4. Worse than Michael Foot? Yikes!

In the 1983 general election, Margaret Thatcher managed to paint England Tory blue. Foot's Labour came within 700k votes of receiving third place in number of votes cast, but thanks to first past the post they did keep a lot of seats. Hard left does not work for Labour.

This does NOT bode well at all. I can only hope and pray that Jo Swinson and the Lib Dems makes huge gains at the expense of the Tories and not Labour.
