    Your days are numbered, Cameron and Clegg. Now that we have a new leader in the form of Ed Miliband, we'll be back in power quicker than Danny Alexander and the other ConDem scum can defraud the taxpayer by flipping their houses.

    And ha ha at the Lib Dems, languishing on a pathetic 12%....it doesn't surprise me one bit seeing as though I've seen literally hundreds of their members sign up to Labour over the past few weeks.

    Another 13 years of Labour is on the cards, as soon as we dispose of this filthy, disease-ridden ConDem.
    storming ahead ? Labour has been within a few points of the tories on YouGov for weeks now, even equaling them a few days ago. Its "storming" ahead by no means...

    And i presume this is the same YouGov which has Ed Milliband currently on -80odd opinion points, with the vast majority of views being negative ?

    edit: make that -102.

    Polls are pretty insignificant and volatile at the moment, within the last few days the tories had a 4 point lead. Wait until the tories expose Ed as a union candiate and then he will be ******.

    what's happening is people are waking up to the fact that the cuts are ideologically driven. There's no need to cut so deep so fast. They have no mandate for the cuts they're proposing

    The tories cut public services , it's what they do...and with the recession they have the perfect excuse to take a sledge hammer to it with the cover of the Lib Dums also

    What we did to the country?

    So that would be the introduction of the minimum wage, the introduction of civil partnerships, the saving of the NHS from Tory oblivion, the building and improving of thousands of schools - improving education to a greater extent than ever seen in recent times, the ending of homophobic Tory legislation, greater equality rights for minority groups and all the other terrible things we did? Ha!

    Our support comes from the moral people of this country. It's funny that pretty much all of my university lecturers and peers support Labour, whereas I don't know of any who are Tories. Labour is the party of the country's intelligentsia and good natured....and don't you forget it.
    Intelligentsia? Ha!

    It's all good and well for old socialists to sit in their ivory tower and cast judgement, but the let can't run a country efficiently.

    Oh, ou brought all this wonderful stuff in. But what about the selling of our country to the EU? How about this gaping hole in our pockets? You know, the one £280 billion just fell out of.

    All of Labour's equality laws are a product of the times, not their stance or governing. It would have happened no matter who was in power. What I have seen from Labour is a remarkable aviodance of any real policy. You know, the sort of stuff required to deal with the countries deficit, and it's social problems.

    Tory support comes from realists, and moral people. And don't you forget it.

    Labour relys on the uneducated and the woking classes for votes. And with the growin politicl apathy in our younger generations, we will see that support wane. Unless they follow their agenda of buying votes through ridiculous schemes, as they have these past few years.

    If you think that you haven't met people with differing political views to yourself you are kidding yourself. Bet you both a tenner that one of your close friends will vote for the party you oppose at the next election.
    Oh no, you misunderstand me. I know plenty of people who will vote Labour. For what they can get, money grabbers. They won't vote for what Labour can do for he country, or any policies that don't apply to them.

    Labour supporters are either old syle, deluded socialists or money grabbers.

    Oh you funny Labour supporters.

    No one wants to see you back in government. Look what your' party did to the country :rolleyes:

    You're support comes from those on benifits and people who vote Labour out of habit. Either through Area divisions, or historical voting.

    I don't think I've met anyone who activley supports Labour for their policys unless it means they're going to get some money off the government.
    You need to try harder then, as I don't really get anything off the Government and actually seem to be better off so far under the Tory Government with the things they've announcement. Yet I support Labour.

    They are the one party that actually gives a damn about people and puts people first. The Tories are just interested in money and ensuring the rich get more whilst the Lib Dems just like to try and be popular and offer anyone what they think they want to hear.

    Labour may have lost it's way at times, but I think you will be seeing a reinvigorated Labour Party under it's new leadership with a new direction to put people first and support them so they all have equal chances and opportunities what ever their wealth and background. Only by trying to do that will we get a fairer, better country for ALL.

    It's hardly storming past now is it? It's a 1% lead. And it's not a situation that can be capitalized on for another four and a half years.
    Although I'm no hater of the Coalition, saying that the government with all certainty will last for a full 5 years is not a smart idea. Labour was not divided in 1997 but 3 years in and there were some staunch dissenters. These are two opposing parties and I wouldn't be surprised if the irrepairable cracks appear within the next 12 months as opposed to the current cracks that are being glued back together.

    I'm not saying it will break apart within 12 months or even 2 or 3 years, but I don't think by any stretch that a bet on a full five year coalition (I support 4 or 3 year fixed terms anyway, 5 years is too long, capitalised on by Brown) is going to pay out.

    Care for the people is all well and good. But not at the expense of the country.

    Could Labour carry on going the way they were? No.

    The Tory's will make the hard cuts, get us back on track, then Labour will swoop in in a few years, relax taxes, increase expenses, put us futher into the black but be hailed as 'caring' about the people.

    It's a cycle that is perpetuated thanks to the plebs. Labour give everyone what they want, and take us to the brink of ruin. Conservative bring us back on track, but people don't like that, because they can't see the big picture. So it's all this rubbish about them only caring about the rich.

    SO then people vote Labour, and rinse and repeat.

    Conservative are the best party for the country at the moment. And they will continue to be for a long time. Left wing politics never succeed because what they use is a parody of true politics. A popularity contest.

    What do you mean 'finally'? I've been speaking out in support of Labour for as long as I've been on this site (5 and a half years - 2 and a half of which I've been an Admin) - I hope I've been speaking sense like this for a lot of that time

    You do realise that a 1% lead will create another hung parliament?

    As for the Liberal Democrats, i do not support them as my first choice, but they will bounce above 20% come the run up to the next election, and the coalition ain't going to fall until next summer at the earliest.

    Cameron should call an election, in my opinion. It's the right thing to do. He and his scum coalition have no mandate to govern. The Lib Dem voters were betrayed by Clegg.

    Now that Labour are up and running, let's go to the country, Mr Cameron, so that we can finish you off once and for all!

    You seem to forget that Labour planned some cuts - sensible levels of cuts that would not damage people and the country like the Tory cuts that the Lib Dems are allowing to happen will do. Cut too hard and too fast and you reduced the amount of money out there being spent, this in turn reduced confidence and causes businesses to reduced their spending and leads to people having less to spend, people being made unemployed and the Government spending more on benefits to support the extra unemployed.

    But cut sensibly at the right time and you don't damage confidence, don't make massively more unemployed, don't increase your spending by as much on benefits and so you get back to a stage where your economy is growing well much quicker and you can more afford to make spending cuts to reduce the deficit over a longer period and also reduce the deficit as a perentage of your GDP as a result of the increased growth.

    People will be sorry when they see the extent of the spending cuts next month. We're alreayd know we're going to be losing thousands of police. Sussex alone has announcements 1000 job cuts in the police with half of these expected to be officers. Similar cuts will happen in all areas of the country for all types of public sector workers.

    Labour did not improve education. All they did was dumb down the exams. If you look at the rankings for maths, english etc relative to the rest of the globe we have dropped down the rankings since 1997. What a waste of money.
