Politicians: Losing The Faith?

The Conservative Party say they will stand up for the ‘forgotten majority’. Michael Howard argues that there are many people who feel let down by Tony Blair, and who share the values of the Conservatives. In the foreword of the party’s election manifesto published this week, he promises to focus on restoring order, trying to lower taxes and returning power to the people.

It is a worrying fact when we can muster up no trust at all of the word of a politician. After years of spin and soundbites, yet no substance, from New Labour, it is so easy to lose trust or hope or faith. We must pray that Michael Howard does not join the list of reasons to distrust politicians.

Mark I struggle to belive that the tories will make any impact on the lost people as at the end of the day we have to remember in the general publics eye the conservatives represent stuck up toffs with their heads too far up their own backsides. It was interesting to see at the conference Micheal Howard held on the topic the so called activists we all o.a.p's. It is key that if the party is to progress he needs to capture the younger audience and this was proved in Kerrys election campagin that if you interest the younger generation they will vot eand this will be invaluable. At the mooment the toreis are fighting a lsot cause. They are playing an old fiddle and hampering on about Labour failing to meet standereds. Although this is true they need to be worried about the Lib. Dems. whose rise has been frightening.
