Unsure whether to vote? Or who to vote for?

Still a bit undecided about whether to vote today and who to vote for?

    Thank you very much David ! You’ve confused me even more now.

    I’m afraid the Brexit Party are the ni**er in the woodpile. Being more likely to take votes from the Tories, rather than Labour, they could let Corbyn become PM by default.

    It tells me why I should not vote for Labour, but I’m less clear about voting Tory and I made a donation to their campaign. Do I really want a PM that puts a phone in his pocket and walks into a fridge? I want a PM with balls and a vision, like Thatcher and Boris does not come close.

    The Telegraph summed this election up today, it is about “Capitalism vs Marxism. The people vs officialdom.” but I still do not know how to vote. I reject all the nonsense about a climate crisis, I want to leave the EU completely, I don’t want the Tory version of regulated capitalism controlled by global businesses making it worse than nationalisation, I want free market capitalism and I want to see the NHS privatised.

    For a fortnight in 2003 I worked as a property manager, for a company that had a contract with HM Government, to house asylum seekers /refugees. (That’s asylum seekers /refugees caused by Tony Blair’s illegal war in Iraq) . I was responsible for 20 properties in a Welsh city. Properties leased to my employer by private landlords. They had to be of an approved standard and all were equipped with brand a new cooker, fridge freezer, washing machine et al. They all had a new television, vacuum cleaner and so on. Everything paid for by the government, or rather you and I, through our income tax. In the meantime, I saw British people sleeping on the streets, or in sub standard accommodation. The sick and elderly going without etc. What on earth were our political elite thinking of? Why did Tony Blair and Gordon Brown allow this to happen? I would be present when bus loads of foreign incomers arrived, and I’d have to take them to their new homes and show them how to collect their benefits from the local post office and where the local supermarket was. Some of them were bewildered by the appliances available to them, and didn’t know how to use them. The majority spoke little or no English and I had to use Language Line over the phone to communicate with them. It involved long hours and in the end I got fed up and resigned, finding an alternative job. Most of those incomers were from the Middle East or the Indian subcontinent. So far as I know, few people knew that the government, a Labour government, were doing this. Why import thousands and thousands of immigrants into our already overcrowded country?A country that now has a housing shortage and deprivation. Politicians of all colours, have screwed up, big time. They are all as bad as one another. They are all deceitful lying so and sos. It just so happens, one lot are more deceitful than the others. That’s Corbyn’s outfit. I wouldn’t vote for them in a month of Sundays. I deplore them beyond description.

    ‘A people who elect corrupt politicians, thieves, liars, and traitors are not victims but accomplices.’ – George Orwell.

    It sad reflection of democracy in this country, and has been going on for far too long, that we elect politicians who we dislike the least rather than those we trust and respect.
