Labour vote in melt down?

All the indicators seem to point towards a bad election for the scandal hit Labour Party on Thursday, with activists (the last remaining few) very despondent and admitting that the vote is very likely to be in free fall.

Some Labour candidates round the country have been trying to distance themselves from the national Labour government. For instance, in Cambridge the Arbury candidate is describing himself on his leaflets as "Real Labour" in an obvious bid to curry favour with those disillusioned with the arrogant and rightist government.

Although the nearby Romsey Labour Party have decided to go with an anti-recycling campaign as their big "vote winner". Get with the programme people!

Socialist Unity will be covering the election from our
Election 2006 resource page but we are going to need the help of our readers to get the information in and then out again as efficiently as possible. If you're involved in a left campaign let us know the results as soon as you can, if you get an interesting snippet of info tell us and we'll post it as a newswire item. We'll be the only site covering the election hoping that all the left do well rather than just our own little section and so we'll be the only site that you can come to for all your election info needs!

Email us at
this address to let us know what's going on - we'll be updating the site throughout Thursday night and again on Friday.

Today's SUN website headline says its been an election dominated by environment and racism - seems too optimistic to me, politics dominated by a poisonous mix of crime and racism.

I don't think you can right off the fact that the Tory campaign has put the environment to the front in an unprecedented way... go green vote blue - amazing slogan!

The other parties then fell over each other to out do the Tories... but I suspect that the real 'feel' of the election is actually of Ministerial scandals and Blair's leadership.
