I hate the Tories, yes I know millions do, but sadly too many will still stand side by side with them to defend their union.
The Tories are the scum of the earth. In my lifetime I have had to put up with Thatcher, Major, Blair, Cameron/Clegg and Cameron, all Tories.
How can anyone in their right mind vote for these people? How can anyone walk into a voting booth and put their X next to a Tory Candidates name, or any candidate of the red and yellow kind who believe what they believe, I just don’t get it.
What is it that other people don’t see. You have to know that when you vote for a Tory they are going to cut the NHS, they are going to demonize the poor, they are going to slash and burn services, they are going to lie and cheat. In Scotland they are going to cut the block grant to force the Scottish Government to slash and burn like they do in England, Wales and Northern Ireland forced to cut too. The Tories can always be counted on to look after their own; they can always be counted on to cut taxes for the rich while getting the poorest to pay for the cut. How can anyone fall for Hug a Huskie, Better Together? Protecting Jobs? How can anyone allow a political party to change the narrative to hate the poor, to blame the poor for being poor? How can food banks be so common place that they don’t shock anymore? How can it be ok to celebrate the disgusting wealth of the few and the Royals when over a million people rely on food banks every year?
How it is that 1,360,919 Scots still voted for Unionist Parties in last years General Election, 434,097 for the Tories. Have we really lost all sense of reality? Have we lost all sense of shame? I know you have to vote for what you believe in, I understand that, but is it really real that 1,360,919 voters in Scotland are willing to accept anything thrown at them. Virtually every promise made during the referendum has been broken, or about to be broken, from pensions, protecting the disabled, public sector jobs, shipbuilding, steel, defense jobs, shit even the so called most powerfully devolved parliament in the world (can one unionist name one out with the British Isles with less power than Holyrood) has never happened yet people are still voting for the Tories or for the poodles who did their dirty work in Better Together.
No doubt some people will read this post and just scoff, typical Nat (even though I’m not), typical UK hater, typical jealous Yesser, deluded, brainwashed. I have chats with people on social media, from a variety of parties, but they don’t see what I see. They refuse to see the facts right before their eyes or are so blinded by their hatred of the SNP and YES that they will use anything to justify their misplaced faith in a system that cares little for them or the people around them.
For too many of us things are falling apart at the seams, services that we rely on are going or are gone, pensions that we could get at 65 years old are now beyond many of us as who just won’t live long enough to see them. People are being sanctioned for not being in work and then are being sanctioned for being in work, fuck sake what is that about. The Tories and their Tory poodles just don’t care about the many, they don’t care about the hungry. Outside of London can be the sewer of the world but they don’t care because they refuse to see it and they fucking won’t ever experience it.
What will it take for the unionists to wake up and see what I see, see what many see. Is your hatred of the idea of a better Scotland, an independent Scotland, a fairer Scotland so great that you will accept anything thrown at you. I left the Liberal Democrats because the few at the top are facilitators of misery in Scotland, they are Tories through and through, and you know what! I am no longer willing to quiet my voice anymore.
I hate the Tories, I hate their poodles and I hate everything they stand for, they stand for division, they stand for poverty, they stand for privilege and if you stand with them then you are as big a part of the problem.
