Thread Name: Republican or Conservative folk singers
Subject: RE: Republican or Conservative folk singers
I must take issue with Howard Jones that the right wing conservative attract a lot of working class voters, That is purely down to two facts. One- 80% of British voters are rather particularly ignorant, the vote these days purely on what the media instruct them to do. For instance when the Daily Mirror was a left wing Socialist newspaper and had thge biggest circulation, most people voted Labour. These days the vast majority of our media is right wing including the very biased BBC. And not surprisingly The Sun owned by who sponsors the Conservative party (many would say in his pocket, instructs it's politically ignorant readership who to vote for. Thereore as the Sun attracts the most ignorant readers they are merely doing what they're told, not out of any special allegiance to the Conservative. To back this up you only have to remember when the Sun said vote Labour, those reliable Sun readers did as they were told. I rest my case ;)
