The 2015 Conservative Party Manifesto Lies, Broken Promises and Missing Policy

Cameron says in a speech…“A manifesto shouldn’t be a wish-list; it should be a checklist. And that’s why, since the election, we haven’t been taking off in in a new direction, but marking off the commitments we made”

How do you mark off the following? They’ve been altered in some way since May 2015. They’ve…..

been delayed……(Care home charges cap)

been changed……(Benefit cap)

been increased…….(Freeze on benefits)

So they can’t be “marking off the commitments” they made, because many of them don’t exist as promised to the electorate!

Lie 1: Rail improvements scrapped/”paused”

Lie2: The Benefit Cap

Lie 3: 30 hrs Childcare

Lie 4: Two yr freeze on benefits

Lie 5: We will help keep Council Tax low

Lie 6: We will make motoring greener

Lie 7: We will cap charges for residential social care from April 2016

Lie 8: Labour’s Great Recession

Lie 9: £20bn of departmental savings not £13bn 

Lie 10: No cut to child benefit

Lie 11: No increase in National Insurance

Lie 12: Support to working families

Lie 13: 18 week target

Not in the Queen’s speech: Three days volunteer leave

Missing from the Manifesto: Maintenance Grants scrapped

Missing from the Manifesto: Higher Tuition Fees

Missing from the Manifesto: Housing Benefit scrapped for 18-21 yr olds

    quite agree with all of the above Mike.
    these are the sort of things Corbyn should be ripping the tories apart on in Parliament.

  2. Mr.Angry

    Quite scary how can he stand in the HOC and bleat on about the growing economy the man is nothing more than a mouthy car salesman.

    Great blog one tends to forgot over time just evil they really are until one is reminded of what has been pointed out here.

    As MB has written yes Corbyn & Co should using this as ammunition against these liars.

    Last time in 2010 Cameron broke 10 of his 12 “pledges to the nation” he wasn’t trustworthy then and has proven he cannot be trusted AT ALL. Now at least, a few more million know the truth of his lies to them. They won’t be voting Tory in 2020 (and probably not Labour either the way it’s been behaving) So I guess Greens will get a lot of votes.
