My former MP, Hilton Dawson, showed his true colours when he criticized a council election poster which said 'A vote for Labour is a vote for Henig'. Apparently 'Henig' is a Jewish name, so he reasoned that the poster was racist! That's the kind of left-wing PC nonsense that characterizes New Labour!
To be honest though, these days there's very little difference between the non-economic policies of the 3 main parties. They are all PC, and terrified of doing anything that might cause controversy. The irony is that, if they were to take bold right-wing measures like stopping Britain's contributions to the EU or depriving prisoners of their in-cell TVs, the average man and woman in the street would be 100% behind them.

cant believe that comment !!!
new labour are mostly just tories with red ties on, thats why libdems popularity increased, cos (b4 the coalition agreement) they were more left wing than labour on many policies.
