Is it wrong of me to think that only the middle class virtue signalers and disillusioned poor people are the ones to vote for Labour? I’m sorry if that was rude to say, I don’t mean it in a horrible way, and I am not trying to put people down.
I still do not know who to vote for, and the more I look up each party, the more and more confused I am.
To be truthful, I don’t trust any of them not to make things any more worse than they are now. It’s just so hard not to just go for Labour, since my MP is pretty good, and I’ve spoken to her a couple of times about my mental health hub.
Most of all I do not trust myself in voting for the right person, the simple fact of the matter is, I know I will punish myself either way. So, does one go with their gut feeling, or does one go with their mind?
All I know is that none of them really cares about mental health problems, they will all still cut funding to Mental Health Trusts one-way or the other, they all will.
I know that sounds horrible to say and I feel awful for saying this. However In politics, no one keeps their promises, not even the ones who have the best intentions.
Take for instance Corbyn, how do I know he isn’t going to turn the UK into a Communist Utopia? Are we going to have 1984? Are we going to be dictated to as to what to say, think, and act? This scares the living hell out of me; I think it comes from being sexually abused and bullied so unable to speak up about what was happening.
Then there is the Tories and Theresa May, How do I know she isn’t going to stiff my parents out of their pensions? My dad is already retired, and we just about cope on his money. My mum is worried that Theresa is going to up the retirement age even further, and my mum would like to stop working, I think working as hard as she does makes her mental health worse.
Thirdly, there are the Lib Dems, who from what I can tell cannot make up their mind as to what they want to do. Their Election advert is long and pointless, to the point where I want to turn it over because it is boring and time consuming without saying anything at all.
UKIP aren’t very popular in my area, might be because I live in London and we have a ton of immigrants and refugees here. I don’t go out enough into the world to notice much, though when I do go out, they’ve been pretty cool. Nigel the French yogurt as I like to call him scares me. Though he brought up about Brexit, which I did not vote because again I knew I would be beating myself up the whole time. He hasn’t really done anything, and his policies are pretty much for people who hate people. I hate people, but this is the kind of hate where you feel the need to tell people, not the kind where you want to hide away. However, both could be the same thing if you think about.
In addition, feminists and social justice warriors would kill you if they found out you did, and there would be the same kind of protests and fights that are going on right now in America over Trump.
So who should I vote for?
The answer is not UKIP and Liberal Democrats at least.
