Conservative musings and comments.

Conservative Future

The American primaries and caucuses are happening right now in America, and for the past half a year or so we’ve heard non-stop how its “time for change” or, fancy a bit of “change you can believe in”? The problem with elections nowadays is that everybody is saying the same thing! What better example of this than in the UK, centralised politics leads to everyone stating they have a “vision” and need “time to deliver their promises”, quite frankly, sometimes I sit and think politics is getting a bit boring.

And now to make it worse, with the Conservative Future elections in full swing, how many more times am I going to hear “I wasn’t born a Conservative” or “I wasn’t brought up Conservative”, should I be sat here rejoicing in the fact that someone else made a conscious decision to join something they agree with?! If that is the best possible tactic to get voted for then there is worrying times ahead for us young Tories. The election in 2030 and we hear at every speech “I wasn’t born a Conservative”, we haven’t got a chance.

Change the tune, its like a broken record.

*And if anyone is interested in the votes that I have decided on, I am going to vote Matthew Richardson for the top job, and I’m largely undecided for the NME, until I hear someone say “I was born a Conservative, and I’ll always be a Conservative”. Or even just, “I want your vote so that I can…” – Come on, someone help me out here!

  1. Joseph,

    Great blog – wish I’d found it sooner. Whilst I can’t claim to have been ‘born a Conservative’ – I can tell you that I’ve been a Conservative for as long as I’ve been politically aware!

    Best,

    Christian

  2. Haha, i’m not saying that it’s a bad thing to not have been born a Torie, to be honest, I wasn’t (socialist mother!), but it just gets irritating when all people want you to vote them in on is the basis of “I wasn’t born Conservative”, it’s terrible! Why should that matter, really?
