When we witnessed the plight of Ed Balls trying to reply to the Chancellor's 'triumphant' Autumn Statement last week the media will have you believe that his career has been destroyed. When we read of the so called coke snorting Rev Flowers heading the Co-Op bank which has for decades funded the Labour Party. When we read that Labour and Unite tried to rig the Falkirk By-Election. When we read that 13 years of Blair/Brown took us into illegal wars and almost destroyed the economy of the country then surely,surely nobody left would be stupid enough to vote for Labour led by a man who politically destroyed his own brother.
Every fabric of my political acumen tells me that nothing about Labour and the Unions is trustworthy. They are a party of sleazebags almost as bad as the LibDems. Therefore the next election should be fought out between the Tories and UKIP?
Hoewever a recent poll for two key marginals paid for by a UKIP supporter arrived in the mainstream media. In Great Grimsby Labour are miles ahead (40%) and in Dudley North they are even further ahead (45%) with both the Tories and UKIP toiling approx 20% behind! The LibDems are suffering from the leadership of Nick Clegg (2% in Great Grimsby)!
Just who are these people who are ignoring all the evidence of electoral fraud and sleaze to continue to vote Labour. Well they don't read the papers, most of them cannot follow politics closely so do we have a lot of people fearing that they may lose benefits?
Many of these traditional working class Labour supporting areas have also been heavily affected by immigration. So perhaps the immigrants are voting to keep their avenues open and their benefits intact. The Conservative candidate for the 2015 elections is Afzal Amin and since 2010 the Conservative vote has collapsed in Dudley North by 12% where UKIP has advanced to 14%. The Lib Dems have lost 9% and Labour has gained 6%.
If the polls of these two key marginals are typical then, despite their appalling record, Labour will win hands down and we will once again been confronted by the political lunatic asylum! It is clear that to prevent this UKIP and the Conservatives will have to fathom out a plan for unity. It will not happen however with David Cameron supporting the EU.
