I've found the 30% who vote Labour!

A thick, deluded, partisan, ignorant, non-thinking idiot standing next to a Labour activist

Ever wondered why Labour still hold 30% of the voting slice?  I did.  And now I know why and where.

Some old crone on LBC this morning rabbled on and on and said the most ridiculous, partisan claptrap and refused to be corrected.  She said:

  • Tony Blair inherited a country that had a terrible debt in 1997
  • The Thatcher government was more corrupt than this Labour governement
  • We had 3 million unemployed in 1997
  • Gordon Brown had reduced this debt and had given more workers jobs
  • The hospitals are better and the schools are better
  • Interest rates were apparently 16% in 1997 when Tony Blair took over
  • We had three day weeks under Thatcher

The worse thing about the conversation, is that despite the evidence proffered by James Max, she refused to believe it, like an eco-scientist receiving a collection of Hadley CRU emails.

This, dear reader, is where your labour voting slice comes from.  Thick, ignorant, partisan individuals who refused to open their eyes and think for themselves.

We live in a country where people unquestionably believe what they are told.


  1. I'm going to have to look into this. For some reason your posts aren't appearing in my Google Reader and I thought this blog had ceased operating!

    In recent months, I've been doing my best to circulate articles amongst my colleagues and people I know which deviate from the MSM orthodoxy (i.e. they tell the truth). There's not a lot we can do to force people to go in search of facts / the truth, but what we can do is at least dunk it down on a plate and say "take it or leave it". I tend to find it gets a debate going, even if people disagree with me or whatever article I've sent to them. At least they know there are other views out there. Planting the seed, so to speak...

    Anyone who doesn't challenge having seen the other side of the coin, deserves the government they get. I just wish we didn't have to get it as well.

  2. More worrying is who told her this guff? It's not even close to being accurate.

  3. Well put Corrugated Soundbite - getting a discussion started is a step in the right direction.

    I hope you sort out the Google Reader issue - and welcome by the way.
