At least Milliband is honest about it.

One look at Clegg's face says it all, as the weeks go by that man looks more and more uncomfortable. Surely its time for a GE if only to put him out of his misery.

All in all a good PMQs for Cameron who beat Miliband 6-1 so to speak! It showed how inept Ed M is as Labour Leader.
The only hit on Cameron was from Labour's Gloria de Pierro who's question he side-stepped by giving an answer diverting onto Overseas Aid.
That apart Cameron had a good day today at PMQs

It would have been nice to hear which powers Cameron is thinking of taking back to be fair. I wasn't interested in the labour bashing really, it was pointless.

So far as I can see the "complete mug who wants no rebalancing at all of EU poweres" fits all 3 party leaders.

It would be ridiculous for David Cameron to say now which powers he wants to take back from the EU.
There will be a protracted negotiation and his cards need to be kept close to his chest.
The Prime Minister was excellent at PMQs and was far from pointless.

While our born-to-rule PPE graduates lark around point-scoring in the Westminster Sandpit, events in the real world move on.
One modest piece of good news is that the Bundestag is not happy about tipping unlimited amounts of German taxpayers' money down the toilet in a futile attempt to bail out the bankrupt economies of the PIIGs. This will not be music to the ears of one Nick Clegg.....cheerleader in chief for that 21st century equivalent of John Law's Mississippi Scheme, the Eurozone.

On ConHome today there is an article from Michael Ashcroft, the man who thinks he can buy the Conservative Party, influence its policies and dictate the opinions of its members.
In his article he has demanded that the Right "turn down the noise" on Europe. Responding to this article, I expressed a polite opinion that his financial interest in this website could lead to censorship.
My post was swiftly removed and replaced by a trumped up accusation on the part of one of its underlings that I was out of order.
Lesson...Conservative Home is not a welcoming place to conservatives who believe in freedom from the European tyranny.

To be fair, I am well known as a bit of a "Bloody Aginer" and would not **** on Cameron if he was burning to death but the Editors here give me a very fair crack of the whip only occasionally spiking a post if I have been a bit too robust in my language or they consider it irrelevant to the thread. Bear in mind also that Lord Ashcroft by his funding does make this Forum available to us. I seriously doubt that a Labour Party website or any of the Official Conservative ones would be as tolerant of such a spectrum of opinions from a "Verkrampte" Old Style Tory like myself to "Uber-Roons", Micro-State Libertarians and even some Socialists and Lib-Dems.

I tend to agree with you, Martin, even though I have had the odd brush with the Editors. I am sure that the likes of Francis Maude and Ken Clarke would love to see this website closed down.
October 26, 2011 at 06:28 PM
You are not as stupid, as you are rude, to know the rules of this site. By insulting the editors, your case is not helped either. ConHome is a place for you to air your views about "European tyranny" and such like, but as my "trumped up accusation" said before, there are rules in place. In future, unlike this post, please stick to them, do not get personal, do not become insulting, and do not post irrelevance. In short, calm down and be nice.
With very best wishes,
An underling called Joseph.

David Cameron was well out of order today with that remark, he was addressing the leader of HM opposition not one of his Eton fags and he would do well to remember that. On top of that it was thoroughly bad mannered.
As an onlooker, it strikes me Cameron is only interested in his own clique of Old Etonians and a small select faction of others.

A General Election wouldn't do anything to help Nick Clegg, certainly the Liberal Democrat vote isn't as weak as many suppose, but the Labour vote isn't as strong as many suppose and the Conservative result isn't strong enough to get a majority.
So after a General Election it would be another Hung Parliament, probably with rather fewer Liberal Democrat MPs though still more than they had been getting before 1997 and at best for him a choice between a minority Labour government that would refuse to give Liberal Democrats seats in government unless Nick Clegg resigned as leader or a minority Conservative government or a second Coalition with a lower majority and the Liberal Democrats having less influence.
Or alternatively Labour and Conservative might do a deal leaving the Liberal Democrats unable to have any influence at all.
Then again that's all really that the Liberal Party, Liberal Democrats, National Liberals and Alliance have been able to hope for in their near future since 1924.
