Not a particularly good day to crow about the Tories given the introduction of rail fare increases averaging 6%. What with the utility increases and petrol prices, all of which hit practically every working family in the UK (many of whom have had to forego salary/wage increases) one has to wonder if the big companies are being made to tighten their belts to the extent that the electorate is being forced to.

Crikey jrs, you'll be voting Labour next.

You don't need to wonder jrs. It's self-evident. The big companies are not tightening their belts as much as the little people. The bankers, the private utilities, the tax evading Vodaphone et al?? No pain there. All the pain is being felt by the lower paid workers, and especially those in the state sector. Basically the Tory party love the recession and Labour's demise as they feel they have a mandate to cut the state (and/or give parts of it away to their friends ala Thatcher) and consolidate wealth and power amongst their establishment, private school, land owning, non-executive director friends.

Despite the obvious intention the turkeys voting for Christmas (see above) still don't seem to get it.

Zebedee - Back in the dark ages of my mis-informed youth I did vote Labour, but never again. They probably were a socialist party from their birth until about the mid 1960's, representing the working man, but they then began to thnk more of looking after themselves than the working man. As do another party, who I shall not name but you only get one guess.

Latest Yougov poll for the Sun: Con 38, Lab 42, Lib Dem 10. So Lab back around the 4 point lead or so they held for many months before Cameron's successful PR stunt in Brussels.

Having said that, Polls do fluctuate and YouGov's are published daily in The Sun. Given the election is about 3 years away, do we really want to be talking about them now?
