Labour loosing votes locally through reticence

http://www.markpack.org.uk/47012/how-ukip-is-damaging-labour-reprised/

Some times doing what you believe is right does not make you popular. My, unscientific, analysis of Lab/ UKIP switchers suggestes that they are motivated as much by support for welfare reform as much as they are by immigration. Mind you when Labour fulfil their pledge to be tougher than the coalition on welfare they might come back, but first Labour locally will have to overcome the reticence and tell them their new policy which might in turn alienate their activists

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
