"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Polls To Raise A Smile

A UK-wide poll shows that 60% of voters give the government either “not very much” or no credit whatsoever for their management of the economy. 23% of voters give them some credit, while 17% give Labour a lot of credit.
Majorities of Conservative supporters (92%), and non-aligned voters (70%) attribute none or very little of the positive economic news to the government, while just under half of natural Labour supporters (48%) give the government a lot of credit. Liberal Democrat supporters were split, with 51% giving Labour some or a lot of credit, and 49% giving them not very much or no credit.  Not only that, but 65% of voters think the chances of a positive change in the fortunes of Labour is either very unlikely or non-existent. 23% think that it is a possibility, while only 5% of the public think that it is likely.
Definitely my kind of poll.

  1. I won't be surprised if Labour do win the next election, in fact in some ways I'd like them to win.

    They should be there to answer for the disaster they have created, and then to disappear forever. Don't be fooled, you can only print money so long as Mugabe found out.

  2. "I won't be surprised if Labour do win the next election, in fact in some ways I'd like them to win."

    The trouble with such a scenario is they will continue to take what little will be left. Nah, they need a good, solid kicking now.

  3. Yes, we can't afford another 4/5yrs of these Labour policies - they've all but got the country on its knees as it is.

  4. Don't wish it on us, Editor - Brown has already shown his contempt by clinging on for the whole five years, he would surely do it again - five more years of their legislation? Don't give them the bloody chance, it would still a victory for them - and I don't want to give Brown the satisfaction of actually winning an election
