Vote-Loser Cameron Suffers Exodus From Tory Party

David Cameron has taken a battering on the blogs today with both ConservativeHome and LabourList revealing damaging new statistics about the PM’s waning popularity. Polling undertaken by Lord Ashcroft has found that a staggering 43% of  ConservativeHome readers see Cameron as a vote-loser, with a paltry 36% backing his electoral prowess. ConservativeHome gunning for Dave is ominous in the long-term. He has been warned…

LabourList is pushing a Commons report that shows membership of the Conservative Party has dropped by almost a third since Cameron became leader. The slump is pretty damning even considering that membership is usually cyclical, rising before a new leader is chosen and falling afterwards – hence why Labour’s membership numbers seem relatively flattering. Holding a leadership election to boost the coffers seems a tad extreme…

    Good morning all.

    I am one of the thousands who have left the Conservative Party.

    I left because of David Cameron. He is a Europhile & a Liberal Democrat.

    He is son of Heath & I utterly reject him as Tory leader.

    I have now joined UKIP.

    I will vote UKIP at every opportunity – even if it gives Labour victory.

    Conservatives should ask themsekves this:

    If Cameron could not win against Brown, what on earth makes you think he can win a majority in 2015?

    Vote UKIP until the Tory MPs put down their expense claim forms & do something.

    To be fair, it’s partly because he’s hamstrung by this wretched coalition arrangement – another reason to call the LDs bluff on this Lords Reform threat this morning and let them walk out. Enough’s enough – tell ‘em to eff off and call a GE.

    But the problem is broader than that: all 3 parties are losing members. Why? Quite simply because they’re all shite.

    I was very patient with Cameron for quite a while but he has failed to promote real Tory policies. His main priority was to cut public spending and he hasn’t even managed that. OK so he is hampered by the dog Clegg, yapping at his heels and straining his lead but that doesn’t excuse his poor performance.

    How he could seemingly have got on the wrong side of the Murdoch debate and banking scandals could only happen to a born loser. The Tories would be heading for a landslide victory at the next election if they had a good, honest speaking PM who was not looking at the latest poll figures all the time. Thatcher didn’t get three election victories by pussyfooting around.

    Toner Cartridge says:

    It is such a pity, because when it first started governing, the coalition was actually supported by a mojority of the British people. Cameron could have done so many useful things, like reforming local government (he failed by leaving Eric Pickles in place), making serious in roads into the national debt (in fact he’s increased it), pulling troops out of Afghanistan (the war drifts on expensively achieving zero), holding a referendum on the EU, reforming education (only half done by Michae Gove, who, to be fair, has impressed me over the Building for Schools issue), cutting the costs in the NHS, and made serious cuts to the welfare budget and the subsidy to millionaire landords which housing benefits have turned into. Others will no doubt have their own projects and can legitamately disagree, but the point is, this government is simply drifting along and has squandered its mandate. Add to that the tinkering over VAT on pasties and other irrelevant battles and we really must question Cameron’s fitness as a leader.

    Stephen Birch says ground radar scans he made with specialist equipment have been passed to Scotland Yard, who are conducting an investigative review of the case.

    He told Sky News: “All I want to do is solve the mystery and bring closure to Ma*eleine’s family. I am convinced she lies where I have scanned.

    The Sea of Excrement may be Labour’s but Cameron’s boat is lubricated by the piss flowing from the Lib Dems.

    I was pleased to see the end of the Labour government but I’m mightily disappointed with Cameron. He is not he Conservative PM that many of us voted for and hoped for.

    The only good thing to come out of the Coalition disaster is the fact that the Lib Dems have been exposed for what they are.

    On the national stage a party cannot be one thing to one group and another thing to another group which appears to have been Lib Dem policy when they were primarily a local government party.

    There are far too many people around Cameron who seriously think that Twitter is representative of the opinions of the general public. You might as well base policy around which Big Brother contestant its voters respond best to.

    However, a vote for UKIP is emphatically NOT a wasted vote. It is a kick in the nads for Dave. Every single UKIP vote is a clear message to the Cons that they will lose elections if they have left-wing Europhile out-of-touch leaders who couldn’t are less about the Cons’ core vote.

