Why can't labour voters realise that the economic mess we are currently in is due to labour and their relaxed bank regulations which has consequently caused the banking crisis; this led the conservatives to try and pick up the pieces by reducing the budget deficit and turning it into a budget surplus so the government can tackle the mountain of national debt on our shoulders.
But to achieve this austerity has to happen; cuts HAVE to be made so when labour supporters complain about the cuts that are currently happen what they do not realise that it was the fault of their beloved Labour Party.
But it is no surprise to me that there are so many negative opinions of the Tories because the demographic of labour supporters consists of naive uni students complaining about tuition fees (failing to acknowledge how generous the repayment terms are) and parasites that live off the welfare state.
Most of the british populous have recognised this and have realised that a Tory government would be much better than a labour and snp coalition that would drive our country to the ground in an economic discord.
We cannot spend what we don't have, and is why we need to recover the economy because a good economy will reward you with a fair policies, tax rates etc.
Another factor could be the EU but I won't be going in to that for now.

Correct. Labour continued Thatcherite deregulation, as the Conservatives would have done.
Miliband wasn't a Blairite and a narrow victory would have ensured a departure from that.
Idiot rhetoric about benefit claimants is completely irrelevant.

The Tories would have matched Labour's spending and deregulated more.
You have one thing right though; austerity has to happen. Labour realised that and tried to integrate austerity into a fiscal policy which protected key areas; a reasonable attempt at balance it has to be said. Unfortunately Labour's acceptance of economic reality has lodst Scotland to the looney left of the SNP forever.
Ain't that an irony.
