If the Conservatives can’t beat this incompetent shower...

They were elected as New Labour, and they promised to govern as New Labour.

And yet they have done exactly what Old Labour have always done: bankrupted the country.

And the man responsible for a decade of economic inefficiency and fiscal incompetence as Chancellor of the Exchequer is now Her Majesty’s First Lord of the Treasury.

He was never elected as Prime Minister: he is distrusted by the majority of the nation, criticised by his own Chancellor, loathed by his own ministers and despised by many of his backbenchers.

This Labour Government took us to war on a false premise; has replaced Cabinet government with a politburo; diminished democracy; marginalised Parliament; taken in three million immigrants; saddled us with recession and soaring unemployment; given us the highest youth unemployment in history; eroded our liberties; abolished the right to trial by jury; raped the Constitution; politicised the civil service; sold off our gold reserves at the bottom of the market; raided our pensions; subjected us to the Lisbon Treaty; relegated us from 7th to 24th in international maths and literacy rankings; increased pensioner poverty; increased inequality; caused fascists to be elected to Brussels; massively increased our tax burden; imposed an incredible 5000 new laws; created an authoritarian state and thoroughly debased our politics.

After 13 long years of extravagant spending, sinister social engineering, welfare expansion, uncontrolled immigration, endless fiddling with the electoral system, unparalleled electoral fraud, grotesque state encroachment into private lives and personal affairs and now a devalued currency, we have what must be the most stunningly incompetent government in the history of the United Kingdom (and God knows there are quite a few to choose from), and the most ideologically illiberal, oppressive and anti-Christian in centuries.

You would think the Conservative Party would be on course for an electoral landslide.

Of course, polls can be notoriously unreliable and are subject to trivial whims and sometimes inexplicable volatilities. A year ago, the Party was on course for a resounding victory. Polls were consistently showing a 10-point lead over Labour, and did so for a convincing period of time.

Then it went down to 6.

And last weekend is was 2.

And God knows what it is at the moment.

But wherever the swingometer is presently pointing, whatever wafer-thin majority the most optimistic polls suggest the Conservatives might win after the votes are cast, there is no security at all that it will stay there.

If recent polls are to be believed, we appear to be on course for a hung parliament, a dead heat, a score draw in which David Cameron might just or just might not form the largest party.

How can this be?

David Cameron was the future, once.

What is there to prefer in Gordon Brown? What is remotely attractive about voting for another 5 years (FIVE YEARS) of Peter Mandelson, Ed Balls and Harpy Hormone?

Cranmer beseeches the electorate, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken.

New Labour have abandoned their Christian foundations; they have cast aside all that may ever have been true, noble and good and supplanted it with duplicity, avarice and the stench of sleaze. Their principles have been shredded, and their sense of righteous morality pulped and recycled as an idol to every god in the firmament but the One who is known. Labour have become the party of war, the party of torture, the party of exploitation and the party of deception. They reward the thieves and fraudsters with ‘rights’ while penalising the law-abiding and responsible. As former Labour MP Bryan Gould observes: Labour’s achievements ‘have been molehills, judged against the towering peaks scaled by New Labour in its rejection not only of Labour, but of any decent and civilised values’.

New Labour has ceased to be civilised, for they have no clear vision of the meaning of this civility. It is no longer good, for it has lost sight of the common good by inflicting us with a plethora of uncommon relativist goods. This recession may be global, but it is New Labour’s fault that the United Kingdom is the worst place nation in the western world to cope with its effects. They have become the embodiment of that for which it always despised the Conservatives: it is now the undoubted party of unemployment, recession, inflation, and poverty.

Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.

It is difficult to have faith in a Conservative victory when the hope is totally dependent on the ‘marginal seat strategy’ which most certainly exists but is equally certainly unseen.

Or at least the strategy is given no particular credence by opinion pollsters.

But if it be true that elections are won and lost not by ‘national swings’ or by parties throwing money at all constituencies but instead by the very few key marginal seats which most easily change hands, why do opinion polls focus on the national picture when the outcome is more accurately determined in the electoral microcosm?

Why are pollsters not providing us principally with the results in those seats where there will be a real contest; where Lord Ashcroft has been pumping millions of pounds?

