Not trying to put words in your mouth, but are you subtly suggesting that voting should be taken away from the great unwashed because they canít work things out for themselves and are too stupid or unconcerned to even try?

Iím not a voter - never really have been.

Whatís worse, politics before social media when everyone was kept in the dark or politics now where social media and whatever version of the truth parties put out just gets mingled and nobody can separate truth from fiction.
That's dead easy - you don't need to separate truth from fiction because it's all lies now. As a nation, we have witnessed the death of standards in public life, cheered it on and given it a resounding majority.

Let's face it, Johnson could say "bollocks to the Queen" and marry Megan Markle and still not enough people would care
The "let the bodies pile high in their thousands" comment was the equivalent of Trump's "I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and they'd still love me and vote for me". People know Johnson's a liar, they know he's corrupt, they know he's happy to watch them and their families die if it suits him, they just don't give a fuck. Mainly because they think it will be someone else's families that suffer.

For people like me who have no real strong allegiance as such the last few years watching it has been horrible. I can't be fucked to vote anymore if I am honest. Social media and places like this thread show that people will not be converted from their beliefs and I get that.

What I find now more than ever is the constant shouting down and people are so condescending when you tell them why you are voting one way or why you don't like something. Politics is fucked in this country and I find myself not liking any of them or anyone who just shouts about them at me

I'm almost as annoyed at them as I am the tories.

Quite an interesting thread from Dom's predecessor looking at the wider electoral and structural problems facing Labour https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1390549774986788864.html

Labour have proper fucked this haven't they? Still at least they can now spend the next six months with the left blaming the centrists and the centrists blaming the left which is what they're all happiest doing. Ineffectual arseholes

I'm almost as annoyed at them as I am the tories.

Just an FYI, and I look forward to the 4000 word essay response to this, but you have been severely 'wooshed' here. It's not a big deal, it's a joke from football forums past so hardly expected anyone to get it, but your reaction (although toned down for you) is not really warranted.

Sincerely,

Enjoyer of lighthearted silly (and chavvy) banter.
Please No Ghey sh1t

Thanks for all the appreciative and heart-warming comments, TEF. The Reg Smeeton Eulogy has now been visited over 325 times. More to come in the next month or so about Reg.

I enjoyed reading both pieces. Where did Reg go to school? When his real-life name was disclosed, it rang a distant bell from my junior school days!
