Letter to Boris and my local (Tory) MP


Recommended Posts

Bornagain

Hi, any (constructive) comments on this before I press send would be gratefully received. I appreciate that neither of them will read it, but it makes me feel better to have my say....

 

Boris,

I have always voted Tory. That is a mistake I will not be making again.
 
Your government has demonstrated a level of incompetence and cowardice that I would simply not have believed possible 12 long months ago.
 
I can accept that in March & early April Covid-19 was something unknown and that it might have been prudent to take a very cautious approach - however since late Spring it has been clear that this disease is only a danger to the ill, the fat and the old; yet your government has managed to convince a large part of the population that Covid-19 is just one step down from Ebola on the lethality scale. 
 
You should have devoted a substantial element of your time to something positive and enlightened the population about the dangers of being fat and unfit - something that you should be well aware of - this would have saved a lot of lives.
 
It is clear from the data published every Tuesday by the ONS that whilst the country did indeed have a lot of additional deaths in Spring 2020 - perhaps 10-12K per week - this has not been the case in this Autumn/Winter outbreak - indeed we appear to be having circa 1500 additional deaths per week. Surely even somebody with your poor grasp of the facts can see that your current extreme authoritarian actions are not justified by what is in effect - a very bad flu season.
 
The people you are attempting to protect are (in general) a population of geriatrics who have enjoyed the best that the post war boom has to offer; the people that are suffering are the young whose lifestyle and employment chances you are intent on destroying; to make matters worse it is the young who will have to do the paying.
 
The big question is why are you overreacting as you are ?
 
I can only assume that you are frightened of taking rational steps and are intent on simply copying what other nations are doing. 
 
I have had the view - in particular because of your Brexit approach - that you see yourself as a modern day Churchill - perhaps you should ask yourself what would Winston have done ?   I am pretty certain that he would not have run scared and done what was popular - he would have stood upto the threat, educated the public, protected the weak and advised the rest of the public to "keep calm and carry on"
 
When all the hysteria has calmed down, and the great investigation is carried out, it will become clear that issuing law-by-decree based on political fear is not the best approach. Your legacy, or what is left of it, will be in tatters.
 
I am sure that you will argue that you have been merely following the science, however please consider this;-

If we had a food crisis of some description and we filled the posts on SAGE with vegetarians and vegans, can you imagine what the science would say ?

If we had a climate crisis of some description and we filled the posts on SAGE with CO2 worriers,  can you imagine what the science would say ?

If we had a banking crisis of some description and filled the posts on SAGE with bankers, can you imagine what the science would say ?

If we had a discrimination crisis of some description and we filled the posts on SAGE with a load of Diversity and Inclusion Specialists, can you imagine what the science would say ?

I am a self confessed tight wad, if we had a financial crisis and we filled the posts on SAGE with people like me can you imagine what the science would say ?

It is the governments job to listen to a broad spectrum of opinion and set policies based on a balanced view. The first option they should consider should be; do nothing. And if their are several options of approx equal worth, then do the cheapest and/or quickest. 

I cannot believe that the once great party of individual responsibility has turned into the cowardly shower that you are "leading"  and hence for the first time in my life I intend to engage in politics and at the next election will be actively campaigning against the Tory party - I assume that the lovely Mr Farrage will be establishing a movement aimed at kicking you out of power; and it seems likely that he will succeed.
 
So, in conclusion; you have financially ruined the country and the present and future well-being of millions of young people in order to protect Tory voting pensioners - who will largely be dead by the next election - and in doing so have given up all your principles and created an authoritarian granny state. You have now set the precedent -can you imagine what Kear Starmer will do when he holds the reigns of power ?
 
May you and your political legacy rot in hell.
 
Resign soon.
 
My name and address.

I am conscious of that, but I feel that I need to try and explain why I am so angry.....

Mr XYY would simply say "tory cunt" and whilst I agree, I need to give reasons why I think that.

TL;DR

The first half is relevant, but I’d suggest keep it short and concise.

Everything after “The big question is why are you overreacting as you are ?“ could be cut as it goes into too much of a rant and a bit off-topic.

Maybe a concluding paragraph instead off all that?

I'd send it in ....no need to shorten it.  Otherwise it will sound like..'Boris you're a fat twat'.

And send it to the papers etc

But he is.

If he had not been such a tubby fucker, then he probably would not have been so ill, and then perhaps the government response might have been less emotional.

On the names - Farage and Kier.

More broadly - if it's made you feel better, get it sent.

Do you have a conservative MP? Also worth a letter.

Suggestions:

4th paragraph - delete ‘something that you should be well aware of’ - I don’t think it helps to be personal.

You have 4 paragraphs that start ‘if we had...’ and the ‘I am a self confessed tight wad’.  I think you want three of these max, instead of 5.

In the paragraph that starts ‘it is the government's ...’, final sentence, ‘their’ should be ‘there’

‘Farage’ has just one ‘r’.

Should be ‘Kier’ rather than ‘Kear’.

Bottoms up or top down?  Could just ask, given what an increasing number already know, what possible coherent personal and party end game they could have planned.  They might appreciate the very basic strategic input!

