It’s a tactic I often employed in my childhood whilst being told off for misbehaving.
When there was no justification for my own actions I would often resort to pointing at my sister and then trying to tell my parents about something worse that she had done.
This is obviously a strategy that currently appeals to the bulk of our politicians.
“Vote SNP get the Tories. The Tories only care about the rich” we hear from Labour. Why don’t they instead try and focus on promoting their plans to fix the economy?
“Vote SNP, get Labour who will ruin our economy!” is the main message from the Conservatives, why don’t they instead tell us about their plans to balance the books fairly in Britain?
Here in Scotland we hear that only the SNP can “give Scotland a louder voice” in Westminster. Well that’s fine but what are we using that voice to say? Forget the rhetoric and the Westminster-bashing and let’s hear some positive policies!
With all the negativity and shots fired between the parties, it’s hard to see any of them in a positive light, no wonder people are so apathetic towards politics now, why would you bother voting for anyone when all you’ve heard is the potential mess that each one will bring? It seems that the main parties don’t have many ideas on how to improve the state of our country so instead are resorting to telling us that they’re not as bad as the other guys.
All parties are guilty of this, some for than others. Even my own party to an extent. That’s why I want to contribute to a system of more optimistic politics by putting forward my own positive case for the Liberal Democrats.
If you want us to continue repairing the economy in a fairer, greener way in which the recovery is felt by everyone.
If you want our NHS to receive the funding it needs.
If you want everyone to have the same opportunities in life, regardless of their race, sexuality or economic background.
Then vote for the Liberal Democrats on the 7th of May for a stronger economy in a fairer society.
