I think Labour is as bad. They're all c*nts and largely the same. Sure the rhetoric will be left/right leaning (but staunchly anchored in the middle ground) but they end up doing the same things when they get into power.
The Tories are in power now, yes. But if Labour were, there'd still be massive fiscal tightening- it's the economic reality of the situation.
"Ah but the twat bankers! Labour would make them pay!" Would the fuck. The City of London is important to the country's economy. Until that structurally changes (which should happen), anyone running the country would be idiotic to force them to go elsewhere.
The country's in a mess, but it's naive to think it's because of the Tories.
I voted Labour by the way, but it was a token vote. I was indifferent to voting Conservative or Labour (Lib Dems crossed my mind to some extent, but then I didn't think they'd have a chance to weasel their way into the government and do fuck all as they're doing now). I didn't think hard about trying to distinguish between them because I didn't (and don't) believe there's a lot to distinguish between.
I suppose I see politics in a similar light to how I see religion. There's something there of worth, but it's been dumped with so much bullshit over time, for whatever reason, I don't see a point in getting involved to any great extent. Not financially, actively and certainly not emotionally. Objectively, yes. And objectively speaking, as I said, I don't think there'd be much of a difference in the actions of whoever was in charge; Labour or Tory.
