Who You Calling Swivel-Eyed?

In a Telegraph interview the drippingly wet Greg Barker when asked about the need for a change of direction following a poll giving UKIP 11% support and surveys showing 10% of Tory voters from 2010 have switched to UKIP retorted:

“We don’t need to follow UKIP into swivel-eyed rhetoric.”

As ConservativeHome notes, that is hardly the way to win back lost supporters. What struck Guido most was that Greg Barker, a screaming climate change racket fanatic, is really on dodgy ground with that line. Look into his eyes…

UPDATE: Within a minute of publishing Greg Barker sportingly tweets:

    I was certainly offended by that line. In my late fifties I have voted Tory all my voting life, sometimes with a heavy heart. But this year I have been tipped over the edge and became a member of UKIP – the first party I have ever joined. How dare they imply that I am swivel eyed.

    And if I am what does that say about the 40 years or so that I have been voting Tory. This bunch had better learn some respect for their former voters if they’re going to stand a chance of getting any of them back. An apology please

    Another limp-wristed Cameron yes-man- devoid of any actual inderstanding of the lay of the land.
    UKIP with it’s anti europe@n rhetoric will always seem attractive to many a Tory with fond memories of Thatcher and present day interference from Brussels.
    Tim Montgomery writes a good line and Guido’s other link to another TM piece- “Who will lead” just about says it all. Unfortunately, with Dave, George et al floundering while attempting to front a largely Socialist path to recovery, someone with balls [unlike dodgy Barker] is required , and perhaps another Tory woman at the helm would finally get the UK back on track.

    “10% of Tory voters from 2010 have switched to UKIP…..”

    If you beleive that poll, you’ll believe anything. The polls are bullshiting again on behalf of their media paymasters.
    Pretty much what they were saying before last year’s local elections in fact. Until the actual elections dissproved them. Yes we know UKIP do well in Euro elections when the humorous protest vote comes ot for them, but no evidence that this has ever transferred to a GE.

    I’m sick of deperate people quoting faked opinion polls as if to legitimise there own point of view. Be it right-wingers and closet lefties who want to start civil war in the Tory Party or Labour stooges claiming that everyone wants Labour back in power tomorrow. But then again, that is why opinion polls exist, to create and push the desired media narrative. They have bugger-all to do with reality.

    Taxfodder says:

    Pressing buttons and pulling levers just to see what they do is surely the preserve of silly unsupervised schoolboys not government ministers..for instance why is Cameron prating about in Burma when he has his hands full in the UK does he consider all is so tickety-boo here that his proven trouble shooting talents are now so urgently needed in Burma, unless of course he hopes to flog them a few ancient scorched and bloodstained Warrior Tanks to put down the next demonstration out there.

    Funny how when the kitchen becomes a bit too hot at home, in the mould of Blair and Brown our great Tory leader runs away to something far more important elsewhere.

    The connection I am making is that given another fifty years of this coalition government nothing would have changed for the better, they would still be learning on the job and my hard working countrymen and women would still be picking up the pieces…along with the peoples of Burma it seems.

    UKIP stand no chance so long as the MSM like the BBC lump them in with the BNP. I don’t know how the BBC get away with it. Caroline Lucas is never off the fucking BBC. The mongs argue that because they’ve got a seat in Parliament she’s entitled to all the time she wants.

    Well she was never off the fucking BBC BEFORE she won her seat and let’s see if Galloway is on the BBC as often as Lucas is.

    UKIP will never get traction whilst they allow the BBC to link them to the BNP all the time.

    Regarding climate change I bet this Tory mong can’t explain ANY of the science because 99% of it is bollocks and based on assumptions and computer models.

    Go back to the 199’s and they were telling us that by now the North pole would be free of ice in the summer. Well it isn’t. Now they tell us it will be in a few more years. It won’t then either.

    All that climate change means to fucking politicians is higher taxes for them to waste on shit projects.

    The libdem dominated social democrat government nominally led by Cameron are sure they dont need the vote of their core vote or the right wing of their party.