Psephology aside, the Conservative Party needs to mend some fences with their ‘Turnip Taliban’, the ‘dinosaurs’ and their ‘backwoodsmen’.

It is one thing to reach out to the ‘middle ground’, but quite another to do it at the expense of one’s core vote. The Party leadership might just consider that these turnips, dinosaurs and backwoodsmen are not all out-of-touch, anachronistic eccentrics, but intelligent and discerning individuals possessing of more conservative philosophy in their little fingers than some of the Party’s key strategists appear to manifest in their entire beings.

Swing voters aside, those who have consistently and unwaveringly voted for the Conservative Party have done so because they are conservatives. They have the innate intelligence to see beyond the superficial, anodyne and banal. Their notion of diversity is more than skin deep: it is not dependent on gender, ethnicity, sexuality or disability, but on profession, achievement, religion, philosophy and worldview. The shifting sands of a nebulous and platitudinous ecumenical ‘broad appeal’ are no substitute for the rock of the ‘broad church’ laity.

Not least because all attempts by a centralist cabal of Notting Hill clerics to re-build the broad church upon a foundation of shifting sand will have the inevitable consequences.

Two photographs of showers: one showing Brown, Harman, Straw, Johnson; the other giving us Cameron, Osborne, May and then some geezer in the increasingly out-of-focus background. Maybe out-of-focus is the clue? Maybe May's characterisation of the 'nasty party' has come back to bite her? There are few nastier than she.

How odd and ironic it is, that the Conservatives are not conservative, and Labour do nothing for the labourers.

Why should we vote for either of these unprincipled, traitorous, unpleasant showers?

They're as bad as each other, almost indistinguishable in anything other than minor details.

Labour have imported 3 million Labour voters. Simple, really. And, more, you've noted on the news that any problem is resolved by throwing money at it. Local government settlement? Highest on record. Legal aid for the 7/7 victims? No problem, guvnor.

People will always vote for the party who offers them the best freebies, and Labour is excellent at this. The fact that we're £200b down and sinking fast doesn't matter to the man in the street who looks for the best deal going for him/her personally

And the fact that the currency is sinking like a stone is of no concern to him

Alas it's highly likely that Labour may even be re-elected. Then the only solution will be to wipe off the debt with hyper inflation, taking the country's savings with it. But them as they will say, that only affects the rich, anyway, so who cares. They probably deserve it, for voting tory.

Lately, I've started buying foreign currency, since sterling will probably have halved come the election

He was never elected as Prime Minister

That is not how Parliament works. Lloyd George was not elected in 1916 nor was Neville Chamberlain in 1937, nor Winston Churchill in 1940 and he was not even Leader of the Conservative Party.

Macmillan was not elected when he succeeded Eden and Callaghan certainly was not elected when he succeeded Wilson, nor was Major when he succeeded Thatcher; and most bizarrely of all he resigned as Leader of the Conservative Party whilst remaining Prime Minister.

The system is simply the executive power of the Monarch exercised by the Prime Minister. In no self-respecting democracy would the Prime Minister choose the date of the election or anoint his successor, nor would he pack a Chamber of Parliament with his Placemen.

England never really had a revolution and Parliament took powers from the Monarch and gave them to a Cabal of their own to form a government

Cranmer said “Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see”

Therein lies your problem; faith leads you to delusion in politics as it does in religion. The old certainties have gone; the reassuring class divisions where everyone knew their place, the assumption that the Christian faith would provide the moral compass, the homogeneity of a plucky island race, forged by two world wars, the respect for order and authority, one can even feel nostalgia for the Cold War and for the reassuring equilibrium of Mutually Assured Destruction.

Certainty my friend is the enemy of progress as it carbonises ideas rather than allowing the flux of new thought. Uncomfortable as uncertainty may be is the only way ahead.

The political class has been totally discredited, the old allegiances are breaking down, the spectacle of PM Questions is as contrived as a TV wrestling match, the Queens Speech as anachronistic as a scene from Gilbert and Sullivan. Even the promises that each leader is about to offer us are as hollow as those of a used car salesman.

The future will be fragmented and that is why you are afraid. No firm trunk to lean upon, rather a forest of unsteady saplings each competing for their own piece of sky. I cannot foresee this future; I can only speculate that perhaps it will throw up alternative ways of living together and of organising ourselves that are different from those of the past. Allow yourself a least some trust in human nature and please try to dispel the fear that permeates many of the comments on this blog.

