this coalition is the mirror image of Labour. NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

I think for some people the be all and end all is knowing that the Prime Minister is a member of the Conservative Party. Details, such as piffling policies, are irrelevant in this age of style over substance.

Says the guy who criticised Clegg the other day for being a traitor..

Am pleased about Fox and May. Everything else is to the left of Nu Labour.

I think you were warned that Cameron is dangerously left wing for a few months. Little point complaining now. I'm already hearing noises that certain influential financiers are less than impressed by what they're seeing so far. And what they're seeing is a mixture of Lib Dem policies and ultra-left wing Tory ones.

New Labour seems right wing compared to what we have now. I think Cameron has killed any hope of even a centre right party governing this country again. Give if three years and the activists on here will finally see the light and question why they are so happy to have a 'Tory' in power.

If you think that Cameron is in control of events then I'd like a pint of what you've been drinking

Fiddling while Rome burns. The Lib Dems have already said the AV offer is akin to a "tiny, squeaking mouse". If Cameron had better advisers the Tories would not be doing this. Because they would be in power with a majority.

The only thing I would disagree with is that I think the Party is already the same as Lib/Lab - it is only old loyalties that are making the negotiations so difficult

Was it Cameron's decision to let Osborne run the negotiations?

Hard to disagree, even though Ken Clarke is grossly overrated. He spent the entire campaign stating that a hung parliament on Friday would result in a stock market crash on Monday. The stock market actually rose today. Has Ken Clarke apologised for misleading everyone? Of course not. He's too busy failing to understand why the euro is collapsing.

I did predict all this during the election campaign and was told off by Tim for not being pro-Tory enough. Cameron was sleepwalking into disaster. He was too surrounded by yes-men to go back to core Tory values on immigration and crime to notice though. He is Blair's heir, but without the power.

Is this website TRYING to be ridiculed? During the campaign Cameron was compared to Thatcher. Now to Churchill! Why not go the whole hog and compare him to Jesus?! Compare Cameron to Blair or Clegg, or to a car salesman who thinks he's can trick everyone into buying one of his cars, but let's not compare him to genuine world leaders who stuck by their principles

All the effort in gaining Ashcroft's money and Rupert Murdoch's support has turned off the electorate

hmmm - I wonder what he'll want in return? PR perhaps? PR? PR will mean the Tories will never gain power again!

I actually agree with this. There are better Tories than Boris out there, but there is no doubt we would have done better with him in charge. We were meant to clench our teeth and endorse Cameron because the electorate would like him. In the end only the newspapers liked him. I hope Brown, Clegg and Cameron all resign today, the electorate has spoken: they dont want any of you.

This has been an utterly damning indictment of Cameron and his woolly policies. All the 'new' Conservative candidates bar Zac Goldsmith were resoundly rejected by the electorate, and in some places the Conservatives lost seats they held! If David Davis had been in charge it would have been a landslide. The electorate has rejected the Cameron policy-lite agenda. I struggled to vote for him yesterday.

Good to see the Philippa Stroud allegations have had no immediate effect
1 reply
Has anyone picked up on this Philippa Stroud story? Stephen Fry has been tweeting that she ran prayer sessions to cure demons from gays. Philippa Stroud has deleted her Twitter account in the last half hour. Not a good news story given that she's very close to Cameron.

Hopefully the Michael Caine gaffe hasnt caused too much of an effect then. There's a rumour that a poll in the People has Cameron's Conservatives on 30% - in second place - BUT Labour on an astonishing 21%!