    Engineer you are right there. The surge in support when he stood up to the Euros should have told him which side his bread is buttered. Other ways Cameron could improve his standing would be to:

    Stop immigration
    Fight back against Islamic extremism
    Cut unnecessary state spending
    Reduce taxes
    Tackle voter fraud in certain areas
    Deal with the entitlement culture
    Sort out the leftist entryism into education, social services, BBC etc etc.
    Call a referendum (in / out) on the EU
    Back our manufacturing industries (you can’t have an economy built around sandwich bars.)
    Beef up the criminal justice system
    Repeal the Human Rights Act
    Drop the divisive Gay Marriage proposal (there is already de facto equality with the introduction of civil partnerships)

    Basically act like a responsible reasonable Conservative instead of a simulacrum of the Lib Dems. Until then every time I look at a picture of Cameron I will see it morphing into a picture of Heath.

    SteveS says:

    His only chance now is a collapse of the Euro which will enable him to start acting to call an election on the important question of restoring national soverienty immediately due to the collapse of the EU and its institutions. This is becoming a possibility now – Spain back over 7%, Italy back of 6%, the Finns saying they will never share liability for other countries debt and that leaving the Euro is very much an option (stick that in you irrevesible pipe and smoke it Barroso and Company), and the German establishment and public sentiment turning against the save the Euro at all costs approach.

    This thing is going to collapse soon and when it does it will collapse quickly taking the whole EU with it. Dave can win if he gets the opportunity to pull out of the coalition to ask an important question of the people – in or out?? If Clegg and Milliband try and prevent it, they will be electoral toast when 2015 does come around.

    Its all going to plan for Labour. Brown had an inkling that a fourth term was unlikely so he embarked upon his scorched earth policy.

    He knew it would take a determined radical to clean up the devastation he left behind and that Cameron was not that man.

    Brown was an utter disgrace and embarrassment as PM. The British people came way down the list of his priorities.

    Everything he said or did was geared toward political advantage for his party and disadvatage for the Tories.

    Aided by Balls and co they have left a minefield calculated to make a following government unpopular and unelectable.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    I may think that the tories have got their methods wrong even if their hearts are in the right place (this country does need to reinvigourate), but with the excepton of Camerons “decent hard working people” marginaising the unemployed/disabled crap [people who have lost their jobs through his policies, who cant find work etc, have not lost their decency] at least he is, in this parliament at least, centralish as he tries to maintain balance in his party and in the coalition. Imagine if you had a right wing bring back Auchwitz types in leadership.

    Our aristocracy had nazi sympathisers in the 1930s so I can only hope that they dont get the full reigns of power today for that would be a tragedy.

    Remember darkness only takes a hold because good men do nothing (paraphrasing someone famous I forget who), and as I know myself from my own bitter experience, when you are in darkness it can be very difficult to see it or believe it. Now where is that lightswitch!!

    Sadly once the seeds of darkness have been sown they can germinate. The negative side of this governments policies even if they stopped today would take years to remedy. After threee more years Cameron will have succeeded in changing attitudes, but not wholy for the better the way he seems to expect.

    It amazes me how he thinks that during a time of economic turmoil he expects such a level of change to actually work in a mature nation. Had an economic recovery come which offered plenty of well paid jobs he may have stood a fair chance. He would have been far better advised to perform precision surgery rather than wholesale change. All sorts of good reasons why this government of ours has made a monumential social cock up.

    In my 2000-2009 decade of encouraging the masonic world to reilluminate itself, even I, for all of my desire to see reillumination, suggested several things to evolve the masonic world (several of which coincidentally have subsequently been implemented in ugle practices and policies) but even I would never create a situation where so much change happens so quickly. It just doesn’t work, unless you are very very lucky. People need to evolve, our country is evolutionary not revolutionary.

    No! There are a lot of Conservative (and other) MP’s who believe in personal responsibility, reward for work and not blaggin’ off your fellow man or woman.

    Not bad ethics really unless you are Clegg or Cameron, in which case you are a target.

    My own spin is that Clegg, Cameron & Osbourne will lead us into the first call of the IMF on a Conservative watch.

    The reason?

    The bond credit bubble – an irresistable opportunity for savvy traders at the right moment created by the mad policy of quantitative easing, an untried strategy on the Mega scale to pull the wool over the market’s eyes. I bet they fail.

    Our kids & pensioners zero, rest of world bickering over the pickings.
