A comment from Andy S in a Disqus thread. I haven’t come across Andy before but have heard similar things to those he complains of from Labour supporters for many years.
I think the best was about a month after the 2010 election when the lefties were in full witch hunt mode against the coalition and I blogged that we had to give them a chance.
“A chance? Look how they’ve screwed up the economy,” raved one left wing commenter. The real tragedy was that the pillock wasn’t joking. Anyway over to Andy S.
The ignorance and gullibility of the Labour Party faithful is astounding to behold. If they are anything like the two Labour canvassers I encountered on Saturday outside my local shop they’d believe anything Ed told them. Among the howlers these two socialist idiots were convinced were true were:-
Andrew Lansley covered up the deaths at Stafford and other hospitals (not Andy Burnham). Also thought that the only unnecessary deaths were at one hospital.
The 50p tax rate on higher earners was introduced in 1997!
Maggie Thatcher sent in hundreds of troops against the miners at Orgreave.
Churchill sent in troops to shoot and kill striking Welsh miners in the 1920s.
Only Tory MPs were gaoled for expenses fiddling.
The 4 million+ immigrants Labour allowed to flood into the country was because we had a skills shortage.
Convinced Maggie Thatcher closed down all the pits (despite me pointing out that the N.U.M.’s own website shows that Labour closed down more pits that the Tories ever did.
I could go on but these two middle aged idiots, who should have known better, wouldn’t accept the truth of what Labour did in power, even though I told them where to research the facts. While we have people like these two I despair for the future of this country.
Labour Leadeship Contest, Corbyn Comedy Caper
When Labour elected Ed Miliband as their leader in 2010 it was clear the party had a death wish. The ‘broad church’ Prime Minister Harold Wilson spoke of in the 1960s, the alliance of intellectuals and socially conservative industrial workers who made up the party’s core vote managed to coexist. Then came feminism, politically correct thinking, New Labour factions as the party started to tear itself apart. It looks as if we are in the endgame.
He’s Not The Messiah, His Name Is Edymandias – Miliband’s slab stunt goes down like a Lead Balloon
Only two days campaigning left before polls open for the 2015 general election. Who will winn? Opinion Poll show no conclusive trends. But inside information tells us the reason conservative Prime Minister David Cameron has a smile on his face as the campaigning draws to a close. Farage is radiant, Clegg looks chirpy as his chances of holding his Sheffied seat have improved enormously, only Ed Milband is down in the dumps.
