Happy Birthday to CONSERVATIVEhome not bloody KIPPERHome. This (above) is how the page should be set out from now on - not all those silly little thumbs up and thumbs down, which the Kippers manipulate with their "friends" from the old people's homes up and down the country!

I personally think Nigel spoke not just for UKIP but for the British people as a whole, and as Huxley said above, he was quite sympathetic to Cameron. I did read this week that Mr Farage is supposed to be winding UKIP up and returning to the Conservatives in return for a safe seat - I sincerely hope there is some truth in this?

Roger states "Charity is not politics but the opposite of politics. It is not an attempt to control people, to create a new political order or to impose an ideological agenda. It is an offer of help, from one body of citizens to another. Recognising this, the English law has defined charity as a sphere of its own, outside the activity of government" I agree with those points Roger, as my wife works in the charity sector - but as a staunch Conservative it pains me to say that "we" are as guilty of manipulating so called charities to suit our political agenda as the Labour Party are - and I am thinking one particular "charity", which is ASH. ASH does nothing truly worthwhile and just bows to Party Policy while getting handsomely rewarded by the taxpayer. Roger goes on to say "This is the very opposite of charity, in which people give their time, energy and resources for free, in order to help their neighbours along a path that the neighbours themselves have chosen" ASH are not there to help their neighbours along a path that the neighbours themselves have chosen - just the opposite in fact, they are there to order and bully their neighbours into doing exactly what they say, at the behest of their political masters. Is there any way, Mr Scruton, you can see that we can challenge this so called "charity"?

Bit silly really - but not as silly as the young lady who described him as "good looking" Posh? - Maybe. Not posh? - Maybe. Good looking? - Definitely not!

Oh yes - pull the other one Ed. With the Big Len now talking up a storm this leaves Red Ed and his party dead!

I don't believe I am hearing this, from Labour, the party who instigated the selling off of our playing fields - Labour who banned competitive sports. You can fool some of the people some of the time Mr Brennan - but don't push your luck!

How on earth would Ed Balls know that simply giving the banks money doesn't solve the problem? Balls has never solved a problem in his life - he's created many but solved - Never!

And still Labour refuse to denounce this "man" - what has happened to our country?

And that - ladies and gentlemen is straight from the horses mouth! If Livingstone thinks that Cameron is telling lies about him, now is the time for him to stand up and demand a public appology! Will he - won't he? Watch this space!

Of course they are all left-wing militants Winston. They are part of the same rent-a-mob that usually pops up on here whenever the NHS is mentioned. I thopught it was quiet on here today - they were all there trying to derail the Government - and using the NHS as an excuse for it

What a ghastly mob that was. I have no particular liking for Lansley - but he shouldn't have had to face a baying rent-a-mob like that, and that woman should have been moved on by the police!

What on earth has happened to MI5 or is it now MI6? In the old days they would have sent someone to have a little chat with Mr Qatada in the middle of the night - and hey-presto no one would have seen him again!

I have been saying exactly this for the last couple of years. I love the way Nigel stands up for us in the European parliament - I wish we had Conservative meps who would act as tough! I have met Nigel and he is a thouroughly likeable man, and one who I would love to see join us as a Conservative!

Couldn't see the video - but going by the lead comment: "Daniel Hannan: The EU wants everybody to copy it‬" The big problem that I see here is we do all copy the EU, who will be left to pull the flush and turn the lights out?

As David said "Some people might call it opposition - some people might call it hypocrisy" I have another word for it, which is "deceit"

I don't know how Milliband had the audacity to stand up and say that growth has been flat-lining in our economy since well before the €urozone crisis? We all know the answer to that - yes it was "well" before the €urozone crisis - in fact it was the Labour Government Crisis that started it and which we inherited - does he really not know this or is he as thick as he looks? And to have his little playmate "Balls" sitting next to him wagging his head like the John Prescott dog in the back of a car only rubs more salt into the Labour wound. But having said that - please don't leave us Ed - you are our WMD for the next election!

I agree that we should be focusing on their record and their goal of doing damage all over again - but it is also about time we started showing them up on every single mistake they make, just like they do with us. Abbot made a racist remark - she did not speak about a political viewpoint, she spoke about a "race" of people, i.e. "white people" and she spoke about those people in a derogatory manner. What made her remark even worse was the fact that she made it to coincide with the Steven Lawrence case. In other words, she tried to jump on the "anti-racists" bandwaggon - but she boobed badly and ended up on the racist bandwaggon instead!

Nick Clegg is an absolute disgrace - and should be fired immediately!

An "olive branch" to Nick Clegg? An olive tree falling on top of him would be more appropriate!
