Big three parties don't deserve power; VOICE OF THE NORTH.
G.W. McPherson's letter (Voice of the North, May 9) seemed rather muddled to me as he gave both Thatcher's "old" Tories and Brown's "New" Labour credit.
None of the big three deserve to hold power.
No doubt the electorate will vote red or blue in June, but none of the main parties are at all convincing about what they are doing or will be attempting.
The glaringly obvious fact is that New Labour is failing abysmally, both politically and morally. There can be no excuses left, no escape clause. The cupboard is bare, the people crave a General Election and that promised referendum on the thinly disguised European Constitution.
Our time is high. We must have our say.
