That Might Avert Disaster, Thwart UKIP, And Win The Election In 2015
Primary Elections Will End Central Office Power Over Candidates
“resume spending £11 billion on aid a year to impoverished third world countries when we don’t have to borrow to do it”
“We now know enough about Cameron the man, and many of us don’t like what we see”
The Tories can win the election in 2015 and thwart the challenge from UKIP, and here’s what they have to do.
Dump Cameron. End the coalition with the Lib-Dem hand-wringers. Introduce some policies that will take the wind out of UKIP’s sails.
The Queen’s Speech next week would be a suitable place to, say, extend grammar schools, and revoke the Climate Change Act. The Climate Change Act threatens us with power cuts in the short term, and hugely expensive energy bills which will impoverish us, and bankrupt many of our great manufacturing companies which depend on a plentiful supply of cheap power. The government should also announce it won’t shut down various coal-powered generators, despite what the E.U. says, until suitable, alternative power has been installed, probably nuclear. Next on the list; simply say immigration rights for Bulgarians and Romanian’s which start on January 1, 2014 will not be recognised. This will unleash a storm of aggravation from the E.U., which should signal an announcement that there will be an in/out referendum late in 2014.
That will convince enough of the core Tory vote that the party has taken on board the message from UKIP’s success in the local elections this week. Spiking homosexual marriage would also be a big help. Saying that we will resume spending £11 billion on aid a year to impoverished third world countries when we don’t have to borrow to do it, would make sense.
It is clear to me that if the Tories are to demonstrate that they have learned the lesson of UKIPs success, Prime Minister David Cameron has to go. He is the author of the Tory’s drift to the soft-left position it seems to take up automatically. He is perceived as someone who will do anything to retain the limo. Nothing he can say will convince those that voted UKIP last Thursday (and that includes me) that he has seen the light and will change. Cameron’s performance in the last general election, when he limp-wristedly failed to win a working majority facing the worst Prime Minister in living memory, shows he is not the man for the job. The risible claim that he was arranging a coalition with the Lib Dem halfwits, beards and sandals was in the national interest doesn’t bear a moment’s thought. This was an arrangement designed to save Cameron and avoid an inquest into why he failed so miserably. He should have governed as a minority, and dared the Lib Dems to vote him down. Even if Cameron now decides to end the coalition, I would still say that we’ve had it with him. We now know enough about Cameron the man, and many of us don’t like what we see.
Step forward, Michael Gove
Cameron’s replacement, hopefully Michael Gove, should simply ignore anything the Lib Dems say in government, knowing that the party will resist an election right to the end. Even these holier than thou dopes know an election means death to them. There’s still two years left until the election has to take place, plenty of time for a party that believes in small government, low taxation, minimal regulation, free speech and controlled immigration to make its mark. If this action does spark a premature election, at least the UKIP deserters will have been won back and give the Tories a chance for an outright majority.
As for the longer-term, if the Tory core vote is to be retained we need a system of selecting candidates which takes away the power from Central Office to appoint their own corrupt yes-men/women. This means the introduction of primary elections for local party members to make sure their candidates reflect what they believe in, and end this infection from old Etonians and public school career politicians.
