a total job was done on democracy, tying in nationalism, patriotism and ignorance. You had a press that castigated one leader for just about every single flaw they could find, where there wasn’t a flaw they made them up. You had another leader with a whole host of negative personality traits and skeletons in his closet that were just ignored and there was no scrutinisation.
You had a party who had no apparent manifesto other than “get it done” and again the ideological nature of their past policy and actions completely ignored.
a progressive manifesto which at its core in social values like protecting the NHS was ignored by the media. A sensible compromise on Brexit was ignored or simply misconstrued.
Labour were blamed for the lack of Brexit progress when it was the Conservative Party who had voted against it. Again it cannot be stated enough, the Conservatives were against Brexit, Johnson was against Brexit, but in the most cynical of power grabs this massively important factor is forgotten.
Then you have the total fabrication of facts with the Facebook campaigns and the like, thousands of fact checks proved the Conservatives were lying, Labour not at all.
You have the undermining within the party and I believe that this is exceptionally cynical and needs investigating.
we have a whole democratic process open to abuse and it is getting worse. There are no standards, there are no penalties for corrupting, in fact at the moment the opposite is true, you are rewarded for the despicable and lack of morality.
The rich and influential are getting richer, the standard of living for the rest of us is going down. Education standards down, life expectancy down, crime up, national and individual debt up etc etc.
it’s an absolute crying shame what the Conservatives have done in a decade and it’s going to get worse because a number of voters could not see through the lies and bull****.
anyone who voted Conservative after voting Labour in the past (a party that actually tries to represent them) just to get Brexit done should hang their heads in shame. They were gullible but worse, they were unsympathetic class traitors.
Not to mention that all of this began with a fraudulent referendum built on electoral and data breaches.
