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For some unknown reason, David Cameron and his advisers seem to think that a lot of Conservative voters’ values are out-of-date and need to be modernised and thrown out.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.

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you …

How scared of UKIP are the Tories? With council elections tomorrow, Cameron is now rehashing the old lies about referendums, this time talking about (though not promising) one before the next general election.

He’d be better off drafting his letter of resignaton for Friday morning.

So what?

They must be right worried to drag out that old tosh yet again, and out of their minds if they think it still works.

Another siren that misses the POINT.

David Cameron is “running out of time” to rid the Conservatives of their “posh, male and white” image, Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston warns.

Oh yes?

Writing for Telegraph.co.uk, she continued: “If David Cameron wants to occupy the ‘common ground’ he needs to look at how his inner circle of ministers and advisers look from the outside. “Do they look like modern Britain or still look too white, male and privileged?

Isn’t that a bit.. erm..racist? What’s wrong with being WHITE, exactly? 82% of the UK population is white so it strikes me that having a largely white cabinet is far enough. Around half the population is MALE, and political life attracts many more men than women, a reflection on how sensible women are! As for the “privileged” angle, check out the background of MOST of the comrades in Labour if you want to look for silver spoons in mouth!

No, this is a total irrelevance. Yes, Cameron IS running out of time, but that is because he is not governing as a Conservative. THAT is the point. This toxic coalition with the Lib-Dems has seen off any chance of proper Conservative policies being implemented and all we get, at best, is muted promises of jam tomorrow but never jam today. Cameron is heading for a massive defeat in 2015 and that may be a good thing. We need rid of faux Conservatives.

1) Strip the 7th Armoured Division (the Desert Rats) of its tanks

2) Supply armoured vehicles to a bunch of islamic yahoos in Syria

I’m sure that makes sense to someone.

I know he portrays himself as a kind of avuncular jazz loving cigar smoking hushpuppy wearing genial chap BUT Ken Clarke is a menace and always has been. He was one of those who stabbed Thatcher in the back, he has been a long standing advocate of the UK joining the Euro, and he is a great example of a Conservative in Name Only – A CINO.

VETERAN pro-Europe Cabinet Minister Ken Clarke yesterday spread new confusion over the Government’s policy on the EU’s proposed budget increase. Mr Clarke, 72, at first said it was “ludicrous and absurd” for David Cameron to go to crunch budget talks later this month intending to veto a deal. But he later backed Britain’s right to block a bad outcome, saying: “We have an undoubted right to exercise a veto if we cannot negotiate a satisfactory conclusion.”

Obviously Number Ten had a word but the fact that Clarke felt moved to ridicule his own Party Leader for at least TRYING to stop the EU from hiking its running costs EVEN more tells you all that you need to know about him!

I have to say that I find him a tad clown-ish BUT he has a populist instinct and it may well lead him to the role of next Conservative Leader.

Boris Johnson has urged Prime Minister David Cameron to stop “pussyfooting around” and invest in major infrastructure projects in London. The Mayor of London told the Evening Standard that money should be spent on projects such as Crossrail 2 and extra river crossings. He said he still supported plans for an airport on an artificial island – dubbed “Boris Island” – in the Thames. A Number 10 spokesman said Mr Cameron had declined to comment. Mr Johnson said: “This is the time to be ambitious about London and what it can do for Britain.

Johnson is saying popular things and in a way I reckon he is outflanking Cameron. Obviously Boris is manoeuvring like mad here and he is doing so with some aplomb. I bet Cameron hates him! Would such a maverick make a good leader though?

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, is frequently touted as the next leader of the Conservative Party. Here he is, trapped on a zip wire, at the Olympics yesterday. If this is what British “Conservatism” looks like, spare me it.

The thing about being a nominal Conservative is that eventually some of the sheep work it out but what they then aim to do about it is truly amazing …

More than a third of people who voted Conservative at the last election will refuse to back David Cameron in future,

Rejoice? Right? At last a desire for authentic Conservatism? Nope..read on…

“..but the Tories will not stay in power by drifting to the Right, research has found.”

Ah, that oh so elusive research,  So to stay in power the Conservatives  need to take on more Liberal Democrat values..you know, the folks who want to force gay marriage, wreck the Lords, put a windmill in every front room etc.

So, in summary, people reckon that Cameron is getting weaker and weaker on he economy, so he could lose 30% of those who supported him in 2010, but on the other hand if he becomes more leftward, then he MIGHT get back,.

Simple message; Under NO circumstances vote Conservative.

Good old Tories, they never let you down. On the day we ‘celebrate’ Armed Forces Day we discover that the Tories have found again their historic task, that of gutting the Armed Forces. Not content with shredding the Royal Navy of any serious capability, they’ve now moved on to the British Army.

The Government will outline next Thursday which units will be cut or merged under the Future Force 2020 proposals as the Army shrinks to 82,000 men, its lowest level since the Napoleonic Wars […]

The plans put forward by Lt Gen Nick Carter will be the biggest change to the Army since 1904.

Well done Tories, I knew you’d be back on form before long. (Memo to Tory voters: there’s still time to shoot yourselves in the head before the next general Election.)

The good news is that future Tory governments won’t be chopping off enormous bits of the Armed Forces. The bad news is there won’t be anything to chop.
