I remember once when I started a new job as a credit control manager and had been given a 3 year target, which I smashed in the first year. One of the directors congratulated me but warned that I was 'working my way out of a job'.
This is how I feel about Labour. Their votes rely on them not doing their job properly, keeping people where they are now.
