I cannot trust Blair - EVERYONE with 2 brain cells to rub together knows he's lied to us more than once. QED. HOW CAN ANYBODY VOTE LABOUR? I don't want to appear flippant or sarcastic but i really don't understand. Is it a case of "well yes he lied but he won't lie anymore"? or "ok he lied but i'm NEVER voting tory or lib-dem" (in which case that's your objectivity out of the window...). How can anyone support him OR the 'others'? I don't understand the concept of supporting someone who either lies or doesn't represent you so i CANNOT vote for any of the parties available. Wish i could.....written 3rd May 2005
Mitch replies: People can vote for whoever they want. It's called Democracy. Ok so you list Iraq and Blair as your reasons for not voting labour, but they've also done a lot of good in power. So he lied. Show me a Prime Minister who hasn't and i'll eat my hat.written 3rd May 2005
Andy replies: Then vote for 'em Mitch. Really there's no need at all to be flippant : i know what democracy is but if your sole argument is "well all the rest do it" thats primary-school level. If people continue to vote for liars and reckon it's OK then you're encouraging the rest.
The difference between science and opinion is measurement : more and more people are not voting - QED. "So he lied" - go tell that to the people who've lost relatives (i think you know that you wouldn't do that....)written 3rd May 2005
