The first picture shows the constituencies of Wales and their parties. The second shows the levels of child poverty in these constituences. Have you noticed the very worrying trend? In case you haven't I have animated the two pictures together.
|A vote for Labour is a vote for child poverty|
I've enlarged this area so you can see it clearer. This Labour stronghold used to belong to Alun Michael. He quit being an MP in 2012 and decided to become a Police Commissioner instead. Now this area is run by Steven Doughty. So he can proudly say that he is the MP for the worst area of child poverty in the whole of Wales. But the data was compiled last year, so Alun Michael is well within his rights to claim all the credit for this achievement. He was MP for this poverty stricken area for 25 years after all.

That the poorest areas of Wales keep voting Labour and Labour keeps them poor in order to get their votes can be compared to a drug dealer's relationship with those he supplies.ReplyDelete
Labour victories are like taking drugs, in that they bring on a temporary feeling of euphoria or elation . . . then reality kicks in as you realise you still live in a shit-hole and your Labour representative / drug dealer likes it that way.
Both Labour voters and drug addicts must realise that if their lives are to improve they need to kick the habit entirely.

To what extent does an MP "run" an area?ReplyDelete
This map also relies on FPTP obviously, and that's not an accurate electoral system.
It may not be accurate but it's the system we have. And the stats clearly show a correlation, either between voting Labour and child poverty or child poverty and voting Labour. Either way it's good ammo for the other parties and something Labour ought to be disgusted with themselves about.Delete
Of course they wont be, they are probably doing cartwheels right now as they'll be able to deny any accountability and use our impoverished children as a stick to beat the Tories with. And we'll fall for it, again.
