Antipathy, apathy and this faux election

boredom-at-workThe Englishman:

Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg go into tomorrow’s historic televised debate facing a wall of public antipathy amid a tightening race.  A new Populus poll for The Times reveals deep disenchantment with the campaign so far and high levels of scepticism about manifesto pledges and the parties’ honesty.

More voters are now hoping for a hung Parliament than either a Tory or a Labour outright victory. A mere 4 per cent think that the parties are being completely honest with voters about their tax plans and only 6 per cent about their approaches to cutting the deficit.  43 per cent were unconvinced by any party.

Very, very poor result by any of the Big Three.   And meanwhile, a massive suppressive effort to keep the EU Referendum off the agenda by any means possible.

We’d like to ask you to download THIS PDF and print yourself some copies to take around with you.  Then, if you meet any political campaigners, you can hand it to them and ask them to sign it.

Doorstep democracy.

    Elections always remind me of this:

    You know, comrades,” says Stalin, “that I think in regard to this: I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.

    Good luck.
