system they prop up and sustain.
And I have a particular dislike and disgust for the Conservative Party who I believe are especially vindictive and cruel.
But I've got to say I'm sick to death of listening and reading all the whining and moaning.
We all know the system.
We all know the biased nature of the press and MSM.
Now if anyone is surprised at the outcome of the election they must have been either living under a rock for the last few months, incredibly naïve or
simply blinded by their own adherence to political dogma.
The FACT is that the Conservatives polled more votes than anyone else.
Now the whole campaign was a complete farce as far as I can tell - all parties relied on populist policies with very little of substance and even very
little difference between the 'main' parties.
Yet many, and I'll even go as far to say most, people who voted Conservative did so for valid reasons.
They got their point of view across better than anyone else, that wasn't very hard, and the other parties failed to both debunk Tory 'promises' and
disprove the aspersions that the Tories cast about the others parties.
And to say the majority who voted for them are either idiots or degenerates is quite frankly ridiculous and I'm afraid says more about you than it
Judging by those people who I know who voted Conservative I'd say the vast majority of them have more or less the same desires and hopes to see a
fair, just, prosperous and compassionate society....they just disagree about how best to go about achieving that.
For those of us who didn't vote Tory the challenge is to now to oppose those policies we feel are particularly divisive etc and to try change the
system that seeks to maintain the status quo above the best interests of the British people for one that offers increased representation of the
electorates wishes above those of a select elite.
Stop whining and start doing.
