I am not sure why I feel this way but I do have a feeling that the June 8th election may well see Theresa May lose her overall Westminster majority. At the same time I think the SNP will lose several seats in Scotland.
This will make an already chaotic situation even worse as it will put Brexit negotiations and the second Scottish independence vote into areas of even more uncertainty.
Some commentators seem to think that the NHS can survive as a national asset. If the Tories get back at GE17 then the NHS will become a privatised milchcow for the USA Health industry. It’s already nearly there.
I don’t believe that the austerity policy is anything more than a convenient cloak for the real aims of reducing the role of the state to an absolute minimum to allow private profit to flourish and to turn the UK into a super tax haven. The ordinary Tory voter and Tory MP has been duped by the claims of balancing the books etc., into supporting this goal which only really benefits the uber rich and the power hungry such as Media barons like Murdoch.
I have not written anything for several weeks now as events have moved so fast that there has been no time to reflect. What is more, there is a deluge of comment out there which has highlighted every possible extreme for the future. However I cannot remain silent for ever so I have to find a way of commenting on individual events in slightly more than the 140 characters of Twitter.
