A New Low for Cameron
I watched Cameron’s speech at the close of the Conservative Party conference, yesterday. We all know he talks a good game and he did not disappoint. He stood there at the end of his show, like a Messiah, descended from his penthouse apartment to deliver us all.
If I had been on an expedition to the South Pole for the last few years and returned today to catch his speech, I would be justified in thinking that these were the most prosperous, the most harmonious, the most positive times this country had ever experienced. I would certainly be surprised to find out that a month ago there were riots across the country, that prison population and unemployment were reaching highs we have not experienced for decades and that the economy has ground to a halt under the incompetent stewardship of this illegitimate government.
But I shall not waste my time with the pile of horse-manure that was his dishonest speech. They say, a picture is worth a thousand words and I found myself fascinated by some of the pictures. The camera often drifted onto Samantha Cameron – as their PR people would have expected it to – especially during the “softer” sections of his speech. Whenever adoption, children’s wards, babies dying in Africa, gay marriage were mentioned – up popped the lovely Sam, again and again.
And look, who is this friendly black chap to her right?
A lovely Asian-looking woman sitting just behind her.
Would you believe it? Here is an older-looking black lady in the background.
And a handsome suited black gentleman on her left side.
Now, now! I know what you’re thinking, but how could you be so jaded as to think these people were carefully arranged? I bet you the Tories have genuinely diversified. I bet you this entire hall was packed with ethnic minorities.
And there you have it. Everything you need to know about the cynical, manipulative, contemptuous, misanthropic machine that is the Conservative Party with little need for words.
Believe nothing they say. Instead, open your eyes and look for yourself.
