The only reason to vote Conservative today would be to keep Corbyn out. While that is a necessary aim, it is nowhere near good enough. I don’t want a choice of negatives: a slow decline into overbearing state control, high taxation and dreary micro-regulation of our lives policed by an army of po-faced PC snoops that we are all forced to pay for is barely preferable to a quick one.
The crazy thing is that there really is a far better alternative, but no political party with any chance of delivering it is actually offering it. Are we a nation that is really so effete and ashamed to stand up for itself? Or are we doomed to allow these political pygmies to drag us down into every form of bankruptcy known to man?
