    Most places that could be deemed **** holes in terms of crime, gang culture, aesthetics, standard of living (and so forth) are presided over by Labour MPs or counsellors.

    Why is this?

    Because people from low income brackets are more likely to vote socialist.

    Erm because they're a socialist party who formulate their whole ideology of being a government which serves to improve society as a whole. Hence in the bad areas there are Labour MPs there as they advocate the socialist agenda. Can you stop being a short sighted tory please.

    Anyone else find it somewhat bewildering how the residents of ****holes continually vote for Labour in the hopes that they will improve the area, when quite obviously the vast majority of these ****holes continue to be ****holes when Labour are in control of them? Got to hand it to you Labour supporters, your faith in politics is absolutely astonishing.

    UK voting behaviour was, and to a small degree is, class-based. The lower classes used to vote Labour, and it has stuck as a tradition.

    Blame the Tories for that. Why do you think they all vote Labour?

    Errr... the lives of the poor improved tremendously under Labour after the party ended 18 years of Tory misery. New schools were built, the NHS improved drastically, the minimum wage was introduced, museums were opened up for free of charge, pensions rose, child tax credits were introduced, and much more. The lives of the working poor were transformed. You have no idea what Thatcher did to them.

    Labour tend to win in poorer areas because we are the only party that sticks up for lower income people and because Tory votes mostly come from disgusting, selfish morons who vote for them in order to preserve their wealth, and obviously these people exist in lower numbers in the poorer areas.

    It could be something to do with what happened to these areas during the last series of Conservative governments...

    New schools were built,
    I was quite happy with the state schools that I attended in the 90s and the standard of education that I received there.

    the NHS improved drastically,
    Figures were fiddled and waiting lists manipulated.

    the minimum wage was introduced,
    98% of working people were already on £3.60+ an hour before the minimum wage came in.

    museums were opened up for free of charge,
    But it's not free is it?

    pensions rose,
    lol.

    Labour tend to win in poorer areas because we are the only party that sticks up for lower income people
    You stick up for lower income people and then you keep them down by making being poor comfortable instead of engendering aspiration, which is what the coalition government intends to do.

    Because, and every working class/Labour voter will tell you this, Labour cares more about the individual needs of people before the whole countrys (where the economic demographic is biased towards the middle and upper classes). Wheras the the Tories care more about the country as a whole ie how strong the pound is and how much GDP we have etc. To answer your question, the Tories' constituencies are often in the more salubrious if you like areas (but "poor" doesn't equate to bad community) because they care more about pounds and not people

    :rofl: state schools unfunded, under the last tory government yes they way
    Can't say I noticed.

    thats a lie, 18 months waiting list under a tory government down to 18 weeks under later, not much fiddled there, 2 weeks if you are seen as a cancer patient, the tories want to remove that
    My grandfather has cataracts. After undergoing tests he was told to go away and come back when the cataracts have got worse. He is waiting, but he's not on the waiting list.

    Those are the sort of manipulative tricks Labour used to give the illusion they've improved the NHS. With the exception of technological and medicinal advancements which would have happened anyway whoever was in government, the NHS is still the same as always.

    minimum wage is so much more than that, we need a living wage which would be about £7 a hour, minimum wage is a great move for this country
    £7 an hour!? Watch as the price of everything rises, making it completely pointless.

    :rofl: as if the coalition are doing anything, unemployment on the rise, welfare being cut, a lack of understand of the whole system, but its far to easy to go oh labour LOL welfare, while the last tory government pretty much put a million of welfare without caring, they want to keep the poor poor
    If you look at the graphs unemployment peaked and then fell just as quickly as it rose during the Tory recessions. It's not permanent.

    Wait, wait... You're probably the biggest Tory nut-job on TSR, and you can't answer this question?

    How can you believe in such fundamentalist ideals and, yet, know nothing about politics? Are you Tory because Mummy and Daddy are?

    I ****ing hate ignorant people like you who pretend to believe in something so adamantly, yet know nothing about what they believe in...

    Do you know what the Tory and Labour differences are. What they support etc.?

    I'm no politics student... but, seriously...

    Most people arent poor the word or rather the term is "less better off" or "low income" just like we arent rich just simply "fortunate" Have you heard of a place called Ealing? It is not a ****hole.
