After having tasted the blood drawn from withdrawing his knife from his brothers back, Ed is now turning on the Unions. In principle this is appalling, the unions were the last real working class link that the Labour Party had that distinguished them from a party of mediocrity. However the Unions have changed as well, full of career men with big speeches but very little else; all too happy to keep the status quo. So to be fair Labour and the unions are still a good fit, as neither of them really represent the interests of the working class, let alone do anything that will actually improve their lives.
Will this make Labour more electable? Maybe but who do they represent, not people like me anymore.
I still believe that if 20% or less turned up for elections, how could the Govt say they were there by the will of the people. Spoiling your paper gets counted and gives the system a credibility, where as not voting at all is a dismissal of the system completely and a desire for something new. Apathy appears only due to the futility to what is put in front of you. Belief and confidence in the ballot box has been destroyed, now it needs to be highlighted more.
DON’T VOTE, DON’T SPOIL YOUR PAPER – LETS REDUCE THE VOTING POPULATION TO UNDER 20%.
