    :p:p:p

    The spending and tax changes will get watered down if they get a majority I’m under no illusion there. Very similar to the Labours plans, they’ll get watered down if they get in.

    You mean a winning party won’t fully honour their manifesto?

    I’m shocked!

    Don't be deceived by their outwardly docile appearance. Allegedly they will be rioting in the streets if we don't Brexit on 31 October...

    Sajid Javid really is an appalling orator, he's about as inspiring as a bin bag full of turds.

    I have to be honest i feel the same about Cleverly, he's bloody awful and errs and hums throughout all his interviews. They need to stop putting him on

    That is a kind of tribal way of looking at it - in the mixture of circumstances austerity measures were not without merit as an approach to the situation - it was a very high risk environment and emulating Germany for instance could have just as easily backfired as it could have been successful. Ultimately though it was based on a Lib Dem plan and the Tories have abandoned the second stage of it which would have seen a transition into spending - I'm not entirely sure if it is because the Tories are clueless, suits them ideology wise or more likely none of them wanted to take some actual responsibility in case things did crash while they had their hands on the wheel.

    This is pretty spectacular even by her standards.

    I watched a bit on the BBC parliament channel when Esther McVey was on talking about a northern construction powerhouse and she had no clue what she was saying. She just scatter bombed random words like "3D visuals" "architecture" etc and then sat back and waited the awkward pause out till the applause light came on. I wanted to die.

    Maybe getting mixed up with 3D printing (construction) techniques and 3D design - not very inspiring for a housing minister to be that out of touch.

    We've been making houses in 3D since houses existed, then again it's the same Minister who thought her work at the DWP (planned obsolescence of poor people), was good.

    Ah, the Conservative Party Conference, a popular destination for SAGA holidays and also for the annual UK Spot-the-Under-50s Championship.

    Can anyone tell me why Gauke, Grieve, and a few other supposedly former members were at the conference?

    I think Grieve was due to make a speech at a fringe meeting at the conference (and was going to be protested at by Brexit supporters).

    So conservatives are funding conservative constituencies. Pity that people miss the loss of companies employing as the flip side.
    Spend vs income from trade.

    Doesn’t seem logical to me..

    Removing the whip doesn't, on it's own, remove membership of the party. But, in any case, membership is not a requirement of entry for party conferences.

    They want the whip returned to them and are clawing at the Tory door begging to come up. Pathetic ***** and i hope they're permanently told to **** off
