Flirting as political activism
While I appreciate that a lot of good lefties have been backing off from the Lib Dems in a righteous huff for perfectly valid reasons, I think they’ve been a little too quick to return to Labour. After all, this is still the party of Phil Woolas.
Why is it that people are so keen to be affiliated with political parties? For people with political ambitions, I guess it makes sense. In fact, now's probably the perfect time to get in on the ground floor with Labour. I can't imagine that many of the people going back to Labour from the Lib Dems are in that category though.
Surely the ideal here would be to look obviously politically interested, but remain a floating voter until one of the parties provides a decent incentive to join?
