I'm afraid that his pledges mean absolutely nothing as they will never get in as long as their backsides point downwards.

True, but might the others pinch the idea?

For definate Brown won't. They would probably divert the charges to themselves to add to the doubling of council tax, the rises in Ni, the over 100 new taxes introduced, the highest ever petrol taxes, the new £1,000 road tax on new cars and the biggest debt this country has ever been in including world war 2 debt.

 

I can't think of one single reason anyone should vote for labour.

But amazingly, millions still do!

 

It is beyond me as well - the two with some of the most common sense policies so far seem to be UKIP and Lib Dems - but I'm one of the millions of people who are effectively dis-enfranchised by this current voting system :x

I saw the silliest thing just now on BBC Politics show. He was talking to some people who run a car auction in Northern Ireland and was told that people vote for certain parties depending on what religion they are and nothing will shake that.

So he asked "would you ever consider changing your vote if a policy was in your favour?" to which the answer was "no".

 

He then asked if any of them ever read a manifesto or any of the campaining parties policies to which the answer again was "no, we just vote for who we vote for".

 

That has surely to be the most stupid mentality ever.

I can't think of one single reason anyone should vote for labour.

 

I would vote Labour, as a socialist. I don't believe that the current way capitalism is run, works for enough people. There are challenges ahead, which will test the way many people think about the type of politics they prefer.

 

There was an interesting programme on BBC news I think about the challenges that will happen when robots are fully able to run warehouses and factories, with very few humans employed. The businesses that will run these, won't have many consumers to sell their products to, as they will be on social security, having been replaced by robots. For example within 20 or 30 years, it may be possible for robots to fully assemble a car and to then test drive it. Capitalism is about maximising a return on money invested, with as little state intervention as possible.

 

Labour won 3 elections, 2 of which were by a landslide. This was during the period in which the tax rises you mention were implemented. So they were obviously very popular or the other parties were not offering an alternative.

 

What you don't offer is a comparison with other countries during the period Brown was chancellor. If you provided a comparison, you will find that many countries implemented very similar taxation changes.

 

I try to stay a way from Politics on CAG, as I don't think it is really the right forum for a debate of any standard. There are better forums for politics, where you have anoraks with all the information at their fingertips.
