Why do people vote Labour?

Have your say

BM Stainrod (April 10), It’s you who should wake up and look at the broader picture.

David Cameron voted for the invasion of Iraq and then declared he would have done so even if he’d known in 2003 there were no weapons of mass destruction.

It was Margaret Thatcher who sold off the country’s assets very cheaply during the 1980s.

The Bank of England sold off Britain’s gold reserves at rock bottom prices in the early 1970s when the Tories were in power under Edward Heath.

Gordon Brown is the most successful Chancellor Britain ever had for delivering the longest period of sustained economic growth in modern times, before the bankers caused the great financial crash through arrogance, ignorance and greed.

Yes, Tony Blair allowed mass immigration to spiral out of control and endorsed political correctness. Mr Cameron pledged in 2010 to slash immigration to the tens of thousands. Since then, more than 260,000 have come to live in the UK.

Lots of people vote Labour because they believe in fairness.

Under Chancer (Chancellor) George Osborne, VAT increased to 20 per cent, Britain lost its AAA rating, sold off the Royal Mail for next to nothing and borrowed more in five years than Labour did in 13. Britain is now more than £1.4 trillion in debt.

Working families are £1,600 a year worse off, more and more are forced to rely on food banks, people are struggling on zero hours contracts and low wages and the bedroom tax has been brought in.

How can we all be better off in this country because of George Osborne’s record of failure and incompetence?
