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For some unknown reason, David Cameron and his advisers seem to think that a lot of Conservative voters’ values are out-of-date and need to be modernised and thrown out.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