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!
