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.

    Isn’t it infuriating though? “Progressive coalition”? With their record on Iraq, detention without trial, asylum? How does that even begin to work?