YG You said:
"New Labour have abandoned their Christian foundations".

The plain fact is that all three main political parties have completely abandoned any pretence of belief in Christianity, or forming policies based upon it.

I suggest that the issue for Christians as to which party to voter for in the coming GE is relatively simple: It is:

Because all three main parties deliberately oppose the law of God in at least two fundamentally important policy areas.
First, in denial of the sanctity of life through the murderous policy of abortion. 'Thou shalt not kill' is a God given commandment which is evident in the whole of the Bible's teaching.

Second, the denial of the sanctity and exclusiveness of the institution of marriage given in Genesis 1 & 2, with the legal substitution of the homosexual alternative.
The ONLY provision of God in a marriage relationship is, as we know full well, is that of a heterosexual one between one man and one woman for life.
"Civil partnerships" of two males are, from a Christian viewpoint, meaningless and illegal.

For Christians to vote for any of the three major parties which are united in promoting these policies is a denial of God's clearly revealed will and purpose.
To vote for such parties is to endorse their policies on these specific issues.
At the polling booth Christians are faced with a choice, not of one party or another, for all three are united here, but whether to endorse their commonly held denial of God in the public sphere, or to remain faithful to the word and law of God.
What God has joined together(His law, will and word,) thereby demanding our obedience, not let man put asunder.
In this respect Conservatives are as guilty as their political counterparts.

Your Grace

Cranmer beseeches the electorate, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken.

The Conservative High Command seems to think that they have been unelectable for the last 13 years because they did not project a liberal image. Now they do project a liberal image, why does the electorate fail to find them attractive? The answer is: for the same reason that the electorate does not find New Labour attractive.

Every time Cameron appears before the image of the green tree, the voters connect that with the Green agenda; the Green agenda is in turn associated with the climate change propaganda and that in turn is connected in their minds with Green taxes which they regard as a fraud.

Cameron stands their shouting: ‘Hope and Change’ and the voters believe that what they are being offered is Obama-Brown (when they have just told you they don’t want anymore of this left-liberal non-sense).

Unparalleled immigration has applied severe pressure in the inner-cities on whites, blacks and Asians: social services, public housing, jobs, police, NHS, density of population (overcrowding), violence and social conflict. Cameron has said that he wants to restrict immigration – but the message deposited in working-class communities by the fascists is that he can’t. And they are right. Britain’s borders under federal law stretch from Dublin in the West to Bucharest in the East; from Helsinki in the North to Athens in the South: free movement in the EU! That is why Brown could not deliver ‘British jobs for British workers’. Cameron can’t either. Further, if you want to emigrate to Britain you just need to pop into Bucharest and buy and EU passport turn up at Dover and state: ‘I am in priority.’

Through the Internet every religious community knows that EU law threatens their liberties: so why should we vote for Cameron who is committed to EU law? Why would headless chickens hand over a knife and fork to Mr David ‘Fox’ Cameron?

The Conservatives supported the family (which the EU does not and wishes to destroy through EU Directives) through tax breaks. They then turned their back on tax breaks. They have now reinstituted their policy on tax breaks and support single mothers (and we the tax payers have to pick up the tab): more failed socialism.

The Conservatives support gay-adoption. When we know that Christian adoption agencies have been closed down on that very issue and each month another Christian is hauled before the law courts and questioned about her Christian beliefs.
Mr Headless Chicken refuses to hand over the barbecue fuel to Mr Fox.

Labour have severed their roots in Methodism (it is Christian doctrine that can hold two apparently contradictory positions simultaneously in balance) and have become communist. The Conservatives have severed their roots in the Church of England (of yesteryear) and become the Socialist Party at Prayer.

At work millions of Britons have this ‘equality and diversity’ shoved down their throats; their very thoughts are placed under suspicion and the victims then indulge in the worst form of oppression: self-censorship.

We are angry. We are tired. We are frustrated. We are intimidated.

Most men are natural conservatives: they long for social peace. The Conservatives are going to deny us that.

There is a culture war going on. You Conservatives might be slick in the way you articulate issues and use sophisticated techniques. But the man on the Clapham Omnibus thinks the same thoughts too.

You are on the wrong side of the culture war. In other words you have divided yourselves from the British people.

