PLAN B – FIRST PAST THE POST


They call it first past the post
You live in a constituency kinda like an area code There are 650 of these various zones. Up and down the country designed to compartmentalise votes Check the system, listen, The Prime-ministerial candidate with the most votes don’t always win in this system Our votes only count towards helping some random politician in our local jurisdiction better his position Come closer listen in…
Only takes a third of the population to give a party the majority they need to win
Even if more people in total across the u.k i.e. the real majority, vote against em getting in, yeah The systems kinda fucked and it doesn’t seem fair But that’s the way it is here and also over
there In the USA where the airs already turned sour
Cos more people voted for Hilary but Trump still got into power
But check the loop hole, It’s called tactical voting If you live in an area where most of your neighbours are a mix of blue and red And are practically neck to neck in the polling And the yellow party are the party you’ve
invested all your hopes in Then your vote will probably be in vein
I know this sounds insane and probably makes you feel Like you’d do better if you just abstained And didn’t vote for no one like, fuck em
they all the same No one represents me or my peoples anyways
But what if one party is the best of a bad bunch And you’d rather them get into power than those other lying cunts
What then? Think practically The only way of ensuring the worst don’t
happen is by voting tactically i.e voting for the party you hate least so
the one you hate most don’t just win automatically In the past this has worked when those of
you liberals in the centre have acted pragmatically Accepting things the way they are without
tryina change them dramatically Cos you know you’ll lose systematically
But we’re living in different times now, unprecedented If Trumpism has taught us anything it’s that the political system However demented and augmented can be dented And you ain’t gotta go out and vote the
same way all your family and friends did So go on, role the dice and play the game
Not all constituencies are the same, Some are red, some are blue
And some are all together strange, mixes of the two, That hang in the balance And you might do well by putting your X up
on that ballot, Throw some seasoning in that salad
Just try and swing it, help your party win it That seat in the Commons still has value in it Even if your party aint running government they can have a voice within it Veto policies
they don’t agree with That the party in control are tryina pass
through and get em beated Like when Boris tried to prorogue parliament
and got defeated Fuck how you wanna live now
This is about how you wanna move forward What kind of future you want for your sons
and your daughters And all you OAP’s out there, the ones that
are probably gonna die in the next ten years anyway… Why don’t you ask your 15/16 year old grand kids Who they’d vote for if they could and go and vote for em? You’re generations already fucked up the environment for em. How about not fucking up their futures for em as well? At your marks… Get set… Go… First Past The Post
That’s what they call the system we use in this country when we vote
Cameron said that Britain’s broke But the only thing that’s broke in Britain
is this system, trust me, It’s a fucking joke Just a two horse race like Lidl and Aldi
Fuck where you do your Christmas shopping man All they wanna know is ‘you an inny or an outty? Naaa They don’t wanna see your belly button man
You don’t wanna live to regret this Second chance to stay or head for the exit
Naa Obviously i’m talking bout Brexit
Yeah that’s right we all still talking bout Brexit This ain’t no super complex shit, its simple Fuck how these politicians flexing
Tryina make this shit about their parties policies When aint nothing moving forward till this problems been corrected
So vote Torie if you wanna be free from European influence And become the 51st state of The US when it comes to trading Or vote Labour and have another referendum on whether we leave the EU Now that everyone’s more informed about the situation But if you’re worried bout Jeremy stifling wealth creation and don’t wanna vote for Boris cos you fucking hate him
Then vote Lib Dem in the constituencies they have a realistic stake in
Or the Green Party I hear some of you shouting -respect if that’s where you stand your
ground in- Or any of the other smaller independent parties
in the areas they have some actual clout in And force a hung parliament
So no mother fucker has the majority and we get another coalition government
…the choice is yours Vote with your head and your heart in equal
measures Now that you’re better informed… Take your vote and go hell for leathers Go
rustle some fucking feathers… Oh and merry xmas
What’s at the top of your wish list? Apart from wrapping up this whole dirty stinking business Go out and get voting
After that you can get the smoke in and crack the tins open Cos you’ll need a clear head
for what’s approaching No joking
Trust me the game’s wide open… You know what to do…
Hit the likes on this bitch it needs promoting
