The battle lines are being drawn
The Tories are on their usual war-horse about benefits dependency and all that right-y type hating-everyone-in-the-public-sector-or-close-to-benefits line that they trot out every election. Ok, that’s what they do. They get the core vote enraged to get them out to vote. Where are the left’s things to encourage the core vote? Where are our things for hating highly paid bankers and the like? Hmmm? I still think that the Labour leadership are too scared of being Labour and thus aren’t willing to do the sorts of things that will energise the core vote, while the Tories are focusing on their core vote as well as trying to be all soft and nice.