The reason why Cameron is incoherent is this: he wants to be Buster Keaton wearing the Confederate uniform on one side, as the Tory Right groans; and the Union uniform on the other as the left-liberals in the Party cheer.

A word from the good Book:

They are a nation without sense,
there is no discernment in them.
If only they were wise and would understand this,
and discern what their end would be.
Their vine comes from the vine of Sodom
and from the fields of Gomorrah.
Their grapes are filled with poison,
and their clusters with bitterness.
Their wine is the venom of serpents,
the deadly poison of cobras.
Deuteronomy 32:28-29,32-33

The Conservatives have misjudged the British people by grafting themselves into this poisonous vine, and it seems, will reap the consequences. They don't have discernment - we might say, there is no clear blue water between Conservative and Labour any more.
Lord, have mercy.

Cameron uses words like 'radical' yet offers no radical policies.

If he is radical, he would be saying that the EU is no longer the future for Britain.

Immigration would be dependent on a work permit.

The Human Rights Act would be repealed.

He would make the abolition of income tax a long term aim, achieved by steadily increasing allowances. If we are to have immigrants let them be billionaires.
His only radical policy is to free schools from LEA control.

If you talk radical but do not provide radical meat, then the people will not believe you.

Cameron is unbelievable and therefore people like me and most of my friends will not be voting for him. The core are going elsewhere.

Good post, and I largely agree with HG. Mr Cameron should have widened the appeal of the party to take on centre-ground issues but without losing conservative-values voters.

So his commitment to the NHS and front-line public services, to the environment, and to tackling the root causes of poverty and deprivation, are excellent. But his weakness on the EU, the latest example being sending Ken Clarke to reassure our Masters in Brussels (as Lord Tebbit calls them), when voters are becoming more EU-sceptic; seeking support of gay activists by wanting homosexuality taught in schools as normal as heterosexual marriage, and trying to bully the CofE to adopt the Harman socialist equality agenda, (these un-Christian stances compare with Gordon Brown’s seemingly principled Christian statement against legalising assisted suicide), siding with Labour's erosion of our basic freedoms of speech, religion and association and so on that mark a free society, seem designed to scare off core conservative values voters.

So when people are fed up with this Labour Government, when voters are concerned about brokenness in society, and when many are prepared for tough cuts in wasteful spending (as long as the NHS and delivery of front-line services is protected) to mend our broken economy and when opinion had shifted more in favour of tax cuts with people feeling they pay too much tax, the 20 point lead at the time of Crewe and Nantwich and the IHT cut promise has declined to a mere 2-6 point lead.

It must be said that the election of a Cameron-led Govt would obviously be an improvement (e.g. support for marriage in the tax system, that more pro-life MPs would be elected, scrapping of ID cards, fairer voting through equal-sized constituencies...) but the voters aren't convinced. Perhaps DC has spent too much time courting metropolitan lib-left’s favoured minority groups and BBC types who'd probably never vote Tory anyway, while core conservative-values have been made unwelcome. It sometimes feels as if a takeover has happened involving taking the 'conservative' out of the Conservative Party.

In sum, be 'centre' where voters are 'centre' (NHS, front-line public services, environment and so on) but more 'traditionalist'/ right-wing where voters are more ‘right-wing’ (family, EU-scepticism, crime/punishment

The fact is that Cameron has no conservative instincts. He follows a few conservative paths because his focus groups tell him to do so. He is not following any consistent philosophy or vision.

Contrast Cameron with Michael Foot, whose death has just been announced. Foot had clear principles and offered them to the electorate. We may disagree with them, but we knew what they were.

Cameron is led by no guiding principle. In this he is truly the heir to Blair. Why should anybody want to bother replacing Brown with Cameron? Everything that matters would be unchanged.

The ‘fascists’ would free us from the European Union, they would stop immigration, they would deport all illegal immigrants, they would halt the Islamization of Britain. In other words, they are patriotic. On top of that, their willingness to defend Christianity puts the Churches to shame.

How I wish Your Grace would think outside the box of the two party system. The Conservative Party is no longer conservative—it is just as sold on the nation-destroying tactics of the Frankfurt School as Labour and the Liberal Democrats. The Conservative Party in its present guise has outlived its usefulness. A mercy killing is called for so that a truly conservative party can rise in its place.

