Hearing people talk politics for the first time at work today was quite disheartening. Nobody seemed to have actually read the manifestos they've just seen the headlines on the Daily Mail. I heard the word '1970s' several times, someone mentioned giving money to poor people as if was a bad thing, there was a conversation about the recent ransomware attack and that it would have been worse under Labour (even though they manage the Welsh NHS and weren't affected by the attack), and a manager went on a huge rant about how evil Labour are for wanting to cap bosses pay if they want public contracts, as if that is the most serious issue we face as a country. No one in the office would be affected by it but for some reason everyone seemed to agree with him.
I'm in Surrey so Tories are guaranteed to win here anyway, but if the number of illogical or misinformed arguments I heard today is any indication then the country is going to let the Tories do as they have promised.
