My good friend at Witterings from Witney posts the following:
According to the News of the World David Cameron will tell us tomorrow that we need him! FFS – we need more of the same like we need another hole in our heads!
The NOTW report says Cameron will give another pledge – to hard-working families that he will repay their support by putting them — and the country — first. Firstly, he has shown his pledges are worthless as he just keeps breaking them. Secondly, if he really did intend to put the country first, he would abandon his dictatorial denial to the country and allow them a referendum on our membership of the EU!
Were I a Conservative Party member or supporter I would be worried, big time, that with this speech, as reported, Cameron had lost it – and I don’t mean the election because that. at the moment, is already lost.
Writing in the NOTW Cameron says “We also need to bring this approach to the way we do politics in this country, so we will hand vast swathes of power back to people. It’s your street, it’s your neighbourhood, it’s your police force, it’s your school — so we’re going to let you take control of it.” And our country, iDave? You seem to have missed that bit out – I wonder why? You are not going to let us take control of our country then?
“Responsibility and aspiration. Two simple values that will have a profound effect on our country.” It is to be regretted that the two simple values Cameron thinks will have a profound effect on our country are the two values that are so noticable in him and his party by their absence!
Whether Cameron likes it or not, whether Cameron wants it or not, the EU is top of the agenda for the majority of voters in the UK. He will ignore this at his peril.
I would suggest that you do not dare to call yourself a patriot until you start to act like one. There will be an awful lot of people on polling day saying, No pledge on the EU, No vote.
Sorry Dave, but you are single handedly killing any support for the Conservative party by ignoring the conservative party, and the voting public at large.
They know you cannot implement most of your manifesto promises without EU permission, which is why Osborne wants 6 months before he produces his budget, and we all know they will not give that permission.
We all noticed that you have done a U-Turn on your commitment to abolish the RDA’s, and now say you will only reform them. Part of the message that Clarke took to Brussels.
You may think you are suppressing the debate, but you can never suppress the idea.
Don’t say you were not warned.
