Come back to 2010 with me, and the Conservative Contract……..

A contract between the Conservative Party and you

Camerons Immigration Promise

(I’ve highlighted in bold, where the reality has been different…..)

Monday, 3 May, 2010

!We go into the general election on 6 May with trust in politics and politicians at an all-time low. And I can understand why: the years of broken promises (Immigration reduced to tens of thousands?, hmm, see below….), the expenses scandal (MILLER anyone?…), the feeling that politicians have become too remote from the people (14 holidays in 4 yrs Mr Cameron, and an 11% pay rise) – they’ve all taken their toll.

That’s why I’m making this contract with you.

For too long, you’ve been lied to by politicians saying they can sort out all your problems. But it doesn’t work like that. Real change is not just about what the government does. Real change only comes when we understand that we are all in this together; that we all have a responsibility to help make our country better. This contract sets out my side of the bargain: the things I want to do to change Britain. But it also makes clear that I cannot do it on my own. We will only get our economy moving (more debt in 4 yrs than 13 under Labour!), mend our broken society and reform our rotten political system (Miller, Fox, Harper etc),  if we all get involved, take responsibility, and work together

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********************


We will change politics
Our political system needs to change. Politicians must be made more accountable, and we must take power away from Westminster and put it in the hands of people – individuals, families and neighbourhoods.

If you elect a Conservative government on 6 May, we will:

  • Give you the right to sack your MP, so you don’t have to wait for an election to get rid of politicians who are guilty of misconduct…….. 4yrs+ and nothing yet!


  • Cut the number of MPs by ten per cent, and cut the subsidies and perks for politicians……..4yrs+ and nothing yet!


  • Cut ministers’ pay by five per cent, and freeze it for five years…….. 11% MP pay rise announced in Dec 2013


  • Give local communities the power to take charge of the local planning system and vote on excessive council tax rises.


  • Make government transparent, publishing every item of government spending over £25,000, all government contracts, and all local council spending over £500.

We will change the economy
Gordon Brown’s economic incompetence has doubled the national debt, given us record youth unemployment, and widened the gap between rich and poor.

Unemployment is still rising, and this year we will spend more on debt interest than on schools. We need to get our economy moving.

If you elect a Conservative government on 6 May, we will:

  • Cut wasteful government spending so we can stop Labour’s jobs tax, which would kill the recovery………August 2014 and £224m damages to pay for unlawfully terminated IT contract, plus other similar wasted IT systems and fines including this info re UNIVERSAL CREDIT, from Wikipedia……The schedule has slipped. Only one of four planned pilots went ahead according to the original schedule, and this pilot was restricted to extremely simple cases. There were reports that all the benefit calculations had to be done manually in spreadsheets, which implied that only the digital forms part of the system was working correctly. A maximum of 25,000 people – just 0.2% of all benefit recipients – will be transferred onto Universal Credit by the next general election in 2015




  • Get Britain working by giving unemployed people support to get work, creating 400,000 new apprenticeships and training places over two years, and cutting benefits for those who refuse work…….. Massive RISE in sanctions and unpaid workfare. Apprenticeships – how many get a full time job at the end, and how many on £2.73?


  • Control immigration, reducing it to the levels of the 1990s – meaning tens of thousands a year, instead of the hundreds of thousands a year under Labour. UP……. from 175,000 in 2012/13 to 243,000 in 2013/14

We will change society
We face big social problems in this country: family breakdown, educational failure, crime and deep poverty. Labour’s big government has failed; we will help build a Big Society where everyone plays their part in mending our broken society.

If you elect a Conservative government on 6 May, we will:

  • Increase spending on health every year, while cutting waste in the NHS, so that more goes to nurses and doctors on the frontline, and make sure you get access to the cancer drugs you need………. Real terms spending DOWN – see graph below…. Source The Kings Fund


  • Support families, by giving married couples and civil partners a tax break, giving more people the right to request flexible working and helping young families with extra Sure Start health visitors. Sure Start centres closed – click here…. Closures Family Breakdown – Massive changes to legal aid, many unable to access it now –


  • Raise standards in schools, by giving teachers the power to restore discipline and by giving parents, charities and voluntary groups the power to start new smaller schools……. Widespread dissatisfaction with 4 yrs of Michael Gove. Free schools picking out the brightest kids.  See this….. 


  • Increase the basic state pension, by relinking it to earnings, and protect the winter fuel allowance, free TV licences, free bus travel and other key benefits for older people. ………Winter fuel allowance reduced – see here…. Winter Allowance Reduced



  • Create National Citizen Service for every 16 year old, to help bring the country together.

One thought on “Come back to 2010 with me, and the Conservative Contract……..

  1. Reblogged this on Britain Isn't Eating and commented:
    Just a reminder of all the shit promises Cameron made for the 2010 election, and which he reneged on.

    Some voters are expecting the promises he made before the 2015 election to be adhered to; well, hes already started breaking the Northern Powerhouse ones by reneging on the electrification of Northern Rail lines, despite going ahead with the upgrades down South, and particularly in his own constituency!

    The sheeple continue to stand bent over hands on knees whilst the Tories come boldly up behind them to shaft them up the arse once again!

    For Fuck sake, stand up straight & clench those buttocks as well as your fists and fight fucking back!!

    2020 is your last chance so dont waste it else we’ll all be fucked whether we bend over willingly or not!
