    Received wisdom says that at this point in the electoral cycle, the government should be at it’s most unpopular. Red Ed is clearly doing a great job convincing the electorate that he is not PM material.

    But, thanks to Clegg & Co., the Tories need a substantial lead just to compensate for the inequitable situation over constituency boundaries. So no chickens should be counted!

    Not really. There is a section of society that will vote Labour come what may. Luciana Berger and David Miliband amongst many other champagne socialists owe their political careers to that strange phenomenon.

    A lesson from history says:

    It never ceases to amaze me when I speak to people who went to school in the 80’s and were taught that Thatcher was evil personified and that prior to her being elected everything was socialist utopia and how many are totally unaware of the chaos of the 70’s under Labour when there were strikes almost every week, a run on the pound and massive stagnation of the economy as state subsidized industries such as British Leyland made cars that were unreliable and that nobody wanted. They are literally amazed when told the facts and the independent source documents so that they can check for themselves. Their usual response is…”But we were never taught this” or “We were taught that everything was wonderful before Thatcher !” The socialists know one thing…”Give me the child until she/he is 7 and I will give you the man/woman!”

    The Labour Heartlands will deliver the keys of No10 for Miliband says:

    There are still areas of the country where they weigh the Labour vote and where they could put a red rosette on a donkey and it would get elected. The fact is that Labour is playing to its core vote on the calculation that if they maintain 36% share of vote given the electoral unfairness that the Tory party suffers from that would still be enough to get Miliband into No10 as PM in 2015. UKIP is just exacerbating the situation and guaranteeing that Labour will win and UKIP will certainly not get a MP elected to Wetsminster given the vagaries of the present system so they are in fact just ensuring that they will NEVER get their referendum by ensuring Labour is elected and however much some people may dislike it…it’s Cameron or Labour there is no alternative prior to election now

    Unfortunately the 16 year olds are rather right wing in outlook so that might not work.

    They have grown up under Labour, and have watched their birthright be pissed up the wall. They have watched as a party incapable of understanding the concept of unintended consequences has seen to it that they will have a lower standard of living than their parents. Are they supposed to be grateful?

    The left cannot process this. They think the young will vote for them whatever they do because they are ‘cooler’ than the stuffy old grown ups in the other gang.

    They can spin all they like, current politicians are like corpulent dogs fighting over an ever diminishing share of the Bonio as the more savvy among the population vote with their feet knowing through past experience there ain’t much point in employing a representative who won’t listen to their wishes and will use every trick in the book to cheat them in the process given half a chance.

    And then….when defeated sit on their fanny and suck as much out of the system as possible while doing bugger all for none but themselves pretending to be “in opposition”

    Frankly if you vote for any of them you should be sectioned and a swift kick in the nut’s to wake your ideas up would not be out of the question.

It is such a mess this time it will take ten years to sort it out. If we get another Labour Government in 2015 we will be really fucked.
    Have a look at every country that has tried Socialism. Russia, China, Korea Etc. Look at the lefties dream in Venezuela. The economy is now totally fucked.
    Capitalism isn’t perfect by any means but it has proven time and time again to improve living standards generally instead of dragging everyone down to the third world levels of Socialism. Life will never be fair for all. That is reality. Grow up and face the facts.
