Torygraph journalists in despair as Miliband heads towards Number 10

Yesterday the Torygraph’s chief political correspondent was wetting his expensive designer knickers over the fact that the laughable Ed Miliband looks set to win the 2015 General Election. “How was it possible,” moaned the journalist, “that millions of people could vote for a party which had wrecked the British economy and been totally discredited?”

In the comments section, hundreds of Torygraph readers took the time to explain why Cameron couldn’t win the last election and certainly won’t win the next one. One reader made some interesting philosophical comments about why Western democracies which bribed voters with their own money will always be bound to fail and go bankrupt:

Alexander Fraser Tytler (1747-1813), ‘A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the Public Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by dictatorship’.

Alexis de Tocqueville observed: ‘The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.’

The above explains why, it is the people who are ‘rational’ by voting for those who offer them the most. The opposition (Labour) will offer the most and voters will be bribed by their own greed, with their own money, which will be paid back later, by less and less services, more and more confiscations (taxes), and by poorer standards of living for their own children whom they gladly sold for short term gain

But most vented their outrage at how little Cameron had achieved and how he lost the opportunity to save Britain from its own self-destruction:

“It’s really quite simple, Cameron has absolutely nothing in common with voters outside of London. He had a golden opportunity to finish Labour once and for all. Immigration, Europe and Law and Order have been the biggest issues for the electorate over the last 30 years and in opposition he said the right things( cast iron guarantee anybody) but he has failed miserably. He needs to kick out all illegals, say no to Europe on the entry of the Romanians and Turks and start and repatriate powers and be tough on crime…in other words the decisions that take guts and bravery, forcing through gay marriage, committing to foreign aid and a referendum on Scotland was weak and pathetic.

How one man given such a wonderful opportunity to put things right has totally f*cked up and made labour electable again beggars belief….but then again do any of these millionaire political class career politicians really care about Britain?”

Having read through quite a few comments, I’ll try to summaries Cameron’s “achievements”

    My wife, who is actually quite intelligent (usually) was quite shocked when many years ago I told her that child allowance was a total con and a waste of money. She saw it as some kind of gift from a benevolent government. She spent the money on treats for the kids. I did try to explain that for every £10 they “gave” her they were probably snatching £20 from me. Somehow she didn’t see the logic. Just like the bulk of the electorate, easily conned. I’ve been conned too. Historically, I’ve voted conservative, under the misguided belief that they were the party of low taxes, small government, self reliance etc etc. What a mug I’ve been. Never again, not even to keep the two Eds out.
