    Ian dearest…do you honestly believe that a ‘red’ Labour party would have done anything different to what Blair & Brown have done over the last 13 years?
    The economy would still be fucked. They’ve got lots of previous there, remember.
    Schools would still be churning out legions of drab little propagandized drones without an ounce of initiative between them.
    They’d have still considered a British passport and its full implications to be slightly less relevant than the list of ingredients on the back of a Bisto packet.

    The main problem that they’d have had would have been that they’d have had to be a bit more honest about their aims than the ‘New’ lot were. Which would have meant that they’d never have been elected. Shite world, isn’t it?

    I only ever voted for a successful candidate once; in 1997. And look where it got me…

  3. I feel your despair Ian.

    I’ve never voted for a successful candidate or party, mostly for geographical reasons, but nevertheless I’ve never been represented.

    Which is exactly how I feel now.

    Yes, it’s a hot one all right. Good luck with the daily blog – I’ll read it alongside The Daily Mash, which is also going to make great comedy hay out of the next month.
    Like the comment about the Tories being in power since 1979. I venture that it changed a bit after Fatch, but looking back, what’s to choose between Blair, Brown, Major, Hague…
    I haven’t voted in the last two elections. It was a conscious choice. I wasn’t going to vote Tory, obv., but I was also fucked if I was going to give ‘New’ Labour a vote of confidence. Maybe if I’d lived somewhere where my vote would have made a difference I might have thought differently but all it was ever going to be was a miniscule contribution to Tony’s mandate and I wasn’t prepared to offer that.
    The Tory tactical vote. Interesting thinking IP. I worry though, that this is where it starts and once you’ve gone Tory, you’ll never go back…

    Hope you can keep it up daily ’til this ‘democratic’ farrago reaches it’s inevitable conclusion. Basically, we’re all f***ed whoever ‘wins’, but I shall, as ever, be entertained by your observations in the meanwhile.
