Suck it up. You voted for them. No one made you.

Everyone is entitled to have a moan, but seriously, WHY WHY WHY did you ever vote tory thinking they'd got your back?!?!

Because labour had done so fucking much for them the past 20-30+ years they had held those seats

And to make it clearer, I don't mean loyal tory voters, you are beyond help, I mean traditional Labour voters who thought Boris was their man.

I agree with you OP, I don’t understand why working class people though this government would ever look out for them.

Are they wearing an “I voted Tory badge”? Do they now have a blue aura? How do you know who voted for them?

Alexandernevermind Tue 27-Oct-20 23:01:45

It's called a democracy. We as the people voted for them so they are accountable to us. By causing a fuss we can change policy. I hate the "you voted so you don't get to complain" attitude.

Blimey, no wonder there's a North /South divide.

shellshock77 Tue 27-Oct-20 23:02:39

We all know why they voted.

Various news reports, threatening tories that they'll loose the red vote they won this time round, like they give a toss

It's a total shit show.

Livelovebehappy Tue 27-Oct-20 23:03:35

Which news program was this? Northerners don’t moan - we make decisions and stick by them. Now southerners on the other hand.......

Alexandernevermind Tue 27-Oct-20 23:03:49

Also, are Tory voters from the south allowed to moan?

DrDavidBanner Tue 27-Oct-20 23:06:01

I think its time to move on Jeremy.

Tillygetsit Tue 27-Oct-20 23:06:46

What about us Midlanders? You know, the ones you think are Northern and the North think are Southerners?

Miljea Tue 27-Oct-20 23:08:02

I read the OP and, like many, thought 'this won't go well' 😂-

But, I understand the sentiment.

I cannot fathom why any traditional Labour voter in a Thatcher decimated, chronically under-invested, poorly educated, austerity riven north of England town would imagine in their wildest dreams that any Tory would have their interests at heart.

How much history do you need?

But they have far less to moan about!

I live in softy-southern Hampshire. I haven't voted Tory for 40 years. Because I take one look at them, their policies, their track-record and go 'Nah'. And live among the privilege 'being Tory' brings.

Didn't realise everyone up North was working class. hmm

This. It’s like poor Americans voting for trump. I saw one family being interviewed - lived in a shack, no medical care or dentist, one of their children with a serious health condition and they could not pay for decent care or medications she needed. Their closet neighbour was about 5km away but the dad voted trump because he “didn’t want no terrorists moving in next door”. It’s staggering and like turkeys voting for Xmas.
