Watching the Labour election broadcast just now it is clear that Labour does not take the local elections seriously. Rather than talking about the issues they used their whole 5 minute national TV slot to take the Mickey out of the Conservative leader. Not only do they not take the elections seriously they obviously don’t take voters seriously either.
Interestingly their chameleon character goes around stealing Labour policies. Notably the cartoon character grabs the “Minimum wage” with his sticky tongue. The Labour party is not quick to tell you that tax on a single person doing a standard working week on the minimum wage has gone up from 6% to 9% since it was introduced. See previous posting.
