UTTERLY DELUDED: BBCQT audience member thinks Tory austerity is a conspiracy theory : Evolve Politics

Many of us are still reeling today from news that Theresa May has slithered her way back into Downing Street: by forging an alliance with an oppressive far-right party of ill-repute across the Irish Sea. And despite the fact Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour dramatically surpassed expectation, quite literally overturning the single majority government the Tories already had, the media and various Tory mouthpieces are already hard at work trying to portray his campaign as a miserable failure.

Tories crow they won the battle. And that they did. But only just, and only by a disgusting, deplorable, insidious ruse. (The kind of minor ‘detail’ that rarely matters to Conservatives.) But really, considering the £3.88m of lies, abuse, propaganda and media slur thrown at Corbyn since the snap election announcement alone, and the fact only a few weeks ago we were all expected to believe he was quite literally the world’s ‘biggest loser’ – what Corbyn’s actually achieved is frankly, little short of a miracle.

The questions remains

The question still burns away at many of us though. How did so many people in this country still vote for such an ethically-barren party?

Sadly, the answer is often clear. They’re living on another planet. (Or hail from one.)

Such as this one particularly warped gentlemen on BBC Question Time this evening. When he finally got his little ‘pitch’ for the camera, he came out with some of the most ludicrous statements I’ve ever ever heard on one of these shows. And that’s really saying something: they often seem to showcase lunatics on day release from Jeremy Kyle’s dungeon. But wow, these comments really took the biscuit:

    It seems, that last night, they over-compensated, by bringing in as many right-wing nut jobs as they could lay their hands on.

  2. I didn’t see QT, but did they blame that nasty man Corbyn for spoiling all their plans ?.

    I’m surprised the left haven’t made a poster (and getting one over the Tories) of Corbyn shaking hands with and talking to IRA members.

    With the caption…IF THIS MAN IS A TERRORIST SYMPATHISER.

    And further down the same poster, a picture of the Queen shaking hands with and talking to IRA members.

    By the same token, this woman must be a Terrorist sympathiser.

    THEY CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.

    1. I remember going to see Phil Collins in concert, in the late 80’s, when this song was released. I honestly think, this was the point in my life, when I developed a social conscience. Until then, I hadn’t realised the homelessness problem, or even knew of Shelter, and the work they did,
