Re: Since the Lib-Dems dropped off the face of the Earth
While I agree with you, as a labour voter in 2017, and 2019.
I got the chance to vote for decency, better pay for poor people, scrapping of trident, free broadband, a national social care service.
In 1997 I got to vote for the minimum wage.
Labour under Starmer doesn't have my vote. I'll not vote before I vote for a Tory, so Starmer is out.
Yes, I'm partial, but we the people cannot afford the conservative party to loot us collectively.
Churchill's tories voted 21 times against the creation of the NHS.
Thatcher gave us the housing crisis.
Gove ruined education (ask teachers), Hancock is selling the NHS off.
There is a difference between a shit ranty beardy weirdo, and being actually engaged in trying to make life worse for everyone without staggering levels of personal wealth.
I'm well paid enough to be prime Tory territory, But I exist entirely because of socialist policy.
My education, my business, my very birth are all in some convoluted way down to the NHS, state funding, or assistance.
A little extra cash seems a small price to try and pay down some of the debt I incurred on the way.
We need legal taxed drugs, foreign policy that says "Chop people up in embassy = no arms sales for you." An acceptance that magic crypto doesn't exist. Free childcare, nationalized infrastructure paid for at the cheap rates the country can borrow at.
The tories don't care about anyone but the donors, the libdems are tories as near as makes no difference. So Labour is it as far as chance of change.
Starmer doesn't offer anything, might as well vote for full fat tory.