    They know this because Camerons hero Bliar took time out from counting his vast pile of money to affirm that there is a huge middle ground just longing to vote for a centrist social democrat party. Truly the heir to Blair is Cameron.

    Yes, there are quangoids and beeboids and state sector executives and euroslime flunkies enough out there in La la land to more than replace the right wing core vote. In La La land wishes come true and magic wands come as standard and their windmills generate all the electricity we need, along with gigantic subsidies for their rich friends and families of course.

    The dripping wet euroslime North London millionaires club have it all figured out, all they have to do is follow leftist/Marxist/ecofascist policies that appeal to about 10% of the population and this will transform like magic into a majority for them with the application of their magic wands.

    The strategic brainiacs who thought that real centrists and leftists would vote for the libdem dominated social democrat coalition if they moved their tent far enough left deserves a medal sent from UKIP gift wrapped and with a thank you note.

And that’s the problem: Dave is just an empty suit ready to believe in anything and nothing at the same time. Dave and his “sofa” cabinet are members of the Metropolitan liberal-minded elite who, being so wrapped up in their ideological bubble, are totally divorced from the realities of the struggles and hellish existence in the Multi-cultural and corrupt shite-hole Britain has become.

    Barker is a prime example of the attitudes of Cameron’s cronies. This is a bloke who spent years living a lie married to a woman before running off with another bloke. If I’m not mistaken, Barker was also responsible for making dodgy expenses claims with regard to the second home he shared with his male “lover”.

    I think Barker has just ensured more Tory defections to UKIP.

    In case you haven’t noticed it yet Phil, Cameron is not going round the country saying, “I hate these liberal policies, but there is a coalition agreement and we are bound by duty and lawful agreement to implement them. Vote for us next time and we will overturn them”

    In fact, Cameron is doing the opposite. Cameron evangelises for the liberal’s policies.

    On all the central policies, Cameron has adopted and embraced the values and policies of the conservative party’s supposed opponents.

    pro-surveillance state,
    pro-EU subservience,
    Pro immigration,
    pro high taxes,
    pro climate change taxation and control,
    pro big government,
    pro ECHR,
    pro terrorists and criminals rights,
    pro corrupt corporate lobbying,
    Pro-big banker,
    pro high debt,
    pro-politically correct divisiveness,
    pro-merging our defence with that of France,
    soft on crime and law and order,
    soft on welfare…

    Even on deficit reduction, there is now less than 1% difference between the tories and labour.

    The sad truth is many long-term, reasonable, rational, mainstream, middle of the road conservative voters are now waking up to the fact that they have spent the last decade or more fighting and campaigning and voting against “new labour” Blairite policies and values, only to discover the conservative Prime Minister, enthusiastically adopting and embracing ALL of them! What is more, labour voters and the lefty media are STILL not giving the tories any credit whatsoever for being more new labour than new labour were.

    So for all your desperate defence of the conservative party, you are in denial of reality.

    I would love to vote and campaign for the conservative party again, but they are not a conservative party and they do not offer conservative policies anymore.

    What party should I vote for if I want to vote for the following policies?

    How do I vote for low taxes?
    How do I vote for small government?
    How do I vote for a halt to EU domination?
    How do I vote for real representative democracy coming from Parliament?
    How do I vote for unashamedly pro-business policies?
    How do I vote for de-regulation of the labour market and a removal of masses of unnecessary, business strangling, expensive red-tape?
    How do I vote for a massive reduction in immigration?
    How do I vote to scrap the ECHR?
    How do I vote for tough law and order policies?
    How do I vote for realistic, empirical evidence based scientifically sound climate change and energy policies?
    How do I vote for a reduction in the ideologically driven, ridiculous and extreme ‘politically correct’ policies which create division and conflict?
    How do I vote for libertarian policies which value civil liberties for the law abiding?
    How do I vote against intrusive, state interference and totalitarian surveillance policies?

    I cannot vote for these policies by voting conservative. The conservative party and labour parties have the same policies in almost all of these areas.

    The only Party that actually offers me the policies that I would like to see implemented in all these areas is UKIP. All the main parliamentary parties are offering, or implementing the wrong policies in all of the above areas.

