GUEST,achmelvich BS: electing a new labour leader (311* d) RE: BS: electing a new labour leader 18 Aug 15

of those who expressed a preference 24% backed the tories in the last election and the government are acting in the interests of a group much smaller than that -many of whom do not live here or do all they can to avoid paying tax here.
if we had a government that insisted on providing a free, well-financed health service; support for workers' rights and for those out of work; affordable housing; no tuition fees ; support for our young people ; properly funded education system etc etc then would you say this was not acting in the interests of the majority of the population?

yes, we 'lefties' have been banging on about this for decades but we never meet any coherent argument to dissuade us. probably because they are just basic middle of the road, conservative even, politics.

yes it is exasperating, we probably are patronising but if you look at the press and the bbc government broadcasts then it is hard to understand how people can fall for the same old nonsense and bias over and over again.

those of you supporting the government do have a role to play here too - get out and sell your support of bigger bonuses for bankers, more privatisation for the NHS, more debt for students, less tax for the wealthy, higher rents on scabby flats for your kids, less job security and more war. you may find that your views are not as popular as you think -and represent far less than 24% of your community.
