The most common complaint against David Cameron is unfair and untrue. Critics keep charging that he has no policies – but in truth, now he has dropped his early attempt at kum-bay-ya Conservatism, Cameron is offering a fairly detailed prospectus. Unfortunately, it is of policies that will harm Britain.I wasn’t aware that Call-Me-Dave had actually dropped the soft Conservatism, but no matter…
Yes, New Labour has often been dire – but the people who say nothing could be worse are learning the hard way that it ain't so. Poring through Cameron's policy documents, I could find only one instance where there would be a clear improvement: he would not build a new terminal at Heathrow. He deserves credit for that.He deserves credit for supporting something you support? Fancy!
It is hard to escape the conclusion that Cameron and George Osborne can adopt policies that are so harmful towards ordinary people and the poor because they have never really known any. Barely a week passes without Osborne making a slip showing he is surreally out of touch.Unfortunately for chubby-chops, just as he was penning his opus, a NuLab Minister was about to reclaim the ‘Out of Touch’ crown in spectacular fashion:
Women will be put off standing for Parliament unless they can hire a cleaner on their expenses, a female minister claimed yesterday.Nice one, Helen!
The warning by Work and Pensions Minister Helen Goodman follows a call this week to ban cleaning expenses by Parliamentary sleaze watchdog Sir Christopher Kelly.
Miss Goodman, who earns £96,167, suggested this and other measures in the Kelly crackdown on MPs' expenses was sexist because women usually did the family cleaning.
That’ll advance the cause of women in politics, won’t it?
