How Long Until The Sheeple Vote Labour Again?

Recommended Posts

Did you know that NO Labour government has ever left power with the economy in better shape than when it found it. Nor has it EVER left office with lower un-employment than when it came to power.

Yet do you remember 1997, people cheered and danced in the streets at their win. A whole swath of hateful celbs lined up to be seen close to labour. Radio 1 encouraged people on the day to go and vote labour. Apparently, although I did not see it myself but the corridors of Broadcasting house, home of our independent BBC was strewn with empty campaign bottles on may 2nd 1997*.

It seems people really had forgotten the last labour government. Since this site likes making predictions (like that crazy house price crash one) how long do you think until everything is forgiven and the people of this country welcome back the next Labour government to work their magic on the economy, and no doubt it will be different this time!

OOps put in the wrong quote.

But guess what? They are nowhere near as unpopular as was the Tories during the last 2 recessions, you know, when we realy had 3 million+ unemployed, and riots and whole cities falling apart, along with tax cuts and concession prices on shares for the rich, tax cuts for them also, backdated enough to buy new rollers apparenlty, (I got £2.40) oh, just as we were starting the last recesssion we had the poll tax and in 1990 each individual living in a house had to pay the same massive amount (£600pp where we lived in Shepherds Bush) and then another round of mass unemployment and recession, remember all that, with barely 3 years semi-prosperity between each event (which by the way lasted 5 years for real people, not the 3 Quarters mooted by money people) Labour will however be in the same sort of popularity sh*t before they are finished but given enough rope and Tories will f uck the population over again and will go the same way.

Neither are worthwhile voting in, in my opinion

I'm not going to flame them, but I would be interested hearing from the person who thinks Labour will win this time?

They might not necessarily think Labour will win, its just a possibility, which given the sheeple voted Labour back in this time is a possibility although I think if Labour do get voted back in we should turn our Nuclear Deterrent on ourselves because there would be no hope for this country!

They will be out until the tories self destruct again, at which point the endless cycle will begin again. This will 'rinse and repeat' until i die, or the world ends and i die, at which point i will no longer care.

You are forgetting the large number of morons in the Country who still think that Labour/GB are doing a great job.

Honestly, at my work some think I am mad for daring to critisise our great leader. They have swallowed all that 'its not our fault gov. its a global problem' hook line and sinker and for some inexplicable reason still think that GB was a great Chancellor.

I was slagging of one of the NuLab women the other day (nothing against women in politics but the Labour front bench seems to consist entirely of braindead drones) somebody at my work was suggesting that they liked the woman and thought she spoke sense - I kid you not (I think it was Yvette Cooper).

Not sure of the exact numbers but Clement Atlee's govt were pretty good. Introduction of the NHS. They did however persue a nuclear weapons policy:

Wiki: "Most of the changes introduced by the 1945-51 Labour government however were accepted by the Conservatives and became part of the "post war consensus", which lasted until the 1970s"

In fairness the BBC is earning its pay. If you bombard simple people with the same news again and again they do that.

Yes and the post-war consensus was a disaster. Compare our economy and standard of living with that of France of Germany over the same period. We had stagnation and decline and they had the economic miracle and les trente glorieuses années.

18 years the tories will be in power for at that stage the power will have corrupted them.

People do have short memories no labour government has ever managed the economy. It always amazed me how we often heard about 18 years of Tory misrule when it came to Health, education etc but when it came to the economy Gordon flicked a magic switch 'an end to boom and bust'. Socialist governments can never manage the economy because capatlist systems are at odds with socialist idealism.

What the masses fail to recognise is it was the Tories who put the economy back on its feet and for the first 5 years of this latest Labour government Gordon stuck to the Toreis policies. Having now placed the country in a position of economic strength he then set about being a LABOUR chancellor hence we are now facing the worst ecconomic situation in living memory.

You thought you had it bad under the Tories the next few years will demonstrate why socialists should never have power and that socialism penalises the poor and needy far more than the affluent.

It will be yet again the Tories who will inherit the mess and set about making the difficult painful decisions necessary to get the economy on its feet again. There will be a vocal minority saying how unfair and uncaring they are whilst the silent majority think its the right thing to do.

But then the cycle will continue, everyone will forget and believe that 'things can only getting better' we will then have New New (no this one is really new) LABOUR.
