Turnout in European elections has been traditionally very low but with the five yearly polls only three months away this time they have an added significance on two fronts.
Firstly, people are angry about Labour’s recession. They’re likely to take this opportunity to send a message to my constituent about this mess. With Vince Cable providing sound leadership on economic issues I would suspect that many will choose us as a vehicle to send that message.
Secondly, there is a strategic decision to be made about the future direction of the nation. While the country is in recession do we turn in or look out to seek solutions? The Tories and SNP are clearly on the isolationist side of the debate and whilst outward looking Labour have preferred to blame other countries rather than work with them.
I usually love elections but June 4th I suspect I will especially enjoy.
