Apparently, calling a general election is the same thing as a coup. Only in the la la land of the Guardian could a bloody seizure of power by force be likened to calling an election where the demos get to vote. Of course, they realise that the demos will, likely as not, resoundingly reject the hard left agenda of the Corbynista Labour party. However, for the past year, these very same people have been whining like a jet engine about an unelected prime minister without a mandate – never mind that we do not elect prime ministers, for ours is a parliamentary democracy. Now, that “unelected” prime minister has decided to call an election in order to obtain a mandate and that is somehow undemocratic?
Jesus! No wonder sane, rational people look upon the Guardianista with utter contempt.
Remember 1931, the last Tory attempt to expel Labour from power for a generation. Labour won 28% of the vote, but just 52 seats. Don’t let it happen again.
Oh, I dunno… Sounds just dandy to me. I don’t like the Tories; authoritarian scumbags, they are, but compared to Labour, they are paragons of virtue. The LibDems aren’t even worth a mention…
