Why we must all vote Tory......

Recommended Posts

A quote from Bland-boy Cameron today, saying why voting LD is baaaaaad, and likely to leave Gordy in power:

"You could easily wake up on May 7 and find literally you are stuck with what you have got, you are stuck with Gordon Brown in Downing Street, you're stuck with a deficit,........"

 

But, if you vote Tory, the good luck fairies will come and magic the deficit away. :lol:

I see some hoodlum has ripped the head off my MP on the Conservative sign approaching my village.:rolleyes:

 

Political protest dune, not vandalism.

 

Someome has edited my Tory candidate's name from Bernard Jenkin to Bernard Jerkin - not the most witty of protests but it just goes to show you how people feel about the blue few, and I'm not talking about Pompey. Anyone else have any stories of Tories getting defaced? (Oooh, it sounds like a posh porno).

It's front page news in the local paper about someone tipping black paint on the Tory signs. There aren't any Liberal or Labour sings though for me to strike back on.;)

Given that the vast majority of the CONservative posters I've seen have Gordy's face on them, I'm sure you could think of some creative additions :)

Not seen one of those. Ours are either blank vote for change vote conservative or pics of the MP (minus the head).

Lucy Pinder is one of my FB friends... she calls herself a posh Tory...

 

Actually, all she does on FB is advertise her own site...

I used to drive up the A286 to join the A3 when driving to London from Chichester. At Milford (just before joining the A3), there used to be a poster for Virginia Bottomly for quite a few elections. Each time, someone had crossed out the 'ia' and the 'ly'. I'll leave you to work it out.

Peter did though. She was prob quite sexy in her time.

Back to the subject.....Part of me wants Labour to win, so that I can watch Fraudon impose deeper cuts in Public Spending than those imposed by Thatcher. I actually think that watching all the socialists squirm will be quite funny. They'll end up hating him more than they hate 'her'.

 

I also wouldn't mind Cleggy getting in as it will be quite funny watching him call the IMF in within 12 months when they have completely avoided the issue of the defecit (which isn't even in the top 4 of their priorites) and we are bankrupt as a nation.

 

Maybe a bit sadistic and perverse, but quite funny nevertheless.

Whilst the Tories will "cut civil service costs by a third over five years" by "not filling vacancies as they arise".

+1,

 

It's just been on the news asking how Labour and Tory voters (that are thinking of switching) will react to the Liberals going with the party they, the voter, least likes. I really think you're the ones jumping the gun and counting your chickens too soon. In places like Eastleigh and even Winchester (where a big swing would be needed) i'll be very interested in seeing the election results because a vote for the Liberals will mean a vote for Gordon Brown unless Clegg comes clean and clarifies his position.

I couldn't say whether this would work or not without knowing how many people are due to retire / leave over the next 5 years. Not sure it will make a third, but its a step in the right direction nevertheless.

 

As it happens, National debt is approaching £1 trillion with a deficit of £175 billion per annum. Now, let's say you have £10k on your credit card and you are adding £1k per annum to this balance, what would be your course of action????

 

1. Go out shopping

2. Do the gardening

3. Clean the car

4. Defrost the fridge

 

 

 

Oh ****, nearly forgot, try to work out how to sort out your finances.

 

This is akin to Lib Dem policy where dealing with the defecit is not even within their top 4 priorities.

From the BBC summary of LD economic policy ;"identify and cut £15bn per year of lower priority spending to protect front-line services while reducing structural deficit at least as fast as Labour plans, beginning in 2011".

Compare this with the Tories "Aim to eliminate "the bulk" of the UK's structural deficit within five years beginning in 2010 with £6bn in cuts", and Labour "cutting the deficit by more than 50% by 2014 and reducing the structural deficit by at least two-thirds over the next parliament".

Why does it bother you Johnny Bogner? You have made good money under Labour as a businessman...

 

My view is that I grew my business despite politicians, not because of them (100+ hours a week for the first five years had quite a bit to do with it). Look, from a personal point of view I couldn't give monkeys, but for the future of all of us, we can't continue running this defecit and I don't want my grandchildren paying for 'our' excesses. We've mortgaged our childrens futures and this is plain wrong.

 

I actually want the "great" to be put back in to Britain and this requires a period of entrepreneurship. A step in the right direction is reducing the planned rise in NI. It is not taking money out of the economy and that claim by Fraudon is a total LIE. Not a total solution by any means, but a very small step.

 

The defecit needs to be dealt with, but the difficulty with this election is that none of the main parties will be honest about it because no-one wins elections by saying they will cut everything. But, I expect it to be a priority which seems to be the case with both the tories and labour (even if neither are being specific about it). As for the Lib Dems, it barely gets a mention in the detailed and costed Lib Dem manifesto and is not even in their top 4 priorities.

 

I fear for the future, not for me, but for the hard working people of this once great nation.

I think Johnny Bognor, that that is reasoned response from you for once. Every time you say Fraudon, you ruin your case with others on this site.

 

I appreciate the need for investors and risk and neither think that Labour or Conservative will give you a cheap chip these days (unless you are in Belize of course).

What tax would you raise. Me i'd put VAT up to 25%.

Top 5 tory priorities:

1, Act on National Debt

2, Get Britain working by boosting enterprise

3, Make Britain family friendly

4, Back the NHS

5, Raise standards in School

 

Labours Top Priorities:

1, Economy

2, Protecting Public Services

3, Political reform

 

Lib Dems top 4 priorities:

1, Fair taxes

2, Fair chance for every child

3, Fair future (creating a Green Britain)

4, Fair Deal (cleaning up politics)

 

 

Now as we are still in the wake of the worst recession since the WW2 with unprecedented levels of national debt, don't you think the Lib Dems have forgotten something quite pressing?

VAT is a regressive tax... it hits the poorest the hardest...

 

Fair point and that's another reason why the Liberals policy on income tax is bonkers. They're going to give back something like £17 billion, but only £1bn of that would go to the poorest and the dipstick MP that was trying to sell the policy then tried to wriggle out of it by saying something like the richest people fly more so theyll get the money back on air fares taxation. This is how bonkers Liberal policies are.

People like Vince Cable. They think he will run the country well. Actually, he can contribute to Gordon Brown's ideas.

 

Osborne is a light weight.

Agree, if I was DC, I would have ditched him years ago and installed Ken Clarke. Very popular across party lines and laid the foundations of unprecendented economic growth......the most successful chancellor in the last 40 years. He would give the tories more credibility. Osbourne is a ****.

Brown is the oracle, he'd really love VC giving him suggestions. Nah that'd never work out.

 

Osbourne is a lightweight, but he's got ken clarke to keep him on the sraight and narrow.

You might get arguments but getting out of a recession Brown, Clarke and Cable could whack down some bankers in a coalition...

Right this isn't me being anti Labour and anti Brown (although i can't stand either entity) but Brown couldn't work in a team full stop. Clarke and Cable could get on together.

 

 

Oooops, aren't we forgetting Darling is the chancellor, or are we simply accepting the fact he's a puppet?

There is a lot of wealth tied up with the super rich. I would give them a choice..... invest in British industry and British business and get tax relief. If you don't, you'll pay more in tax.

 

Unlocking this wealth would be a way in which we could drive the economy forward in the long term.

 

(Even Fuengirola Saint, our resident Communist, agreed with this proposal).

Both are puppets in my view. Although i accept Darling might be alright, but under Brown anyone is rendered useless.

 

Might well be that the price the LDs extract for entering a coalition with Labour would be replacing Brown with someone else.

Yeah and we all know who that would be. Cue smarmy Milliband as PM. Bring back Brown all is forgiven.
