Yeah, Tony, it's your ministers they want out of office

I suspect that the British voter's thought process is going something like this:

"Well, we have a choice between the conservatives or the conservatives. Might as well pick the party that's actually carrying the name."

I was holding some hope that the Liberal Democrats would gather some of the fleeing Labour vote, but that doesn't appear to be the case right now.

The British public still is too Thatcher-struck to actually vote Left, unfortunately.

In some ways, it's very similar to Canada - we'll vote for people that call themselves "Liberal" but not for those that actually are.
