    We could do with The Blessed Margaret instead of the useless Camoron.

    I checked Camoron out before he became leader and it made woeful reading and convinced me then that he was probably going to be the worst that modern Conservatives could have come up with but I think the next one, Osborne, will be even worse.

    Can't argue with that, I have never voted for Camoron and I have voted Conservative all my life.

    Not working out too well though with the SNP is it as far as I can tell?

    The choice coming our way,
    will be British or European.

    I will stick with British, and Cameron can take his family and soddy offy to Europe, the place he obviously loves.

    It's working as well as any political party. At least they are acting as one without the back stabbing shenanigans of the other two main parties.
    UKIP are now turning on each other, what LibDems are doing God only knows and the Greens are away with the Fairies !

    In other words, everything is normal
