Blue-grey Cameron’s economic cuts would pay for the bankers’ collapse out of the pockets of working families – those who still had jobs at all

1st May 2010

Recent television beauty debates have seen the slick Cameron and Clegg as prettier than Gordon Brown.  But beauty is skin deep.

Their policies are ugly.

In a depressing future Cameron would pay for the bankers' collapse out of the pockets of the poor while giving huge tax cuts to millionaires. Conservatism hasn't changed.

If there is one thing that has been clear from the Tories’ failure to race ahead, it is the deep public resistance to the idea of a Tory government.

People remember what happened last time and this is an unchanged Tory Party.

Remember the repossessions; the daily newspaper counts of the bankruptcies of small businesses;  the dreadful state of our public services; decaying hospitals; decaying schools; the British coal industry closed down; British ship building closed down; British steel making closed down with its remnant now owned in India; North Sea oil privatised; Water and electricity sold to overseas owners; British car making collapsed; the British tool making industry collapsed; railways disastrously privatised;

and millions unemployed while our jobs were wasted through the export of capital to low wage economies in the third world.

The Tories have not changed one jot.

  • In 1997, we promised to save the NHS. And we have. But it is under threat again.
  • We promised to rebuild our schools and drive up standards. We have. But those gains are under threat.
  • We promised to get crime down. We have. But the Tory cuts will harm every part of our public services.

Cameron and Clegg may do the spin better. But they don’t have substance.

The Tories have hateful values and bad policies. The Lib Dems have (some of) the right values – but their policies are either unaffordable, unfathomable or just plain daft. Together or alone, they are a risk to our future.

Mr Cameron’s Tories may be seen as ‘change,’ – what a vacuous term!  Economic disaster is indeed a ‘change’ – but hardly for the better.    This election is about policies; it should not be a beauty parade.  Cameron may be silky smooth but he is widely seen as remote, and out of touch from most people’s lives. People think he is fighting for the rich and the privileged, not the majority of decent hard-working families.  How many millionaires are in his shadow cabinet at the latest count?  Is it still only fourteen?

Whose interests would they represent?  If the Tories were to form a government the whole country would awaken soon enough to the devastation that would follow.
