In a last desperate bid to preserve some credibility Tony Blair asked voters to think about Labour’s successes before casting their vote. Little Nicky Machiavelli asks the same of you. Since coming to power Labour, the people’s party have:
Successfully sold of most of the nations (our) remaining public assets for knock down prices not to us but to American owned multi national corporations;
Lied about Weapons of mass destruction to drag us into an unwinnable war;
Contracted out work in the public sector to contractors who are far better equipped to raise invoices than to deliver services;
Given the Scots and Welsh their own national assemblies at enormous cost but without any benefit to either the whole nation or its component parts;
Introduced Private Finance Initiatives in health and education that allow contractors to charge exhorbitant management fees for managing new hospitals and schools they have not actually built;
Reduced road safety measures to a form of taxation;
Abandoned investment in public transport because forcing people to have their own cars brings in more revenue;
Screwed up the pension system;
Screwed up education;
Screwed up tax credits;
Screwed up the National Health service;
Screwed up everything else.
So please before you vote, think about Labour’s successes. And then vote for somebody else. ANYBODY ELSE.
Latest sleazy scam to pop out of the orifice Tonlt Blkair usually talks though is a suggestion that voting should be compulsory. The reasoning behind this is that people conditioned to think of only two viable parties of government will naturally go for the lesser of two bags of shite which, Labour assume, will in most peoples’ minds be be Labour.
The arrogance of this is gobsmacking. It assumes we do not vote because we are too apathetic. More often than not, non voting is an active choice. I vote Green whenever I have a green candidate to vote for (usually only European elections) but I will vote for any other fringe candidate except the BNP. In the past I have voted Monster Raving Loony Independant Accrington Party and Natural Law Party. Not voting is a carefully considered choice.
We have it in our power to nip this sleazy self – interested scam in the bud. If you are voting on Thursday, vote anyone but Labour. I cannot even argue against a BNP vote as I am certain that a surge in support for an extremeist party would focus minds in the major parties as efficiently as a gun held to the head. Vote for the nutter, the guy who paints himself orange and sits in a bath of beans (for charity he claims, but really because he gets a buzz out of it) vote for the local single issue group, vote for the guy who looks like Gandalf. You who are voting have an opportunity to give the liar, war – criminal and career hypocrite Tony Blair a good shove towards the exit door.
Do It, PLEASE!