    Why are we cutting our CO2 at all? To reduce global temperatures?

    By how much will global temperature be reduced by?

    Well, If the UK stopped ALL CO2 emissions, global temperatures will not be effected AT ALL! So we are crippling our industry, costing tax-payers hundreds of billions for NO benefit whatsoever on a policy that is absolutely guaranteed to fail.

    It’s not just Islam though is it? The number of children taken into care exceeded 10,000 last year. How many of those are taken to order by sickos in social services, and given over to perverted sex rings for exploitation? Such depravity is covered up by the massive state enforced secrecy of the family courts. Such sex-rings are made up of members of the judiciary, the police, paediatric doctors, social workers and others who are supposed to be protecting children.

    I have heard from many people who have been abused by the state in this way as kids. Their stories cannot be told in detail, because of the secrecy of the family court system and the vast majority of the mainstream media will not touch this story with a barge-pole.

    Dear C-o-b,
    ‘Abortion is legal': I think you will find that there are certain limitations that Parliament set, which should qualify your statement. Now, it might be the fact that, to all intents and purposes, Doctors virtually routinely turn blind eyes to the Law (Fees, speaking more loudly), and it has become ‘Abortion-on-demand’, ‘Abortion-as a-form-of-birth-control’, but the Law did not, and does not, simply say, ‘Abortion is legal’. Besides, there are some things which, while ‘legal’, a person – or a Political Party – might concur are not things with which they agree, punitive interest on small loans, for instance, so they set up a party agreeing on those and other principles. What are the principles of the Conservatives? What are ‘call me Dave’s’ principles?

    Errrr….. FACT 1
    A much larger late transfer of soft Tory support went to Nick Clegg as a result of TV debates. Tories were prevented from taking back Liberal held seats and allowed Labour to hold on to marginals because of votes lost to the Liberals. Conservative votes lost to the Liberals far outwieghed the “miserable old git” vote that UKIP get, many of whom never vote Tory anyway and if they ever did, it was proabably in 1983 and more than few have voted Labour before.

    If the Tories start barking out UKIP rhetoric, the BBC will murder them with the gullible floating vote. That will do them much more damage than gaining few old farts back from UKIP.

    And I can’t believe the insensitivity and sheer ignorance of some of the extreme leftwingers in their arguments against the necessity for abortion in some cases.

    Most of them seem to be men so presumably if they were told by the Dr’s about their wife that either she had an abortion early or she would die and possibly the child with her, they’d let her die.

    Comforting to know one had a husband like that! Wonder if he’d make the same decision if it was his life on the line?!!

    Christ on a bike, you are delusional aren’t you? Have you even been in a conservative club recently?

    I know of only five tories who voted had conservative religiously from the mid 1970s to 2010, who switched to UKIP last time. Just five of them. I do not know any Tories at all that were taken in by the “I agree with Nick” bollocks and switched to Lib Dem. Additionally the liberal democrat share of the vote did not really increase much on the day and they LOST MPs. There was no massive drift of tories to Lib Dems. Lots of labour voters switched switched though.

    Just on a personal note, last week I asked around everyone I know here who is a tory and only 10 of them out of about 50 are still happy and willing to vote tory. About 15 will either vote tory or abstain and 15 are already committed to UKIP. The remainder will wait and see. Obviously this is not a national poll and is entirely unscientific, but there is a very definite and strong backlash against the betrayal and overt Blairism of Cameron’s government. The last straw was Cameron backing down on his EU veto. After this the budget debacle has only reinforced our view that Cameron’s tories are not conservative at all and that they hold the entire conservative party with utter contempt.

    But by all means carry on believing that UKIP have NO support. Anything to support the corrupt, failed, status quo. All three parties are identical on MOST of their policy platform. Labour, tory and liberals are identical. Rubber stamping EU directives and promoting the identical “third way” corporatism.

    You can remain living in 2001 if you like and keep pretending. But there are a hell of a lot of betrayed conservatives are getting seriously pissed off with their own party supporting the very same Blairism that they fought passionately against for over a decade.