Try:-

Dear Tory  MP,

Coronavirus only affects other people who I don't give a fuck about.

Somehow this makes you the cunt, not me.

The fat can do something about it. If they can't be arsed, then fuck them.

The ill and the old should be isolated. I am quite happy for the taxpayer to fund those that cannot help themselves.

Remember, the old and the ill are simply waiting for something to get them. Old peoples homes are merely waiting rooms for the crematoria.

The majority of these people have had their time. This is the stark reality that we tend to forget.

The only people really affected by Coronavirus are the young. And they are the poor fuckers that have to pay for it.

So, in effect, you are largely correct. And I am happy to admit it. But I really care about the young.

The “rules” ruin the lives of the vulnerable without seeming to do much to protect them.

It’s not a trade off of the almost certain saving some lives against the possible destruction of the fabric of our society. It’s the almost certain destruction of the fabric of our society for a possibility of saving some few much, much less enjoyable lives.

It killed 2 people i was very good friends, one was a best bud for a long time. Done many stupid things in his life before he allowed CV19 to get into his mind, i'm still thinking maybe he'll be allowed one more shot at doing something daft.

Well it was not exactly covid killing them, but locking him up after putting him out of work, away from his mates etc..

 We can safely say in this case and the many just like it that those calling for lockdown have blood on their hands.

If you really want people to take notice of your letter, I would recommend changes like these:

Don't use "Tory" - use "Conservative".  I think the use of "Tory" is something a non Conservative voter would say.

Don't be personal.  That puts people's backs up.  Be polite.  Instead of using "you", use "we".  (As in: we, the country.) That implies you are on their side and trying to help.  As a half way house, you could use "The Government".  Don't use insults either.  Instead of "cowardly" use something like "frightened" or "worried" etc.  Don't use "Boris" either - use "Prime Minister".  It shows respect.  You're adressing the position held, not the person.  (Besides, Boris might not be PM by the time it gets read...)

"That is a mistake I will not be making again."

Never say never.

This states that no matter what they do, you won't vote for them.  This gives them no incentive to do anything different as they have already lost your vote.  Say something along the lines of "If this continues, I cannot, in good faith, vote Conservative at the next election."  The next election is what politicians always have their eye on.

"you have financially ruined the country"

Never say never #2.  

This states that it is now too late and the effects are irreversible.  Again, this gives them no incentive to do anything different as the damage is already done.  Say something along the lines of "If this continues, the country will face financial ruin" etc.  This gives them an incentive to change their strategy.

"I am a self confessed tight wad."   Too coarse.  Replace with something similar to "being prudent" etc. (Copyright Gordon Brown though.)

Mention his legacy.  He'll sure be thinking about that as it appeals to the ego, and he has a big one of those.

Mention that you know many other Conservative voters that share your opinion.  (My name is Legion, for we are many.)

Of course, if you just want to vent, replace the whole thing with:

"Dear Boris, You can shove your restrictions up your arse, and fuck off while you're doing it.  Kindest regards, Bornagain."

IN THE BIGGEST, BOLD, CAPITAL LETTERS THAT YOU CAN.

Hope that helps!

Holly.  (From The Daily Mash.)

Probably not much point writing to Boris, but there might be to your local MP. I wrote to mine to tell him how disappointed I was that he had voted in favour of lockdown 2. I'm actually fairly sure that he or one of his minions replied to it individually, so voter disapproval may have registered.

It's going to both.

I wrote to the previous (labour) MP when Brexit became really contentious in Autumn 2019. He at least had the decency to write back with (I think) a personal letter as it specifically addressed the points I made, we exchanged a few emails but as I predicted to him, he lost at the election.

I wrote to our new Tory MP about COVID in the summer and I did get a response, but it was clearly a standard reply which did not address my points at all - so fuck her.....and before you ask -  I wouldn't.

Better chance if you draw some pictures and colour them in, with just a few words at the side written in big letters.

What do you want to happen?

As it stands the first sentence says what they should do with it -- ignore it, because you're not going to be a voter.

As it stands loads of Tory voters (typically the elderly) love the current approach.  There's no negative (ie, impact on income) and the gov is trying to save them.  As it stands they can afford to lose lots like you and still come out on top.

I'd say there's no point in moaning to Boris.  There might be a point in getting your message to other outfits, but that's complex because all dissent is now called 'mad people'.

If it helps - I can send it to Boris as he is my MP. I've written before pretending to be a lifelong Tory voter, so no skin off my nose. ... i'm probably very high on the gulag list already.

Logic and reason are pointless with these boobs. As Peter Hitchens says, something polite, short and sharp like 

"You are being paid very well to represent the people of this constituency. If you continue to support these lockdowns, I will do everything I can to encourage people to vote against you"

I've written to my MP a couple of times previously about the Covids.  Surprisingly he seems to have a good grasp of the subject beyond the party line.  He's fully aware of the costs of lockdowns to society and was even up to speed on the False Positive PCR issue (although he still supports mass testing).  He voted against his own party in the last vote about Tiers.

I wrote again today regarding tomorrows vote.  I'm hoping he'll vote against the government again but won't hold my breath.
