Boris wins, because he's the lesser of two evils...?
Cholera or the plague
That was kind of the question, if you have to believe average Joe in London, Brighton, Sheffield of Newcastle upon Tyne. "Boris Johnson is not the best politician for the UK, but at least he's more capable than Jeremy Corbyn." That is a sentence I heard a lot the last week from British people saying this in front of the camera. That is like choosing between a beating or a whipping, or between cholera and the plague.

Sad really, that politics and voting has become a choice between the lesser of two evils. And I am not pointing at either Corbyn nor Johnson. It is just a fact that politicians and politics have fell down the drain. And are not considered to be wise and eloquent people anymore that have the best intentions with the people. To the contrary! These days, people don't vote anymore, or they vote against the other. Not because they have belief in a certain candidate...
That kind of evolution has happened before in the past, and is usually a sign that revolution is near. And with near, I don't mean a matter of weeks, but it is a sign that people are getting fed up with a certain system and eventually will turn their backs to this system. Current social media has a great influence in the actions of people. Whether they realise it or not, but people do what propaganda on the internet tells them to do. For now, the establishment has been able to keep people choosing what they want, but eventually the forces of the people will become stronger on the internet too...
At least, I hope.
Have a great weekend,