    Nell, if a woman is responsible for her body, why isn’t she also responsible for preventing the unwanted pregnancy in the first place? There’s plenty of contraceptive protection available for women as well as men. Don’t just blame men for solely being responsible for females getting pregnant.

    I don’t have any strong views on abortion – I just feel uneasy that it’s now being used as a form of contraception by some women who are either too dozy or too sexually promiscuous to bother taking precautions.

    Cameron and his ilk seriously believe they can gain more votes from the liberals, centre-left and homosexual classes, than they can win back from UKIP and tory abstainers. They call it ‘modernisation of the party’.

    Cynical-old-bag says:

    I wasn’t blaming men for solely being responsible for getting women pregnant.

    I was merely pointing out that many men are quite happy to leave their responsibilities behind when they find out that there is a baby on the way. They do not want any ties, they want nothing to do with the child and they do not want to contribute to the child’s upbringing, therefore, leaving everything to the woman for the next 18 years. If men were to have a say as to whether the woman has an abortion or not, knowing full well that they will do all of the above, how many children will end up in care homes?

    Bringing up children as a single parent is not easy. I well realize that there is state help, but it is minimal. I am not talking about a using abortion as a contraception when people are careless, but genuine mistakes. These do happen, and when they do, every effort should be made to help the mother make an informed and rational decision about what will, effectively, affect the rest of her life – not his!

    The Lesson unto Noo (Totally Confused) Progressive Cons is taken from the Book of Dave, Chapter 94 says:

    1. And in those days Dave called unto him his jobsworths and his jobsworths’ jobsworths: and when they had assembled before him, even unto Dave, he lifteth up his hands, yeah, even like unto a sapling battling a great storm.

    2. And all that saw that became hushed, like unto a damsel that swooneth before the touch of her Lord.

    3. And Dave openeth his mouth, and, lifting up his voice, sayeth unto them: I, even I that thou callest ‘Dave’, hath an initiative, which is both fair and progressive.

    4. And the jobsworths and their jobsworths’ jobsworths sayeth, one unto another: What manner of speech is this in that he sayeth he hath an initiative, which is both fair and progressive? And what meaneth he?

    5. And Dave, seeing that all marvelled at his words, and the manner of his speaking, openeth his mouth a second time, and lifting up his voice, preached unto them and commanded unto them that all the world should be taxed.

    6. But the jobsworths and their jobsworths’ jobsworths were perplexed, and with one voice, they lifted up their voice, and said: But how shall this be, seeing we must do unto the wealthy what they do not want, and thou, even thou Dave, art a man of means.

    7. And Dave, answering said, Fear not, there will be set upon tablets and upon scrolls, laws that allow for that which is called the hole of a loop. For to him that hath shall be given, yeah even more than he hath. But the hungry shall be sent empty away.

    8. And I, even I, Dippy Dave, shall make a turn, such that I face unto the way from whence I came: and the things that I say I will not do, yet those do I. And the things I say I will do, yet those do I not. And all marvelled at his words, but believeth them not.

    Re the abortion debate. It’s all “God’s” fault in instigating this slanted Russian roulette. He stacked the deck against any man = womb-man relationship.

The UK now falls dramatically behind most Europe@n countries in the responsibility shown by both sexes, re drink, sex and food.
    Perhaps the failing could indirectly be laid at the door of past and present politicians / church, where lack of a balanced all round education has played it’s part. Financial handouts available because you can reproduce or the ability to terminate at the expense of the state makes no sense. The same for obesity and alcohol related failings You would seem to be totally f*cked on all fronts.
    Perhaps I can understand Dave’s suggestion at promoting male/male and female /female relationships to avoid the necessity of the question of abortion arising. Am I to assume his next foray into solving this financial drain on the economy will include legalising bestiality?

    No point voting Tory or Labour when when you get Labour either way. UKIP is different from the other two, Lie Dumbs are way out of the ball park.

