Quote of the Day

Montie muses on the way to the polling station:

“I worry how Mr Cameron will interpret a large Tory vote. I remember him rejecting an in/out vote only a few years ago. He now insists he’s deadly serious about renegotiating Britain’s membership but there’s not much evidence that he’s building EU-wide alliances in support of a different kind of Europe. I don’t know anyone who thinks he’ll ever campaign for an “out” vote. Will he get many concessions from other heads of government if they know he’ll stay in the European club regardless?

…I’ll also think about why Ukip can win lots of votes from disillusioned Labour voters and Tories can’t. I’ll regret that the Eurosceptic right is so divided. A Tory-Ukip pact wouldn’t work; it would frighten too many in middle Britain. Yet Mr Cameron has to find a way to appeal to Ukip voters, the angry, working-class casualties of the globalisation experiment, the benefits of which are not equally distributed.”

    …Message to “The Sun” newspaper: Unless something changes, my vote will go to UKIP in next years GE, despite your attempted manipulation!…(I dont’ think you understand ?)

      An apt name, who reads the Sun anyway, is no longer Free on line… their opinion & advertisers are for those who wish to pay for the privilege… is interesting how many friends quote the Mail, Express or Mirror… rarely the Sun these days.

    When Cameron lied his way into leadership of the Tory Party, being a reasonable chap I gave him the benefit of the doubt. He has proved to be the most obnoxious, futile, muppet that he looked to be before he took to wearing a corset, losing his hair and sailing under false colours. You can take that anyway you or he fancies. Heath was an arrogant and self-important liar, Eden was a drugged up fop who didn’t think and paid the price. Macmillan was a rich, Anglo-American who loathed us. So Cameron isn’t that singular QED. Where do they keep finding them? Oh…Eton.

    Maimed Codger says:

    It is patently obvious how Cameron can appeal to UKIP voters but I doubt he will fall on his sword. A change in leadership might do it, with the New PM being given the chance the voters gave Cameron, however this week the voters will tell him & his deputy … they are very wrong in gauging the mood of said voters.

    Dave has not done the Numbers, that is his big problem… will he admit there is an anti Gay Vote, will he recognize this tide is against him & his party, that it is of his own making.
    Backing losers until they are forced to resign, has not shown Loyalty but instead a grave error of judging the situation, as this election will prove he has, over the European issue.
