Cast Iron Dave’s Pie Crust Promises

David Cameron, September 2007:Today, I will give this cast-iron guarantee: If I become PM a Conservative government will hold a referendum on any EU treaty that emerges from these negotiations.”

David Cameron, January 2013:  “If elected in 2015, a Conservative Government will hold an in-out referendum on a new settlement with the EU – stay in the EU on these new terms; or come out.”

David Cameron, 2010 manifesto: “We will raise the inheritance tax threshold to £1 million to help millions of people who aspire to pass something on to their children.”

David Cameron, yesterday: “[Inheritance tax is] something we’ll have to address in our manifesto. I believe in people being able to pass money through the generations and pass things on to their children.”

Why should we believe you this time, Prime Minister?

        Hey – Dave’s promise include the phrase ‘if it hasn’t taken effect’ or such-like ……. it had.

        That said, although it had been passed in Parliament it sat in Brussels waiting all the other countries’ approval until late on. Gordon could then have said ‘we didn’t go along with it’.

        The truth hurts – but do get the real truth. Which is – Dave wants to stay in, and is using the Scotch (correct term) referendum as a rehearsal of his arguments.

            What he, nor any other senior conservative politician, has ever said is what the hell the referendum will be about when the EU rejects his reforms.

            What sort of EU would he be campaigning for us to stay a part of? The language used suggests strongly that if his reforms are rejected, that he would campaign for out.

            IF Cameron were to admit that, then he could win the next election.

            IF however, his claim that he would never ever lead the UK out of the EU is true instead, and regardless of the reforms, he will campaign for in, or just simply cancel the referendum, then Miliband will be PM.

        Dave's a Heathite Get Over it says:

        Really?
        Dave has no desire to leave the EU nor does he want ‘smaller’ government. Actions are what you have to judge him by an on every occasion he’s chosen the EU, the option for big spending and the growth of government. Sound bites and policy proposals that die as soon as the news release is deleted do not make a coherent policy to put our relationship with Europe on a new footing. Dave has every chance now of getting a slim majority in 2015 I’m sure he’ll use it as the excuse not to rock the boat on Europe.

    Lie 9: David Cameron: “Yes, we back Sure Start.

    It’s a shame that the Sun has gone behind the paywall – Cameron had a front page in 2009 (BEFORE the election) telling the people of Britain why he could no longer hold a referendum on Lisbon. That’s BEFORE the election

    It’s astonishing that some UKIPpers over on the Speccie site were claiming the other week that it was actually Cameron that signed the Lisbon Treaty.

    For their benefit:

    – The Lisbon Treaty was signed by David Miliband and the Gordon Brown on the 13th December 2007.

    – Gordon the Slug, who had promised a referendum on Lisbon reneged on his promise and crept into Lisbon out of the sight of preying eyes to sign it long after the official ceremony had ended

    – Brown said a referendum was not needed because Lisbon was not a constitution and something that fundamentally changed the nature of our relationship with Europe- this was a lie

    – Brown’s so called Lisbon ‘opt outs’ have proved to be worthless

    – Labour gob-shite Caroline Flint (an expert on everything given the number of jobs she had) as Minister for Europe and responsible for overseeing the introduction of Lisbon, never read the Lisbon Treaty

    – Denied a referendum by Brown, the British people unlike those elsewhere in Europe never got a say. The Treaty was ratified by Brown in December 2009 – despite an impending General Election and protests from Cameron and others.

    So in summary (for those Kippers) it was Brown what singed it.

    “Inheritance tax”
    could be rationalised by offering payers the option to donate said sum to medical research etcetera. Since is not possible to bequeath sufficient moneys to offspring for the purchase of treatments that do not exist. But if all who were able to subscribe did so, the future health and continuation of all our descendants and theirs might be secured.

    All politician’s make promises they can’t keep too us gullible voters. Once in power the spin starts and one by one the promises become good ideas and then promises again for the next election process.

    The excuse that its a coalition is wearing thin but it is a reality.

    Cameron is going to have to preform a miracle if he is to convince the public to believe him and vote for him at the next election.

    His biggest mistake was not holding the referendum before the end of this parliament. Europe can afford to wait him out and see what the next government looks like. Europe doesn’t have to make a single concession for years, and if labour get in next year, there’ll be no referendum.

    Cameron has a difficult job. But he wanted the job. Its time he stood up and acted like a conservative.

    The Conservative Manifesto is the indication of what a Conservative government would do. Fortunately or unfortunately, there hasn’t been one since early 1997. So this is all neither here nor there.
