As we approach the upcoming election in the UK, let’s examine our choices. Over the past 40 years, we’ve seen strong degrees of negative leadership: initially vile and evil, then evil and vile scum, and more recently, incompetent vile evil scum. It’s hard to imagine worse politicians.

In this next election, the Labour Party under Keir Starmer, who is a known lier, is likely to win. From a progressive perspective, we hope that he’s still lying and not truly as incompetent and vile as he appears. The best option in the current political landscape is to hold our noses and vote for these lies, optimistically believing that his dishonesty might work in favour of positive change.

This is the only viable path within the framework of mainstream politics right now. Let’s vote for lies is not the best rallying cry, we can’t keep doing this mess.
