I am always amazed at the level of ways in which the British electorate think.
Looking at the last election result where the electorate gave the Conservative Government an overall majority in the house of Commons made me realise that UK elections are not about the frail, homeless, unemployed, weak and vulnerable of society it is about selfishness.
How can the electorate ignore the fact that this government is anti-senior citizens, against the concept of the NHS, only interested in those that are already wealthy and do not need the resources of the government, leave me speechless?
When I look at the UK voters, I come to recognise that they are selfish people who only care about what they think they can get for themselves and there need to destroy the European Union by coming out of Europe.
The vast majority of 75-year-old in this country or poor pensioners already struggling to meet their everyday needs and now this heartless Conservative government want to put them in more poverty by paying television licence to the BBC for the crap they put out. How disgusting can this government get?
What was once a standard operation, you are 75 you are exempt from paying television licence. It now becomes a mean tested claptrap aimed at causing more distress to people who most have worked all their life and cannot even live out the rest of their life without governments like these Conservative heartless people trying to hasten them into their graves.
Expectations are high in 2020, but I believe that many of us are in for a great disappointment.
Firstly, the general election won by the Conservatives. Giving Boris Johnson not just an overall majority but an extra 80 so more MP’S and he can do what he like pass any laws he desires, and there is nothing to stop him, and that is not what democracy is all about.
My prediction for 2020 under a Conservative government is this. The decimation of the NHS, Welfare and benefit systems, more extended hospital wait, increase in the retirement age and many more people committing suicide because they are unable to cope under this government.
The electorate gave the Conservative a mandate, so they have to live with the consequences of their actions. The already rich will be a more prosperous small business will be devastated, and unemployment will rocket. There will be more homeless on our streets, and criminal activities will soar.
To be able to cope when the bad times come, you have to have faith in God and know that this turmoil is human-made and will not last. What you will see happen in this country is just a prediction of the Bible and the word of God.
The vast majority of the electorate does not understand the power they hold, in my opinion. Voters can determine their future if they are wise and recognise the enormous problems that we have in the United Kingdom.
Looking at facts rather than fiction, the NHS is one of the greatest assets that we have in the United Kingdom. Everyone is treated the same at the point where they need medical care. If the Conservative have their way, they would have an American system of health care where only the very rich can get the kind of medical healthcare they need. They have the resources to pay for their health care, we get health care irrespective of our ability to pay, because of our national insurance contribution.

The government is there to not only run a country effectively but can unite the country. When you have a racist government then, of course, there is going to be constant conflict within the nation. There are more impoverish electorate than there are wealthy voters. The power to determine the future is in your hands, take time to recognise that if you vote in a counterproductive government you have to live with that decision for five years and most will not make it through the five years.
Apart from the NHS, the Conservatives, in my opinion, have devastated the welfare system, and give over 500 million to private firms to withdraw benefit from people who needed the help. All of those people they turned down won their appeal, some, unfortunately, commit suicide because of the position they were placed in by the government and their crony companies.
People use this election to vote for a party that you know always put people; first, you may not like the leader of the party, but you know that your life will be much better under a government that is not Conservative, in my opinion.
The reason that Boris Johnson calls this election is to see if he can get a majority in the house of Parliament so that he can push through Brexit.
One of the things I find amazing about politicians is their ability to go to any lengths to deceive the voting public. And on many occasions, they succeed because as the most potent force in this world; we do not take the time to recognise when we are blind-sided.
The electorate has the power to decide our future and what we want from our politicians. Yet we fail on so many occasions to do just that. If you believe in social justice, the NHS, equal rights for everyone and a welfare system that caters for those in need, why would you cast your precious vote for a Conservative government?
When the independent wrote an article whereby it states that two private companies made 500 million pounds assessing fitness to work, it demonstrates the levels at which the Conservative government is disgraceful.

