Brits looking forward to voting any way but Tory

People leaping for joy with a polling station behind them

The Tories have been in power for nearly a decade. Since then, the country’s gone to hell in a golf cart. Everything is just worse now. But there is one thing to be thankful for. Every so often, we get to vote. And in today’s local elections, people seem ready to vote any way but Tory.

Fuck ‘em

One voter told us:

As a worker on a zero-hours contract, I want my local Tory councillors to know what precarious employment feels like. No, that’s a lie, actually. I want them to know what unemployment feels like. Then I want them to experience the nightmare of Universal Credit. And then I hope a tiger eats them.

That last one might be a bit unrealistic, but a girl can dream.

Another voter said:

I won’t be voting for those treacherous shits again!

The man told us this despite being a Tory councillor himself. When questioned on that, he replied:

Read on...

Exactly! That’s how I know what absolute, fucking weasels they are! They’re like a sack of drowning rats but without the shared goals.

Several other voters just did a little dance.

Fuck ‘em all

Of course, some people will vote Tory in the local elections. Even the rich and the selfish need their bins picking up.

    1. Never mind the Tories. The critical test is whether in the face of the most incompetent government in history, Jeremy Corbyn has convinced the voters that Labour is the answer to the country’s problems. Presumably the flip side to your article is that Labour has a hugely successful performance.

      1. The JC mass movement this website constantly bangs the drum about looks like the delusion those outside the Corbyn bubble know it to be.

        Where is the reporting on the local elections? I remember some joke of an article on here on the day of the People’s Vote March justifying JC’s absence from London that day as he was focused on issues that matter by launching Morecambe’s local election campaign 300 miles away. Fat lot of good that seems to have done.

    2. I am looking at the council election results. Yes the Tories have had a drubbing, but people are not turning to Labour, they have lost seats as well. The lib dems have won over 300. Those should have been Labour seats. Brexit is what is on peoples minds, and people won’t vote for indecision. Labour needs to commit to a second referendum. They will loose very few votes but would gain far more.
      I had such high hopes for JC but he has fudged brexit, and will never win until he promises a second referendum.
