I wonder if some posters on here go on the same way in real life.
"Would sir like one of our sauces with the steak?"
"Don't talk to me about bloody sauces, that Margaret Thatcher was the worst excuse for a human being ever, and every member of the Conservative cabinet should have been drowned at birth."
"Shall I take that as 'no thank you'?"
I think you might be surprised by how diverse our political profiles might be. A better question is perhaps, who would you vote for and why?
I was raised as a good little conservative voter, went to public school (day pupil) and on to University. At Uni I met some really good friends who exposed me to the fact that not everyone was like me, and that people and lifestyles that I had been previously critical of were not in fact awful, or linked to crime etc. I still continued to vote conservative though, feeling generally that I liked their policies. I'm 47 now, but haven't voted Tory since I voted for Cameron in 2010, so 5 times I voted Tory and then no more...
I have changed, obviously. As we get older we tend to get more middle of the road. I still don't want to pay a huge amount of income tax, or abolish private schools, but I do think we should help people who are worse off, and pursue beneficial relationships with other countries. I don't see the point in trying to tax the super rich because they will just disappear to a country where they don't pay the tax. I do see the point in taxing tech giants though. I have no fondness for unions or labour infighting.
The problem is that we have a viciously populist and right wing conservative party and a completely useless opposition labour party. The middle of the road voter has been abandoned. The Lib Dems have no prospect of forming a government unless it is in coalition. Labour continually bleat on that they will not entertain a coalition, and it allows the Tories to win. The best result at the moment for middle of the road Britain would be a liberal coalition. An arrangement to stop the Labour front benches from getting too silly but offering a better, more compassionate and less corrupt government than the Tories offer.
Until we get rid of the corrupt and morally bankrupt Tories and get back some of the David Amess Tories, I think we will continue to suffer as a country. What I'd really like is proper proportional representation. It's just wrong that someone like Raab can lose a 16,000 majority, still be an MP and 30,000 votes count for nothing.
So - who do I and the millions like me vote for?
