An Election Day Message from The Ad Pit

If any of you vote Tory today I will be extremely disappointed in you.

Labour may not have been all we hoped for back in 1997, but that is no excuse to forget what happened to the working class during the last conservative government. If you are young and don't remember life under a conservative government, lets just say finally getting rid of them was our Obama. If you think you hate your prime minister now, just wait til 2 years into a Cameron majority government.

I don't know one single person anywhere who likes David Cameron, not one single person. Most people see him as a necessary evil to get rid of Brown, but why not change our stupid electoral system for the better and vote for a party that actually cares about everyone instead of a select few? The only major party that opposed the war on Iraq. The only party with a leader people actually like.

But if you don't vote Lib Dem, I won't mind. Just don't vote Tory, please.

sorry Rob, prepare to be disappointed.

Brown has run up the nation's collective credit card and seems to think the state is the answer to everthing.

The economist makes the case for change well:

Cameron is our best option for rebuilding our economy - i've never voted tory before but will be happily in about 20 minutes. The thought of 5 more years of Brown is too awful to contemplate.

PS
One thing we probably agree on though - I expected something a lot better on the front page of The Sun this morning.

WHO ARE YOU TO TELL PEOPLE WHO TO OR WHO NOT TO VOTE FOR? NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO MAKE OTHERS FEEL GUILTY FOR VOTING FOR ANY PARTY THEY CHOOSE. GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE AND STICK TO WRITING ADVERTS.

well, while i can see where you are coming from 2:52, your reaction is a bit over the top. maybe as much over the top as robs attempt convincing the readers of his blog* not to vote cameron in.

*you know, the thing on the internet where people express their own and very personal opinions, in posts and comments and all

Ah well... was worth a try!!

I wasn't telling anyone, I was making a case and asking nicely!

Given the amount of near-propaganda in the papers and media I think we all have a duty to make our cases in as strong a way as we feel is valid. It may be a little over the top but then so was the treatment of many people under the last Tory government. If I didn't care passionately about this I wouldn't consider such a post.

Considering that even against an unloved PM and dying government Cameron couldn't get a tiny majority suggests my points about him being unliked are correct.
