We got a new goverment for reasons a bit too complex to write here after just six months.
The new prime minister is a 34-year old female from the social democratic party.
The treasurer is a 32-year old female from the centre party.
Interior minister is 34-year old female from the Green League.
Education minister is a 32-year old female from the Left Alliance.
There are two other older women in there as well. So apart from the Foreign Ministry key cabinet positions are held by young women. And our Foreign Minister is openly gay.
Wish this was the norm but I'll enjoy it while it lasts. The xenophobic Finns party is already leading the polls by a big margin (around 24% while no other party has even 20%) and formerly liberal National Coalition seems to be talking their way into a government with them. There's more than xenophobia behind their success like the fact they are the only alternative to many as they are still seen as different to other parties. Especially to those with conservative leanings (why does conservatism so often equate to xenophobia?).
I know we're all in our bubbles, including me, but I just cannot understand who are this 45% that are actively CHOOSING to have Boris Johnson as the Prime Minister? And where are they?
I know Corbyn is poison for some, I've had a couple saying that on doorsteps in Cardiff (mainly in uber-rich Llanishen), but they always say 'Can't vote for Boris either'.
I can't quite believe that there are FIFTY PERCENT more people in this country who want this gang of Dickensian villains and that corrupt, vile blonde haired sack of potatoes in charge of us than want the Labour Party. I could understand it with Theresa May cos there was this sense among my parents generation that she may be a charisma vacuum but 'she is a good, honest woman and has our best interests at heart'. But this fcuking fraud????
I woke up this morning, saw the polls, and felt completely crushed. Faith in humanity destroyed. But the more I think about it, the more I simply do not believe that the polls are accurate.
No way. The pollsters haven't weighted correctly for young vote turnout, for tactical voting, for overall turnout.
It's going to be closer than 45/31, expect three days of the most frantic smearing and social media dark arts since November 2016 in the USA.
