WATCH: Broken Tory Promises

An absolutely damning assessment of Dave and George’s broken promises from the Taxpayers’ Alliance this morning. “No plans to increase VAT”, VAT increased to 20%. “The next Conservative government will increase the inheritance tax threshold to £1 million”, inheritance tax limit frozen. What ever happened to the Conservatives?

    Operation Crossbow says:

    They are useless scum.


  2. 2
    Living in 96.99% white Merseyside says:

    They lost in 1997! Doubt if they’ll ever have a majority in my lifetime.
    I’ll go to my grave happy!

      The Third Way doesn't work either says:

      It’s gone 10:00, you know.

      Ted says:

      If your going to your grave don’t forget to pay your inheritance tax first. George Osbrown needs your cash.

        Living in 96.99% white Merseyside says:

        I won’t leave anything. I’m slowly spending all my money on Amazon. No VAT and they pay little tax.

      Who'd have thought says:

      But look what we have in the wings thinking they will take over to finish off the country, the two Ed’s, it was bad with Bliar and his lunatic Broon, if the country votes that lot of corruption in, then we deserve what they have in store for us, high taxes and calling it “investing” that I think was brilliant.

    An urgent public announcement says:

    The Conservative Party has gone missing. If you have a clue to its current whereabouts could you please contact Mr G Forks at order-order.com as soon as possible. Mr Forks is pining badly.

    Steve Miliband says:

    Cut taxes=more spending money=growth=more indirect tax=everyone happy


  5. 9
    Mike Hunt says:

    B£iar: We have no plans to introduce tuition fees.


  6. 10
    Owin Jones says:

    Was same sex marriage in the manifesto ?


  7. 12
    the PBT says:

    are they learning realpolitik?

    if you get elected by factions whose main interest is their own (unjustified and unaffordable) subsidies – what else is to be expected?

    OR – how would the TPA like to pay for it?

    80p per litre red diesel?

    Sandra in Accounts says:

    UKIP will scrap inheritance tax.

    Only the Con / Lab / Lib Socialist party believe in death taxes and grave robbing.

    Vote UKIP

      Stewie says:


      This is no Conservative Party. It has been hijacked and date-raped by socialist demoncrats.

      Yes Yes Yes To Plain Packs says:

      I strive to keep all my wealth when I’m dead. What better time to enjoy the fruits of a lifetime of striving.

      I’m building a tax-exempt sarcophagus in the Turks and Carcass Islands for that very purpose.


  9. 14
    Raving Loon says:

    Things like this are the reason UKIP are taking votes from the Tories, much more than the issue of the EU.

      Con Artists says:

      I can’t wait for the 5 million new legal immigrants to arrive so you can’t get an appointment at the doctors, your local schools are full, hospitals are overrun and failing, tax’s for the plebs go up to pay for it all, the old are killed to make way for our new friends, fuel costs rise to pay for windmills that don’t work and wages fall as the race to the bottom takes hold.

      What a beautiful country Conservative voters are leaving for their children, I’m sure they will be thanked when their kids can only earn minimum wage and pay basic rate tax of 60% to fund our amazing world class welfare state.

    Peter you-can't-flush-me Mandelson says:

    ‘Whatever happened to the Conservatives ?’
    Blair’s chum Cameron and Osborne happened, of course.


    Everything going according to plan.
    (Retires to ‘bed’ for the day.)

    Popeye says:

    All the good ones have gone to UKIP.

    Matt says:

    Oh my heart bleeds for the TPA.

    You wouldn’t happen to know who funds this organisation that claims to represent me would you Guido?

      Sandra in Accounts says:

      I donate money to them for one – like many thousands of working class taxpayers in the private sector who are sick of being fleeced by a parasitical public sector.

      Which bloodsucking non job are in you btw?

    Kate Reilly says:

    Shirkers of the world, unite!

    Paniagua says:

    It will not be long before you do not see any of these two out in public for fear of rioting.


  15. 28
    George "blankety blank" Osborne says:

    If you think I’m going to stand up for more than 5 minutes on March 20 to try and get the economy sorted you have got to be kidding.

    On this Ed and I have a common purpose, a “no policy” approach works for me every time. Now let’s get on with really serious stuff like gay marriage and my expenses.


  16. 31
    The BBC, Common Purpose & the EU says:

    It’s all going to plan.


  17. 34
    Dr Evil says:

    They achieved power and became lying arseholes. Nothing changes. Politicians are all scum; red, blue or that vile vomit colour the Lib Dumbs espouse.


  18. 35
    Labour Treason says:

    Because, Labour have sent the UK economy on a downward spiral from which it may never recover.


