Cameron's Call For A General Election Is A Cynical Ploy To Take The Heat Off His MPs

David Cameron knows that Labour, currently 20 points behind in the opinion polls, indeed any party in that situation in government, would not call an early election so he can give out his populist call for one (backed by his new friend Murdoch).

But there might be a hint of panic in Cameron's call. Nobody knows how much more revelations are going to damage the Tories. Over 12 months voters will have a lot of time to hear about their Tory MPs misdemenours - as Labour deselects its culprits, Cameron would have to confront a lot of his own MPs and constituency associations that don't want to lose their cushy positions.

Currently about 30% of Tory MPs have been implicated and about 15% of Labour MPs (see lists below) the Tories potentially should have more to lose by this, but the press have managed to make Labour seem the main culprits.

Can you imagine Julie Kirkbride and Nadine Dorries faced by a drug dealer claiming it was circumstances that led them into crime - they would give them short shrift and their right-wing response would be to hand out a long prison sentence.

But when these hypocritical Tories were caught with their own hands in the till suddenly 'it's the system that made us fill our pockets with taxpayers money'. But there are plenty of MPs (maybe the majority) who didn't make outrageous claims. By their own right-wing Tory judgement Nadine Dorries and Julie Kirkbride and all the other piggish MPs should be behind bars. Any party and party leader who defends Kirkbride as Cameron and the Tories have closing ranks around her, deserve no seats at all, let alone to be in government.

Amen to that I hear a lot of you saying. So why are so many of you still voting Tory and going to deliver them a landslide? For Tories to still be on around 40% in opinion polls, you obviously cannot bring yourselves to disown your party whatever the provocation - which is why our system, with most MPs in seats for life, is so crap.

Go and vote UKIP or something if you want a load of right-wingers (although they are a bunch of crooks as well). Better still vote Green (especially in these PR Euro elections on June 4th where every vote will count) if you want to slam the main parties. Currently 54% of voters are still backing Labour and Tory in the Euros and even more for Westminster. What is wrong with you all?

Cameron is making people think a general election is the answer to a rotten parliament, but replacing one lot of Tory and New Labour frauds with a new generation of even more Tory frauds is no answer.

Have you noticed how it is all the new Labour and Tory MPs we on the left really despise who seem to be the worst culprits? - new Labour MPs who fiddled (so far)-
