I felt that this post was very worth preserving from Conservativehome, since it is a signed contract between the Conservatives and UK citizens, the insincerity of which is very evident four years on from when it was written. I took the liberty of converting the PDF into JPEG digital images, to preserve an exact copy of the contract, just in case the Tories decide to delete the original – well they do have form, after all. (See: Some of the promises the Tories are trying to delete from the internet and Lynton Crosby’s staff deleted valid criticism from Wikipedia, for example.)
“So this is our contract with you. I want you to read it and – if we win the election – use it to hold us to account. If we don’t deliver our side of the bargain, vote us out in five years’ time.”
Signed D. Cameron
Gordon Brown’s “economic incompetence” in the face of a global crisis caused mostly by US bankers steered us out of recession by 2010, with no need for austerity measures. Furthermore, the Tories have borrowed more in just 3 years than Labour did in 13 and have not invested that money in public services. In fact the only people to have benefited from any investment at all this past 4 years are a few private companies that donate to the Conservative Party and a handful of millionaires.
Oh, and surely “incompetent” would include losing the Fitch and Moody triple A credit ratings, after promising to keep them … oh yes, that was Osborne, wasn’t it.
I could go on and address all of the other lies, but I know readers can see the enormous gap between the Tory pledges and the reality of four years of Conservative-led Government.
You cannot trust the Tories with the economy, or anything else for that matter. A glance at the pre-election empty promises and their bare-faced lies demonstrates this very well.
Vote them out, May 7th, 2015.
And vote Labour.
