I woke up feeling so disoriented in the night, I was convinced Brenden and I were staying at an AirBNB and even felt like I had a memory of us arriving there. When I looked around in the darkness, I didn't recognise anything. Then I started thinking "Why would we be at an AirBNB in the middle of a lockdown? That's pretty strange." and I started spotting signs that we were actually at home in our own bed. :P

I meant to say "dish" to René but for some reason the word "pepper" came out of my mouth.

I got called a bigot for saying I don't think there should ever be another Tory Prime Minister.

I don't know about bigoted, but it's certainly a stupid off-hand remark.

I maybe should have phrased it as I don't want there to be another Tory Prime Minister because I'm personally very tired of them being in charge.

But still, gave me a chuckle that someone played the bigot card about it. Especially after seeing a lot of Tory voters around me spending the length of Corbyn's leadership of Labour happily declaring there'll never be another Labour Prime Minister.

Don't you find that's very much the thinking that has led to a failure on Labour's part to adequately contest the Conservatives? You spend all your time telling people that another Conservative Government would be a bad thing and almost no time at all trying to sell anyone on why a Labour Government would be a good thing?

I tend to hate both major parties in varying ways depending on current circumstances. I was no fan of Labour under Corbyn because it was about as competent as a bag of feral cats and know approximately shit all about Keir Starmer and have no way of knowing right now if his opposition is going to be more competent than Corbyn's was.

The only opinions about politics I get regularly exposed to are either "yay the Conservatives are going to be in charge forever because Labour will doom us all" or "the Conservatives are mass-murdering psychopaths and we need Jeremy Corbyn to be our lord and master" so I make no claims about being able to bring a balanced, nuanced take to any political discussion.

My point is less Labour Vs. Conservatives and more that politics has become uncivilised and based in negativity and fear.

More and more, the political discourse is “Don’t buy that, that’s stupid, buy this”. Where is falls down is that it thinks the “don’t buy that, that’s stupid” element is where the discussion should be. It’s not. The discussion should be in the “buy this”. You can’t sell a thing without making that thing the centre of attention and politics is all about trying to sell a thing.

Talk to me about the way things should be, not about what’s wrong with the way things are.

I mean obviously I can't argue that at all. It's entirely true. And it's why I find politics so incredibly depressing and sometimes I sorely wish I had the ability to just like flip a switch in my brain so I could be like most people I know and just actively not give a shit.

You'd be surprised! I used to get very worked up about matters political, I'd literally agonise over what I saw as clear mistakes being made by politicians etc. With time, you experience more and more of it and eventually, along the way, you start to feel less anxious and tense about it. You still care, you still have opinions, but they don't make the whole interest in politics quite as depressing.

Not to say that is everyones experience, ofcourse, but I would never have believed I could be laid back about politics.
