Party Vice Chairman
favours the death penalty
whipping up hatred
- further evidence, as if it were needed, that our Conservative Government is drifting even further to the right. The appointment of the loud-mouthed “30p” Lee Anderson as party Vice Chairman demonstrates that there is nothing left in the party. All the Europhiles have left or been ousted, the moderates have been silenced, and the primary qualification for getting into the Cabinet is a rabid Brexit stance.
- I remain in a constant state of revulsion and despair. What am I supposed to tell my children? They are being brought up in a political landscape where it is normal to lie, to deceive, to disrespect, to blame the poorest and the vulnerable and to be strong instead of compassionate. I still hate what they have done to my country, my home.
- Anyone who says “well, what’s the alternative” or “I’m not sure Keir Starmer…” is either a Tory or has never got over Jeremy Corbyn’s unpopularity (for whatever reason) and hence unelectability.
- I think I might need to write some nice nature haiku!
