I’m seeing a lot of advice, online, suggesting that people should vote for the Green Party, UKIP (wtf?), or pretty much any of the smaller parties, rather than Labour or Conservative. Or LibDems for that matter.
To do that would bring down upon us a disaster of truly epic proportions.
Why? Simple, Tory voters are loyal to the party even if they loathe its leader (in the 70s and 80s I knew many Tory’s who despised Thatcher but would never have contemplated voting for another party), and if potential Labour voters scatter their votes among a flotilla of smaller parties and independents, then you can be absolutely certain of only one result.
That, of course, would be the return of Cameron and his sharp-suited Nazis with a working majority, possibly a massive one, and if you think the sick and disabled have it bad now, you sure as hell ain’t seen nothing yet. As I said in an earlier post (and have been speculating about for over a year now, having seen nothing to change my mind):-
“…if Cameron gets a majority in 2015 (and the assumption that, after this budget, he won’t is utterly facile), there is the possibility of the sick and disabled being stripped of their benefits and housed in workhouses and camps, fed, clothed, medicated, but that’s all. And even that much might be marginal, if some genius decides our drugs cost too much.
Why? Because, long-term, it will be vastly cheaper than paying benefits, and a very large proportion of the populace will have no difficulty getting right alongside that when they’re told it’s all the country can afford and that, ultimately, it represents the greatest good for the greatest number.”(end)
While I have grave reservations about Labour under Miliband, I have hopes that they’ll empty out the useless bugger in time to present the country with a valid alternative in 2015. Even if they don’t I would still vote Labour. I simply cannot afford not to.
Having Cameron in power with a working majority would be a major disaster for the sick, the disabled, the unemployed and the poor of this country on a level that, right now, would be almost beyond comprehension for most people.
The seeds, though, have been sown – as should be obvious to those with the will to see – and the sick and disabled are already 21st century untermenschen – sub-humans that this government, in the pursuance of Cameron’s Pogrom, is happy to leave to die, while continuing to persecute those still living – the ethos of Nazi Germany writ increasingly large with every day that passes.
That is what squandering your vote is likely to get you. Is that what you want?
None of us want to be sick and disabled, and effectively punishing us for it is – which is actually what this government is doing – is positively obscene.
While some of you out there might think it’s none of your concern, being neither sick nor disabled, bear in mind that a chance encounter with a wandering bacterium, or virus, or an accident, stroke, or heart problem, could see you join our ranks at the drop of a hat.
It is your concern – it’s everybody’s, because even if you never succumb, it’s very good odds that a member of your family won’t be so lucky.
