Today, I will give this cast-iron guarantee: If I become PM, a Conservative government will hold a referendum on any EU treaty that emerges from these negotiations.
I will believe it when I see it. Cameron is the reason I have recently left the Conservative party. He has taken my fine political home and smashed it down with a wrecking ball and said that I should be happy to live in the ramshackle hovel he has replaced it with. It might look reasonably tidy from the outside, but inside it is cold, dark and threadbare. It has become a depressing place.
He talks about localism while forcing through changes that increase centralism. He rails against discrimination while implementing candidate shortlists that exlude half the population. He talks about cutting public spending while criticising any cost reduction measure that the current shower of a government proposes. Cameron is against Labour and for winning. He puts his own narrow interests before those of voters and the country.
I want a leader - of party and country - who demonstrates integrity, not expediency. But I don't have one. Election day will be quiet and relaxing because I have no one to vote for any more. When it comes to scrutinising Cameron's record as leader, perhaps it is the Conservative membership that should not let matters rest there.