The Bishop's Conference of England and Wales has just issued a document: Choosing The Common Good.

I especially like the bit about virtue (I am in need of much virtue, but....): "Justice towards God is the ‘virtue of
religion’ which frees us from the tyranny of false gods who
would claim our worship."

"The practice of virtue helps to shape us as people. By
the pursuit of virtue we act well not because of external
constraint but because it has become natural for us to do
so. The virtues form us as moral agents, so that we do what
is right and honourable for no other reason than that it is
right and honourable, irrespective of reward and regardless
of what we are legally obliged to do. Virtuous action springs
from a sense of one’s own dignity and that of others, and
from self-respect as a citizen. It is doing good even when noone
is looking."

And this is where we have gone wrong, or should I say where NuLabour have gone wrong by casting the idolatrous image of state worship as the new God, and thus diminishing the need for virtue. We have in the place of virtue the lazy man's plethora of regulation and excuses for bad behaviour and ignorance. But where is the oposition to this? Where has been courage? Who stood up to be counted against the tsunami of the Antichrist?

There is one more issue that I think is worth drawing to Cameron’s attention. Blair arrived at the tail-end of 18 years of Conservative administration.

He sensed that the people wanted change (as they do now).

And what was his approach? He played the role of a counter-cultural revolutionary. He had one strategic domestic political goal: destroy the forces of conservatism.

Every speech and every act became a revolutionary act that mesmerised the press and the people.

Cameron now is more or less in the same position as was Blair.

Cameron has a God-given advantage; the nature of Man: it is essentially conservative. We are in a recession. And what do the people do for leisure? They have turned to the classics of literature. In other words, they yearn for conservative values which they can only experience vicariously.

BBC executives know this; that is why DVD sales of such classic movies as Pride and Prejudice are popular.

The social tsunami is conservatism – and Cameron is without his surf-board.

The Referee has blown the half-time whistle. Now that rare moment has appeared, the Sun has stood still; the Moon has stopped in its orbit. And that time has come for Cameron to make that speech that resonates with the rhythms and cadences of Henry V.

'In a rare break with normal procedure announced only yesterday, the political parties agreed to sit late into the night to allow the Bill to receive its entire Report Stage in one day.

'This led to Lord Alli’s amendment being reached late last night – when scores of Peers who would have voted against it were not in the House.'

Thank you for this very good article. For my mind it precisely encapsulates Nu Labour. What have we done to deserve such punishment? It is quite incredible that they have reached the low 30's in the polls. They are, without a shadow of doubt, the worst government ever to have been visited on the UK.

Tell us, what is different about the Cons? The 44 ethnic candidate shortlist is a con, with registered UK non-domicile for tax purposes. Let's not forget Ashcroft in the cash for Peerages” controversy. They there were those MPs involved in the expenses scandal. Cameron won't get his backside out of the EU, and won't promise us a referendum on it, but even if he did it would be a waste of time because it will be tweaked until we vote 'yes.' So YG, what is the point of voting for anybody? Please don't say UKIP!!!! They've been put there by the LibLabConners. You know, a lot of the public can't be conned but many are disheartened which is what the globalists have strived for these past 100 years.

I agree with Your Grace, if we don't vote Conservative we are done for.

You might not like the way the Conservative party is conducting itself, but a vote for UKIP or an independent would be disastrous.
Another week with this Labour government is more than I can bear to contemplate; let's get them out and then see what can be done.

And, by the way, Lord Ali will go down in the annals of infamy as the destroyer of England as a Christian country with the Church at its centre. This destructive bill will have no effect on Islam (they will ignore it and they have nothing to do with religious marriage anyway) but the damage it will do to Christianity is enormous.

It is saddening that the Conservatives have not openly pledged to repeal it - but maybe I'm being naive, perhaps their hands are tied.

Enter Stuart Wheeler, holding a dagger

STUART WHEELER: My doubts about his commitment to doing anything effective were increased this week when I was told that he had got 70 Conservative MPs together and told them the EU issue did not matter.

We must stop the NuLab vandalism as a number one priority. It is the only way forward. Everything else is secondary. There is only one way to do this. UKIP is not an option.

@ philip walling (18:15)—Lord Ali will go down in the annals of infamy as the destroyer of England as a Christian country with the Church at its centre.

