Upon first hearing the general election results, I was speechless, how can so many people in Britain vote a man that attacks freedom of speech, the poor, the disabled, pays for Facebook likes and enforces austerity tactics on to the poor while giving tax breaks to the rich? One word, fear! Voters are terrified it may cost them something. As if that is not bad enough the mainstream media spend all their time and effort on spreading fear, cementing that belief in to the minds of their audience. Newspapers like The Sun, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph and the Daily Star were at time shockingly blatant and one sided, we have come the expect it Britain, we all know its happening the Leveson inquiry exposed it but failed to stop it. I believe its time for an inquiry into government inquiries and why government inquiries always fail to change anything.
The actions of the media throughout the whole of the election was disgusting and something should be done to prevent the media being so ridiculously one sided while anti government activists and bloggers are censored from social media and accused of selling fear.
Having said that it is up to the voters to actually look at the damage that these right winged extreme governments do when we hand the power, they damage families, welfare, the health service and even the future of our children. How can you vote a man that did his best to avoid TV debates? a man that governed us through the rise of foodbank? a political party that can’t stand the NHS? they cut disability allowance but not Banker Bonuses despite the fact it is the banks that caused the financial meltdown that left them needed a bail out not the disabled and not the poor.
UKIP gain one seat 0.2% of seats DESPITE winning 12.6% of the vote, I am no UKIP fan but the voting system is obviously massively flawed to allow that. David Cameron has a small majority, smaller than that of John Major and look what happened to him.
The trouble is, I fear the British media would not allow any real change to take place but I also believe the British media is losing control slowly but surely, until they lose control of the mind of the masses, right winged extremist governments that implement unjust laws, tax the poor the feed the rich and greed and give tax breaks to multinational corporations will carry on governing us and the corporate media will carry on telling you “everything is OK.”
