The Elite is the Elite and the workers are the workers, to try and mix elitist material like LGBT dominance and free immigration (which is an aspect of the globalist agenda) is wrong: not even I would have voted them. The Unions must learn one thing: the workers are not champagne socialists who like the ethnical style and are indifferent if their son is gay or straight, they prefer him to be straight. I read the "What we stand for..." section on their website and this is what I found:
- Welcome diversity and oppose racism, fascism and discrimination. Defend the right to asylum, repeal the 2014 Immigration Act and all racist immigration controls.
- Ensure women have genuinely equal rights and pay.
- Full equality for LGBT people.
- Defend our liberties and make police and security democratically accountable.
- For the right to vote at 16.
And plus a nonsensical pro-Palestine Manifesto that's got nothing to do with the average british worker
- No to imperialist wars and occupations!
- Justice for the Palestinians, lift the siege of Gaza, recognise the state of Palestine.
- No more spending on a new generation of nuclear weapons, huge aircraft carriers or irrelevant eurofighters - convert arms spending into socially useful products and services.
- An independent foreign policy, based on international solidarity - no more being a US poodle, no moves towards a capitalist, militarist United States of Europe. No to austerity and anti-working class policies, whether from the EU or Britain.

Dave, listen to me, change it. I say it, because I still hope "I'll be back" into quotation marks because I'm not british, but this hijacking of the workers' party done by the elitists is happening everywhere. You open a door for people like me, b.t.w. for reasons that I don't want to go into, and the reason is not that I am a Jew, because I'm not, I am pro-Israel, but what's this to do with the workers?
Second: I am pro freedom of conscience on all the votes about abortion and LGBT, gay weddings, human embryos tests and so on, because you can't say that if I want the weekend off I must also give babies to gay couples, if I think, and I think, it's a great damage for the babies.
The rest is either acceptable or right, I would give in that the jobseeker's allowance can be cut, but not the jobs and education, also University, has got be open to all people not only the rich ones.
Consider this, Osborne and Duncan Smith won in their constituencies, this means many Britons think they are somehow putting order into the british affairs and that there are too many immigrants and too many "scroungers", I believe that the 2014 Immigration act is good or at least honest, and some workers are sick of the "vulnerable people" mantra to justify squeezing the State. The workers are strong. Telling them they're vulnerable is offensive.
