Like a Hollywood villain (but without the maniacal laughter) the mask of Nu Labour was peeled back to reveal…well The Labour Party actually.
The touchy feely, cool Britannia, things can only get better era was conveniently shoved to one side. By raising the upper tax rate to 50%, a line in the sand was firmly drawn.
If you think all those rich bast*rds who got us into this mess should pay our way out of it then Labour is the party to vote for.
Not forgetting of course that they will also clean up the matter of MP’s expenses. Not surprisingly this didn’t get all party backing. After all Turkeys don’t vote for Christmas.
Back to Basics politics. If you don’t like the well off, vote Labour. If you are well off vote Conservative.
For the 50% who couldn’t give a toss about who runs the country, it is time you did. It may not matter to you, but it certainly matters to your children and grand children. All of the cards are on the table, it is up to you how and by whom they are played.
That is if we still have a stake this time next year and we are not just a busted flush.
