Ok, I’m annoyed now, I voted to Leave the EU. I’m heartly sick and tired of being called ‘racist ‘ ‘stupid ‘ and numerous other derogatory terms. I’m neither, or none of these.
Did I call those who voted a Tory Government in, who persistently target and disenfranchise those, like me, who are in receipt of benefits due ill health names! ..No is the answer. Did I call them selfish, culturally prejudiced against the poorest in society, did I call them Stupid, racist or bigoted ,oppressive for voting thusly? No, but do you know what, I could easily have done so. The Tory government they voted in have persistently targeted and bullied, yes, bullied , and invalidated those like me.
Amongst those who voted Tory will there not have been those who are racist, stupid ( wealth doesn’t guarantee intellect ) prejudiced? There will have been.
Will not there have been those who are uneducated that voted for this wretched government, yes, there will have been.
A vote was given. People voted for various reasons. Yes, there will have been some who voted ‘Leave ‘ who are racist, there will have been those who are ‘stupid ‘ who voted ( but who are we to call anyone stupid ) but, come on, look to yourselves and to the bigger picture. Stop the name calling now. It’s not helpful. It’s not a playground, it’s real life, with real people.
