Cameron\’s crazed will to power

Our pragmatist Prime Minister David Cameron is set on winning a full term in No 10 so he can see through policies, not out of some crazed will to power

He has neither policies nor a crazed will to power. David Cameron\’s motivation is quite simply that the country ought to be run by people like David Cameron.

Doesn\’t matter in what direction, how well or how badly, just that the right people are running the place.

He\’s very like the Twin Eds in this.

  1. Very much like any politician in this.
    Saying that, would taking someone off the street, say Ritchie or Arnald, and making them PM instead be somehow better for the country?

  2. As a counterpoint to this it will make very little difference to the majority if any of the other political clones (Balls, Milliband junior, Milliband senior) get elected instead as they are all offering only mildly differentiated versions of pro-EU based socialism.

    The differences between LAB / LIB / CON have long since ceased to be idealogical and come down to little more than PR nowadays.

    Labour keeps historical features such as the National Exec and ties with the unions, but everyone is well aware that if they want to make “Real Money” as either MP or Euro MP they have to adjust to the Oxbridge PPE types.

    The only party that is different is UKIP, likely to become the 3rd party in the 2015, which is also why the Tories will lose the election to Labour in 2015.

  3. UKIP likely to become the 3rd party in 2015?.. I wouldn’t let the opinion polls fool you, with incumbent effects and a non-proportional antiquated voting system, I’d wager UKIP won’t win a single seat.. the Libdems vote will collapse but they’ll still win at least 25-30 seats.. bearing in mind that in 38 of the 57 they won last time, their main rivals are the Tories..

    As for UKIP being different, I seem to recall that’s exactly what everyone was saying about the Libdems.. and then they got their bums on the government benches………..

  4. @KJ:

    I never said that UKIP would win a single seat as with the UK first-past-the-post Parliamentary system that is unlikely to happen.

    I merely stated that the voters fleeing the Tory party to go to UKIP would cause them to lose sufficient votes in Tory marginals that Labour would will win an outright victory in 2015.

    UKIP is the natural home for Conservatives and others who feel betrayed by David Cameron’s Blue Labour coalition.

    As for the consequences of Labour serving a full term in 2015, quite simply given David Cameron’s behaviour the Tories deserve to be thrown out of power.

    Perhaps another round of idiocy from Labour will provide the necessary catharsis for a genuinely Conservative party to be elected in 2020.

    Frankly without someone in charge who has the backbone to deal ruthlessly with the deficit by cutting out whole layers of unnecessary civil service, quango’s and local government the UK is likely to still be in recession / depression in 2020.

    Then look for depression in 2020.

    I’m depressed already.

    In the USA we can it Obamaism.

  7. I’ve decided that what we need is a good distraction from all of this economic bad news.

    So I’m starting a campaign to have David Cameron help with UN and Argentinian demands to reunify the Falkland Islands with Argentina.

    The best way of doing this is to invade Buenos Aires in support of regime change. This will also have the benefit of giving Her Mag lots of potential new vacation spots for the winter than her grim hidey hole in Balmoral.

    I think this ideas got legs myself…
