Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Until Labour rejects Neo-Classical Economics thus the policies, laws, and regulations that stems from that political-economic ideology electing a Labour government is re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.  

In an ideal world Labour would also simultaneously conclude putting sociopaths in charge of Public Business is a Bad Thing.

Yes, choosing between 3 parties with the same economic approach is no choice at all. We're simply turkeys choosing which abattoir to visit at Xmas

As I said on another topic:
I have received great idea by e-mail (from Serbia where people are sick and tired of all political players).When voting we should have a new tick box on the ballot paper saying "I am not voting for any party on this list". If more than 50% of voters tick this box election should be repeated but none of the parties from the list cannot participate. Wouldn't it be great! That would make them think harder next time...or disappear from political scene. Also we may get some new players on political field as for now we are locked with those idiots. And I think this idea is great on planetary political fields. I can keep dreaming...

Yes, it's a great dream. Since in the US the independents now comprise a larger number of voters than either party, it would be a tremendously powerful stick there.
