|Since BBB news moved to the
left in the mid 1980's, we have made a difference to
politics. The first evidence came when, after the 1992 general election,
pollsters were scratching their heads wondering why people who claimed
to vote Labour in surveys actually voted Tory at the ballot box. This
was the "Tory shame" factor. Just as the term "right wing" is now
virtually a blasphemous phrase, we conditioned the public to believe
that voting Tory was bad to the extent that many would not admit to it.
Our work came to fruition when many of these closet Tories actually
switched to Labour in subsequent elections.