That honour goes, rather, to the Conservative and Labour governments of the last 60 years. It was they who planted the seeds of Islam, and it is Islam that will destroy England as a Christian country.

Nulab (and Blulab) are just EU puppets. Neutering Brussels is the number one priority. Don't lose sight of this fundamental goal. To ensure our national survival we have to get out of the EU. There is no point whatsoever in voting for any party that will not break from Brussels and restore our national sovereignty. It is time to smash the current political mould once and for all. There is nothing now that will induce me to vote for any of the major parties. If enough people feel and act in the same way who knows how many patriots we can get into the mix of a hung parliament and what might become achievable.

Mr Rottenborough

I agree, we appear to be on an inexorable decline, but I don't think it's Islam that has destroyed us; Islam and international capitalism have simply flowed into the vacuum created by liberal moral relativism.

In other words, we have destroyed ourselves.

I am a working class conservative, (there are lots of us, probably more than middle class ones)
I will NEVER vote for the Conservative party whilst it continues in it's present policies/attitudes:
1)Political correctness, imposing ethnic minority candidates,(and women).If they are going to continue labours policy of giving my country away where's the difference?.And I'm not the only one who feels that way.I suspect/hope that they will lose some safe seats where they have imposed ethnic minority candidates.Remember lord taylor?
2)Insulting anyone who shows any sign of independent thought or espouses "old fashioned" conservative values. Where's the difference?.
3)In a country where EIGHT MILLION live off the state, with jobs still being lost, talking of reducing (yeah),not halting immigration.
Where's the difference ?.
I could go on and on.NONE of the parties will give me the country that I loved so much back.NONE of them will give my children and grandchildren a safe, prosperous future.In fact, the way things are going they look likely to have to fight a civil war,or at best, live as third class citizens in an islamic caliphate.
Well they can all f%$£ off.They offer us nothing but self destruction.I won't legitamise them by voting for them.
Another five years of labour?.YES PLEASE the f%^$£"&* plankton that pass for an electorate in this country put them in.Let 'em suffer.
If this comment comes across as bitter-GOOD.They have robbed me of every hope and aspiration for the future.

Even if Labour wins, they will not be able to hold on to government for very long.

The country is bankrupt, and it will not be long before Labour disintegrates completely and an early election will have to be called.

After that happens, the Tories will find it much easier to govern than if they win now.

And if the Tories are not trying to avoid winning at all costs whilst looking reasonable keen (for small values thereof), then the chronic incompetence of the Tory party that we are currently seeing will be no better than what Labour is showing us.

Alas, I think that anyone who votes Conservatives is actually voting for a memory of the party that Maggie Thatcher once lead and not the anemic, unprincipled rabble that now owns the Conservative brand.

Mr Anonymous @ 21.04,

I have the greatest sympathy for your feelings - and it's the loss of the working class Tories that has done the greatest harm to the Conservative party in the last two decades - but times have changed whether you like it or not (and I don't like it one bit).

It should never be forgotten that it is a mark of great integrity for a working man to remain a Tory when all the influences during the last hundred years encouraging him to abandon his principles and act out of self-interest would have turned a lesser person into a 'socialist'.

Working class Tories are people of principle and the current Conservative party neglects them at its peril - the results of which we are seeing now.

I agree with nearly all you say, but this country is really finished (beyond just making Labour clear up its own mess) if Labour gets back in.
I urge you for the sake of our children and grandchildren to vote Conservative even if it's only to see what they can do.

All Labour supporters are going to continue to place their cross by would be Labour MP's. They like their own Political Party in Government and they want it to continue.

Conservative Voters also want their own Political Party to actually Govern this Country, yet they also know, that as long as this Country remains in the EU NO BRITISH GOVERNMENT CAN ACTUALLY MAKE ALL THE LAWS suitable to a free and sovereign British Government. Because of that, many people that used to vote Conservative won't, they will vote for UKIP or if no UKIP the BNP, or Green etc.

The LibDems have always made clear they want to be in the European Union. The may gain a few votes if only because they have always told the truth of what they want to do. ie, let foreigners Govern this Country forever.

From the above, Labour may very well get in for a fourth term.

