Default Corbyn was right



They’ve voted to not protect the NHS from being owned and controlled by overseas influences, the NHS is on the table like we were all told it would be.

But Boris is fun though so who cares.

Beware of the deceit that is the only thing that comes out of Johnson's mouth.

A very dangerously deceitful politician indeed.

Ah, but he is fun because he hangs from ziplines, tells jokes and lies like normal people, that’s worth making him prime minister for, he’s fun!

But this is completely impossible because Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is exactly like us and a good old boy, he'd be fun down the pub and everything.

How can anyone look at the US healthcare system in 2020 especially and think "yeah this is a better model". I find it STAGGERING that every country in the world is not currently rethinking and restructuring healthcare with a boat-load of extra funding... they know fine well that this will not be the last pandemic or health crisis and they're still lurching towards a private/insurance model?

Corbyn is the reason Boris is in power. Corbyn is so disliked by the nation that he handed a landslide over, well done Corbyn

Nah, Tory voters are just gullible and easily led. You can't blame the opposition for the terrible choices the voters made, their stupidity is on them. They made a terrible choice, yet again, and we all have to live with it.

Boris is in power because the 90% of the mainstream media is run by right wing cocks who benefit with Boris in power so they ran the biggest political smear campaign in decades to ensure Boris won

We love left wing media sources

I don’t believe every thing I read, I don’t think this is true, mainstream media seems more in favour of left wing (aka BBC) to me

I think there are a few reasons. Yours is definitely one, but I think being a tory is also seen as aspirational. It's America, so not 100% relevant but polls over there as to why people vote republican reveal a ridiculous amount of people that think they're about to be rich at any minute. Being British, we don't generally have those levels of confidence, but I still think there's something there, and ours is based more around British exceptionalism and superiority complex, that the tories loathing of groups feeds into.

And of course the press most importantly. Decades of foreigners coming for your jobs, your benefits, your women, your rights, is all bound to have an effect. Propaganda rarely ever fails.

I think it's six of one tbh.

Corbyn had a lot of skeletons in his closet, and connections with questionable people. Whether or not this would affect how he'd run government, he made it really easy for the media to make him look incredibly unelectable.

Did they do so because a Tory government would benefit them more than a Corbyn-led one? Sure. But they took the straw that was there, and spun it into a golden result for Boris.

Dude, the tory party is funded by Russians, and you're back to Corbyn shared a stage with this guy once...

It's not 6 of 1.
