Doorsteps, Pensions and Council homes

Out on the doorsteps again today and had trouble finding Labour supporters - maybe they are too embarrassed! I met plenty of former Labour voters however. One recounted how she had just had a letter telling her that her state pension had cone up by 34p. She was annoyed that the increase wasn't much more than the cost of posting the letter.

Three residents also mentioned how they were worried about the lack of affordable housing and all p-laced the blame on the Tories sell off of council houses in the 1980s. People have long memories and don't forget it when they are betrayed. I wonder how long it will be before Labour are forgiven for the mistakes of Mr Blair and Mr Brown?
