This is an excellent and MUST READ article from Lord Ashcroft, sharing his own research into the Labour Party’s challenges for the next general election in the UK.

Project Red Alert – Lord Ashcroft Polls.

Personally, I endorse much of Lord Ashcroft’s conclusion that Labour still has some major problems to win the next election. In my view, all three of the major political parties have a credibility gap with the public. Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with my own political views.

If I were a betting man (which I’m not), I would put a wager on the next Government being a coalition led by Labour with the Liberals as junior partners.

Any thoughts?

  1. I think it is too close to call because there has been a mood and sea change in the country whereby very few ordinary people and even those in the middle have any faith in our institutions or the non strategies of the politicians.

    This is why we have low voter turnouts in this country and around the world.

    To get people to demand a change to the way they are governed you first need to create a situation of disillusionment then you or your appointed spokesperson can step forward with a solution which appears to be just right but is in reality something you created long ago for just the situation you created in the first place.

    People know who Lord Ashcroft is and a few know the Antipodean Lynton Crosby who is right about Cameron and Osborne being electoral liabilities.

    On current form Cameron and Osborne cannot win yet both of them are in their every utterance and body language acting complacently which tells me that they know something we don’t and have a Plan B for themselves in the form of new jobs for the time they go or are displaced.

    As an employer in corporate life I used to see changes in pattern from employees who had landed other jobs and were simply “marking time” before handing in their resignations (something I learnt to time to the hour).

    In the case of Cameron and Osborne one gets the distinct impression of both of them “not being fully present “and mentally “being elsewhere”.

    Studying what is happening leads me to the conclusion that the intent of the ultimate paymasters of Cameron, Clegg, Cable and Miliband who are just foot soldiers, is to create a rolling Coalition designed to bore people into taking no interest in politics whilst the real decisions to invest in China, Brazil and the Far East are made behind closed doors and in Lord Rothschild’s Shanghai super-mansion plus Waddesdon House, Aylesbury.

    Similarly,decisions about peace and war, the approach to Russia and China, the fate of the Euro, the planned merger of NAFTA and the EU, immigration and the need for “porous borders”, overpopulation, the Green Agenda and Agenda 21, will be made at the upcoming Bilderberg meeting at the Grove Hotel in Watford on 6th, 7th and 8th June, at Bohemian Grove in Sonoma, California, later in the year, by Knights of Malta, the Sun Society in the Vatican and the Club of Rome.

    Farage and UKIP are a fly in the ointment but doubtless some scandal about UKIP or villification of him,whether real or invented will emerge in an attempt to derail him between now and 2015 unless he has another helicopter accident or his new bodyguards fail to protect him from hostile hecklers of the type he met when electioneering in Scotland.
    Scottish independence is unlikely given the benefits conferred by the Barnett Formula and its transfer of English wealth North of the border but “the cheeky chappie”(Alex Salmond), is cunning and not to be underestimated for his capacity to dazzle,mislead and sell a different narrative should the UK ,s economy go into further and faster decline as a result of Coalition policies
