TORY COUNCILLOR: NO-ONE BELIEVES A WORD CAMERON SAYS

By Pete Moore On May 3rd, 2013

What joy to see the Tories having chunks torn out of them. The recriminatons have begun, with one (now ex) Tory councillor taking to The Telegraph to let rip at Cameron:

There is a problem with the people at the top of our political parties. They just don’t listen. They don’t listen to ordinary people or our concerns.

The European Union referendum is a good example. They all promise a referendum, but come the time, they change their minds and say ‘You don’t need a referendum”. David Cameron says he’ll have a referendum, but no-one believes a word he says. I don’t believe a word he says, and I’m a lifelong Conservative.

Then there’s immigration. Whenever anyone brings up immigration, they are fearful they are called racist, they are called names, and no one likes being called names. People tend not to voice their views, they are afraid to speak […]

The Ukip messages chime with everybody, but they have done the Conservatives most harm, and I think that’s our own fault in a way.

For some unknown reason, David Cameron and his advisers seem to think that a lot of Conservative voters’ values are out-of-date and need to be modernised and thrown out. These are values that we have held true to for years, and now they are being ditched.

We stood up for things in the past. We don’t stand up for anything any more.

Tories in turmoil – fantastic.

  1. Bearing in mind my long term view that politics has had its day, I am nevertheless extremely pleased at the results for UKIP. I think one of our elderly village residents who like me has been a lifelong Tory voter, put it best. He said this country needs a damn good shakeup, and Nigel Farage is the man to do it!

    Most UKIP people are disgruntled Tory voters, and I predict that many Tories will move over to UKIP. Not because they want to be on the winning team necessarily, but because they have found someone and something who actually articulates their desire to change things and breakaway from the dead weight of Europe.

  2. What was the Telegraph editorial line vis-a-vis the UKIP up to the election, anyone know?

  3. Cameron was put into the leadership by the members of the Conservative Party. They had the option of David Davis, a genuine conservative who came from a single-parent family on a council estate and worked his way up through industry then into Parliament, and an Etonian PR spiv called David Cameron. They chose Cameron and are now reaping what they have sown – idiots, all of them.

    Precisely, and just to make matters even worse, no doubt the Political elite and the equaly useless ‘Special advisors’ will be drafting up the next set of utter lies to feed to the gullible drones to cover up the last lot of outragous lies they feed to the gullible drones.

    Allan got it spot on a while back .. A shower of shit, the lot of them

  5. Noel –

    The Telegraph line came straight from Tory HQ and it was very strongly anti-UKIP. This is in contrast to comments on the blogs and comment pages, which were overwhelmingly pro-UKIP.

    Not by me. I voted for Davis when I was a member of the Tory party. Alas I am no longer a member because of Cameron. I also had a similar background to Davis and like him worked hard to get myself and family a good standard & comfortable life. Just like my sister did. Influenced by my stepfather who came along and married my mum. He was a working-class man who believed in rewarding hard work. We were all Tories in the 80s. Now, none of us are. I voted UKIP and my sis and stepfather don’t even bother any more.

    And I’m sure you are!
    I voted for David Davis too.
    We should never allow our background to shackle us to our past.
    Everyone is special. Everyone has potential.
    UKIP is the party for disillusioned Tories.

  8. Everyone is special. Everyone has potential.

    That’s the sort of measningless slogan used by the likes of Margaret Hodge to open the floodgates to the masses of the 3rd-world. And the sloganeer considers himself a ‘conservative’?

    Tell me Agit – you do remember that excerpt from the North Korean documentary?
