I am at a loss as to how to accurately express how absolutely flattened I am by the dreadful result. I cannot quite believe that David Cameron not only won, but won with a majority.
I fear greatly what is to come, not for people like Jon and I but for those already struggling, those with disabilities, those on benefits, those who fall through the cracks.... more food banks? more sanctions? more suicides? - I think there is probably only one thing to do from here and that is to not only sign petitions and donate to good causes but to join and become a member of the party in opposition and take part pro-actively, for our local situation is no better with the conservatives remaining in power within Calderdale.
