With our dismal crew of politicians no longer able to deal with real politics, we asserted recently, the election campaign becomes a beauty contest. How true that turns out to be, with The Sunday Telegraph news pages devoted to a fashion commentary on the garb of our would-be leader.

It really is pretty dismal, isn't it, when all he has to do as a genuine conservative is to give people real & reliable hope that he & his party will put things right economically as quickly & as bearably as is possible, & be as effectively nationalist as is required - an obvious inevitability, & what the electorate clamour for, after this long period (13 years) of Labour misrule. Instead all he can offer is this:

He said the Tories had to convince voters that the "change that we offer is real change".

And he's got 40 days and 40 nights to do it! Sounds a bit biblical ... he'd be better off disappearing into the wilderness and re-emerging on election day.

This is the sort of sterile, vapid content that you used to see in middle-order women's magazines, as they trilled about the latest outfits of persons in the news, but such trivia is now elevated to the main pages of a national newspaper.


Sadly, women are important. Newspaper adverts are pitched at women because men never click on them. Thus, newspaper articles have increasingly been pitched at women, because they need to sell adverts - men never click on the adverts. Meanwhile, politicians pitch their "sell" at women because women are more likely than men to have their minds swayed by feelings and relationships, rather than data and the mechanics of governance - which men understand better (and don't like what they see). The feminisation of politics is an attempt by those in power to maintain the broken system by appealing to women.

Great comment, twl. Yes, it does make sense for the claque to involve women in the great decisions of state. Women allowed themselves to be used by communists operating under the guise of feminists. They have a lot to answer for.

I don't think even the women are buying it ... and it is a bit patronising ... or something ... to suggest that the majority of women are any different in their response to this poseur.

The difference in voting behaviour of men and women, and their political interests, is well established. Women are more likely to vote for welfare and large state bureaucracy, and find political trivia more interesting to who they vote for than men. That doesn't mean women shouldn't have the vote. But a couple of Margaret Thatcher outliers doesn't significantly move the statistical mean, either.

Accidentally repeated post.

I'll take the opportunity to add that you could engage women better in the "right" cause with an increased focus on Christianity and on ethnicity, which women interpret as "the family."

He can have the "forty days and forty nights" but does he really have to reappear after that? I suspect that most would be glad to see no more of the idiot.

He has to come back to submit his resignation. We would expect him to do that in person.

Didn't it rain on Noah for 40 days?
Is Cameron really going to be that wet for the next 40 days?

' he'd be better off disappearing into the wilderness and re-emerging on election day.'

You could leave out the second half of that remark!

Women are targetted by ideologies which would destroy us because they are the weakest link. A prime example is how the East German spy services targetted women working for the west German government. It worked extremely well and that cannot be disputed.
The threat de nos jours is the miscegenation of whites with non-whites to produce the mongrel race that Jack Straw calls us - except Labour really does want to do this. Look at how often the theme of white woman / black man appears, and it is always presented positively even though the rate of rape by black men in the US and increasingly in the UK is shockingly high.

I would suggest that the emergence of girlie-boys such as Cameron are the immediate threat. When we need a masculine leader (of either sex - viz Thatch) we get this wimp.

I think you're totally underestimating women, perhaps you see all women as clones of Harpicperson, not true. I can tell you that I don't know any women that favours welfare & large state. Where welfare is concerned maybe you're thoughts are with all the young single mothers.