  19. 36
    Geordieboy says:

    It is a pity the world wasn’t flat then we could throw all the useless bastards off the edge.


  20. 38
    Jimbo says:

    Lies, Lies and more Lies, you cannot trust them. We will stop immigration ! result more immigration which is why we are building more houses, ready for the Romanian and Bulgarian mass influx.

    It is wonderful how they attack hard working folk on inheritance tax and yet do not include Land for this savage tax ! There is a movement growing in this Country to take all land back from Land owners over 300 acres for the people and rent it back
    After all, the Land Owners have benefited from massive amounts of money awarded by the EU (from tax payers) and now it is time for it to be returned to benefit it’s rightful owners. I somehow do not think Cameron and his inlaws will be happy should that happen.

    Blind_leading_the_blind says:

    “…What ever happened to the Conservatives?”

    Late news reaching order-order towers – the Conservatives didn’t win the last election, and so couldn’t implement their manifesto promises.


  22. 45
    Red Ed says:

    I’ve been reading about how you don’t need more than one political party to have a democracy, some local boy called Robert Mugabe who made good in Africa says it is wholly unnecessary.


  23. 51
    Fishy says:

    Boo Hoo everyone cries, boo hoo.

    I want my cuts restored, I want the bedroom tax removed, my library re-opened, granny tax removed, I want my house benefit cap removed, I want to receive my dole without the threat of having to find work. I want my Harriers and my aircraft carriers back. I want my hospital re-opened, I want the Government to pay for my low circulation socialist rag. As the BBC Director General, I want the tele tax increased and not frozen, I want infrastructure spending to increase, I want benefits increased, I want to increase the inheritance tax threshold as Gideon promised, I want my Incapacity Benefit back. I want the banksters to pay for everything.

    What a f.ucking country this has become – almost f.ucking ungovernable with selfish interest groups fighting each other over a dried up teet. With swivel eyed loonies like Farage power crazed stirring thing up – which he can because he will never have to deliver on anything that he promises.

    Get a f.ucking grip. All of these things seemed possible in 2007. They aren’t now. This isn’t one of our frequent 10-20 year recessions. We are in one of the biggest economic holes in our history – thanks to Gordon who with the help of the BBC has got away with it (just like labour has got away with Stafford), the Tories are left to pick up the pieces.

    And the Tories and the tight are at each others throats. The Marxists in the BBC and at the top of the Labour Party must be pissing themselves laughing.

    Get a grip.

    Retired vagina inspector says:

    They can fuckoff if they think they will get my vote at the next General Election. Politicians? I wouldn’t piss on them if they were on fire!

    matthu says:

    Chris Huhne’s bizarre fantasy claim that household energy bills would fall by £94 or 7% by 2020 because of the governments Green policies have been admitted by government ministers not to be true.

    Chris Huhne has subsequently admitted being less than economical with the truth in other areas.

    And now we have Ed Davey: “The net effect of government policy on energy bills is downwards not upwards.” DECC simply confirm they are untruthful to the core.

    No wonder Chris Clegg won’t apologise for Huhne’s lies: they are all still at it.


  26. 59
    Sir Merv ( soon to be Lord Threadneedle) says:

    Inflation is above target and rising further!

    The Deficit is above target!!

    The Debt is above target, and the highest ever!!!

    Haven’t Dave, Gideon and I done well?!!!!


  27. 62
    Ms Browns boys says:

    Just cant wait until we get millie and balls up back in charge.. then we’ll show these damn tories how to f*** up the economy and spin broken promises.


  28. 65
    Gordon Brown says:

    I would like to offer my personal congratulations to George Osborne on the marvellous way he is managing the UK economy and the ongoing preservation of my golden legacy for future generations. I would like to offer him the reassurance of any necessary pre budget advice and support in these austere Tory years and await the call from Ed to return to the Treasury after his landslide election win in 2015.

    No more boom and bust.

    “What ever happened to the Conservatives?”


    “we have absolutely no intention of doubling VAT”

    Geoffrey Howe, April 1979

    Keith Peat says:

    Yes. Add: ‘We will stop the war on the motorist.’

    Since then they have increased prison term & invented another for drivers when generally prison terms are going down. They have let local authority Rottweilers loose with massive powers to extract unfair indirect taxation via spurious use of ticketing. They have allowed blanket arbitrary lowering of speed limits which makes offenders of perfectly safe drivers, There are 22 new reasons to take your vehicle off the road & so it goes on.

    Cameron is a Cunt says:

    this conservative government are a load of fucking nazis

    Tally Ho! A hunting we will go. says:

    Voted Tory all my life but not for these Policies. The Tories have ‘gone away’ so it’s Tally Ho to UKIP!
