Women will vote Labour rather than Conservative at next election
Will women turn to Labour now that the Tories have "mishandled the economy"? asks Grimsby MP Austin Mitchell in his Week In Westminster column in today's Grimsby Telegraph.
Comment below and read the column in full in today's Telegraph.
IN THE days when I used to do opinion polls they always revealed that women were more likely to vote Conservative than men.
Now that political generalisation has been stood on its head.

This Government has behaved so badly to women that it’s lost the women’s vote. Opinion polls now show that women are much more likely to vote Labour than men and by a big margin.
Time for we men to learn the facts of life.
The main reason for this change is that the Government’s mishandling of the economy and government spending has been so bad that women, who handle the family budget and whose work so often makes the difference to the economic survival of families, have been hardest hit by the loss of jobs and the squeeze on wages.
More women’s jobs have been shed. Their wages have been more vulnerable to the squeeze that’s gone on with rising unemployment. Women are being hit three times harder than men by a government with three times more men than women!
With family take-home pay falling, the cost of living rising rapidly and benefits cut, it’s women who have to balance the family budget and decide whether to pay the rocketing gas or electricity bills or to try and save on the rising food bill.
It’s women who make the sacrifices to help their families and those sacrifices are now greater than ever.
