As much as I could never bring myself to vote Conservative, I can't help feeling that posts like the OP don't help the current situation at all.
Everyone should have the right to vote without fear of being ridiculed or blamed for the failings of the party they voted for.
I just think this type of divisive mindset is part of the problem, when really any dialogue and opinion should be more constructive and positive. In the end, division just plays into the hands of people like BJ, because it's what their whole strategy is based upon and its counter-democratic.
This isn't meant to be a criticism of the OP, so please don't take it that way, but surely we can be more constructive about stuff that in reality affects us all, without resorting to trying to shame people who were just doing what they thought was right?
no criticism or offence taken.
What I was rather hamfistedly trying to address was more around" actions having consequences" and just what does it take these days for people to examine their own actions and admit they were mistaken, even though they acted with the best intentions at the time.
Can people be self appraising and self critical or will some just keep piling on because they dont/cant admit they were misled or mistaken?
plus, I like poking fun at shy Tories, as much as I like poking fun at those on the left who cant get behind a party candidate who wasnt at the miners strike, and thereby gifting power to the Tories.
