Vaguely what I think about the new Tory Government in the UK

So that’s that. David Cameron is set for another term in Number 10. Is that what I wanted? No, not really. It’s been an interesting election though – probably because it’s my first – and I’ve been proud to be a part of it. Even though the results aren’t quite what I was hoping for, I’m glad I voted because it’s just one of those things that makes no sense if you don’t do it. Why would you not want to have a say in how your country is run? A lot of people argue that it’s because their vote doesn’t count, but surely if all those people who don’t vote do, wouldn’t that make a significant difference?

Now we can look forward to exciting things like a European Referendum, welfare cuts and to everyone’s horror, the decline of the NHS. Woo.

I won’t go on. I don’t know enough about politics to justify going off on one but I will say that I’ll be upset if people start complaining for who they voted for when all the information was right there in the first place before we put a cross in the box yesterday.
