    The Conservatives, having always been backed by those with wealth and privilege, are of course completely in touch with "real life".
    To be fair Andy, Labour does have the backing of several wealthy people. Such as Lakshmi Mittal, possibly the richest man living in London?

    I wasn't denying that, I just resent Don_Scott's suggestion that left wingers are detached (not that I believe New Labour are left wing, but this is another matter).

    Ok fair enough. Tbh there are people in all corners of politics who cling to their ideology, and seem pretty detached and out-of-touch. I personally resent Margot James's performance on Question Time. That confiscation of phones thing is beyond fail.

    I never suggested that. I said that the leftist "intelligensia" are detached.

    You're all, frankly, pathetic. Once glance at the politics forum and it's full of left-bashing threads, is this the new hip thing? You all just look like morons.

    That would be a delightfully ironic turn of events.

    I hope they all leave and go to live ine of those of lovely true glorious socialist country like China or Cuba (beacons of democracy and liberty of course) where they will probably be executed for the views they express. What is this whole Eton thing, if someone said 'I don't want a cabinet full of people who went to 'Scumbag High Comprehensive' there would be outcry from the left.

    They [the left] do, however, have a band of extremist attack dogs which the Tories simply lack.
    I think the Daily Mail does the job very well on behalf of the Tories.

    I have to say, as a Guardian reader, I thought the front page today was ridiculous- 'Knife crime up, government lying, end is nigh' etc. Usually its not as bad as some RW stuff but it just annoyed me.

    There will be a lot of soul-searching in the same way there was with the Tories in 1997. Over time, I imagine that there will be a turnaround - particularly in the old Labour heartlands and on university campuses where, prior to 1997 Labour was quite strong. I dare say that the trade unions might grow in strength as some see them to be a source of organised opposition - especially to a party in power that they owe no allegiance to.

    My signature is true
    Well okay, but this actually kinds of proves my point. I'd be the first person to jump at someone for having negative views on homosexuality, and then I instantly get called 'left wing'. Then when I criticize or say something bad about Islam I must be a 'right wing moron'. It's worse in America of course, you should read an Ann Coulter book. I've had debates with Americans, and when you say you're not for the Iraq war, you're instantly a 'left winger' wtf. Besides, that was from Urban Dictionary, it might have been a complete joke but a lot of folk are really simplistic like that, and I've been here for a while now, and it certainly isn't as 'left wing' as I thought it would be.

    I wouldnt say Labour have messed things up!

    It is a bad time to be in government with this financial crisis and they are trying to sort it out! all the policies they make come under criticism from the conservatives yet the conservatives in my eyes arent making any better options or saying how they will save the day!

    The government was doing a great job and then the crash happened and that is there only downfall! The same would have happened to a conservative government and your being silly if you dont think it would have!
    I've already said the Conversatives were just as bad, pfft. I think your views on Labour is rather silly, but there you go.

    It's only a bit of humor :P

    It's more poking at the fact that you can't say anything slightly un-PC without being forced to eat your own ********.

    I would have prefer John McCain win the US election tbh. Now that would have been a laugh.
