Delingpole is terrific. Where he's wrong is to blame the Lib Dhims for holding Dave back:
And if you think the Conservative wets in my cabinet are a liability, imagine what it’s like having to govern with Liberal Democrats... That is why today I’m going to offer you a clear political choice. I’m scrapping the Coalition
And this from the Spec:
[Salvation will not] happen unless you ditch your coalition partners. The last thing a drowning man needs is a clutch of suicidal loons grabbing his legs and trying to pull him further under.
There is no coalition: Dave is indistinguishable from a Lib Dhim. (If there is a coalition, it's intra-Tory.) So, "governing" without the LDs would be the same as now. An election that Dave won would change nothing.
From May 2010 we get this:
David Cameron used the coalition talks with Nick Clegg as an excuse to ditch ‘daft’ Tory policies he secretly wanted to get rid of all along - such as scrapping inheritance tax and getting rid of his pledge to rip up the Human Rights Act, it was claimed last night. The leader of Mr Clegg’s negotiating team, new Scottish Secretary Danny Alexander, said his Conservative counterparts, led by William Hague and George Osborne, produced a list of Mr Cameron’s manifesto pledges and invited the Lib Dems to strike them out. And Mr Cameron’s controversial policy guru Steve Hilton was reportedly delighted that the coalition had enabled Mr Cameron to ‘bury the Tory Right-wing’... The disclosure of just how easily – and willingly – the Conservatives surrendered key commitments to Mr Clegg threatens to spark a backlash against the shotgun wedding between the Tories and the Lib Dems.
A shocked Mr Alexander told Lib Dem MPs: ‘The Tories are ditching policies faster than they can list them. They pointed to them and said, “That can go, that can go.” We thought, “If they are offering up all this, is there anything they will not do?”’
Ditching the Lib Dhims will change nothing, except give Dave fewer opportunities to blame another party for his own EUthanasia and green bollocks.
Afterthought: by the time of the next election, the Conservative Party will not have won a general election for over 20 years.
