I see Garba’ge brought out the race/immigration card today. Says the election shouid be about that. Country is on its fucking knees. And set to get lower, or not recovering at least, to 2010 levels. The worst cuts to the NHS since its inception. Social Care, where literally thousands of of our most vulnerable people will have support cut, including overnight staff member. Left on their own, some for the first time in years. Schools neglected, in fact everything people need.

Of course we need to sort out a sustainable level of immigration, but we have bigger fish to wish we could afford. The Extreme Right are on the March, As they always do in times of economic and social tensions. They have the answer, it’s somebody’s fault and they know who. That’s how it starts and we all know how it ends.

Fuck you Nigel and all who sail in you. ****. You’ve made a career out of being a smiley face of Fascism.

Let’s see what areas vote his cunts in.

I away to watch the French. Oh and Stammers still a ****. In case anybody forgot.

Can’t have that.
Seems not as cut and dried as your perceptions.

Worth remembering A Clockwork Orange was written in 1962. That’s not a coincidence, there’s a reason it resonated.

Have a read, a sample size of 1000, almost an 8 out of 10 cats prefer Whiskas scenario. The people in their late 50s are talking about carrying a pen knife and stating that they wouldn’t use it. Big difference between that an a machete or the so called zombie knives that are prevalent now.

You also need to take account the willingness to report incidents and how the police categorise them. Watch the programmes where they are dealing with knife crimes in London, kids being stabbed and not willing to say who did it.

There is nuance in all of this, but growing up in the 80s and it may be that I lived a sheltered life, whilst there were fights, kids knew when to stop and someone pulling a knife was unheard of.
Realistically, if the Tories are going to implode, Reform will fill the vacuum. Any expectation that we will suddenly become left wing as a nation is fanciful. I therefore think Reform are here to stay.

Labour isn't a left-wing party now though is it?

It's essentially the UK equivalent of Germany's grand coalition.

Realistically the Tories are likely to moderate and try to win people back around in 10 years time when people grow bored of the Labour party's "excesses".

Once the older voting block that makes up Reform's base dies off and the younger generations see the benefits of Labour achieving just some of their progressive policies then the appeal of the monkey-hanging party will be stunted.

If Reform UK does fill the vacuum they are likely to start arguing within themselves. Farage has controlled the party by not having a democratic structure. That's not sustainable when they occupy parliament in numbers, even less so if they were official opposition.
