The Conservative Contender

a mash up with commentary
*********************************************

Some of us were not surprised by the poll published today that shows the Conservatives lead over Labour is down to 2%. We have suspected for a long time something like this would happen. What destroyed the Tory lead of course is the campaign slogan they used to launch their election campaign last week, “Vote For Change.”

The slogan is obviously borrowed from Barack Obama so no Brownie points for originality. And the punters are sick of all the talk of change when change only ever means things get worse.

Ah well, plus ca change, plus c’est le same old shite as they say halfway across the Channel. Last time of course the meme chose Labour because they promised change and what we got was precious little change out of a Trillion pounds.

Cameron hopes to emulate Obama who swept to power on a promise to change America (and a tidal wave of Arab oil money). Well it took American’s about twelve minutes to see through Obama and we Brits, traditionally more sceptical and firmly grounded in reality have bettered that by seeing through The Boy David before a vote has been cast.

The Conservatives are authors of their own misfortune however, their performance while Brown has been hunkered in the foetal position sucking his thumb and whimpering “Mummy,” has been so lacklustre and inept those few voters who ever had any confidence in them have lost it. Ironically a private poll commissioned by the Conservatives showed the party would now have one foot in Downing Street if they had kept William Hague as leader.

And what a contest that would have been. Laydeeeeez an’ Gennelmen, Your main fight tonight, for the heavyweight political championship of Grrrrrrreat Brittttain, on my right in the blue corner, the Yorkshire /Bruiser, William “Forty Pints” Hague and on my even further right in the red corner The Scottish Psycho Gordon “Gi’ ‘em one wi’ the heid” Brown.

Finding out that Hague could have been a contender is doubly ironic because the signs are the Conservatives are not eager to win an election and whoever leads them will be pressured to throw the contest.

But why? What do Central Office know that we don’t?

Strangely, the day following this post the financial markets reacted to the possibility of another 5 years of Labour by forcing a mini collapse of the Ł against other curtrencies. You Thought We Were Joking. We may be satirists but that does not mean we aren't prescient.

How Ironic That Humourless Warmageddonists Will Not See The Irony
