THE CONSERVATIVE LIAR FLYER – GENERAL ELECTION 2010
Conservative Strategy: Characterise Brown as a ‘bogey man’.
Flyer claim 1: “A HUNG PARLIAMENT WOULD MEAN 5 MORE YEARS OF
Observation: The hung Parliament, in the event, precipitated Brown’s departure from No 10. This was the precise opposite of the Liar flyer assertion.
Flyer claim 2: “The only way to make sure we don’t have 5 more years of Gordon Brown is to vote Conservative.”
Observation: This requires the ‘fool/knave’ interpretation of the word “only”.
Flyer claim 3: “Brown to stay as PM in hung parliament” (ex Guardian)
Observation: The Guardian is not known as infallible. No change there!
Flyer claim 4: “The choice at this election: 5 more years of Gordon Brown or Change with the Conservatives.”
Observation: Other choices were available.
Flyer claim 5: “The Conservatives must win here to stop another five years of Gordon Brown.”
Observation: In a number of constituencies, where this message was promulgated, the Conservatives did not win. Further, they did not win in the country as a whole. But Labour were too reduced to form a coalition; Brown departed. A Double Whammy?
Flyer claim 6: “It’s that simple: a cross in the box for any other party is a cross in the box for Gordon Brown.” (Signed: David Cameron – ‘personal message’)
Observation: It’s this simple: that is a fatuous, false claim by David Cameron, who we must endure, as PM, for 5 YEARS. All we changed was one bogey for another! The Cameron Conservatives are – thus far – immune from ‘democratic’ challenge.�
Coalition did not deliver integrity.
