Labour have said they don’t want my vote. So where am I supposed to go now?, so writes Rosie Fletcher.
Labour are saying that to thousands of people. Not explicitly, but implicitly, by accepting so much of the Tory agenda.
Thousands of former Labour voters have said, “Thanks, but no thanks.” The labour party can continue their journey, but they travel without us, because we are travelling in a different direction. We will not be made to feel guilty. We do not vote in fear.
In the Bedford and Kempston constituency there is one candidate who is standing for the 99% against the 1%.
That candidate is Ben Foley the Green Party candidate.
Imagine if disillusioned Labour, and the anti-Clegg voters, moved to Green.
Now that would make for an interesting election. But there is more to it than that. Take a look at the Green Party Policies, then you get it.
Expect to hear them squeal soon, “Only Labour can offer real opposition”. No they can’t, they’ve forgotten what they came to do.
And it’s the same in the local elections. The colour is Green. The Party is Green. The name is Lucy Bywater.
