I am not an election snob in the slightest, I’m just really fed up and tired of their bullsh*t. These politicians haven’t done enough to gain our respect, who are these characters on TV, in the newspapers and on radio spouting truck loads of toxic and confusing political rhetoric, accompanied by bogus, psuedo-factual statistics, and research studies interpreted in all manners, to make their claims seem much more substantial than they actually are.
I can’t take these people seriously, these aren’t guys I’d ever see strolling through Deptford high Street, let alone a Westfield shopping centre, how have they become so important all of a sudden?

My dilemma is this, why should I vote strategically if my vote warrants my say in this society, why is there no one to represent me and the interests of my community and folks like me, in my predicament?
Sometime soon these politicians will be held accountable for all their actions; the decisions they did or didn’t make on our behalf, the promises they swept under the carpet, the issues they curved and swerved. One day they will face a people united in their frustrations and angst, head secured on the frame of the guillotine, beneath the angled blade, looking into a crowded Parliament Square to chants of…
