Lenin's Tomb :

Now, we had been told somewhat pontifically by some that the economic crisis, and the MPs expenses scandal, would lead to working class Labour supporters backing the far right. This was patronising, and it turns out not to be the case. Labour voters stayed at home or voted for some leftish substitute: by and large, they didn't vote for the right.

Can't see how this analysis relates to the actual survey results. On the first page: 54% of BNP voters think Labour "used to care about people like me but doesn't nowadays". Only 17% think this about the Tories.
