This Brexit mess is beyond confusing, now Labour are pushing for a General Election

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/ ... n-20748253
Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgon declared "we believe we're going to win it" as he proclaimed: "We want to get Boris Johnson out by Christmas!"
Only downside is if Labour don't win a majority or can't work a coalition with the Lib Dems and other parties it's 5 years of Boris :nono:

If every person who told you your vote actually mattered voted for the same person as you, your vote would still be worthless at overcoming all the people who voted Donald Trump/Boris Johnson/Scott Morrison into office...
DEMOCRACY!

FUCK VOTING!!
I actually think the terrorists have the right idea... At least most of them are prepared to DIE for their cause, not just say VOTING IS IMPORTANT!!!!
because, NO, it fucking isn't. Sorry....
Unless you vote for the winner, then your vote was LITERALLY and FIGURATIVELY a COMPLETE WASTE of fucking time!
