Why are Labour and their supporters so rabid?

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Speedy, Apr 15, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It's been getting to me for a while this. From the behaviour of their 'communications' (muck spreading and personal attacks) department to their supporters who, whenever there is any kind of radio call in show, flood the lines with messages of support and put downs of 'Tory boys' and 'posh' people. Yet the Conservatives never resort to this, or at least never on the scale of Labour efforts. It ofen appears that they are one step away from asking their supporters to bludgeon to death anyone who does not agree with them with crowbars in the street. All in all pretty scary stuff. But how do they get away with it?
     
  2. Another moody thread full of bollox. I'm a Labour supporter of 30 years standing just to make clear where I'm coming from. You should find something better to do with your day other than post this sh1te.
     
    • Bullshit Bullshit x 1
  3. Desperation.
    They have no policies of any worth and they know half the country hates them. The only real thing they have to induce the electorate to vote for them is if they can instill a fear of the alternatives into voters.
    In many areas its working.
     
  4. Desperation is usually pretty ugly to see !
     
  5. Very good.
    What does the Labour Party of 30 years ago have in common with this shower of corrupt thieves?
    Since when did the Labour Party stand for corruption and lies, because thats all they are now.
    They are dishonest and dishonourable, why do you still support them?
    I'm not being argumentative, they are genuine questions.
     
  6. I Agree and they are being allowed to get away with it by commentators

    Personally I believe the politburo is winning the proganda war - every Labour politician screams exactly the same message to the tv camera - namely don't vote Tory or else the world will end blah blah whilst never putting forward their own ploicies or accepting any responsibility for the last 12 years.

    Apparently they have no funds hence why they have to do their advertising on the cheap through tv news broadcasts hence the same message from everyone of the buggers.

    I'm afraid tonights leader debate will be exactly the same - I don't know who to believe but am pissed of listening to the labour scare tactics every day whach are designed to get a hung parliment as they will not win outright.

    Overall the information we are being fed by all the parties is very poor and all of the manifestos were full of lies - I can only hope the newspapers have some juicy sleeze they will release on the eve of the election to spice it up a bit!
     
  7. Is this an ironic post?

    Not ironic at all Speedy, just an example of exactly what you were saying. As soon as you made a negative remark about the lying bastards who call themselves 'New' Labour you have someone jumping down your throat.

    Perfect bite IMO. :D
     
  9. It was so perfect a bite, it has to be a wah.

    Start with the socialist mindset: "We hold liberal views. Therefore, anyone who disagrees with us is illiberal."

    Once you accept that, all the rest of use are good for is shouting at or being ridiculed.

    I had it the other week with someone banging on about the Tories and what was done to the miners (both sides of my family were miners, by the way).

    I asked what this government has done since 1997 to support 'traditional' heavy industry in this country. I wasn't allowed to get to the end of the question. Several times over. I certainly didn't get a cogent response.
     
  11. The problem is rgjbloke is that as you say you have been a Labour supporter for 30 years and cannot see how low they have sunk, how out of touch they are and how hated they have become by alot of people in this once great country of ours. I would now not vote Labour if they where the only party left on the planet never mind the UK. Wake up and smell the coffee. :(
     
  12. My point about the radio phone-ins is valid though. Almost every person who calls in is a Labour supporter. I was, until recently, of the opinion that the Conservative supporters were all at work and couldn't call in, and after the debacle of the last election where the local papers were full of identikit 'fill-in-the-blanks' Labour supporting correspondence swamping the letters pages it beggers the imagination that people so dumb they can't write their own letters or form their own opinions can be allowed to dominate the media like this.
     
  13. Or just proving the OPs point in such a brilliant fashion that I may print off the page and frame it!
    :D

    You assume that those letters were actually written by the great unwashed and didn't come from central office...
     
  15. Most of the ones I know aren't in the least bit rabid. A large proportion of them are thick as shit umpteenth generation voters for whom it's a community act to vote the red rosette, but the more thoughtful ones are simply tired of the way the UK works. They're usually disillusioned with the whole 'New Labour' project which they (accurately in my view) see as nothing more than a marketing campaign to get Tory policies in regardless of how the electorate voted.

    If there actually was a realistic alternative between the two main parties then we might see a different voting pattern, but in the main sheer fear of the label 'Conservative' means they're always likely to vote Labour - not to get Labour in but to keep the Tories out. Absolutely idiotic, but there it is.
