I'm sad, though not in the least surprised, that the media and political elite blame the electorate for their loss in the election. To those who expected to win the fact that they didn't must mean that the voters, especially the working class ones, are idiots. That they are too stupid to know what's best. Too blinded by the media.....
That the voters are thick.
It's as if the political elite find fault with the voters and want us replaced with a better class of voter rather thank reflect in their own flaws and blame their policies. A new, better class of voter which follows the Guardian's lead and does what tbe elite want is their want.
This isn't good. The voters are not all lumpen thickos. They don't blindly follow the tabloids. For the political and media elite not to realise that is dangerous. It means that the real concerns of the working person is not seen as valid and they don't have to try to represent the voters legitimate views or worries.
The electorate aren't idiots. We are our country and the fact that the elite don't understand this and think the working class are thick is deeply unhealthy for our country.
We need to change this terrible state of affairs.
But nothing will change alas.
