If Labour Supporters Vote Green En-Masse Tomorrow We Might Save The Labour Party

There is no incentive to vote Labour while Gordon Brown is at the helm and every incentive for Labour supporters to vote elsewhere especially if it gets rid of him.

It is now possible that no national newspaper will support Labour this election and the party deserves no-one's vote.

As Jonathan Freedland puts it;
"I think progressives, even those congenitally used to voting Labour, are entitled to register their disgust at the ballot box on Thursday. A vote for the Greens would make a lot of sense: utterly untainted by the expenses slime, they would instantly take their place in a Green bloc in Strasbourg that would have the heft to get things done. Why not exploit the proportional system for European elections and vote your conscience for once?

With that done, then those who would always prefer a British government of the centre-left rather than one of the centre-right will have to turn their attention to the larger struggle – the ­battle to save the Labour party".
I couldn't have put it better myself.


  1. The Greens are right wing and their polices tally with the BNP in many ways. I would not touch them with a barge pole.

  2. chris, can you elaborate on that comment please?
