One of the reasons I have never voted Labour is because when Ted Heath was Prime Minister railway arches and walls were daubed with slogans like ‘Tories out’ or ‘Heath out’. Ten years later it was ‘Thatcher out’ but I never saw graffiti that said ‘Wilson out’, or ’Callaghan out’ or ‘Blair out’. It convinced me during those periods that Labour was the party for barely literate hooligans without any constructive ideas of their own. Has anything changed? Not according to a correspondent with a stuck Caps Lock key.
JUST HEARD THAT LABOUR ARE PLANNING ANTI UKIP LEAFLETS IN THE NORTH OF BEXLEY.
NOT SURE WHY, I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT TORIES ARE A BIGGER THREAT BUT MAYBE NOT.
NOTHING LIKE A BIT OF DIRTY POLITICS FROM LABOUR. EXPECTED IT FROM TORIES, BUT NOT LABOUR.
LABOUR JUST LOST MY VOTE!
What can I say? Line 3; I thought non-stop shameless dirty tricks was the Lib/Dems’ preserve. Line 4; Inclined to agree but depends on what I see. The BAG people are going to push rivals Peter Craske and Chris Taylor’s records down people’s throats and I think that is well deserved. If UKIP can be reasonably criticised I’d be a hypocrite if I came off the fence and went against Labour.
I have no idea what Labour is planning; I have more contact with disenchanted Conservatives than Labourites, and the former have listed their prospective candidates and I’ve found nothing similar for Labour. Perhaps they have an embarrassing shortage of candidates.
