Another Cameron flip flop

24 hours is a long time in politics.  It is also an age when it comes to David Cameron’s position on a multitude of issues.  24 hours ago Cameron’s senior team at CCHQ advised ConservativeHome that the Trade Union Modernisation Fund would continue to exist, despite Cameron’s pledge to take on vested interests.

Today, after an outpouring of frustration from grassroots Tories, Cameron has said that the Modernisation Fund would be ‘suspended’ but the Unions’ Learning Fund will continue to soak up taxpayers’ money to be spent on trade unionists overseas and at home.  It must be wonderful being a Conservative these days when the party has such a decisive and sure footed leader.

    We aren’t even surprised are we? With Cameron, expectations are so low I almost wonder if it’s deliberate. But not for long.

    Until the Tories get a real conservative to lead them the electorate won’t have any clear choices amongst the main 3 parties. So let’s all vote UKIP.

    I have just replied about this over at Conservative Home [saw you there too, AM]. Cameron has got the party to lurch to the left and has reneged on promises, in the hope of being respected by disaffected Labour voters. Better he had stuck to conservative principles and the middle ground would have come to him.

    I can’t bring myself to vote UKIP given the way the party is managed and the illiberal racial overtones evident in their thinking on a burkha ban. They are becoming more like the BNP as they fight for votes in that part of the spectrum.
