They're not voting because...
- Labour's policy of ignoring manifesto pledges
I'm 19 years old. The only elections I remember are the ones Blair has won, and we all know Labour's manifesto pledges beared hardly any resemblance to what they actually did. Why should it be different this time?written 14th Apr 2005
SW replies: It'll be different this time because Tony says so - he's pledged it and you can take that to the bank (and other equally nauseating cliches...) Personally I don't understand how they can look at a TV camera and keep a straight face; I mean, yesterday when they were going on about not raising tax but steadfastly refusing to rule out NI raises. Surely Bliar knows that we know he's going to try it on (again) - and the really sickening thing is, if (or when) it does happen, he'll come out all unctuous and sincere (making us all want to slap his bloody smug, self-satisfied lying grinning face) and tell us how he's got no choice and that although yes, he DID promise he wouldn't, something unforseen (like his mortgage) just came up and sorry old chap but there it is. Aaaargh!!!written 14th Apr 2005
piersh replies: They might not be. But you could vote for a different party than Labour. That's kind of the point.written 14th Apr 2005
