Despite their best intentions, their policies won't increase the wealth of poor people. Let me tell you why:

Increasing the minimum wage - on the surface it sounds like a good idea, but this discourages small businesses from setting up. Overall it means less businesses, less jobs, more people become unemployed and so you get more people on benefits. Unemployment has risen in every recent Labour Government - it has fallen massively in the current Conservative Government.

Banks don't like Labour Governments. We cannot change how capitalist societies operate, and it's a fact that whenever Labour go to borrow money they get a MUCH higher interest rate than the Conservatives. A vote for Labour means every single one of us ends up paying more money for the things our Government buys, because of the higher interest rate.

Labour increase inequality. That's right. Under every Labour Government, the gap between rich and poor widens. Here's why - http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debat...-under-labour/

And the strongest reason of all is that last time they destroyed the country financially.
They left the biggest financial mess you could imagine.

Labour need the world to operate differently in order for it to succeed - and they cannot realistically influence the world - the superpowers are the USA and China. Labour represent a well-adapted socialist stance in a capitalist world, whereas the Conservatives are better suited to our Global society.

Every left-wing Democratic Government crumbles its country - this is what has happened in Greece and Italy - the poor are literally dying of starvation there. The best way to have a left-wing party is by having a Communist State like they have in China, but we don't want that in the UK either!

If you've gotten to the end of this, well done! If you're still thinking about voting Labour, watch this -

I am a binman and I will be voting for the Conservatives.

If you actually are a binman, you're not poor, you'll be earning above the UK median.

Unemployment fell in the 97-01 Labour Govt and the 01-05 Labour Government.

Could you demonstrate the minimum wage increases unemployment? Unemployment fell when it was introduced, and has when it's risen.

Could you demonstrate when Labour has higher interest than the Conservatives?

Where did you get the data for this, I'd be interested to see it (unless you have just made up this 'fact' of course)

Nice touch 'I'm a bin man and I'll be voting tory' haha

' One day I decided that Labour will increase inequality and I thought that was bad, so I'm voting Tory who will do an even better job of increasing inequality '

Excuse me? No mate 1+1 does not equal 5.

The fact that you call China a communist state, demonstrates how little you seem to know about economics ideologies

If you want to see what prolonged left-wing rule is like in a developed country just look at Detroit. Are the poor doing well there?

The problem with big government to "help" the poor is that it means you have a to hire a lot of bureaucrats to do so and you end up with a situation where big government doesn't benefit the poor but rather the public sector at the expense of everyone else as they demand better and better wages even if the wider economy can't afford it.

Also governments that spend too much money (which is the tendency of most governments but there are degrees of this of course) end up having to inflate the money supply to pay for it which actually harms the poorest the most, as relative to everyone else, a loss in their purchasing power effects them the most.
