Conservative Future – yuk


Good work from the ‘Don’t Panic’ team. Go watch this video.

“Conservatives offer more to the people on council estates than the Labour Party ever did”.

Repealing the ban on fox hunting and cutting inheritance tax > increasing investment in education, the NHS, etc?

“I think one of the reasons Labour hammered us so hard in ’97 was that they successfully stereotyped the Conservative brand as ‘The Tories’…ohh…you know…the negative connotations of that hit us for quite a few years”.

And here was me thinking the Tories have been known as the Tories for a few hundred years now.

“I’m 15…the person who probably most attracted me to the Conservatives is William Hague…The same with Major”.


“Lots of students now have posters of Boris Johnson on their wall whereas twenty years ago it was posters of Che Guevara”.

I am sceptical of this claim, being a student and all. Talking of scepticism: 

“What’s your proof that there is global warming?”

Um, well surely you should be directing that question at your party leader. David Cameron wouldn’t have gone to have all those photos taken in the snow with the huskies if he didn’t believe that global warming is a real problem?

“Personally, I want to be a mother. Every woman in society should try to achieve that…It sounds really old-fashioned but it’s true you know”.

Oh lord.

“The Conservative Party is pretty rock’n’roll”.

The Phil Collins’ variety rather than anything good.

No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party.”

That final quote is not from the video, of course, but it seems appropriate.
