Poll gains a knee-jerk reaction
2:42pm Monday 21st May 2012 in Readers' Letters
I AM surprised at the Labour gains in the recent local elections.
I remember the Labour Chancellor handing over the keys of the Treasury and saying: “Im sorry. there is no money.”
This election is a knee-jerk reaction to the medicine we are all about to get.
After many years in office the Labour government let in, without any check, millions of immigrants, flooding the job market.
We have lost our national identity and become citizens of an unwanted state.
But you don’t want to know the truth – its boring. To get the necessary votes I am assured John Prescott went around kicking butts. Even Tony Blair might return – that’s a terrible thought.
I notice the local manifesto recommends taking on the pensioners. There’s a thought. The next general election will sort out the men from the boys so watch with interest.
