Voters - We're Not Stupid
Although all the main parties would seem to think otherwise.
Cost cutting = people will get sacked. We understand this, no matter how much you have us think differently.
I work in the leisure industry, I need people to be in well paying employment so that they can afford luxuries like golf. We have had a couple of difficult trading years already, and I can't see that any of the main parties are offering any real hope for the short term.
I will be voting on Thursday, and despite my misgivings over the Lib Dems energy policy, I will be voting for Nader Fekri. I am not worried that a surge of support for the Lib Dems will result in a hung parliament, the Bundestag operates well without an overall majority, the German economy is in a better shape than ours.
I do not feel that Labour have achieved many of their stated aims during their 3 terms, especially in terms of the much vaunted "Education, education, education" rallying cry. Despite the fact that Labour claim that around 40% of UK students now go on to university, we still have one of the lowest rates across Europe for children continuing in education after the age of 16*.
Perhaps it really is time for a sea change in UK politics.
