Some of the promises the Tories are trying to delete from the internet

All the election pledges the Tories made, have broken, and are now trying to airbrush out of history. It shows the Stalinist, Orwellian nature of the Tories and their attitude to history. So, whenever a government spokesman starts parroting some nonsense about what the government has done, just remember: it’s coming from the Ministry of Truth. And you are Winston Smith.

Politics and Insights


Some of the promises the Tories are trying to delete from the internet:

1. No cuts to front-line services.

2. “We have absolutely no plans to raise VAT”.

3. Cameron said “I wouldn’t means-test child benefit”.

4. “No more top-down reorganisations of the NHS”.

5. On Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA): “We don’t have any plans to get rid of them”.

6. Cameron on  Sure Start: “Yes we back Sure Start. It’s a disgrace that Gordon Brown has been trying to frighten people about this”.

7. On the Future Jobs Fund: “We have no plans to change it”.

8. Cameron on green taxes: “[They] need to go up”.

9. Osborne on bank bonuses: “Totally unacceptable”.

10. And finally, Cameron’s commentary on transparency in 2007: “It’s clear to me that political leaders will have to learn to let go. Let go of the information we have guarded so jealously”.

  1. Bring back immediately women's state pension at 60 / Loss of state pension for life from 2016 Says:

    The Tories breached a manifesto promise to get elected

    To set the date at which the state pension age starts to rise to 66, although it will not be sooner than 2016 for men and 2020 for women.

    They have broken this promise by accelerating the rise in the State Pension Age. Therefore, please ensure that Mr. Cameron & Mr.Clegg honour their word and reverse the State Pension Law.

    Even worse is to come leaving many women with nil money in old age forever.

    Within this petition are the working poor left with no state pension for life, men and women, who had part time jobs, which each were less than 14 hours / around £109 wages per week.

    Told if worked more hours, lost benefit, and could not live on low wages gained. Now lost being in welfare state nor can get a state pension, especially as those with less than 10 years NI contributions get no state pension forever.

    From 2016, there will be destitute and starving people 60 and over, with no money forever in old age.

    Why is Labour not making much of this please?

    If Labour gave a manifesto promise to:

    – Revoke Welfare Reform Act
    – revoke Pension Bill
    – revoke Flat Rate Pension
    – pay state pension at 60 lost to women since 2013 (lost 6 years of payout)
    – pay state pension at 65 lost to men (1 year lost payout)

    Then watch Labour gain a landslide victory in 2015.

    Instead politicians of all parties get the lost state pension money (vital food and fuel money to a great many) as an 11 per cent pay rise, whilst politicians kept the pension payout at 60 for women MPs from 2012 with the words ‘protected from reforms’ (source Library of House of Commons).
