there is always a so called mess left by the old party.  they use it as an excuse quite commonly.  just remember politicians rarely do what they promise to do.  they are in it for themselves and their friends and families.

Labour knew the positioon of the country under Tory rule before the inherited what they call a mess, they put together their 3 and 5 year plans based on what they inherit and yet where are we now... education classes with still more than 30 pupils, class room asistants being trained to teach to keep budgets down, god knows haom amny imigrants I am paying for to live in this country.


Contrary to what you might beleive, a government can't change policy overnight, or make great change overnight. The Civil Service has more control over the country that I think you give it credit, and its not likely to spend 18 years implementing Tory policy only to willing undo it all again for Labour.

whos lookin back to the old days now?

we have the fourth strongest economy on earth , we are a TINY island. I think from economic diasaster under the toies to that position is just one of the many great things labour have done.

Lowest unemployment in Scotland and Britain as a whole for nearly a century.

Controlable interest rates

NHS finally beggining to work efficiently (helped by immigrant doctors and nusres).

What days were better ?


under the tories we get massive interest rates an repossession

privatisation (disasterous t the public services)

Mass unemployement of 3 Million (higher than any other time in the modern era)

A few rich laughing at the working classes and urban areas whilst tehir pockets are lined.

Poll Tax

Economic Collapse. (black...what day was that again)


Proud days warden.

What a good job Blair has done for education - produced a generation of people stupid enough to vote for him.

Bush is a stupid religious fanatic and bases some of his policies on his religious belief.   Yeah you shouldnt of re-elected him. Although very good for going into iraq, I supported that. thumbsup.gif

Although Blair is a good priminister and has done well overall is several issues and I support the war in Iraq.

LD were a choice for me, but I went with Labour.

Tories,  All they did throughout the campaign was call blair a liar, stupid move and people calling others liars don't belong in politics.

David Blunkett has returned to the cabinet I see. The man was forced to resign through blatant misuse of his office and now he is back again as if nothing had happened. Top Tories have been sent to jail for less, he actually came to Bradford to asses the damage after the Riots, what the hell did we waste tax payers money for, he is blind for gods sake how can he make an assesment... I suppose that is the tories fault also.

The NHS is that efficient that waiting lists are longer, you have to book a week in advance to see a Doctor, hopital hygene is out of control, the rate of infection has increased. Shortage of professional nurses.

Education standrad dropped.

Classroom assistants taking on extra responsibility to assist teachers due to budgets cuts.

Larger class sizes and labour promised less than 30 to a class.

Defocit budgets in Schools.

Lowest number of Police on the beat, crime increase the list is endless.. but agian this is probably the fault of the tories.

I will go one further,

We have more doctors and nurses leaving this country to work abroad than we have comming in,the reason is TARGETS and burocrasey, no.gif

Police chiefs have asked the home secetary to let them get on with policing the streets ,what did they get in response,,,,more time to sit behind a desk filling in forms..........more targets and burocrasey

Unemployment stands at 1 million....realy laugh.gif what about the hundreds of thousands of 16 to 18 year olds who dont get any benefit ,they also dont get mentioned in the figures and the 2 and a half million that are on incapasety benefit that would make the unemployment figures just under 4 million

need i go on ,but no doubt that will be the tories fault tongue.gif

Labour - Grossly negligent, have run healthcare and education into the ground.  Led by a charismatic man who for all his faults does actually command my respect, and is a strong leader.  Shouldn't have gone to war, it was purely political and he used hysteria and too promote it and convince us it was a good thing, when he knew Saddam had no WMD's.  Sudan would have been a far better start, as would countless other countries in more desperate situations than Iraq was in, which is now worse than it started out almost.  Same with Afghanistan.

Tories - Absolute no-hopers, continually led by buffoons with all the charisma of a piece of broccolli.  I could never imagine them holding power.  Have unrealistic goals that they would not be able to deliver on if they were in term, even more so than labour.  I like their stance on crime though - no tolerance.

Lib Dems - The "nice" party.  In my opinion they won't be a real force yet for the next few terms, though they are making great inroads in terms of popularity and seats.  Led by a man who is actually a likeable, decent bloke.  Also haven't really got their goals straight.  One for the future, but yet to mature.

So, there's really no 'good' option, you just have to make the best of what you've got.  I voted Lib Dems to take away the majority of conservatives in our area, and take seats from labour. disgust.gif

Labour- Who have put something like 60 billion pounds into the NHS service.

Remember that it isn't the actual goverment who runs and organises the NHS but the management groups within the NHS. If there has been a problem with the NHS these are the people to blame. It doesn't help when all this money is pushed into the NHS and the big wig consultants etc decide to have a massive payrise out of it. Again this is to do with management sytsems and not the 'Labour' Party.
