Victory!

I just watched David Cameron walk through the front door of 10 Downing Street making every second of campaigning, canvassing and flyering worth it.

Congratulations Prime Minister Cameron!

Gordon’s Gone for Good

Gordon has gone to the Queen and thirteen years of Labour is over.

We have seen ridiculous levels of public debt, failing schools, social breakdown, public money spent on contemplation suites and what has it all been for? To appease the ideology of a few misguided leaders.

This is an exciting and interesting time. If Lib Dems go into coalition with DC then we are more than likely to see fixed term parliaments. This will bind the new partnership together and remove the possibility of DC capitalising on any honeymoon period. If we get AV+ then we will see another enormous constitutional change. Both of these will be hugely divisive issues for the traditional elements of the Conservative party and it will be interesting to see how they are sold to the grass-roots.

In the words of President Kieran Weisberg: “We always needed a bit of yellow to go properly Green”

Gordon Brown doesn’t like Democracy

Dispelling some myths:

1. When Labour say that a majority of people didn’t vote for the Conservatives they are making about the weakest case possible for their coalition. A majority of people certainly didn’t vote for Labour and even less voted for the Lib Dems and if you are a ‘progressive alliance’ then why didn’t you run as such rather than attack each other tooth and nail?

2. The  SNP say that Scottish people didn’t vote for the Conservatives in any great number therefore they don’t have a mandate to govern Scotland. I look forward to the independent Conservative state of Henley, the Green Party Kingdom of Brighton Pavilion et c.

3. Labour hacks saying that Gordon Brown is bold and impressive for putting party before self. This is complete nonsense. He just lost the election but he doesn’t want to go until September. The constitutional regulation allowing the incumbent first choice is flimsy at best. The markets want him to go, the people have said they want him to go and I would bet the Queen wants him to go.

This may all be exciting but it is also a complete farce.

Exit Polls

The exit polls are in and the results are as follows:

Conservatives – 307
Labour – 255
Lib Dems – 59
Other – 29

So it would appear that David Cameron is the new Prime Minster but only by 52 seats. Results will come in through the night and by this time tomorrow we will know for sure.

The Conservative Party is no longer the ‘nasty party’. Understanding that is the key to understanding our new compassionate Conservatism. British politics is no longer quite so much about Liberty versus Equality but instead it is about methods and delivery. Our party is championing policies that provide social mobility, better schools, deficit reduction and a rebuilt society by using methods that can be proven to work. The Labour Party would rather throw money at problems it can neither understand nor solve.

One of the key policy areas is our drastic plans to improve education. The number of boys nationwide eligible for free school meals getting three As last year was less than half those achieving the same from Eton. Something has gone horribly wrong under Labour. Our plan to rebuild education will allow the poorest children the opportunities that Labour’s stifling policies do not. We will liberalise schools and allow head teachers more power to do what they do best – managing schools. We want to encourage discipline in schools rather than have teachers helplessly bound by regulations. We will foster innovation in educational matters by supporting academies and allowing parents more input in their children’s learning.

Claiming that cuts do not have to be made to the Budget is quite simply lying. Labour tried it. But from the start the Conservatives have argued that we can cut huge swathes of expensive bureaucracy and therefore allow frontline services to continue unscathed. Our measures to deal with the deficit include cutting the number of quangos and stopping tax credits to those earning over £50,000. We need to bring our national debt back under control and reduce the current £178 billion annual deficit.

Closer to home, in a few years when UCL students are attempting to get on the housing ladder the Conservatives will be pulling 9 out of 10 homes out of stamp duty – a move that will help create both a stake-holder Britain and help debt-laden graduates get onto the property ladder. Similarly, we will encourage the creation of new jobs by abolishing all tax on jobs created by new companies for two years. This will not only provide more employment but will also encourage entrepreneurship and the creation of wealth.

And it’s not just our policies that have changed. Conservative activism has also changed radically in recent years. Instead of using stale campaigning methods our party has been engaged in new and exciting ways of reaching out to the electorate. One of our most important projects is that of Social Action days when Conservative Future and PPCs across the country take action from cleaning up litter strewn streets to mentoring the most disadvantaged children in society. This is our new Party.

In conclusion, our party no longer speaks solely to lifetime Conservative voters. Instead, we want more people who have never voted Tory before to look at our policies and realize that we are the best choice for Britain. With a huge deficit, a broken society, rotting education systems and a confused government I firmly believe that it is time for change. It’s time to vote Conservative. Oh and by the way, we also love the NHS.

In the run up to the General Election there have been all sorts of different ways that the various parties have tried to get our attention and persuade us to vote for them. Until the most original ideas have been spoof ones created by party members like the ‘Cameron Girls’. During the campaigning I have seen posters, videos and billboards but I didn’t see an anthemn for any of the parties until now. Continuing where the ‘Cameron Girls’ left off a group called ‘Nu Brand’ have produced an anthemn for the Conservative party.
