I have proof that David Cameron is in league with…
OK, let’s look at the facts.
The image on the left was taken from a campaign poster. The image on the right, just a regular photograph. Spot the difference?
The one on the left, so smooth, almost plasticy. It’s an auton replica!!
David Cameron is in league with the autons and is using at least one of them to help him out with his campaigning. Must be.
Or it’s the result of over done make-up, or even a photoshop job.
This is going to be one of those emotional political statements that I disapprove of myself, but I hope you can forgive me.
Listening to the headlines, I’m left with a feeling that the Tories haven’t changed. Telling people that the Conservatives are bad news may not be what many people want to hear, particularly those riled to the point of rage with Brown and looking for reasons to justify it.
The overwhelming impression I got from listening to the message of “tough choices” and “all of us in it together”, is that these weren’t tough choices. Was it an anti-tory reaction, or are they using the post credit-crunch recession and the effect on the country’s bank balance to do what they wanted to do anyway? I had the feeling that deep down they wanted to make cuts, and were scarcely suppressing the urge to rub their hands in glee at such an excuse.
Was the gamble that the electorate are so cheesed off with Labour that they’ll just accept the Tory line, without any polish or presentation. They won’t even be able to shout “liars” when they get what they voted for as its been given to them straight.
Edit: Well it appears my Lib Dem PPC Nader has a similar impression
OK it’s a bit cheap but “eccentric” conservative MEP Danniel Hannan has form.
Here he is on Iceland back in 2004 before, er, you know.
Hat tip to Mark C.
Got to hand it to David Cameron, he knows a good idea when he sees one.
Two recent examples are him following not so hot on the heels of the Lib Dem webcasts with Webcameron. Essentially Webcameron is the ideas we pioneerd only with added spin and fakery.
The other being taking on our green tax agenda, only perhaps a bit more luke warmly. Still luke warm, saving energy, good for the planet y’know.
I’m the sort of person who supports the lib dems because I think they want to run things the way they should be run. My main desire is to see the world becoming as good a place as possible, so it’s pleasing when others begin to “get it”. OK I have nagging doubts that the substance of Cameron matches the style, but praise where praise is due.
Which shows that I too can nick a good idea…
Two things spring out for comment today.
The first is the creeping tide of racism. The media seems to be making racism, hate and discrimination OK again, with any objections being described as anti free speech, or “PC”.
Michael Howard put out a self-contradictory message yesterday, condemning the BNP as a stain on Britain’s character, before going on to spout the kind of myths and hyperbole about asylum seekers that tell people it’s OK to be racist and vote BNP.
And his cronies at Cathartical Bleed Worm call the Lib Dems “Januslike”? Sheesh.
You’ve got to hand it to Michael Howard’s Conservatives. (Well you don’t but that won’t stop them.) Jumping on the bandwagon by joining the Lib Dems’ calls for an inquiry into the intelligence and decision making leading to the Iraq war. Are they trying to convince us that they aren’t in it up to their necks alongside Labour? Are they trying to make us forget they egged the government on at every step of the way, while the Lib Dems’ urged care and caution.
As empty a piece of rhetoric as Michael Howard’s “beliefs”.
