The British singer took to Twitter to discuss the results of the UK general election
Singer Paloma Faith has spoken out following this week’s UK general election.
The British public took to the polls to elect a new government on Thursday (May 7), with the Conservatives winning enough seats to form a majority government and both Labour and the Lib Dems suffering greatly.
With the likes of Thom Yorke, Tim Burgess and Franz Ferdinand already giving their views on the election results, Faith has now taken to Twitter to describe herself as “very afraid” by the prospect of a Tory-led government for the next five years.
“It’s a sad day and we may lose our place in the EU as well I am very afraid,” the singer wrote on Friday, adding, “Be light! Be kind! Humility is the key! And don’t be dissuaded-hope still exists we must take to the streets!”
Paloma Faith has previously spoken out about her socialist ideals and said she wouldn’t allow David Cameron to come to one her shows. The singer has also said that women in music are being ‘suppressed’.
In March, Faith recruited left-wing writer and activist Owen Jones to give a speech as the support act for her concert in London. She claims to have done so in fear that gig-goers may have been planning to vote for far-right party UKIP.
