Why labour won't win the election.

Watching bbc news last night and they have one of their reporters in Grimbsy asking people who they will vote.

Grimsby, a town which voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU – something like 70% I believe. Why would they pick there I wonder...

As part of their interview they ask a big beardy chap how life has been for him, he’s been in homeless shelters with his wife for years and has really struggled.

Guess who he is voting for?

Conservatives.

Why?

“I like a lot of what Boris says"

Another woman – has been living in poverty with her family for years – “not sure who I will vote for"

Wtf is wrong with these people? Who do they think is responsible for the increase in poverty, in foodbanks, how the f… have the conservatives managed to get the people they hate the most to vote with this.

Brainless b@stards man.

This article gives a little insight

People will believe what they want to believe. You can look at the facts if you like - a decade of Tory government has been bad for the economy (austerity was a political ideology, not a necessity, and one that economists have been almost universal in condemning), bad for the NHS, bad for education, and bad for the ordinary working person. The "radical" manifesto that Labour are standing on now would be seen as a moderate, centre-left, social democratic manifesto in most other European countries. But facts come from experts, and like Gove said - this country has had enough of experts. You just need to look at Farage peddling the same discredited myths about immigrants putting pressure on the health service to see how willfully ignorant people can be of the truth when it doesn't suit their instinctive opinions. In short, we're fvcked, because we deserve to be fvcked, because we're going to vote in a government we know is going to fvck us.

All that said, I will, of course, be voting SNP

Scottish Labour have fvcked themselves by trying to out-Tory the Tories.
