Unite Behind Right-Wing Press

One gem hidden away at the bottom of Lord Ashcroft’s Unite polling today. As much as Ed and Red Len might want to think otherwise, just 11% of Unite members read the Guardian and Mirror respectively. Turns out not far off double that read the Mail and the Sun. Good on them.

      Would? vote for a donkey’s arse. I thought that’s exactly what they ‘do’ vote for.

    Both the Mail and the Sun do a good line in the gee-gees and young ladies showing off their chests and other wobbly bits. All that the working man needs.

      which other “wobbly bits”? if other bits are wobbling they are probably very saggy and not of great interest

    Then they’ll sign ‘members’ up for a free daily Guardian or Mirror. All part of the Trade Union Mafia system to make all their Union members fully paid ups in Labour Party. You will read what we want you to read and vote for the party we tell you to vote for!

    Well the other way to read that is not all Mail or Sun readers support Murdoch’s anti union agenda.

      What leads you to that conclusion? Just because people are bullied into joining a union doesn’t mean they support it. If union members were pro unions you’d think more than a third of them would vote in union elections

    I’m a unite member … and I read the guardian. Admittedly I’m giggling my backside off most of the time … but I do read it.

      Didn’t Groucho Marx say something about laughing so much he couldn’t put it down and one day he might actually read it? Must have been the oh-so-fcuking-tolerant Graun. Groucho was always far better for a quote than over-privileged middle class bigot boy Karl.

    2% ukip voters read the guardian, even less register to do their looney polls, but ukip still got 262 votes out of 1000ish (weighted to 130 by looney lefties)

    These figures are nonsense. Union members read the Guardian as much as the Mirror – pull the other one.

Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