In my opinion, Capitalism is, geared at those who already have so much. Not the needs of the massive, people get on board and choose a government that is for the people.
I cannot understand why we are having yet another General Election when we should be having another referendum vote on leaving the EU.
You can rest assured that the politicians are once again going to spread their propaganda and no one is going, to tell the truth about the real reason that some people are so desperate to leave the European Union. We will never be, explained what the consequences to the electorate would be and the long term effect that it will have on the United Kingdom.
Or people memory that short that they forget it was the Conservatives that brought in bedroom tax, universal credit, destroyed our benefits system and left the NHS so short of funds that they are struggling to treat patients.
When will people understand to the Conservatives is all about the money they do not give a damn about how their policies have left millions in poverty.
Although I do not believe that we should have another General Election, it will give the country the ability to get rid of this Ad HocTory government and it the electorate fails to do so they will only have themselves to blame. When this country will go to the dogs, and only the well-to-do will survive.
It stands to reason that when you achieve anything by lies, cheatings and innuendoes then sooner rather than later the whole thing will come tumbling down.
When the citizen of the UK voted to leave the European Union they did so with deceptive information. Since the 2016 referendum to leave the EU there have been two Prime Ministers that resigned countless moves made to get an agreement with the EU all of which fail.
In my opinion, if the voters were told the truth about what the consequences would be if the UK leaves the European Union we would never find ourselves in such a disastrous situation.
The credibility of the information that was used to make 51% of the UK vote to leave was more than flawed. The electorate was duped, deceived and now the politicians are reaping the benefits of not being truthful to the voters.
Millions of people, especially young people have taken to the street of London to protest. And parliamentary vote have now made it clear that the Prime Minister will have to go back to the EU and asked for an extension.
It is the time that the Prime Minister recognises that the voters are no longer blindly going along with the 2016 referendum and if he wants a peaceful end to this Brexit fiasco then he must give the decision back to the electorate now.
Quite frankly, I doubt if anyone was surprised that he would win the Conservative election to become not only their leader but the PM.
There was a time in politics that integrity matters and the people who were running for particular office were squeaky clean, with dignity, integrity and above all, honesty.
In my opinion, anyone regardless of their background can put themselves forward to represent the country and its people. It also appears that the electorate is no longer concern who represents them or speaks on their behalf. It is a testimony of the grave depth of the immorality of the world.
Unfortunately, as its Prime Minister, we will have to wait and see what new and, fresh ideas Boris Johnson is going to present the country. – However, if his reputation is anything to follow. He was never adequate, in my opinion, when he was the Mayor of London or Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.
What his position on the chaos of Brexit is going to be, is something we once again have to wait and see. In the meantime, the country is in the worst state since the second world war and it, under the Conservative government is not going to get any better.
According to a media report, a man fell off a plane that came from Kenya into the garden of a Clapham resident.
I cannot understand what level of poverty or other factors would allow someone to stow away on a plane that flies at least 30 thousand feet high. What is happening into our world that causes people such despair that they would rather risk their lives to come to what they assume is a country that can offer them a better way of life.
It was reported, by the police that a bag, water and food was found in the landing gear area of the plane when it landed and inspection was carried out. For the resident that was sunbathing when the body dropped into his garden, this must leave him so frighten and scare. It leaves many of us who live in the Clapham area that are in flight path a little concern that something like this to happen to anyone of us and we have to be vigilant when we are using our gardens.

A proposal by the BBC, according to media reports, to scrap or means test TV licence for the over 75’s is one of the most disgrace decision, in my opinion, an organisation with more money than sense could do this to our senior citizen in our community.
Now the question must be what the heck is the BBC thinking? There are many senior citizens over the age of 75 that their only means of connection to the world is through their televisions and some idiotic people who can afford much more than a TV Licence decides to the deprive our elderly of their TV licence privileges.
The mere fact that over 500,000 signed their signature opposing this idiotic decision is a testament that most decent people within our society believe that our protection. There is no doubt that some of the people who the BBC want to take away their free television licence are people who fought in a war to give these insensitive people the privilege to make these pathetic decisions.
To know that over 3.7 million senior citizens will be affected by this decision should it come in force in 2020 is frightening and an absolute disgrace. The BBC ought to be ashamed of themselves how archaic. But we should not be surprised because this is how capitalism works. Squeeze the already poor so that the rich can get richer.
Following the resignation of Theresa May as Conservative party leader and Prime Minister, the race is on to see who will be her successor.
According to media reports, the current front runner is Boris Johnson, who has 114 Tory members of parliament backing him. Although the race is in its early stages, several people believe that he will be successful in not just become the conservative leader but the next UK Prime Minister.
However there are several pitfalls before him, firstly if he becomes PM will he be calling a general election so that he can get a mandate from the British people. He accused Gordon Brown in 2007 of ruling the country by default and not the will of the people so will he honour his words and go to the country.
According to a media report, the Chair of the Conservative Muslim accused Boris Johnson of targeting the Muslin community so that he can acquire votes. He is also threating to leave the party should Boris become Prime Minister.
Boris Johnson as not state yet whether he will be calling a general election, so the comments he made back in 2007 about Gordon Brown taking over Downing Street, and it amounts to a ‘palace coup’ and that without him winning an election tantamount to massive fraud. It is something that we cannot call him a hypocrite for yet because we still do not know what his plans are.
In my opinion, any individual that takes over the role of Prime Minister by default must go to the electorate to get a mandate to govern and if Boris wins his party support and become PM and fail to do so would make him the biggest hypocrite of all time.
