The Politics Of Desperation – Vote Tactically Say Labour Ministers
Vote tactically say desperate Labour Ministers Peter Hain and Ed Balls, keep those nasty Tories out or they will eat your babies.
Such is the desperation in the Labour campaign that Liberal turncoat and disgraced and brought back Welsh Secretary Peter Hain is advising voters to vote Lib Dem to keep the Conservatives from forming a Government.
Same goes for Children’s Secretary Ed Balls who last week was wakened from his fools paradise with sudden realisation that there is a very good chance of him losing his seat in the Morley and Outwood constituency. The constituency boundaries have changed since the last General Election and only 25% of the old constituency is in the new one.
Balls is widely expected to get his “Portillo” moment on Thursday, still never mind Ed you can stay home and look after the kids, while Yvette goes out to work, she has bigger balls than you anyway.
Sky News has this to say:
The Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families suggested tactical voting could keep the Conservatives out of power.
“I always want the Labour candidate to win, but I recognise there’s an issue in places like North Norfolk, where my family live, where Norman Lamb (Lib Dem) is fighting the Tories, who are in second place. And I want to keep the Tories out,” Mr Balls said.
In turn, Lib Dem supporters should “bite their lip” and back Gordon Brown’s party in areas where there is a tight race between the Tories and Labour, he told the New Statesman.
Secretary of State for Wales Peter Hain made similar remarks, suggesting there could have been an intentional change of tack.
He told The Independent people should “vote with their heads, not their hearts”.
“I support every Labour candidate and the Liberal Democrat leadership supports every Liberal Democrat candidate. But voters are intelligent and they know what the real fight is in their own constituency. They will draw their own conclusions.”
Later, he told Sky News there was a “growing fear” of a Conservative government among voters and he appealed to the “big, progressive majority” to unite.
