Why I Am Not Voting #Conservative And You Shouldn’t Either… #nastyparty

Hey everyone!

Soo… I went to the other side of town this week and I was really shocked at what I saw. I had no idea that there was so much depravation in my area. I live next door to people who have multiple Range Rovers and trailers for their horses. I just assumed that everywhere else in town was like that. I know there is a school where I live and it’s not very good but it perplexed me as to why, considering it’s such a “nice” area.
Well, turns out that close to the city centre, where I live, is nice and everywhere else is deprived. It’s really shocking the disparity between the have’s and the have not’s. It simply isn’t good enough. I just don’t know what to say. The council has done a very good job of hiding the poverty of the people. I always wondered why whenever local people dropped me home they would say “oh your area is nice” and I’m thinking to myself, isn’t your’s?

I have decided to vote for someone who will do something about the disenfranchised in my community and I encourage others to do the same. The Conservatives are no good, they have mishandled Brexit, made cuts to vital public services such as Adult Social Care and Special Educational Needs. I used to work with children and young adults with Special Needs e.g. autism, downs syndrome etc. you know what the Conservatives did? They cut funding for extra support for those students, which cut jobs like mine, I wasn’t made redundant but I am sure others were.

To cover their own backs the Conservative government then changed the parameters that qualify a student for extra support, so the students who got their funding cut no longer fitted the criteria that qualifies them for extra support. So they moved the goal posts. Only a fraction qualified to fit the fraction of the support available due to cuts. This meant that the Conservative government was then able to say that every child with Special Needs who qualified for extra support got it. Reminds me of this picture someone sent me on WhatsApp:

It was a nasty thing to do and I was so upset that I had to leave children who I knew needed help and I just was not allowed to help them. I remember one little girl with Special Needs told me that I was her best friend, I know I was her only friend and I couldn’t support her anymore, I didn’t have the heart to tell her she would never see me again. This is partly why I left Special Educational Needs assisting. Not enough pay and the Conservative government sucked nearly all the funding so I could hardly do my job or make the difference I wanted to make.

I don’t normally air transparent political views on my blog but I’ll admit it, I voted Conservative in the last General Election and I am not doing that again. We need to vote them out they are no good. I’m voting Green next election (I can’t bring myself to vote Labour till they sort out their Anti-Semetic issues).

  1. I just have zero respect for conservative ideology. I should seriously not have to explain to some people why it’s totally incorrect.

  2. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
