On this site of course, the majority of us know that New Labour are 5th columnists out to destroy the country from within. Or are at least totally incompetent. So why do people I consider friends of mine, still support Labour? Even after 13 years of total rubbish? For example (and what prompted this post) a lady friend of mine joined a Labour Party support group on Facebook. I was shocked, not only does she seem intelligent but i'd at least expect her to go lib dem or greens or something if she couldn't stomach voting Tory. A further example also facebook related, was when a throwaway comment by me resulted in an essay sized attack on the tory party and appraisal of Labour from a teacher friend of mine. When pointing out a select few of Labours failures I was told this was because of Labour moving more towards the right! And were thus 'right-wing' failures, whatever that means! Of course he is a teacher and we all know that the public sector and civil service are in Labour's pocket. Also, a certain percentage of teachers are horrendous lefties anway. I remember being told at school by my biology teacher when i told her that I planned to join the Army that 'we should become like Switzerland and scrap the Army altogther'. Have Labour genuinely brainwashed people? Are the Tory Party actually considered worse than another 5 years of the champagne socialists? It is beyond my understanding how anyone thats half-intelligent and not a complete whet like loony lefty moonbat would ever vote Labour.
