    Tina heard that her husband

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Tina heard that her husband, Mark, wanted to organise a party to raise funds for the Conservatives, and had had enough of him. She immediately applied for a divorce. She always voted Liberals and would forgive Mark for being unfaithful or some other sins but never his support for the Conservatives. No matter how much Mark tried to talk her out of it, she was implacable.
    "I'd rather be alone for the rest of my life than live with someone who endorses the party based on greed and exploitation," Tina said in a booming voice. standing in the kitchen as if she were standing on the podium.
    "I wasn't aware that you've become a communist," Mark said.
    "I'm not a communist, but I hate injustice and oppression. I'd rather be angry now when I'm thirty than sour and grumpy when I'm eighty. If you want to remain blind and deaf and don't want to see what is going on in society, that's your choice. I made my choice long ago. Goodbye!"
