Jon Cruddas and the lost voters

Jon Crudass(left), the wannabe first mate of the sinking Titanic of a ship called the Labour Party continues to reveal his fear at the thought of one day losing his fat salary and expenses.

Talking of which, why did he, as the MP representing a constituency only fifteen miles from the House of Commons find the need to claim over £21,000 in Parliamentary Additional Allowances in 2005/6? .. To cover what exactly? ..A B.N.P. Government would know how to treat those who abuse the public purse.

Writing in the rag Guardian, he reveals how many voters Labour have lost since 1997. The article also reveals Labours rather cavalier attitude towards women and the working class in general.

Labour lost nearly 5 million voters from 1997 to 2005, and not to the Tories. Four broad elements can be detected in this change: a significant movement away from us among workers in the public services; among black and minority ethnic voters; and among those described by marketing experts as “urban intellectuals”; and a huge shift away from us among working-class voters, especially manual workers. These voters did not go to the Tories, they went to the BNP and other nationalist groupings, the Liberals and Respect. Or they simply stayed at home. In fact the only group where Labour support has actually grown between 1997 and 2005 has been among the professional, administrative and executive classes - but we cannot go on to win with them alone.

You might recall in an earlier post, "Jon Cruddas - Reveals his fear" how he lied that pavement politics had defeated the B.N.P. and how he was proved wrong by the figures and how we could all now smell his fear. Well he ends this sad article by saying. "If we do not rise to the challenge now it could be too late."

Well you are wrong again Crudass - It is too late. The British National Party mountain is on the move and soon it will become a landslide. Try not to get crushed, there's a good fellow.

"Those who have been once intoxicated with power and have derived any kind of emolument from it can never willingly abandon it."
