Why not? My opinion is that the tories are not going to be able to keep the standard of living the working class can enjoy, sending us back to the 80's until i see some proof they aint going to try and screw me and my hard earned cash, my opinion is staying firm. If the only oppositon is Labour, then so be it. They werent that bad, sure they may have been immigrant benefit scournageing buttheads.

Oh my.. I don't have a leg to stand on :/

Meh. /tip hat.

Of course there is going to be cuts, get realistic guys. Our debt is not much better than Greece's, you can't blame conservatives for amending a situation forced by labour. All the main parties were making promises to protect certain sectors (NHS, Law and order etc etc), but whitehall was contradicting them at every step saying "no thats simply not possible". It has to be done and will be done. Thank god the conservatives are willing to do it now while Labour was willing to put the country at stake, trying to buy themselves into power.

This is the problem when we live in a country where large portions of its population are employed by the government. In 13 years labour have fostered a dependence on the state, where the private sector, the "real economy" was steadily being pushed out by state sector. Its this very reason which almost won Gordon the election: Who is going to vote against the man who's promising them a job or a handout, regardless of the wellbeing of the country?

Goddamn you Labour, goddamn you.

tbh

I wasn't a fan of blair's new labour, and i think socialism, although brilliant in theory simply doesn't work in the real world. There's also evidence to suggest that the divide between rich and poor under labour's actually grown rather than decreased. Durrp durrp.

What happened under thatcher in the 80s was going to happen eventually anyway, with potentially more damaging results if left a lot longer. Thatcher simply addressed the issues promptly despite putting thousands out of work, the work was finite and unsustainable. Also moving towards a bank/buisness oriented economy's benefited the country greatly, only poor management by chancellor brown caused this recession to hit us particularly hard, not the system put in by thatcher. I can't stand people who say "all this is because of thatcher", if we would've managed the economy and the banks better, we would be well into our way of recovery and with a much stronger pound against the now wobbly euro.

Labour's put us in a false sense of comfort, we've been lent money we and the banks dont have and the government has spent a bomb. That and selling our gold reserves at the lowest price we've had.

tl;dr thatcher was the best thing to happen to this country since churchill + lloyd george.
