An Open Letter To The Tory Party

Dear Tory party

I appreciate that many among you are excellent people, I have close friends and affiliations with you and though I have a great mistrust of the principles behind your party, I try to read your manifesto each time an election comes round to listen to what you have to say. Out of love and respect for my Conservative friends, I try to understand your points of view.

Right now, all I can say is that you are not worthy of the good people who vote for you.

Some of my Conservative friends have pointed to the old adage that it is better to have evil rulers than incompetent ones. How does it feel to have given the country a government who are both? Well done, well done for offering the country the most disgusting shower of venal idiots ever to disgrace Whitehall; that's quite an achievement after the 80s. Here is my first question to you: Is this really the best you can do? With all their mendacity, their stupidity and above all their utter dedication to money for themselves and their buddies, are these really the best you could offer us?

Are you proud of Stephanie killing herself because she couldn't pay the Bedroom Tax? (http://news.sky.com/story/1089813/bedroom-tax-blamed-for-womans-suicide)
Are you proud of David Cameron talking about permanent austerity while surrounded by wealth at the Lord Mayor's banquet?(http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/nov/13/david-cameron-austerity-public-sector-cuts)
And while we're staring at that blingtastic picture, are you proud of the rise of foodbanks?(http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24536817)
Are you proud of ATOS' decision that Princess Meena was fit for work?(http://beforeitsnews.com/eu/2013/04/atos-tell-woman-with-mental-age-of-3-yrs-to-get-a-job-not-satire-please-share-2516398.html)
Are you proud of those governmental figures who push for fracking because they have shares in fracking companies? (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/revealed-fracking-industry-bosses-at-heart-of-coalition-8707589.html)
Are you proud of Defra buying TB infected meat and feeding it to NHS patients and schoolchildren?

Are you proud of Eric Pickles giving the go-ahead to destroy ancient woodland, when we only have 2% of such woodland left?(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/hands-off-our-land/10176522/Hands-off-our-land-Oaken-Wood-decision-suggests-no-green-space-is-safe.html)
Are you proud of Eric Pickles for answering a person's angry concerns about child abuse, with the words 'Adjust your medication?'(http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/eric-pickles-tells-survivor-of-alleged-child-abuse-adjust-your-medication-8846503.html)
Are you proud of Owen Paterson championing the badger cull despite the vast amount of scientific evidence - including the government's own trials - calling it inefficient and cruel? (http://www.theguardian.com/theobserver/2012/oct/14/letters-observer?guni=Article:in%20body%20link)
Are you proud that it cost over £4000 per dead badger? (http://www.farmingmonthly.co.uk/livestock/animal-health/8039-7m-badger-cull-shock-figures-reveal-dead-badger-cost-4000/)
Shall I go on? Because there's lots more...

Here's the thing; if you agree with all of the above: if your idea of the green and pleasant land is a landscape of fivers; if you think the poor and the sick are the ones squandering the nation's wealth, if mental illness is a matter of derision to you... most of all, if you seriously believe that you can survive toxic air and polluted water as long as you have cash in your pocket...then you are the ones blackening the reputations of voters who trusted you, honest people who aren't pantomime villains.

And you're the ones who need to adjust your medication.
