Indeed it is, but it's not a made up figure, our M.P. claims it to be an accurate figure he gleaned from a poll somewhere, however when asked for a link to this poll he has so far been unable to put it on site, (no doubt due to the pressure of working tirelessly on our behalf).

Re: you wont hear this on sky

21.3% defiantly give a toss about the EU as they voted for a party that wants independence


and thats not including them that voted for tory who say they will deliver a referendum

seems to me this figure of %95 not giving a toss about the EU was pulled out of somewhere rather smelly than out of fresh air

Its like i said accyman, if Labour dont wake up n smell the coffee, in 5 years time, they could even do a Lib/Dem.

i doubt it because they can always rely on a strong support up Scotland.

they may well have to bend over and take a good shafting to get that support

luckily kilts can be provided

Re: you wont hear this on sky

It seems to me they will NEVER learn, 2 of those who seek to lead the party, think they should be reaching out to business to regain popularity!!! well how about this fer a novel idea? They should be trying to reach the MAJORITY of the british public who can't be arsed to vote, This to me is the answer to why Labour are knackered, NOT business who will always swing wi whatever suits the pocket best, which is usually Tory any way. Any government to be elected here these days are elected by a MINORITY of the british public, they should ask themselves why thats the case. But they won't, too thick to see it.

Re: you wont hear this on sky

The major concerns with electing a Labour government is that they can't be trusted to handle the economy in a responsible way.
They cannot see that you have to earn the money before you can spend it....you cannot have what can't be paid for......well you can(but at a huge cost in the future - didn't Labour get Private companies to build hospitals so that the said private companies could fleece the NHS.....you would think that would be a Tory strategy)....the PFI is evidence of that and the reason why many trusts are in financial difficulties right now.

Labour did not listen to the concerns of the grass roots.....but went ahead and allowed uncontrolled immigration.......this was to rub the rights nose in it......a cynical ploy to increase their voting base too.
Labour blames the financial crisis on the global economy, rather than seeing that it spent money that wasn't there to spend.
Gordon Brown knew about the banking situation and did absolutely nothing about it.

all these things have eroded the trust of the electorate....plus the fact that they refused to let the people have a say on the EU, when it was clear that the creeping insidious effects of their policies was damaging the fabric of the UK(mainly because we slavishly follow the rules to the letter whereas France and other countries pick and choose which laws they will abide by...and nothing happens to them).

I really don't think it matters who takes over the leadership of the Labour party......there isn't a strong leader to be found.

Re: you wont hear this on sky

Yer on same wavelength as me Margaret, I reckon whilst the minority of public are voting these days, then its likely only a Tory Government is likely to be elected? Labour to me seem to thick to see it sadly. The saddos just try to sound tory n the public can see right through it.

How many seats do Labour have in Scotland? It was Stirling Bridge all over again - they were wiped off the face of the map by the SNP.

Re: you wont hear this on sky

Labour said a lot about what they'd do for the poorest and how they'd tax the richest.
They didn't say a lot about what they'd do for all those in-between.
There aren't that many very rich and not as many very poor as there used to be(not many of us live in little terraced houses with cold water and outside tippler now).
So I think many of the 'in-betweeners' (who are now the majority) realised that as there aren't that many very rich, the 'in-betweeners'(or their children) would be the ones having to pay for Labours policies.
Labour didn't pay attention to the current make-up of UK society and didn't tailor their policies to appeal to it- they paid the price. Their policies were 50 to 70 years behind the times.
The 'in betweeners' wanted to see they had a future they could work for, Labour didn't offer it to them.

Mind you Ed and the SNP didn't help.
