Laura Perrins: Lefties who can’t abide elections should try North Korea


Now we know what really annoys the lefties. Now we understand what keeps them wake at night, reaching for their comfort blankets and clutching their stuffed teddy: elections. In the wake of Theresa May calling a general election the lefties are losing their minds. It seems that democracy is just too hot for them to handle.

Take the BBC, who instantly fell in love with ‘voice of the people’ Brenda from Bristol, an elderly lady who was none too happy with another election.

Oh how they loved that 10 seconds of exacerbation – ‘oh no, not another one’ said Brenda. The BBC played it on a loop all the live-long day. They seemed to think this was the killer point against Theresa May, that Brenda does not fancy going to the polls again so soon. Well, if you don’t like elections people, you can pack your bags and head to North Korea and see how better things are there.

In the lefties’ worldview, elections are undemocratic and prime ministers who seek a mandate from the people are ‘dictators.’ On day one, Labour MP Chuka (I forget to take my valium this morning) Umunna called Theresa May a ‘disgrace’ for calling an election. It seems that if you have an election this can lead to ‘dictatorship’ according to Chuka.

So on planet Chuka, we can assume that Kim Jong what’s-his-face of North Korea is a veritable paragon of democratic virtue and having mass military parades complete with (fake) missiles should replace the ballot box.

Ultra leftie journalist Caitlin Moran, solemnly informs us that “All I can see on my timeline is people going. I have no-one I want to vote for in this election. There is no-one who represents me.” This tells us all we need to know about how representative these people are – people who just cannot handle democracy.

And it is not just the most obvious machinery of democracy they loathe – elections but other pillars, such as a free press, are a bit of a downer for the lefties. Once again a Daily Mail front page, ‘Crush the Saboteurs’, caused a Twitter meltdown, prompting comparisons with fascism.

I’ll tell you who are the real fascists here – the Liberal Fascists as described so aptly by Jonah Goldberg.

I’m not saying British lefties possess any animus towards people of different races or ethnicities etc, but I am saying they have issues with democracy. They do not like it when people disagree with them in a referendum. They cannot tolerate the ‘right-wing’ press and would quite like to control it given half the chance.

The liberal fascists like to paint those on the Right – even prime minsters who seek democratic mandates – as dictators and fascists. They should look in the mirror.
