So the 3rd and finale live election debate was on last nite…

What did you reckon…

 Wweellllll, to me the Liberals again performed well, against and huff-and-puff of labour, ( although Brown does seem genuinely passionate about his politics ) and the too slick tories.

 The true feelings of the British electorate though were summed up by a woman in the audience, of Question Time, the follow on show. Who in no uncertain terms told the panel that the British electorate was sick of being fobbed off with non answers to questions, and to declare exactly  how many cuts , and where the cuts in public spending would be made ! as she said ” you work for us, we pay you ! ” but sadly Dimbleby smoothed over the comment, and on to the next question. That was the money question that had to answered.

 We all know that cuts are coming, probably very heavy cuts in spending, but be honest, about it, and tell us !! we are not uninformed children, be honest with us, you may be surprised by the reaction !

So May 6th is election day,( the worst kept secret in british politics )

So who gets your vote, ?? and why ?

The usual apathy surrounds this election, the old “all parties are the same” tagline…in a way the parties are the same, because they are fighting for the middle ground, the problem is where does the middle ground lie, ?

 This old chestnut, class voting….

 The old Two Ronnies class sketch …. comes to mind, tradition is still seen as important ” I have always voted Labour, as did me father, and his before… ” etc,

 Simon Schama on Question Time hit the nail on the head, with a sledgehammer…. by saying that a good politician forgets his background, and empathises with the majority.

  But this is not a real reason for voting, in this time of economic instability, we have to evaluate which party is going to help us A) individually, and B) Nationally.  and this again is a tough decision, as we all know public spending cuts are coming, but none of the main parties will say where they will fall , or how much !

 We have a unique opportunity in this election. To Vote. a freedom that millions would kill to have.

 Don’t mis-use it.


Petrol prices are rising fast, ( as I keep documenting )

Another 2p on fuel duty in April,

and it is rumoured that the Chancellor is going to add 3p MORE at the Budget next week

Congratualtions Labour !!!   You have officially lost my vote !!

I travel a 72 mile round trip daily to work, With a bus service that would take me 3 hrs+ per day, and I live in an area in the European top 5 for lack of investment, poverty, and unemployment. I NEED A CAR  ( 9 yr old Fiesta mind )  ( if you ( government) had extended the scrappage scheme by a yr, I MAY have been tempted )!!!  

So When the price of petrol at the pump has risen by 15p PER LITRE in the last year alone, you are crucifying me !!!

I’m an average joe, with an average life, and the kind of voter that surely you are looking to attract, So help me and thousands of others out, instead of lining the Treasury, and paying off the national debts ( which I do not think that I personally am responsible for, yet surely own a share in several banking establishments in this country —–   which are still paying bonuses to staff !! )

Come on stop the increase in Fuel duty, !


Labour you have lost my vote

( alternative unknown, I am an official “floating voter” )

reasons for this rant are

1)  Persisant raising of the fuel duty ( 3 times in 9 months )

2) Tax credit shambles, It is a mess !

3) The area I live in is officially the worst IN EUROPE for unemployment, causing me to drive 72 miles a day, to work, there are NO job opportunities , for me , or ANY young people !

4) The local administrative area seems to spend all the council tax ( OF WHICH I PAY ) on that town, my town gets a pitance, ( just look at local investment, in the town, and shops etc ! )

 OOHH  YES, AND RENAVATING A PARK AND HISTORIC HOUSE DOES NOT COUNT,  The 2 million for this, etc, could have been spent better !!!

 5) Is it our turn for the last couple of months to have our street lights turned off main roads to save money ?? Try driving in torrential rain, and no lights, I thought I was back in the Good Old Socialist Republic Of South Yorkshire !!!!

6) MP expenses shame

7) Lack of respect and funding for our troops overseas.

I voted blair ‘cos things could only get better  !!!! 

things have turned sour !

 

Any other party wants my vote, please send info through door  

(   ANNND   breathe, and relax, glad that’s over with ! )
