To me the nub of this argument is very simple.
I think that those that wish to occupy the moral high ground should stop and consider that, while they may be prosperous enough to be able to contemplate another tory government and all its cuts in public services, there are many in this country who are not and for whom the Tories winning the election on Thusday would be a personal disaster.
I believe that when making their decision the electorate are entitled to consider the future of health education sure start etc etc are the issues of primary importance to us.
Mistakes may or may not have been made by the Labour Government post 9/11 - history will tell. In the meantime I am more than happy to support a government whose values and policies are intended to be for the benefit of the many and the fight against a tory philosophy that is based upon privelige for the few.
