The 2015 UK Election Thread

Post by Silent Majority » 26 Mar 2015, 8:18pm

I've got a lot of sympathy for Labour voters desperately trying to convince themselves that there's anything even slightly inspiring or worthwhile around their man Miliband. I'm going to vote this year because I want to use the only avenue open to me to tell the Conservatives/Liberal Democrats to go fuck themselves, the shameless rich bastards/craven sycophants. So, like Boston in March, it's going to be a Green time in the Majority household. The Greens. Useless unelectable idiot hippies.

Back when I voted, I voted Green because they were the closest party to my own sympathies. Which is to say, they were the only ones who didn't define society in exclusively economic/capitalist terms, but rather human relationship to the biosphere. They were nowhere perfect in this, but just the fact that they broke from the economic-growth-is-everything paradigm put them well ahead of the others.

Meanwhile, vote Zombie Thatcher because why not the worst monster imaginable?
Endut! Hoch Hech!

It's reassuring how Britain and America have converged on the most milquetoast political arrangement possible. A sign of the deep affinity between our two polities.
