David Cameron and a thing called trust

In his pursuit of power he spoke the words people wanted to hear.  He made the pledges people wanted to see honoured.

Now personal power has been achieved the questions to ask yourself are: ‘Is Cameron honouring the promises he made?’ and ‘Can David Cameron be trusted?’  Let’s take a peek as a couple of today’s observations:

David Cameron promised in March last year that a Conservative government would ban Hizb-ut-Tahrir – “ban those extremist groups like Hizb-ut-Tahrir who are already here” […]

[…] Yet nothing hs been done to ban Hizb-ut-Tahrir, why? Has David Cameron fallen for the pro-Islamic platitudes spouted by so many at the Foreign Office or was he never serious?

Not A Sheep

And then there is this…

… this year’s census is the most intrusive yet. We warned you about the census before the last election. The Tories agreed that it was invasive and intrusive… But now they’re implementing it, unchanged.

But when you add these issues to a few others do you start to see a pattern emerging?  How about Cameron:

– Letting matters rest there on the Lisbon Treaty?

– Failing to replace the Human Rights Act?

– Refusing to repatriate powers from the EU?

– Raising VAT?

– Breaking his promise to retain universal child benefit?

And there are more besides.  If you voted Conservative, was this what you voted for?  How is this outcome any different to having a Labour or Lib Dem administration?  Now ask yourseld, will you make the same mistake again?

    To be fair, AM, Cameron has kept one promise:

    ❛At a dinner with newspaper executives on the eve of his address, he took the comparison a step further. ‘I am the heir to Blair,’ he said. If his hosts were in any doubt about what they had heard, Mr Cameron repeated the mantra.❜—The Times

    Cameron is a crook & a fraud. To default on all his pledges re the EU – amoung other things is taking the voters for mugs.

    But until the great British public understand this, there will be no change. Cameron’s actions clearly demonstrate that all the three main parties are the same. Last time Tory voters – in effect – voted in support of the EU. Do they really want that?

    Pester your MP. Tell him / her that if they won’t change things the voters will!
