My response to the 2017 local election results is that the likely consequences will be Grandma Nora starving & rotting in soiled sheets due to not enough local resources being allocated to providing decent social care.
As I write this, not all the local elections results are in (counting hasn’t even begun in Scotland), but it’s obvious the trend is the Tories have made substantial gains & I reckon this is either because peeps voting Tory have kidded themselves that despite all the Tory penny pitching they’ve actually got a heart so will in fact at least ensure provision for the elderly & disabled or because they actually don’t in fact give a shit about the elderly & disabled or they’re idiotic enough to vote against their own self interests.
What the fuck?!?!? You didn’t vote Labour because Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t wear a tie & has a beard! Hey morons you were supposed to be voting yesterday on which party can best manage delivery of local council services not on whether Jeremy Corbyn wears a tie or not & for the many the Tories aren’t the party best at managing delivery of local council services which benefit the many, so yeah I will call how many hundreds of thousands or millions of peeps who voted Tory….fucking idiots!
If you fed into the mainstream hype that yesterday was somehow a barometer for the upcoming general election & voted according then you are definitely idiot, the local elections have nothing to do with Brexit or whatever irrelevant issue the mainstream news media is giving coverage to, oh & by the way if you didn’t actually vote yesterday I have to ask do you actually care about your local community? If you didn’t vote yesterday because the local elections aren’t as sexy as a general election or for whatever other stupid reason then please don’t ever bitch to me about the state of your local streets or the lack of social services provision or any other local council services you’ve got an issue with.
At a local level your vote really counts & if you voted Tory or couldn’t be arsed to vote then its your local community which is now going to suffer & in particular Grandma Nora who’ll be left to rot in her own faeces!
