Indeed once again Hannan hits the nail on the head, this of course begs the question why is he still in the pro EU Conservative Party?

This is one of the reasons I joined UKIP, Cameron is a Europhile as are many around him, those waiting for him to do the right thing will be waiting a long time. Euro skeptics in the party have two choices, either take conrol of the party back from these people or join the real conservatives in UKIP.

1p? he's going to get more than that back through VAT as the price continues to rise. Real action needs to be taken on fuel, if he lets it continue to rise the Tories will pay dearly for his lack of vision as prices across every sector increase.

Nearly attacked? they were attacked. I want to know why the hooligan element were not snatched from the crowd, remove them and things would have quietened down. Anyway good day for the Tories yesterday, increase went through, Lib Dems got the blame and the headlines today are all about thugs that no one in their right mind would support.

David Miliband has got a nerve, he should keep very quiet about human rights given his parties record on them.

Maybe I'm confused but didn't Labour lose the election and as such we were going to see the back of this sort of nannying nonsense? I respect Frank Field but this is silly, just look at some of the individuals the care system turns out, the state is the last thing that should be involved in bringing up children.

It'll be a sad state of affairs if anyone blames us for the upcoming cuts/tax rises, surely anyone with a functioning brain knows Labour are to blame for the mess we're in.

Good lord, government robots can even make Twitter sound sinister.

Let them have their rainbow coalition, bring it down and then clean up in a fresh election. Even some Labour MPs think this stitch up is wrong, it won't last long enough for them to get anything through.

Whatever we do we must be seen to be acting in the national interest, if we do that and it all falls apart then the Lib Dems get the blame and we've proved to a lot of sceptics that we're not the self serving party of the rich Labour and the BBC have painted us as. We also need to understand that the party interest is not the same as the national interest, to suggest that comes across as arrogant in the extreme. In six months we could be back at the polls electing a majority Conservative government if we keep it together, if we can't do that then we don't deserve power. Labour have barely been able to keep it together over the last few years, the party is split and they're very likely to descend into backstabbing and infighting. While they fight among themselves we can prove to the people that we're fit to govern, look at it as a probationary period.

Reform party funding so union members have to donate directly to Labour rather than through the union, combine that with an upper limit on how much any organisation (including unions) or individual can donate and Labour will be finished. We've shown how much can be raised in smaller amounts, let them try it.

If we come up short and need Lib Dem support then we'll have to agree to the referendum, the alternative is a Lib-Lab stitch up and a referendum on the bent system Labour want to introduce, at least this way we'll get a say on the system. I can't believe some people would prefer another five years of Labour to a referendum on PR, it's not like we have to campaign for a yes vote.

Good god their campaign has descended into farce, I think we can safely ignore them and concentrate on St Clegg the fraudsters pal.

This is great news for us, we don't need to hammer home "Vote Yellow, Get Brown" as Brown is doing it for us.

Have we given up? I've seen too much activity over the last few days from the top, might be for the best as all they seem to do is make a bad situation worse.

The Lib Dems could split the lefty vote and UKIP supporters may finally wake up, it's not over yet by a long way.

They also promised a referendum on Lisbon but instead joined Brown in stitching us up, he'll be reminded of that no doubt.

and off go Daves fair-weather friends back to the Lib Dems while UKIP enjoy the company of our more traditional supporters. Well done.

You've just given a good reason, if you waste your vote on UKIP you'll get another five years of Brown.

Bit late now isn't it? The best hope now would be to drive home the message "Vote yellow, get Brown". This wouldn't have been a problem if Cameron hadn't tried to turn the party in to the Lib Dems. What a mess. Maybe a little less preparation for the next debate would help, Cameron works best unscripted and speaking from the heart.

Ashley - We had the misfortune to pick a nutter, he was dealt with. The Lib Dems are claiming to be holier than thou while lying through their teeth in all their election literature. This on top of using our money to promote themselves via the town halls answer to Pravda. Oakley was an idiot but he's gone, with the exception of one drunken councillor the Lib Dems are still carrying on as before.
