This might not be the correct answer

As Murph (no relation) says:

Why is it that politics now apparently demands that vast numbers of people must not be represented by the two mainstream political parties?

The correct answer might be something more along the lines of, well, there aren’t vast numbers of people who think that way……

  1. I thought she was Mrs Spud or else Spud twittering under an assumed name. The insolent tone, extreme certainty, and general boneheadedness are surely indicators

  2. If one was ‘informed’, would one be ” pro-EU, pro-immigration, pro-education, pro-equality “?

    Or might one think differently on any or all of those issues? Especially as those who ARE in on it can never explain their rationale for any, save perhaps education provided they are in control of the curriculum and the quality is less important than the equality.

  3. I never understand why people don’t get this.

    Its not difficult.

    To the extent that you are represented in Parliament, this is what your local MP is for. In practice this doesn’t mean he/she/it has to agree with you or even attepmt to push forward your own preferences.

    Whatever the franchise is, that bit of it is simple enough to understand!

    And regarding her specific complaint, the one place that is stuffed full of EU loving liberals, is Parliament!!!!!! OK – Marxists is closer to what most MPs are, but the poor dears don’t really understand what that means!

    No-one who was truly informed about the consequences of automatic equality would be in favour of the mass poverty and idleness that this would create.

  5. I thought that was the view of the vast majority of the people in Parliament (especially when the Lords are taken into account). I’d like a party that was agin most of that.

  6. Why should English people vote for explicitly anti-English parties like Labour and the LibDems?

    I know, I know, the Cons are anti-English too but aren’t quite as obviously so as the other muppets…

  7. She obviously missed ‘Change UK’ which campaigned on precisely those lines and is now a historical footnote…

  8. Liberal – ban my enemies
    Informed – sources of information I disagree with are “fake news”
    Socially responsible – no fucking idea what she means by that. Vague, vapid signalling.
    Pro-EU – meh, last year’s news
    Pro-immigration – pro mass, unrestricted immigration
    Pro-education – lol, because everyone else is anti-education, right? Fucking meaningless, again
    Pro-equality – equality of what?

  9. No-one who was truly informed about the consequences of automatic equality would be in favour of the mass poverty and idleness that this would create.

    Unless they knew they would be in the thin, elite section of society and wanted it that way. Lot of it about.

  10. Well, we know that the vast majority of people spouting this stuff on Twatface would be serfs like us if they ever got what they seem to want. The Nomenklatura is a very small club with vicious entry qualifications. A bit like Thunderdome.

    Could someone please explain the political revulsion for representing liberal, informed, socially-responsible, pro-EU, pro-immigration, pro-education, pro-equality voters? Why has that become the ultimate challenge rather than the fucking least we should be able to expect?

    Oh, Little Missy…

    Well, it should be obvious… A very substantial number of voters have come to the conclusion that the above positions and their related policies work against their best interests. Policy is about revealed preferences in the marketplace of politics, not your fucking expectations.

  12. @Rob: Socially responsible means you must do exactly what I tell you to do, what what clothes you wear, what you eat, where you live, what standard of living you may have, how you may travel (if at all) and finally who you may shag.

  13. She sounds the sort of person needs hunting with dogs. Unless Steve’s lions aren’t busy with more more important business.

  14. So Much For Subtlety

    Could someone please explain the political revulsion for representing liberal, informed, socially-responsible, pro-EU, pro-immigration, pro-education, pro-equality voters?

    There are no parties standing on that platform. Obviously a problem for her. There are also no parties opposed to that platform in Parliament. Obviously a problem for us

    We elect people who promise one thing and then rule in a completely different way

  15. It’s often necessary to distinguish between shoo in and shoeing. Although, as this case shows, not always.
