    The Keighley Candidate for the Tories is being rinsed in the media for putting up Green and Red Signs as part of his campaigning.

    Sutton in Craven and Ilkley both went to the Green party in the local election and Labour took seats around Keighley so it's clear what he is doing.

    Tory candidate Robbie Moore uses red posters with no mention of Conservatives (telegraph.co.uk)

    4 Tories have take money from the loon that is Lawrence Fox and his reclaim party that even Andrew Bridgen thought was too loony for his own views.

    Andrea Jenkins, Recent Tory MP in Leeds has Nigel Farage all over her campaign literature.

    I mean when candidates who are standing for the party don't want to be associated with the Tories, you have to ask why should anyone want to vote for them?

    How can a party go from an 80 seat majority, completely spunk up the opportunity to make any meaningful change and then by all accounts look like they will be lucky to be the opposition. It's the football equivalent of Premier League to Non League in 5 years.

    It's simply the price you pay for ignoring your manifesto and treating the voters like sh1t

    They've been wanting rid of the hot seat for years, it's only Labour complete incompetence that saw the Tories keep getting given back the poisoned chalice.

    Just watching Dale Vince on Newsnight. Apart from he has 3 haircuts on one head, I'm sure he has just said we can get all the gas we need from grass!

    40,300 since Sunak said he would stop the boats

    The left just sit back and say nothing but then question why the country is fecked...

    Equivalent to :

    Eccles Greater Manchester [​IMG] North West 40,936 Great Yarmouth Norfolk [​IMG] East 40,883
    Herne Bay Kent [​IMG] South East 40,450
    Bishop's Stortford Hertfordshire [​IMG] East 40,089

    These figure are fairly insignificant compared to the 750k waved in by Sunak and Co in the last year.

    They have totally messed up but Farage's promise of net zero is fantasy aswell. Still he won't be in power so it doesn't really matter what he promises.

    At least Brexit is controlling our borders.....

    Just listened to John Caldwell, the founder of phones 4 U, and his comments about voting Labour after 51 years of voting Tory and his comments about how to move forward were bang on. On how we need to create wealth first on foremost and that just trying to tax the rich simply won't work as they'll just go elsewhere. His disdain for Sunak as a member of the cabinet is also spot on, the fact a guy not fit as chancellor got the top job in Westminster a damning indictment on a Government not fit for purpose for years.

    So last week we had the Tory party broadcast offering no policy info just rubbishing the £2094 labour tax figure.
    And then tonight we have the absolute cringe fest of Starmer walking through the Dales getting all teary eyed about his parents with Gary Neville.
    No really,Gary Neville.

    Do the media experts think that by putting Starmer with Neville they make him come across as having some sort of connection with the undecided people out there?

    A media studies student would have been laughed out of the classroom if they’d come up with that idea.

    Just needed a reach around at the end to make it the most awkward thing on telly this week.

    So another Tory candidate is being investigated for betting on the date of the election aswell as a member of the police who protects Sunak.

    It's just shitshow after shitshow as the sun sets on this administration. How government minister can stand up every morning on the media rounds and warn of the danger of a Labour government, when people like Matt Hancock and Liz Truss have been in positions of power is laughable. People like Hancock and Co should be being tried in court rather than making money on TV shows.

    As an update, the Tory Campaigns director took a leave of absence yesterday from CCHQ. If you are wondering why, then maybe a few dots can be linked together when you consider it's the Tory Campaigns director who puts together the campaign for a general election, he will be ready to go when the election is called and will be notified in advance of this happening. Oh and his wife is the candidate who put the bet on the date of the election....

    I don't think old Johnny boy will have a problem with illegals pitching tents near his Mayfair home, after his $85million restoration.
