England was the only region in the UK to vote conservative. The SNP won in scotland and labour won in wales with the DUP winning in northern ireland. The majority of nations rejected the conservatives but are being forced against their will to suffer the rule of the snooty english bullingdon club. What makes england so different to the rest of the uk and makes everywhere apart from the north so self interested and snobbish to vote tory. All the other nations wanted ed miliband as PM it simply isn't fair.

England is a country not a region.

Yes they did but England has a population of around 53 million, but Scotland, Wales and NI combined have 11 million people.

are being forced against their will to suffer the rule

not really - it's called democracy.

Bit of a generalisation?

The idea that voting Conservative is selfish implicitly accepts the premise that a Conservative government would make the voters' lives better, and Labour their lives worse.

I'm not surprised Labour found that such a hard sell.

Mate, it's obvious you're a troll. I've looked at some of your previous threads and you say the same things - see here:

Why do people still reply to these threads? No matter who wins an election there will always be people in the minority who complain. This is nothing special.

You do know that the DUP are just the Northern Irish version of the Tories? The Tories don't run in Northern Ireland because the DUP are so similar to them there's no point, they always vote with the Tories on everything.

Not that I think the thread's serious, but voting Labour because you don't want your benefits to be cut is no less selfish than voting Conservative because you want to keep more of your own money.

Everyone's selfish.
