Cameron does have policies, very clear ones for those who wish to see.

They include high taxation, ever-closer European integration, a larger state, the promotion of political correctness and unthinking acceptance of the AGW fraud.

His vision for the future is two or possibly even three terms in office, followed by a grander but less stressful job on the international stage.

Yes, of course Gordon Brown is a disaster. But a greater disaster than a Labour victory would be a "New" Tory victory, as that would spell the end of conservative opposition for a generation.

Policies that are listed as response to people's policies are not policies....Politicians have to make choices as to what is best for long term, mid term and short term for betterment of a country....What he has got is a vote carrot and a short term fix - that appears on paper appealing to voters....After that it's downhill all the way...!

That is the trouble - these are not a response to anything. These are the essence of his party. The Tories are a large state, centre-left party.

At the risk of starting another pointless argument about language, a policy is a policy no matter what the motivation or circumstances. It is simply a thing that a political party states that it intends to do.

The tories want to decrease big government and spending, not increase it., its labour that have done that and completely f***cked a good economy through gross incompetence and mismanagement, labour should be kicked out now before we go bankrupt

Like whats been said a complete overhall of the system is needed which includes imo criminal prosecutions from corruption to treason.... These people need to be more accountable not less...

Unfortunately things are going to get much worse when we go all in with europe, we are going to get shafted even more, a legion of faceless beaurocrats awaits.....

I agree about Labour, but where is the evidence that the Tories want a smaller state? Only two years ago they were talking about matching Labour's spending plans and "sharing the proceeds of growth". They have no serious comittment to reducing the size of the state.

Trust me, vote Tory and get another 5 years of Labour.

If you only knew how many times that has been considered you may well be not that surprised. I should have listened to the Mrs before we had the kids but didn't have the money or the balls to make the jump at the time.

I will see my two children through university (hopefully) and then leg it. I can guarantee one point and that is my retirement will definately be abroad.

Well I would not go as far as digging up (Lord) David Sutch because that is frankly rather creepy. However, if there were such (purdon the pan) a thing as conjuring up his spirit, then I would support that. It should be remembered though that, unlike most political parties, the aims of the Monster Raving Loonie Party have largely already been met, e.g. "votes for teenagers", and, er, that was about it, I think.

I agree with you that the Brit pollies are pretty poor but you might get a nasty surprise moving abroad to find that theirs are a whole lot worse

Re: Vote Labour

I have not lived in the UK since 1965. The last ime I visited the UK was in 1987. Since then, with no close relatives left, we have gone elsewhere for our holidays.

That is not to say that I do not, sometimes, wish that I had never left. If you are a native Londoner or anywhere else in the UK, that does not happen. The place has got you, for better or for worse.
If anyone wants to come to Spain, remember, it is not the place it used to be. It's changed for the better for many Spaniards but there is a lot of nostalgia for the old days.

We, all, have to move on and, if you don't like it, instead of leaving for an unknown location, get out and vote, at least. Statistics show that most can't be bothered

The latest referendum (unofficial) by Catalans said that 95% wanted independence. A later count showed that only about 33% voted. The minority get their people out voting while the majority sit and moan about it, afterwards.

My dad, a London bus driver, told me that the known communists all turned up for a garage strike meeting. Sometimes there were as few as six there but they could bring a whole garage out!

Sometimes, I wonder if we deserve democracy.

Until the emphasis shifts that govt is there to serve and not to rule...then nothing will improve.

Labour are not the natural party of govt...is it any wonder they always fk it up !

London is a cesspit of sh!te and getting worse...there's nothing good to say about it and I am so pleased I don't have to bother with it at all.

I always vote by the way. I did vote for Thatcher first time round. I also did vote for Blair once (first time). I now vote liberal. I consider my self a floating voter. Don't care much for any side at all.
