Can you tell the difference?
Talk about dragging out the Election right to the bitter end. I am getting the feeling that people are getting a little jaded over if and when someone is going to drive up the Mall and ask to call an Election. People are saying lets get on with it. I am completely “Polled out”. So much I don’t even pay the slightest attention to them any more. When I hear another Poll, I just think of the Bradley Effect.
At present, from what I can see, it’s hard to tell the difference between the Parties apart from the different colours they use. The centre ground is so crowed that to a lot of people they seem to be all making the same points. They all claim to stand for the people and all blame the others for not doing the job or wont be able to do the job if they get elected. All sides are using this fear tactic, you know the “don’t vote for them as you know they are bad-not up to it-never done anything” line.
All I see in the news is not about their Policies, but who is bankrolling what Party. We have Lords Ashcroft and Paul, The Union Unite (just one of many union-labour sponsorships) and of course Michael Brown. All sides have Non-Doms. Labour has always been funded by the Unions, so nothing new there. I would rather some Non-Dom-Union fund the Party than using my Tax to fund their Campaigns.
If I asked 3 questions would those PPC’s be able to answer them without reverting back to the blame game, or just be able to answer them straight, and why they are standing for Election under that Party. I would like to think they could, but from what I have seen they probably can’t resist the urge to blame the other Parties. British Politics seem to be more about blaming another Party, than actual real positive Policies.
There are a lot of undecided votes out there. This Election will be decided on those swing votes that will only make up their minds when they are standing in the Poll Booths looking at the names and thinking “now who shall I pick?”
So here are my 3 questions for all those PPC’s and the loyal Party faithful.
- How would you improve the Economy, and how would you safeguard it in the future.
- Education. (no need to write it 3 times)
- Europe and safeguarding the ancient right of Habeas Corpus
And a Bonus Question of What would your Party do for Cornwall.
