Election Night

And so the wait begins. I’m not staying up for results; as I have said to a number of people over the last few days: I prefer to experience the inevitable existential dread over a cup of coffee in the morning.

And yet I am nervous. I have been deliberately avoiding the news and social media today as far as possible. As an unashamed Leftie and member of the LGBTQIA+ community I am scared for what another five years of right wing rule will bring.

I work with and serve people who have had their lives torn apart in the last ten years of Tory rule. I am worried over the language of division and hate that colours so much of the conversation around me.

I hope my fears are baseless. I hope my visions of the near future are wrong. I ardently hope that whatever tomorrow brings will actually lead to a brighter place for us all.

Please let me be wrong.
