Just 10 months in power and it’s already falling apart for Cameron

The Conservatives have not been in Power since John Major and that only changed in May last year. Prior to that of course they shared the floor with the Liberal Democrats. “Come back… all is forgiven!” Sort of. It seems the Lib Dems had been keeping them in check after-all because since May 2015 the Conservatives have been running amok, bringing the house down with it and quite honestly pissing everyone right off.

In fact the downward spiral started at the end of 2015 when Cameron announced he would negotiate his new terms for the EU as part of the referendum ‘Remain’ package. Bet he wishes he hadn’t started all that now.

Since then we have just about seen it all and perhaps now we are waiting for the final few scenes before they completely implode. Below is a bullet point list of all that has happened so far in no particular order. (If we have missed anything in particular let us know in the comments – contributions added at the end of the article)

● Tories split on EU referendum
● Defeat on Working Tax Credits
Defeat on solar tax
U-Turn on PIP cuts
IDS Quits ministerial position
● J. Hunt fails on BMA negotiations
● Jr.Doctors conduct Strike action
● N. Morgan faces Teacher backlash
● NUT threatens strike action
● Osbourne 2016 budget labelled unfair
● Osbourne misses every fiscal target
Defeated on immigration ammendment to accept 3,000 unaccompanied child refugees
Corbyn leads in Polls over Cameron
● Huge decline in Industry sectors such as steel industry as steel industry collapses under Tory government
● Financial bail out of banking industry
● Contracts for infrastructure such as Nuclear power stations and HS2 offered to foreign investors such as China & France
● Cameron’s own admission that deal was done with Saudi Arabia to put them in charge of Human Rights council
● Sell off of Post office for under the value of its worth.

Not to mention multiple other goings on in the public eye such as evidence that the poorest people will be 10% worse off this parliamentunder the tories whilst the richest will be better off. Boris Johnson making a fool of himself by declaring Sadiq Khan dangerous for London. Allegations that the NHS downgraded how much they needed to survive. Government to repeal animal welfare industry standards. Disability protesters inside Houses of Parliament. The confirmation that the working poor are to face £12 Billion more in cuts this parliament. Not to mention the public & pathetic theatrical displays of childish bullying by the prime minister during Prime Ministers Questions and also the vote to frack underneath national parks. Continuation of HS2 now reaching an expected £50 Billion and won’t even be ready until 2026.. and that’s just phase 1. The complete refusal to discuss cannabis laws despite expert evidence in favour of legalising cannabis.

In 2010 they made a promise to build 250,000 homes every year, they failed. In 2015 they issued the same promise and still they are failing to build anywhere near this number of houses as the housing crisis continues.

In fact we kept a loose list of things that went wrong whilst they shared power with the Liberal Dems;

-Austerity
-Wages not keeping pace with inflation
-Wage freezes
-Public service cuts
-ATOS 
-Bedroom Tax
-Support for Israel despite unofficially recognising Palestine
-Supply of Arms to Israel continues 
-War in Iraq
-Intervention in Syria
-Continued war in Afghanistan 
-ISIS 
-Failed to enact a referendum on the EU in parliament
-Promises to reform the EU but has not shown how they can do this
-Overseen failed attempts to organise an internal review on failure to Document child abuse allegations
-Contempt of the people by calling people who believe a child abuse cover up has taken place as ‘conspiracy theorists’. 
-Contempt of the people by suggesting that fringe left are considered domestic extremists
-Altering policy to suit UKIP voters
-Privatisation of the NHS can be seen but is denied as being the case. 
– “All in it together” slogan (we’re not)
– No advancement in improving the housing crisis
– Demonisation of the poor evidenced in part by their use of pie chart on Tax forms regarding welfare spending
– Downsizing council tenants despite not making available new properties to cope with demand
– Affordable housing, not being affordable
– The unpopular universal credit scheme 
– Introduction of the Badger Cull
– Advancement of Fracking despite major opposition. 
– Negotiating a 1% compensation scheme from Fracking companies to residents despite the US government negotiating an 11% package. 
– No energy policy in place
– Advancement of the unpopular TTIP
– GCHQ/NSA debacle
– Zero hour contracts and part time work being used to manipulate unemployment figures

All we need now is for the PLP to stop derailing the Labour Party with infighting and get behind Corbyn. Thankfully it seems the public are seeing through the mess and the PLP are doomed to accept the changes or get out.

  7. Other big Tory crimes:

    Sell off of publicly owned shares in RBS at a £22bn loss. Changing laws on trespass to allow fracking companies to drill underneath private property. Rolling back protections for national parks to allow fracking companies to drill underneath them (as long as the well sites were situated outside the boundaries – for now). Privatising the Land Registry so that monies paid to it no longer go into central treasury funds, whilst simultaneously giving the new private company sole responsibility for making planning decisions over publicly owned land (such as national parks and greenbelts) which will open the door to them being sold off to property developers or, obviously, fracking companies. Bypassing democracy by overruling local planning officials and making decisions over fracking applications a ministerial one. Selling off our publicly owned schools to Tory donors’ companies in a huge asset stripping exercise disguised as creating ‘academies’. Destroying the UK fire service leaving huge swathes of the UK unprotected in emergency cases. There’s so much going on it’s exhausting trying to keep pace with the psychopaths!
