Labour, the SNP and an impending constitutional crisis?


Post Image

The Conservative Party is working hard to expose the chaos that will ensue if Labour are put in power by the SNP: In particular: 1) Income tax cut for 30m people. 2) The deficit cleared. 3) Two million more jobs. 4) A home of your own. 5) The State Pension increased. This is what a Conservative Government will do, but Ed Miliband – propped up by the SNP – would put it all at risk. For the Telegraph, Philip Johnston […]

The Conservative Manifesto and the type of country we want to be


Post Image

This election is about the type of country we want to be. We can keep going forward with the Conservatives, and build a country where those who work hard and do the right thing can enjoy a good life.

The Conservative Manifesto is now available here (PDF). David Cameron […]

General Election 2015 – only by voting Conservative can you secure our country’s future

Labour weakness and the SNP: the Conservative campaign should emphasise the Labour backbenches


Post Image

Via Share the Facts, Nicola Sturgeon’s demands to make Ed Miliband Prime Minister are summarised: Last night, Nicola Sturgeon confirmed what we already knew: she’s offering to help make Ed Miliband Prime Minister. The SNP’s list of demands to prop up a weak Labour leader is getting longer – and hardworking taxpayers would pay the price. The prospect of a Labour/SNP coalition is exceptionally concerning: it would leave our country disarmed, vulnerable economically and liable to break apart, amongst other things. I […]

Myth-busting – most new jobs are full-time and high-skilled


Post Image

Locally and nationally, opposition politicians are attempting to discredit the Government’s record by claiming new jobs are zero-hours and low-skilled. Here is what Iain Duncan Smith said in the Commons on 11 Feb 2015: Let me now deal with the suggestion that these people are moving into part-time, low-quality work. That is not true. The Opposition constantly harp on about a figure that has no basis in fact, so let me give the facts. Full-time employment is up by over […]
