Rebel Tory Party Conference

Invites have gone out today for a conspiratorial alternative Conservative Party conference to rival the real thing next month.

The one-day Windsor event calls for a renewal of Conservatism and boasts an all-star cast of sound speakers including James Delingpole, Matthew Elliott, Dan Hannan, Tim Montgomerie and Toby Young.

As for the rumours that top Tory donors are becoming more and more disgruntled with Dave?

The keynote speaker is one Lord Ashcroft…

    I prefer democracy says:

    Donors are deserting because Mvrd0ch and other media outlets declared war, quite openly a few months ago, on large Tory donors.
    If they donate they get named and shamed by the papers. These people are not publicity seekers, least of all do they want the scumbag press making all sorts of inuendo about them and their affairs. Pound to a penny that Tom Baldwin (ex-Mvrd0ch) is pulling the strings for team Milliband on this. No doubt promising the dirty digger that the Tony Blair (Mvrd0ch was and still is head over hells with him) years of limitless cosyness with the press and government will return. Afterall the BBC won’t say a word about it, when Labour are benefiting.
    Cameron is being attacked because he sided with the Liberals and they openly despise Mvrd0ch and the influence of media barons. DC cannot or will not be Mvrdo0chs poodle and he wants revenge. Montgomery and the rest are just cynically going along with it to advance their own floating vote losing agenda. Labour will be laughing their socks off.

    If the Tory Party want to get rid of their leader, it should purely be an internal party decision, not because an outside, and not even British, influence is holding a gun to their head.

    I do love all this lets move to the right when even many of those Economists who suported Osborne just 2 years ago now say that he has to change with a move to the left. The lessons of history have not been learnt and we are suffering as a result. God only knows why people want a move to the right when the professionals are saying go left.

    Also from reading recent back issues of my professional accountancy/economics magazine, I sense that even the high hied yins of us bean counters are worried for not dissimilar reasons.

    So the professionals say austerity isnt working, yet many in the Tory party and the UKIP want more of the same. More of what doesnt work.

    Quite funny really.

    So please vote in a more extremist right wing Tory leader, for that should put an end to a Tory government in this country for several elections to come!

    I think that where our government have erred is that they looked at the money levers but failed to take proper account of the social levers.

    I actually feel sorry for Dave as I do think his heart is in the right place and that he means well. But thinking that he could jolt this nation of ours (and lets face it it is a pretty conservative with a small c nation) into a new positive way of thinking within a 5 years time frame was ambitious at best.

    I can only wonder, if for example, he gave proper consideration to how his policies would result in injecting fear and terror into society (as someone here confirmed with his wife yesterday), and the crime, suicides and ill health that would flow from that, not to mention riots [thank you God for a soggy summer as I was dreading a long hot one]?

    You cannot focus soley on keeping the bankers/markets/funders happy while letting everyone else suffer. Its bonkers form a societal cohesion perspective, even if good from a political ideology perspective.

    You cant ignore lessons from history, changing times or this nations social cohesion, for one thing that this nation has been very good at is stability. So changing everything at once to please the money folk is simply bonkers.

    Well for most of that you need patriotic parties, so that leaves out Labour, LibDems and the Tories.

    Instead we’re lumbered with three parties driven by vested interests, greed and toxic ideologies of globalism and post-democracy.

    Engineer says:

    The current crisis is caused by too much debt. Too much personal debt, too much corporate debt and far too much sovereign debt (or public debt as it’s usually called).

    How the hell is incurring more debt going to solve the problem?

    The mantra ‘we need growth’ is somewhat undermined when you consider that since 2008 (and arguably some time before that) the growth figures were supported by unsustainable borrowing. Until that borrowing is paid back, and the current level of borrowing curbed, the level of economic activity will ‘fall’ to a sustainable level.

    The current ‘lack of growth’ is merely the correction to a decade-long binge on unsustainably cheap borrowing. The sooner it can work itself out of the system, the better; more borrowing now will just postpone the economic hangover.

    Problem is old cock we didn’t cut expenditure and gave the workshy and pensioners a pay rise when real workers had pay cuts. We haven’t given any meaningful tax cuts to those who can use the money to boost production, and of course there’s the dreadful situ in the eu which we abandoned scepticism of when we confused the publics antipathy to us as a result of the eu, rather than membership of the erm which caused most aspirational southerners to be repossessed. That’s why we favour monetary intervention. Thing is we’re fuckwits and haven’t a clue about the lessons of history.

    Dont get me wrong Lucius, I dont disagree with our governments philosophy, I just think that they have done too much too quickly, and that this has caused harm.

    I actually want the tories to succeed in rejuvinating this nation, but they have gone around it the wrong way. In my opinion, which is rapidly becoming the opinion of others, who are a little more delicate in how they criticise like the IMF and Economists who once backed Osborne.

    It just saddens me that a nation of light like ours falls into darkness for no good reason. It would have been better if the Lib Dems had proven themsleves to be a cut above the Tories but that is a separate issue.

    People who like to talk about ‘helping each other’ are more usually into ‘helping themselves’ once their bleeding hearts have wangled their way into a public sector sinecure.

    They talk about ‘shared sacrifice’ but strangely it is others who do the sacrificing bit, while they are more in to the sharing part.

    Welfare is fine for those who are genuinely disadvantaged, or for those temporarily out of work. It is not a hammock to lay in while the dwindling producer class get exploited.

    The lesson of history is that once 300-odd economists have put their stamp on a letter to a Conservative leadership urging a change in direction, it is better to keep going and be proved right, and let the ‘professionals’ go choke.

    I’m not sure all this donor business is beside the point. If the Tories simply promoted real conservative policies, people would vote for them. They can have a trillion quid a week pouring in, but if they show themselves as wavering, wet Liberals, they will surely be buried at the next election.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
