Let's all laugh at the Tories!Watch
"Why is theres a porn link of a woman bent over with her crutch open on your profile?"
Well? I wondered that too to be honest
*harsh but funny*
yes it is very easy for me to say because its a matter of principle. you may feel under-represented by the Government but the current system is a democratic and open process. my point is, in trying to create this ideological perfection you are destroying the very principle of parliament, democracy. and we are talking about the Conservative party. if you feel that they dont represent your interests, then dont vote for them. if they do then do. the variety of standing candidates reflects the number of voters. if they are not elected there is nothing the party can do. this holds for government and every other party. the policies in place within the Conservative party and parliament as a whole reflect 100% commitment to equality and encouragement towards standing minority candidates. jeopardising the party by engineering candidates, bypassing the party members is a terrible loss of democracy.
I'm not arguing with you over the issue of ethnic minority representation in the Tories- what I wrote is a side issue, and I think there have been enough good points made about why it would be to their electoral advantage so I wont go into much detail. I do however feel the party would broaden its appeal, which must surely be a priority, by encouraging suitable candidates to consider standing- I'm not talking about kicking out existing MPs, more seeking out prominent local figures in constituencies and giving them the necessary support to fight a seat. The Tories would do well to look at this issue, certainly- it seems like they are in the mood for some change after all.
what points have i accepted?
Some people are so damn naive. Of course the Tories will get back in power. The free market is the only thing that makes any sense! Why should I have to pay some ***** a obscene amount of tax everytime I fill up my car?
Lets be honest, with things in this country as they are, lot of the finest brains currently as schools and universities in this country will have no qualms whatsoever about happily spending their working lives somewhere out of the reach of these money snatching fools. Labour punish the rich and reward the poor... damn good incentive to be successful isn't it?
And whilst I'm angry, let me talk about the NHS. Scrap it please. By all means provide free healthcare to those too poor to pay for it. But why should I be able to get free treatment when my parents can happily pay? What really winds me up is driving in any rundown council estates you'll see every house with a Sky Digital dish. The subscription for that would virtually cover private healthcare premiums, and we'd all be taxed less. People's priorities are spot on in Britain... grrr!!
Anyway, must do something useful.
Early you said that minorities just didn't vote Tory. Now you accpet that they do.
