The general consensus seems to be that people liked what Labour had to say, but they don't trust Jeremy Corbyn.
I'm a lifelong Labour supporter, but I'm not a communist, so I don't trust him, either.
As for Boris getting Brexit done. Phooey. There ain't no such thing.
Just more and more arguing for years and years, while the rich get richer and the poor get stuffed.
I was so hoping for a hung Parliament. It really was the best I could hope for.
Course, it ain't over yet, and there could be a massive turnaround, but I don't see it.
What I fear is that you underestimate the resolve of some for their lust to lead. (Johnson)
If the Tories get the majority then there is no way forward for them besides shuving Brexit down the throats of everyone in the country. You are not their supporter although there might be more of you compared to them. Farange made sure of this. I do not think that there is a possibility of compromise in this regard anymore. Brexit not being "done" is a relative term. People who voted for the Tories do not consider any damage done to the country as big enough to postpone or rethink Brexit basically.
Then on the other hand there is the split majority of the downtrodden like you so to speak. (Not using this in a derogatory meaning. It is just the reality of things right now.) You can be labour or anti-Brexit or both or whatever. There is also the SNP who are fiercly against this. Long story short, nothing good will happen in the couple of years. Worst case scenario is that Scotland leaves the UK so the Union gets smaller/dissolved.
Anyways, we will see Johnsons qualities tested in the next years. If he fails then it is going to be catastrophic.
I do not think that any nation is hopeless to change; however, I think that some nations do require a lot more effort than others to become changed. - Verv
