The labour members are boycotting the election and labour voters are sitting on their hands and refusing to vote for the charlatan in the red rosette!

  1. Today is the day they should stop sulking and do something for the good of Rotherham. There is clearly an alternative to Ukip n Labour. We all know that Ukip isn’t big enough to win. Voting Ukip means you might as well go for Labour because that is who you will allow in.
    IF YOU DON’T WANT LABOUR TO WIN OR ARE MAKING A PROTEST VOTE….THEN FOR GOODNESS SAKE VOTE RESPECT. ANY OTHER AND YOU’LL ALLOW LABOUR IN.

    and for those of you who don’t know the Labour girl can’t cope with a debate on tv, doesn’t turn up for radio one and runs away when confronted by opposition. She really will bring the town down further. She was probably good at bluebell but unable to carry out politics. She is not professional, not knowledgeable and not competent in this field. We need a strong credible candidate. VOTE FOR YVONNE RIDLEY. VOTE RESPECT. WE NEED A CHANGE.

  2. I could say it so I will! I agree with sims “There is clearly an alternative to Ukip n Labour.”

    But then he spoils it all by making a negative appeal to tactical voting – you could just as easily say:
    IF YOU DON’T WANT LABOUR TO WIN OR ARE MAKING A PROTEST VOTE….THEN FOR GOODNESS SAKE VOTE INDEPENDENT (or even UKIP?). ANY OTHER AND YOU’LL ALLOW LABOUR IN.” Respect is not the anointed opposition with an entitlement to the protest vote. There are still 11 hours of polling to go for the people of Rotherham to have THEIR say! Happy polling

    • You may well be and probably are a thoroughly likeable chap….but the sheer fact of the matter is the opposition to Labour is fragmented.

      I do hope someone gives them a bloody nose…but the ‘machine’ behind Respect is alot larger than the ‘machine’ behind yor good self.

      Like him or not (and i don’t) Gorgeous George attracts publicity……Respect will have motivated a large proportion of the Asian vote and others reading on here….and i suspect that will be larger than the number of people you will have reached and convinced.

      I suspect that some Respect voters and potential voters will vote for them in the same vain as some people always vote Labour….

      The sensible thing to have done would have been for a lot of the candidates to have not stood and let it been a two (or three) horse race…..

      Lets add up the votes of all the opposition candidates and see if they are more or less than what Labour gets? Then we can start to kick ourselves…….
