Yesterday, the Labour party asked the voters of Crewe and Nantwich to vote for them because they despised some of our fellow citizens and some visitors to our country. To their credit, and Labour's shame, the electors saw through race and class-baiting and deserted Labour in droves. It was a disgusting Labour campaign and many of their own people have been saying so. The only rational explanation is that they knew that they were going to lose, but by running a poisonous 'core-vote' strategy they hoped to limit the damage. It says a lot about how they view their own core vote, but I am glad it not only didn't work, it was a disaster.
Now they are saying that it was all about introducing a note of humour into the election. Well I have news for them. Hate isn't remotely funny.
