- People are stupid, part 4,567 - UK Polling Report:
"45% of Labour voters want Blair to go this year or next year"Which means, of course, that 55% of Labour voters DON'T want him to go. Likewise, "67% of current Labour voters think [Gordon Brown] will be a good Prime Minister" - even though "51% think that “it will be pretty much ‘business as usual’"
In other words, they LIKE what Labour's doing. they couldn't care less about the erosion of civil liberties. Because civil liberties are not a vote-losing issue. It's the economy, stupid, and until that REALLY begins to crumble, Labour will remain safely in power. We're stuck with 'em.
