You don't half talk some gonads at times:D

 

Have you any more unfounded prejudices that you'd like to share with us?

 

Are you calling me a liar then?

That will never happen. People vote labour because they always have and always will regardless of the political horizon.

 

"Grand father voted Labour, Father voted labour and i vote labour" :loopy:

 

Seriously? I must have missed the announcement of you being made spokesman for Labour voters.

Wonder why :)

Oh yes forgot about him. His blurb in that thread is comedy gold now.

 

Kudos for standing though.

What's that phrase. Stick a red rosette onto a donkey and people would vote for it.

 

Seriously, what disaster actually needs to happen before people stop voting red just cos their dad did and their granddad did and their great granddad did.

And those Lib Dem ones are all in Graves Park, a part of the world where the Aucklands could publicly declare they drown kittens and puppies and they both would still get voted in.

 

a part of the world thats sick and tired of julie bore and her cronies ruining the city

You seem to forget that the voters of Sheffield can be very fickle, Paul Scriven was Leader of Sheffield City Council (2008–11), I don't think he was a Labour supporter.
