Now, here’s an idea… The country’s in a completely Brexit meltdown of a mess. Politicians have abandoned us (or at least, that’s what it feels like) so there’s no one at the helm guiding the boat to safer waters. Even when the politicians do get their act together, I can honestly say that none of them inspire me that much. There may well be some wonderful back benchers, like the late and great Jo Cox MP, but we never hear about those doing good work.
The conclusion I’ve reached is that we need a new party on the block. A working class women’s party (I’m including women on benefits who can’t work, like me, too) – thanks to Claire for that. I guess that makes the party the WCWP …. And yes I know that there is a WEP but they aren’t up to much. Very London centric and aimed at the middle classes, mores the pity.
As I started this, I get to be PM (until I’m ousted when everyone realises I need to nap every 2 hours!). I’d also appreciate it if I can be minister for crochet please.
A few positions have been filled already (not naming names or @ unless you want me to, happy to edit):
Secretary of State for DWP
Minister for agriculture and fishing
Minister for economic ingenuity
Hampstead liberal/Prosecco socialist
US ambassador for all things lovely inc whiskey, pizza and puppies
I’m never sure which is a minister or Secretary of State but I’m not sure it really matters.
Quite a few job opportunities out there, just @ me on Twitter or comment on this blog and I’ll add you.
End of VAWG
Minister for cats
Umm …. Just had a look online and there’s loads and I’m sure there are some we can invent whilst we are at it.
Now there’s just the simple task of a manifesto and I’m keeping positive that we can all agree on it *eeek*
Here are some ideas we can get our teeth into …
Ending VAWG is an obvious one
End poverty by taxing rich people
Female only safe spaces
Children and teens taught stuff like how to fix a dripping tap, arts and crafts, cooking lessons that are actually of some use in the real world. Then sex education focusing on respect, consent and empowerment.
I have to confess that I’m getting tired now and my brain isn’t working so this isn’t even the start of this. Feedback more than welcome.
Love, tea and hugs
