General Election Result 2017

So we are waking up this morning to a hung parliament – the result of yet another arrogant Tory MP playing games with our future in order to furnish their own personal political ends, and spectacularly losing their gamble…

What a bloody mess, I’m delighted she’s failed but am really angry to have been used as a pawn in her selfish scheme, just as with her predecessor. Politicians should be there to serve the people, not the people lead as lambs to the slaughter for the sole purpose of personal political gain.

Theresa May did not have to call a snap general election, just as David Cameron did not have to call a referendum on leaving the EU – as a population the British public are not pliable puppets to be played with in their political pantomime, and we should never have been treated as such.

Surely it’s got to be time now for serious political reform here in the UK,  a complete overhaul of our democratic process, removing the antiquated first past the post system and replacing it with something more modern, more representative, more truly inclusive, more egalitarian…

    We ask for a dog and we always seem to end up with a cat with a modification kit. Will they never learn!? If ever there was a time for proportional representation in the UK, it would be now!

      Absolutely, proportional representation has to be the best way forward – and thank you for making me smile at the idea of a cat with a modification kit – meowoof! 🙂

    We are happy for you, after the travesty we’ve been coping with over here. The drama continues to unfold in most unpredictable ways. I hope Corbyn can cobble together something. Is it true the queen urged May to resign?
