2015 Election Analysis

I'm currently running on fumes, as I stayed up much of the night to watch the events of this election unfold. But now the results are in, and this has turned out to be the most unpredictable UK general election in generations, full of highs and lows. 

A major high point is that the Labour Party lost 26 seats, a shock result that did not come anywhere near expectations. This translated to 232 seats, and less than 31% of the vote, much less than the 33% in the poll of polls. This led to the resignation of Ed Miliband, another high point of this general election. The electorate has sent a very clear message in this regard; they don’t want politics that flirt with the far left, and Red Ed certainly did that, with his rhetoric and policies involving rent and price controls, or nationalisation of the railways, to name a few examples.

Should Labour Voters Be Proud?

I'm convinced that a "shy UKIP" effect will mean that UKIP will do far better than pollsters predict on May 7th. It seems, however, that other voters are proud to support certain parties, parties that are far from deserving of such sentiment.

YouGov poll states that many people are proud to support a Labour party responsible for lying and deceiving the country more times that anyone could mention, not least the Rotherham scandal in recent years.

The sheer level of debt alone that this party has piled onto the country is reflective of the average selfish and ignorant Labour voter, and how the type of people that would vote Labour are perfectly happy to hide their own narcissistic sense of entitlement behind a socialist ideology that has never worked, and never will. Each time Labour has departed office they leave the country in crisis, and in typical socialist fashion history is revised to suppress this. Everywhere that socialists go this pattern is replicated, from the collapse of the Soviet Union, to the killing fields of Cambodia - either it's not real socialism, or it's someone else's fault.
