Vote Conservative, and you will be voting for a party which, under Margaret Thatcher, deregulated the banks to allow them to make obscene profits by gambling at our expense, culminating in the great crash of 2008; and which then proceeded to punish ordinary people through Austerity while giving away billions to their cronies, the very bankers who'd caused the crash.
You will be voting for a party supported by far-right billionaires who control most of our press, who have infiltrated the BBC, and who spread endless lies, hate, disinformation and fake news. People who see the world in terms of winners and losers. Them, the winners. Us, the losers.
Vote Conservative and you will be voting to sell the NHS (they say not, but they lie). And every child who lies crying on the floor of a failing hospital; every accident victim who dies screaming in pain because an ambulance couldn't get to them in time - or because they couldn't afford one; every cancer patient condemned to death because their condition wasn't picked up in time - will be on your head.
You will be voting for a Prime Minister who lies at every turn (even to the Queen), and who once gave the address of a potential victim to be beaten up. Quite simply, a criminal. Your kind of guy?
You will be voting for a Prime Minister who is, in all probability, a Russian asset - for why otherwise did he refuse to release the Russia Report?
Vote Tory, and you will likely be voting for the end of the United Kingdom. Three of the four nations of the UK voted against Brexit, or are now strongly for Remain in polls. You think they'll stick around in a Brexit UK dominated by Tory Little England? Think again. Brexit means the end of Britain as a nation, and England likely becoming a neglected US dependency, something like Puerto Rico.
You will be voting for a party that doesn't even want to discuss the climate emergency and the mass extinction that is now underway. You will vote, at best for Little England to fail dismally to take the chance it now has, to lead the world out of its greatest crisis. At worst, to destroy all hope of the future, for everybody.
Please, whatever you do on Thursday: all our sakes, for Britain's sake, for the humanity's sake: don't vote Tory.
