Labour identity crisis

An email today - not in spam folder.
  Hi Mark,
We hope you enjoyed finding out how many voters share your name last week. As one of those voters yourself, it would be enormously valuable to have an insight into your views on Britain, and where you think our country is headed.
First of all, we're keen to know:
Do you plan to use your vote in the upcoming election?
YES
NO
UNSURE
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
Best,
Harriet
Harriet Harman
Deputy Leader of the Labour Party

Very interested to find out how many voters share my name - BUT... my name isn't Mark. Maybe I should email back to Harry T Harman and tell him? Grin

Re: Labour identity crisis

First Q would be where did you get my email address, and WHY THE F**** are you contacting me. I am not a member of ANY party so go away and die quietly please.

I have more chance of winning the Lotto then Labour ever getting my vote at any future election.
FWIW: I haven't bought a Lotto ticket in years & have no plans to in the future either  Grin
Labour & Lib Dem's council mad PFI housing regeneration scheme that nobody on the estate where I live wanted thankfully stopped by Cameron cancelling PFI housing projects when he got in is the reason why I wont give Labour ( or Lib Dems ) my vote.

Re: Labour identity crisis

I refuse to vote on the grounds that i don't trust any of them.
The only party I could be tempted to vote for is UKIP... Oh hang on... I don't vote for a reason  Grin

It's the PFI deals that have put our hospitals into the financial mess they are currently in Angry.

Re: Labour identity crisis

I can't understand anyone who could sink our health service using PFI claiming it to be a good thing. It's a disgrace and those who did this to our health service should be prosecuted.

Emphatic NO. No affiliation to any party/belief/religion.
I like to think for myself, and judge each politician by their actions not their party. Wink

Re: Labour identity crisis

I am not voting labour for bad decisions made on the NHS and their stabbing of their core voters in the back.
I wont vote tories who pretend they need to dismantle the welfare state for financial reasons when it is for idealogical reasons, plus of their love affair with pensioners.
I wont vote lib dems due to their partial backtracking after joining forces with the tories.
I will probably vote greens, however I am in a safe labour seat area in a rubbish FPTP voting system so my vote means nothing.
