In the aftermath of the local elections and the Crewe and Nantwich by-election, Labour Ministers are putting a spin their devastatingly poor results. They say it is all down to the economy stupid - the credit crunch - it's not their fault. What a complete and utter load of rubbish. It has very little to do with the economy - it's all down to Labour policy.
Where should we start? How many voters did Labour lose over the Lisbon Treaty? How many for the closing of our post offices? How many for the shutting down our local A&E wards? How many for closing our local Schools? How many for shutting down our local Maternity Wards? How many for Shutting our local Police Stations at night? How many for stealth taxes? How many for the 10p tax fiasco? How many for uncontrolled immigration? How many for social decay? How many for the loss of 25 million bank account details? How many for the threat of bin tax? How many for the threat of road charging? How many for letting out prisoners early because they failed to build enough prisons? How many for instructing Judges to hand out pathetic sentences because the prisons are full? How many for the smoking ban?
Did you know that 1,000 primary schools have been shut down since 1997? Or that we now have 32,000 less hospital beds - the equivalent to 60 average size hospitals? Or that many of our PCs have been replaced with PCSOs who have next to no powers and the government claim police numbers are up? Did you know that government crime figures show that crime is reducing, while official police figures show that crime is increasing across the board? Did you know that Labour Lords recently passed a bill getting rid of the need for a referendum on our entry into the Euro - another referendum promised by Labour that we won't be getting? Of course you do - that's why so many people voted Conservative recently.
Why the hell are a government who claim to be made up from the "party of the people" shutting down our schools and hospitals when the population is growing? This government's recent demise has little to do with the economy stupid - the damage was already done with an endless string of policies which have infuriated the voters. Even if the economy does turn around Labour are dead and buried. They have ridden rough shod over the people thinking they were untouchable because of their large majority - How wrong they were.
