Sorry for being so negative but I believe now more than ever that the British population will cope with whatever f. up ends up in power. That's as positive as I can be about things politically right now. Everything else is debating around the edges imho. Carry on with that if you think it helps you get through this political experience.
I see your point of view, it's probably valid given the current disaster of Brexitneverland. But to draw an analogy, you must have had family members let you down, lie to you, some are clearly not as bad as others and you might give them a second chance. But surely someone who repeatedly takes every opportunity to decieve and lie to you, is that not someone you would have as little to do with as possible?
If we are talking about the lesser of two (or three) evils here, surely you would pick the one you perceive as less likely to lie to you, and screw you over? Personally I think that's how this election is shaping up. Who can you trust? Who might do you more harm, long term?
Almost everyone has had the same issue in all facets of life. Who can you trust? And who should you frankly avoid, and deny them any credibility. Credibility, not anti-whatever, Brexit, the NHS or anything for that matter is going to sway the final vote. It boils down to credibility.
It's either a proven liar, habitual, and supported by people of the same low character, or a long serving politician who has, to my knowledge, no real dirt, nor record of being anything other than honest (in as far as any of us can be) with the British public.
It will come down to that. Credibility. And that's a universal experience that everyone has had in their lives. Who do you trust? To say that one is as bad as the other is clearly wrong.
One is disproportionately more un-credible than the other.
