And another thing…

We’re all talking about how to vote tactically to get the Tories out…

If we had an actual representative democracy, you know a real democracy and not this illusion of choice we’ve all been accepting for the past however many years – we wouldn’t need to even consider voting for a party we don’t really like to make sure a party we like even less doesn’t win that seat.

It’s madness, pure madness.

I don’t want to be all “wake up sheeple” – that’s patronising… and we don’t need to wake up, we all know that our voting system is rigged, the problem is we accept it – we accept as inevitable our own lack of power – like the first past the post system is just the natural order of things and cannot be changed…

Why?

Why do we let ourselves feel so powerless?
