A Quick Note To Labour Twitterers
Proper post about the election later, but for now I’d just like to say:
I hate the Tories as much as anyone, but Labour supporters keep saying things like “In UK, Tories won 36% of vote.LibDem-Labour combo: 52%” or “labour+libdem got 15,205,906 votes, making 311 seats. conservatives only 10,561,428 votes =301 seats.”
THERE IS NO LIBDEM-LABOUR COMBO! THERE IS NO LABOUR+LIBDEM. WE ARE TWO SEPARATE PARTIES!
Yours is the party of war criminals, destruction of civil liberties, and inflating economic bubbles that favour the middle-classed and middle-aged against the young and poor.
WE ARE NOT YOUR FUCKING BACKUP PLAN. WE ARE A SEPARATE PARTY, AND WE DISAGREE WITH YOU FAR MORE THAN WE AGREE.
I may disagree with the Tories even more than Labour, but DO NOT count my vote – or the vote of anyone I know who supported the Lib Dems – as a vote in support of a party and an agenda I despise.
