Local voters turn away from the Tories and their swingeing cuts to embrace Labour’s message

Labour is enjoying strong appeal among voters in the local elections on Thursday (May 2), with a message of opposition to cuts by the Tory government that will take £1.3 billion out of the economy:

The Tories, by contrast, aren’t doing quite as well:

Ross Kempsell, Political Editor at talkRADIO, has reported that many Tory candidates are not even bothering to canvass, just leaflet drop, with one source saying: “Why would I get screamed and shouted at about something I can’t change, she’s [Theresa May] no idea what we are facing”.

I’ve got a pretty good idea: Wipeout.

    If this is really the case, and I can imagine that it is, then WHY ON EARTH have the tory party not booted her out already? She is obviously a tremendous liability and the main, if not only, reason for the tory party’s rapid decline in recent years. They have lost thousands of members and donors since she took the helm. They are in the process of being decimated at the ballot box. And yet STILL they don’t get rid of her.

    Perhaps they want the tory party to fall into oblivion? I can’t understand this apathy about kicking her out – she is a disgrace. A disgrace to the party and to the nation.

    At last, some good news. Ideally it would be nice to see a total wipeout of Tories.
