Vote Cameron and get Maria Caulfield !! She's not really my idea of an MP. I've only managed to find a You Tube video of her sitting on a sofa wanting to be elected in Bevendean. Is that really the best they can get ? I suppose gone are the days when MPs were considered pillars of society.

I think most people couldn't care less what Cameron says he might do in five years its pretty academic and he can always change his mind.
I can only imagine this nonsense is supposed to be diverting our attention form the real problem which is Salmons statement on Sunday that he fully intends to use a block of plastic Scottish MPs to run a Labour Government .
Let me repeat , Scotland has devolved Health Education Environment Local Government and in fact just about everything except overseas business already. They have their own Parliament about to get further powers including tax raising powers and the right to set their own Franchise for Westminster MPs.
The suggestion that they should simultaneously set Policy for England is an insult both to the English and to the whole concept of Representative democracy. On past form their will suck the English tax payer dry and then walk away from the debt
Any government of this sort is going to face immediate protest and non cooperation.

I admire your chutzpah Paul but Cameron has just lost us the election I`m afraid.The timing of this little revelation is disastrous and shows a lack of political nous unfit for a party leader and a long term P.M..Osborne surely his successor would not have been so inept or so hopelessly naive.This is a gift for Labour distracting attention away from Labour`s not inconsiderable difficulties as you suggest,but make no mistake it is a gift,personally wrapped,tied with a blue ribbon and delivered by Cameron to Milliband in person.This is disastrous.

He simply answered a question and now Labour are using it against him. The Conservatives are in the lead according to the Polls and hopefully people will see sense and the tories will have an outright majority at the next election.

There is no chance of an outright win for either main party, the key issue is how much pressure there is on Milliband not to try to govern as a minority backed by the SNP. As the Liberals will swing either way only a Conservative vote will count against Scottish rule . Even a vote Conservative in a safe Labour seat will make the case for a Scottish Raj weaker .
Every Conservative vote is vital

Do you not think Paul that if the Tories were so worried about Scottish influence in English politics they could have just saved us all a fortune by not funding the "No" campaign and just let Scotland totter off on their own as a seperate country. There is here an element of making ones own bed then having to lie in it.
I don't really see why anyone is that bothered about Dave promising to quit before a future election anyway. Unlike America where the President has a lot of actual power, the position of PM here is largely one of a figurehead. Whilst he may have a strong opinion on certain matters, everything the government does is decided by comittee and virtually all policy decisions are made by wealthy, tax-dodging party donors. Surely a more interesting story would be Lord Ashcroft saying he was going to step down before the next election or KPMG saying they were going to end their dual role of charging the government for coming up with tax rules then charging rich people to help them avoid payng it?

Wrong on all counts ECD .The PM here is hugely powerful the President is much more a figurehead and we are notable for the lack of corruption in our politics.
The only except ion is the Trade Union movement which openly buys policy elects leaders and openly does so with the threat of withdrawing funds

Your point about trade unions is taken, Mr Newman. It's an exaggeration of the role of trade unions but nevertheless, it's taken. I would argue that you yourself give away the difference in your use of the word "openly". That's the whole point. Trade Unions play a formal and codified (minor) role under the constitution of the Labour Party - unlike tax accountants who scrounge off the state in an underhand way. They, and others in the business community, are able to whisper sweet nothings about government policy into Mr Cameron's ear covertly and without any legitimacy.

Mark -I don`t object to a trade Union role in principle. The problem is that they now represent the Public sector only but retain a power in the system that was once won by all workers . They have used that power to choose their own leader for the Labour Party whose campaign they financed and who they elected against the will of his own colleagues.
When a cut back in public spending is the number one electoral question such a situation is ridiculous and dishonest.

If you can tell me one thing to stop every member of a union donating in the same way everyone else has to ( which you can`t) you might have a point. In reality union is a prerequisite for any number of benefits and the Labour Party cadge off the back of that
Still nice to see a class warrior defending the interests of the section of the population, far better off more house owning , better educated with vast pensions, against ordinary working people lwho have to foot the bill for their parasitic sectional interest.
Most people are neither rich unionised or tucked under the feather bed that is the public sector . Most taxes do not go inot care education or roads they go into their salaries and pensions
