Do the Tories really deserve to be on 40% of the vote and heading for a landslide victory?
They are at least as guilty as Labour in the expenses scandal and probably more so. Servant's quarters, duck islands, indian rugs, and cleaning moats are some of the TORY claims. For every Alistair Darling flipping homes there is a George Osborne.
Labour are at 24% in the polls and deserve to be, but why are the Tories not down there with them?
The Lib Dems should be doing better, but having an 'invisible man' as leader isn't helping them.
Those tempted to just sit on their hands in protest at the expenses scandal are just playing into the political hands of these scoundrels. To really punish them VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE - the Greens are untarnished, the Lib Dems have not made any outrageous claims.
But above all else, you Tory supporters have got to take a long hard look at yourselves. Are you really angry about MP's expenses, or is it all bluff?
They say that it is sex scandals that hurt the Tories more and financial scandals that hurt Labour. The logic being we all expect the Tories to be rich bastards milking the system. Is that why the Tories are getting away with it? Is that why Tory voters can happily keep voting Tory despite knowing their MPs are crooks? Someone please explain to me why the Tories are getting away with this?
