I always read with interest that the EU is not an issue with voters. If that is the case then why is the Conservative part haemorrhaging voters. It certainly does seem to be an issue with quite a few. I should imagine Dave will duck any issue on it that comes up.

Typical, instead of sorting the root cause of the problem, Cameron goes to silence his own party members.

"There is adequate science for us to set aside form(1)" Oh dear, so it's all settled, we're all sceptics, deniers. Actually I just believe a different theory, that it has not yet been proved and the most of the pro-global warming evidence is corrupt and set to an agenda, I do not deny anything. It is this sort of stance that is losing the Conservatives voters, any blog I go on, Blue Blog, Labourlist, GF, here, the comments are all the same. The majority have people have seen through this sham and don't buy into climate change.

How will he tackle immigration when the majority is from EU countries. He's boxed himself in on that one by not being tough/tackling the EU issue and fudging it. If he were to talk tough on immigration then the question would be asked what he was going to do about it and he would be found out, again.

Here, have a look at historical temps and CO2 levels. http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/PageMill_Images/image277.gif

Too true, no more wishy washy stuff, but even if us (UKIP hordes) were offered something like a cast iron guarantee, what would it be worth? Cameron lied, he lost my vote, I don't believe a word he says now, plus he's backing the green taxes Copenhagen movement and nothing on immigration. If he loses the election he only has himself to blame. I feel very angry and let down.

I completely agree. I feel let down on the EU, I despair at Dave jumping on the climate change bandwagon and immigration is a big issue as well. Unfortunately there isn't an awful lot you can do whilst you are at the mercy of the EU and Dave's dodged that one. Someone said earlier that only the chattering classes were bothered about the EU and the new president/FS, well I think he was wrong. I think that blogs/internet have changed that and more people are far more aware.

Labour used 9/11 7/7 as a cover to implement powers to spy on and control the general public, Labour and now Conservatives are using climate change to clobber as with lots of new taxes. Obviously some one has said to Dave, we're in the shit financially, this global warming thing is crap but we need the money. I always like to post these questions when ever green taxes rears its ugly head. Now let me see, you want to stop air travel pollution. Do you A) Build more runways to allow more flights? B) Tax air travel more? You want to curb vehicle pollution. Do you A) Give money to car vehicle manufacturers R&D dept. to speed up fuel cell development thereby eliminating vehicle pollution? B) Increase Road Tax to an extortionate level? Here’s a clue, answer A) sorts/reduces the problem, answer B) generates revenue in the form of tax. So, do we want more tax or reduce pollution, I think I already know the answer to that. So Dave, when you see your lead dropping in the polls, it is because people like me who were going to vote Tory, have shifted to UKIP (or somebody else) and yes this may help Labour, but to be honest I can't seem to get a fag paper between the two parties at the moment. Here's a clue, keep your promise on the EU and kick climate change into the long grass until we have some honest scientific research that we can read and digest. And even then, stop the causes of pollution, taking money from us in the form of green taxes doesn't stop it, it just makes us poorer.

I neither see nor hear anything from the Conservatives that leads me to believe that they will challenge anything from the EU. I am struggling to see why I should vote for them.

Yes, we can see Labour & UKBA are getting tough on immigration. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1228739/This-man-married-OWN-daughter-allowed-stay-Britain--Home-Office-knew-it.html

Well perhaps if Cast Iron Dave had kept to his word, then he wouldn't be losing percentage points in the polls. I'm fed up to the back teeth with Labour, but I just get the nagging feeling that the Conservatives aren't going to be much different (other than sorting out the economy). Perhaps CMD could stick to what he promised, then maybe we'd all feel a bit more comfortable about his election manifesto. As it is, I'll take anything he says with a pinch of salt.

Lucky you, I ordered mine last Wednesday and I'm still waiting. Not that I should complain, as it's free, more that I'm keen to have a read of it.

You're right in that it won't go away, but the public is lazy and tends to tick the red or blue box. The consequences of the EU need to be defined more sharply for them to change their lemming like voting habits.

"Look forward to your stimulating responses..." I don't think you're going to get one.

Well, it may not win or lose an election, but it may have an unpleasant effect on the results for Cameron. It's going to be an interesting 6 months in the run up to the election.

I also do not like fox hunting, but CMD is going to give a free vote (MPs) on that. I don't like being ruled by the EU, but I'm not going to get a vote on that. If we withdraw from EU direct rule, we don't need to worry about road pricing.

Not good enough, too wishy washy. No, I'm not a Labour Troll and no I have never voted UKIP in a GE before, but this may be the one.