Will this then be the end of every nation State? Will the EU become the one STATE from which we will never be able to get out of?
The answer is YES-very likely, for what do any of you really think all this "deeper and closer integration" into the European Union is all about eh? Yes, I can even tell you exactly how it will happen.

we have what must be the most stunningly incompetent government in the history of the United Kingdom (and God knows there are quite a few to choose from), and the most ideologically illiberal, oppressive and anti-Christian in centuries.

This government is all the things you say it is and a whole lot worse besides, except just one thing.

IT HAS NOT BEEN INCOMPETENT. Quite the opposite in fact.

For to be incompetent this government would have to have done all or even some of these things by accident.

Absolutely nothing is done in government by accident. Things may happen by accident. However these things usually go by the name of Acts Of God. However even many of these things are anything but
acts of any type of God I would wish to know.

EVERYTHING is done by design and are therefore acts that require many years of carefully advanced planning.

This government is a MARXIST government, run by long standing, self-confessed MARXISTS.

What else did you all expect?

The problem we have is that virtually no one has a slightest clue where Marxism did indeed came from. Therefore have no useful clue as to what Marxism really is. Which includes almost all of those that describe themselves as Marxists. However this vast and vastly ignorant number most certainly does not include the likes of Tony Blair, and Gordon Brown.

Brown most surly knows what Marxism is all about, which is why he must surly know that the banking system, along with its client multi-national corporations long since decided to bankrupt themselves. By which method they would install an extremely socialist New World Order. A NWO which they would control even more then they controlled the so called Cold War scamming, Old World Order.

The whole plan was outlined in a universally well read book, written by ex soviet Ayn Rand, and commissioned by her then lover Philip De Rothschild. Namely Atlas Shrugged. Which was not just a very over long-winded, and badly written novel. It was a blueprint, or indeed a codified instruction manual, for a future Fascist takeover of the entire planet. In much the same way 1984, Animal Farm, The Time Traveller and Brave New World undoubtedly were. Which were also all books written by supposed ex COMMUNISTS.

The worlds ruling elites are indeed corporate capitalists, but they are also, and far more dangerously, devout blood sucking COMMUNISTS. In other words very real FASCISTS.

Surly this is now self-apparent.

Not only is it so, there is mountains of very real actual evidence that demands that no other explanation of past, and more saliently, current world events, makes any logical sense whatsoever.


If you don't know what Communism intended to do to religion. Then don't bother reading a book on the subject. Just simply look around you.

However there is one particular very well established world religion that has nothing to fear from the future, and it certainly is NOT Islam, Judaism, or protestantism.

Let's have it then. On the face of it your analysis is laughable - no doubt that's all part of the conspiracy though. They've deliberately made it seem absurd so that no-one would believe it, except the really clever and insightful types like yourself of course.

Is Your Grace sure that the Conservatives do want to win? Could they be thinking that to put Mr Brown back for another year or 18 months, during which the country collapses about him, might not be a wiser strategy?

So puny are the Tory attacks, and so childishly inadequate their defences, that one cannot but wonder just what fish they are really frying.

After 18 months the electoral arithmetic will be very different, as boundary changes come into effect.

Either that, or they're just thundering duffers.

The anaysis by Atlas Shrugged is amusing; but there is no need to invoke covert Marxism to explain the depravities of the present administration. Surely it's enough that they are overt Scotsmen. Revenge for Flodden!

This election too is part of the communist plan,all three parties have exactly the same agenda,so whichever way you vote you will end up with the same thing,marxism.If you are given no alternative,democracy is destroyed at a stroke,we are no longer "free"people,since free people would have demanded a referendum,and if none were forthcomming ,would have organised thier own,as is our right,and the mechanism exists for withdrawl from the eussr,simply by stating that we no longer wish to be part of it and cease funding it.Still with thirty million in the bank why should cameron give a toss about the proles.

They should do what they did in the GDR and bring CDU and SPD and KPD into a new Socialist Unity Party (SED)- after all the differences between LIbDems, Cons and Labour are so marginal as to be cosmetic.

All are self-serving groups of peculators seeking personal advantage from public funds, and all subscribe to the EU-Marxist mantras of 1968 and Gramscian Politics.

The core of the parliamentary system has homogfensed forcing dissent to the extremes - the question is whether they will allow change through parliamentary means or force matters to a revolutionary extra-parliamentary opposition
