Shadow energy secretary Caroline Flint told Labour activists they must target “Aldi mum” voters if the party is to win the 2015 election.
So your Worcester News asked shoppers at the Pheasant Street store yesterday to see what it would take for them to vote Red.
Julia Cresswell, aged 36, from Blackpole, Worcester, said: “I think petrol prices are a big issue.
“They are getting a bit too high in my opinion, particularly for short journeys in the city.
“I’d also urge them not to touch the school holiday dates. I think they should stay the same.”
Nikita Kennard, aged 26 and from Dines Green, said she wants to see “a better National Health Service”.
“I think the NHS could be a lot better. We had problems at the Worcester Royal when my daughter was born, and she had to go to Birmingham,” she said.
“I also think there should be a reduction in MPs’ expenses and more jobs for British people.”
Matt Meake, from Worcester city centre who was shopping with his partner, said the pair didn’t pay too much attention to politics but said they believe the benefit culture should be stopped.
