It’s the Labour Party Conference this week and what with Ed Balls doing his best George Osborne impersonation today, I thought it might be a good time to ask people if they are planning on voting Labour, and more importantly, why? I genuinely have no idea who I will vote for next year, but I see nothing to persuade me that Labour deserve my vote. The only thing that would sway me slightly is the NHS, but the only reason we are where we are today is because of the reforms made under Tony Blair’s leadership, so can we even trust them with that?
I’m interested to hear why others are sticking with Labour though. Here’s a few reasons I can think of why people might want to:
- Anyone but the Tories, and Labour are the only ones who can beat them
- You think Ed Miliband would make a good leader
- You like policies x, y and z
- You’ve always voted Labour and believe they can change for the better
Are there any others? Or, if not Labour, who and why?
