He will re nationalise the railway , end the bed room tax, increase state pensions, stop the cut and enable employment to grow.

Must not for ed to sort out this mess and stop the nasty torys from making the rich richer and poor poorer

I don't think he's got it in him. I told the labour dudes who do the door to door them that I want to keep this town labour but if milliband was in charge at the general then I won't know who to vote for as I really don't think he's going to be able to do it.

Could he even hold his own in a fist fight? I think I could take him tbh hmm

He is an excellent orator and has some great ideas. I hate the way he is treated by the right wing press.

Next time I see my local Tory MP I am going to challenge him to a fistfight in order to sort out who is best to run the country hmm

Yanbu. It's just a shame that so many people are being put off voting labour purely because they're not keen on Milliband.
Agree with you wholeheartedly on the revolting attitude of the rich Tory government who couldn't give a fuck about poor people getting even poorer, it's simply not relevant enough to their lives for them to care about.

Have the Tories got enough money saved then for Labour to come back in and spend it all again?

WooWooOwl Fri 01-Aug-14 20:54:48

Erm, yeah, ok then.

If only it were that simple.

the gap between rich and poor was widened significantly during dear Tony's regime

Oh bog off.

Trust a man who is unable to eat a bacon sarnie properly to run the country? YABU.

didn't we learn anything from the last disastrous Labour government?

Finola1step Fri 01-Aug-14 20:57:00

I saw him today in Hastings. He was being filmed, talking to a reporter, meeting local business people (ice cream seller). Seemed... Dare I say it... More commanding in real life. Much more decisive looking than he is portrayed.

I had a slight glimmer of hope. Only slight but a glimmer nonetheless.

To which the Tories applauded. They certainly didn't oppose the labour spending plans.

And the gap gets wider.

sinisterfish Fri 01-Aug-14 20:59:10

yeah we learnt that they are better than the tories grin

RandomDiva Fri 01-Aug-14 20:59:30

Knew someone would talk about the bacon sandwich. Sucked in by the Tory press you see.

Davidtennantmistress Fri 01-Aug-14 20:59:39

Yeah brilliant, how's he going to pay for it I wonder? Increase spending again raise the ceiling on our nations debt maybe?!? Hard choices have been made that have needed to happen thanks to someone spending all the savings and buying on the never never. Basic household expenses save a bit spend a bit.

I've never been a Labour supporter, life long lib dem. obviously Cleggy saw an end to that the minute he sold his soul to the devil hmm. So next year I feel trapped between voting Green which my conscience wants to go with but accepting it will pretty much be a 'wasted vote' in that there's a 0.0000001% chance they would be elected. Or vote for red Ed who has a much bigger chance but I just don't like him. If it were David that won out of the two I reckon I'd be more inclined, I still question why on Earth Ed got it.

The risk in my eyes is a Tory/ukip coalition. That's my worst nightmare. No, truly.

glenthebattleostrich Fri 01-Aug-14 21:00:52

I'm not voting labour because they are a bunch of posh boys who have never existed outside their own little set, pretty much the reason I won't vote Tory.

Until they have a politician who has had a real actual job and not just been a politician in training they can sod off if they think they'll get my vote. I'll vote independent or spoil my ballot first.
