Looking at the polls to the general election amazes and shocks me, despite the Conservatives doing such of a terrible job on “governing the country” over the last five years there is still a chance they could win the election! In the last five years Britain has seen rioting, the rise of food bank, zero hour contracts, a war in Libya that led to Libya migrants being washed up at coastlines in Italy and Libya, internet censorship and MPs claiming £40 pound for breakfast and then telling us they could live on £53 per week (the amount of money a single person gets on Job Seekers Allowance.) Deals between media and the government that served the interest of both but not the people and unregulated bailed out banks continuing to pay huge bonuses. The Conservatives have lowered expectations of politicians and politics, there greed is shocking and disgusting and it matches their hypocrisy, double standards and ignorance almost perfectly. The newspapers claim they are speaking for “the people” but like the government the newspapers are biased, they like their tax breaks, they don’t want to lose them to some “left wing” government, when they say “Save Britain” they mean “Save us, from paying tax again.”
As pointed out by a member of the audience on the TV debate David Cameron tried so hard to avoid, the only thing the Conservative government seem to care about is “money, economic growth, profit” they have no humanity whatsoever, they care very little for the poor and weak and people that can not help but claim benefits are made feel like scroungers and lowlifes whereas well paid politicians live in obscene luxury pointing their fingers.
I am not saying “vote Labour” or “the Red Tories” as the Scottish correctly call them, I am just saying; How do a political party that represent 1% of the nation end up with over 30% of the vote? Propaganda as usual, the mainstream media is the voice of the corporations, the elite and the government.
But so far considering that cutting Britain’s deficit was the “main priority” of the Conservative party and fixing the economy was so essential it involved our government having to make “hard decisions” like cutting disability allowance, benefits and public services yet the economy is still far from fixed despite these drastic actions. Not every decision was a “hard decision” like the decision to cut the top rate of tax, the decision not to regulate banks and of course the easy decisions to not condemn Israel and to allow corporations to contribute almost no tax.
