      How about that referendum on getting out of the EU Bill and stop giving it £50 million a day!! Stop the £11 billion foreign aid to nucleur powers and corrupt regimes. How about stopping the 591,000 immigrants a year and removing those who shouldn’t be here? What about stopping the windmill building to bung your father law £1000’s a week so we don’t have to pay 20% premium on our electricity bills? What about leaving the EU HR Court so we can deport foreign criminals and repealing the Human Rights Act?
      UKIP I think as you are NOT listening.

        David Cameron says:

        I am afraid such extremist views have no part in my new progressive conservative government.

        You are clearly a closet racist little englander and as such, I feel I can ignore your rantings and concentrate on the important matters of state.
        Such as, gay marriage, lots of very inexpensive and reliable windfarms, fighting the killer gas CO2, vital House of Lords reforms and of course expanding the EU so as to create even larger bills for taxpayers to subsidise.

        It is important that ordinary families are not left with any disposable income, so to that end, we shall increase taxation on anything that moves and those who resist will face tribunal trials where they will have no access to the evidence against them, or the ability to refute the charges abainst them either.

        Thankyou for your tireless work to make the UK a more bankrupt police state and I look forward to the coming parliament, confident that I have your full support.

        David.

          As Cameron doesn’t listen to anyone but his Notting Hill airy-fairy cronies, why should anyone else listen to him?

          I stopped listening to the bollocks Cameron spouts ages ago.

          Cameron is just another duplicitous, lying politician who takes the electorate for fools.

          – will seek theapproval of Parliament on an amendment to the European Union Treaties confirmingthe ability of euro area Member States to establish a financial stability mechanismwithin the euro area.

          Did he not guarantee a referendum on changing EU treaties in the last Queens speech – or was it just cast iron ones for which we get a look in ?

      I’m completely reassured.

      But then again I have a majority of 22,786 and no boundary change.
      And being out of government means that instead of having to do what the whips tell you, you don’t have to do anything at all.

        Yes Yes Yes:

        Crime and Courts Bill
        – will establish the National Crime Agency to tackle serious,organised and complex crime and strengthen border security. The Bill will alsomaintain the capability of intelligence and law enforcement agencies to acquirecommunications data to protect the public within a framework of strict safeguards.Measures will further reform and modernise the courts and tribunal service to increaseefficiency, transparency and judicial diversity

        Finally he did what the great Blair couldn’t – a new shiny national police force to do the state’s work and cut out the pesky annoying local police forces. We can have nationwide crackdowns on racism, patriotism, anti-EU propaganda, homophobia and climate change denial.

        Modernising the courts is important. Nice move Dave. I want no more tradition or reminders that this is an old country. As Clegg said we are a young country. Obviously not true but we all agreed to stick to the new official history which started in 1997 with New Labour freeing us from the hated Tories and creating the NHS.

        And best of all – judicial diversity. It is outrageous that Englishmen can still be judges when we are a modern, diverse, multi-cultural nation.

    will reform the electricity market.

The Bill will also establish an independent nuclear regulator.
