Here’s fun. Let’s let kittysjones explain:
I felt that this post was very worth preserving from Conservativehome, since it is a signed contract between the Conservatives and UK citizens, the insincerity of which is very evident four years on from when it was written. I took the liberty of converting the PDF into JPEG digital images, to preserve an exact copy of the contract, just in case the Tories decide to delete the original – well they do have form, after all. (See: Some of the promises the Tories are trying to delete from the internet and Lynton Crosby’s staff deleted valid criticism from Wikipedia, for example.)
“So this is our contract with you. I want you to read it and – if we win the election – use it to hold us to account. If we don’t deliver our side of the bargain, vote us out in five years’ time.”
Signed D. Cameron
Right. Below you’ll find kittysjones’ copy of the contract. Have a good read through it; there are a few bitter belly-laughs in there that, with hindsight, you’ll need to get through before getting down to the serious business, which is to go through and pick out the lies, half-truths… any part that deviates from what has in fact been enacted since. When you’ve dug out your nuggets of naughtiness and pearls of pottiness, please send them in as comments.
Perhaps we might publish the result, in printable leaflet form…
