    Some truth there, my friend…

  2. Ian Marchant says:

    So; if there are no tribal reasons for voting New Labour; and if they’ve launched two illegal wars, attacked civil liberties and fucked the economy, what ARE the reasons for voting for them? Just to ‘keep the Tories out?’ Isn’t that a tribal reaction?

  3. Paul says:

    Not neccessarily tribal it could just be good sense. Voting to elect a neo-thatcherite tory govt would be perverse unless of course that’s what you want.
    It depends where you live and what you want; it sounds to me IPM if you are seeking revenge on the party that let you down after you voted for them against your better judgement in ’97.

    >>I’m trying to argue that if we once had tribal reasons for voting Labour, they are no longer valid.<< At last! I agree with you completely Ian; the tribe's largely disbanded too

  5. Ian Marchant says:

    You’re lucky. You can vote Plaid…
    Well, I can too, but not realistically. So it’s still Tweedle Dem for me…

  6. Paul says:

    Teweddle Dum, Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dem?

    BBC. And not tactically; he says he likes their manifesto.
    Hating the Tories and liking New Labour is like being scared of spiders, but not cars. It’s a kind of race memory. Spiders look horrible, and when we were back in Africa they could also kill us. So we remain scared. But now they hardly kill anybody. Cars, however, kill about a million people a year. I’m trying to argue that if we once had tribal reasons for voting Labour, they are no longer valid.

  8. ‘Billy Bragg came out for the Lib Dems’ ?? Tactically only I assume – be interested to see your source for this.

    This is quite informative
