Why Owen Jones is wrong to urge people to vote for Labour

So Owen urges us to vote Labour to keep the Tories out, and when a Labour government is in power, we can all put it under pressure to do the nice things instead of the nasty things – like continuing to implement cuts and austerity, applying a token plaster to the semi-privatised NHS and ‘balancing the budget’ – which is at best an economically illiterate policy. Its a bit like asking someone to vote for Terminator instead of Godzilla on the basis that there will be marginally less collateral damage.
