Seems like a pretty rapid response from the Party.

Odd for you to post a thread inviting praise for the tories.

Not really. If you think they should be praised fair enough. Just a thread for the Tory party.

Any relation to Eric Joyce? Though he was Labour & violent, as opposed to Tory & racist.
Or William 'Lord Haw Haw' Joyce perhaps?

Sounds like the Joyce's should keep out of politics.

Well done the Conservative Party, for responding so quickly, and correctly in the matter.

The Conservatives have traditionally been seen as the safe pair of hands whilst others ideology have caused them electoral issues. But what we are now presented with is an increasingly fractured edifice with a number of parties within a party. If a government cannot command the support of their own party, how are they supposed to govern? Were this a blip, I could kinda see it but this has been building for 20 years and the battle for this party's soul risks wrecking the country.

The added issue is the same is true, to a degree, within the Labour party, so how are they effective in holding a government who can't govern to account? Why do Johnson and his cronies fear Farage more than Corbyn?

It is time the current form of this party to face reality. The only thing which seems to unite them appears to be a fear of being removed. Despite fractures in even this appearing, if this it, the party is serving itself rather than the electorate. Time for the party in its current form to disolve into its component parts. I won't vote for them again.

This is the most horrendous, self-serving bunch of liars and incompetents I've ever seen

Spindle 21-08-2019 09:53 AM

Incompetents? No, they have done what they wanted to

The tories reflect a 19th century economic paradigm that is increasingly shown to be busted, with their typical self-preservation, ever-decreasing circles head in sand responses. They cannot be an environmentalist party because they are at their core based on extracting every resource possible from the earth to sell and the increasingly bankrupt policies to achieve this.

I am constantly amazed to see them polling so high, but to achieve this now they are banking on getting a higher proportion of a diminishing voter base (EU leavers). This is not sustainable and they will get superceded eventually, at least i hope so..

She has now done so. Her letter states because of the likelihood of a GE in the immediate future and the Scottish elections in 2021, she does not want to be away from her family campaigning for 2 elections in 20 months so has stood down.

What makes you say that. Just passing on the conformation she has gone on the thread it is mentioned and the reasons she has given.

Are you calling her a liar?

foetus eagle 29-08-2019 10:35 AM

You can say what you like about Ruth Davidson, but at least she knows how many children she has.
