Tory election campaign dubbed ‘disaster’; Gogglebox stars explain why

According to a former (Labour) deputy prime minister, there is deep unrest among Conservative Party bigwigs about Theresa May’s election campaign.

Or, in his own words:

To understand why, consider Conservative leader Theresa May’s interview with Andrew Neil on BBC television last week. Mr Neil asked a few searching questions, and the stars of Channel 4’s Gogglebox responded to the answers in the latest episode of that show:

(There was briefly a YouTube clip Channel 4 blocked it for copyright reasons, so you’ll have to trawl through the full episode to find the sequence. Sorry!)

That’s serious negativity from all sectors of society.

But that doesn’t mean Mr Corbyn will walk the general election.

Tories are sneaky. They know their supporters will come out and vote, no matter what. Labour voters are less easily-stirred.

Complacency is the enemy here.

If you want to defeat Theresa May and her Tories on June 8, then you have to actually go out and vote for Labour.

    Yup totally agree this is a serious vote that requires full attention and attendance even more important than the referendum…..We must make the effort. Forget the ney sayers. The Cons have not got it sewed up at all but it depends if you match the Cons voting machinery which relys on the oppositions can;t be bothered attitude.
    I really believe this is the last and only chance to change the current Cons dictatorship.

    There is no way the Nasty Party can dress up their nasty policies to appeal to anyone but a few millionaires. Make June the end of May.

    I found it most amusing especially the negative comments from the obvious Tory voters on the programme.
    But I agree with you about the complacency and the general Tory sneakyness.
    I’m in in a town that Cameron “parachuted” a loyal toady into and although he will win, my single vote may just help to reduce his majority.

    Right now, I do suggest that you consider listening to Roger Waters – “The Tide is Turning” , a very apt theme song for the Labour Party right now !

    There is some truth In the complacency view, maybe that is EXACTLY what the Tories are trying to do , make it appear that thing are so bad for them that the bulk of Labour votes fall for it and don’t get out and vote.

  5. Kenneth Billis

    Surely the bigwigs can’t be surprised by this. They nodded through her installation as Prime Minister despite her incompetence over seven years as Home Secretary.

  6. Barry Davies

    To be honest none of the parties seem to be very interested in campaigning at the present, other than the damp squib manifesto launches there has been little to see or hear from any of them.