    Boy Blunder said the deficit would be reduced by 80% spending cuts and 20% tax rises. Not even 10 % cuts have been made. However tax rises continue, low interest rates for savers, £74 billion on QE to wreck pensions and the value of money. Tax on everything they can hoping people will not notice.

    Taxpayers’ pay for the pay rise of the EU from £45-50 million each day. Overseas aid £35 million a day. Greek bail our, Irish “loan” cost us billions. Middle East wars which are none of our business costs further billions. Welfare lifers get a 5.2% pay rise this month. Millions more people now enter the 40% (+11%NI) tax bracket so the Government gets more of their wage than they do to throw away. 20% of our energy bills pay for the green agenda wind farms, not the energy companies but the government. And the wind farms are less efficient, unreliable and do not work in good or bad weather!!

    Add to the mix that the EU has killed our fishing industry, strangling our farming industry and wrecking the of all industry by stupid bureaucratic crap. Yet Parliament rubber stamps all EU legislation, HRA prevents sensible justice and Flashman goes belly up every time to any EU demand.

    Vote Tory- not in this life time.

    A pragmatist says:

    One minute we have the Tory sheep saying that UKIP are irrelevant because they have not enough support and the next they say that supporting them they will put Ken Livingstone (or some other bogey man) in.

    What does it take to get these sheep to vote on the policies and principles rather than to vote for the least of a bad bunch? How is that EVER going to help the country?

    The current Tory party is by far the most left wing in its history. Bleating at the party with the policies you may agree with is just not an option to some of us. Some of us have a backbone.

    Floating voters are turning off ALL parties.

    The tories pissed away millions of votes by rejecting common sense conservative policies and embracing Blairism at the time when even Labour reject Blair.

    The tories were consistently 20+ points ahead in the polls in 2009 when Cameron was pretending to be a Eurosceptic tory. Once he backed away from that and showed his europhile true colours, the tory support slumped to single figures. Many of those who gave the tories that 20% lead ended up not voting. Some of them voted UKIP. UKIP had about 3% support then, and now in polls with equal prompting, they get 11%.

    The tories have lost more votes from traditional common sense, middle of the road tories by becoming a Blairite party than they have gained from “progressives” who are far more inclined to vote labour anyway.

    The tories cannot win a general election from their current left of centre Blairite position.

    Get used to opposition.

    I welcome the results of that trade mission, any extra, additional and new inward investment has to be welcome. That will create jobs for people that are not having to be paid for from taxation or government borrowing.

    That said, a rational look at the scale of that mission should keep things in perspective. I read a figure of 750 million pounds worth of new trade gained. Compare that to the additional 10 Billion that Osborne has just agreed to give in extra funding to the IMF.

  492. 492
    misterned says:

    Cameron said the Burmese part of this trip was not part of the trade mission, it was diplomatic and political. He was in Burma to support Aung San Suu Kyi and to support the push for democracy in Burma.

    It is a shame that he did not show the same support for Democracy in Greece or Italy or in the EU for that matter.

    Perhaps Cameron is aware that the Australian carbon tax will make their carbon based energy products prohibitively expensive?

    Oh sorry, what am I thinking…. Cameron being aware of the damage caused by green policies? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

    misterned says:

    If all the tories went out and voted UKIP in these council elections… 2 things would happen.

    1. There would be a lot of excellent new councillors who exhibit common sense, decency and support common sense policies,

    2. Cameron will only change his rhetoric to sound more conservative. His actions would remain the same.

    The tories will not win the next election with Cameron in charge. Cameron cannot convince enough of the metrosexual liberals to change from labour to blue labour, or enough of the aspirational working classes to change from labour to blue labour, but he has put off enough traditional conservatives, in enough marginals to cost him the election.

    These traditional conservatives may well not vote at all, or they might change to UKIP. Either way, they are no use to Cameron and will delight in seeing him in opposition, and be relieved that if the nation must be destroyed, that it will be a labour and not a conservative government that gets the blame in the end.

    The only way to save this country from finally being broken up into EU regions run from Brussels is to vote UKIP, because Cameron has made it clear that he wants to remain in the EU.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
