What If?
Posted Sunday, 10 May 2009 at 13:40

 I know it’s all about expenses, but forgive me.


What if David Cameron called for a vote of no confidence in Brown during the Post Office vote? Would the Lib Dem’s and other minority parties vote with us? Would the 56 Labour rebels? Would the Blairites? Would that mean we would win and force a general election?


If the Blairites and Labour rebels didn’t vote with us and voted for Brown this would mean that they would in effect be voting to keep Brown for the duration.


Seems like that’s a win win for us.


Is that what David really means when he says he’s “pulling the plug on Brown”?

I would love to think that the Conservatives could get rid of this Government but turkeys, given a choice don't vote for Christmas as it would mean so many ministers and labour backbench MPs not getting an extra year's worth of salary

I think it time that Cameron pulled the No Confidence. Labour is dead at the next election, this Nation will never trust them again. But the Conservatives clearly have to go to the Right and become Anti-Abortion, Anti- Gay Marriage, Anti Europe, Pro War on Terror. Thats the Social Change we need in this country.

What if they lost the vote? Would that give Brown an indirect mandate? May I humbly suggest that Conservatives who have troughed it, come clean about their expenses, pay the monies back and offer no excuses - only contrition. This will then compare favourably to Labour MPs who will NEVER do so. The public will be watching all the while and will note the difference between Labour and Conservative management styles. Yes, the process will be painful, but Tories will have lanced the boil. If enough of the public and the opposition MPs report Labour MPs to the serious fraud office or police, for investigation and should enough of them be investigated, we can trigger elections in the relevant constituencies. Should 50 Labour MPs be investigated, and ousted as MPs, Cameron can then table a motion of no confidence and we can get these vile people out of government.

I am astonished that anyone could think that the social change we need in this country is "Anti-Gay Marriage"...what an astounding piece of nonsense!

A couple of us suggested this on John Redwood's Blog a few weeks ago(when we thought this government couldn't sink any lower)but he then suggested the vote would be lost. As I look at it,I have a local MP who is prepared to do her utmost for her constituents, why can't her Party do the same for the country and force a vote.No shame in trying and then losing. Failing that perhaps the Queen has the power to dissolve this shameful government before this once great country goes completely down the pan.

Nadine, This is exactly what the public are demanding. We want this utterly corrupt and busted government out. PS. Mr B. can't be serious? I'm a reactionary 50 year old, miserable old git but apart from wanting the long overdue referendum on EU the other stuff you propose is nonsense. You sound like George Bush's Grandad.

..I know it's all about expenses, but.....I seem to remember when the Abortion debate was in full swing you made a formal complaint connected with EMILY'S LIST which I believe was thrown out. I can't help but noticing that some of the main players the Telegraph have named in their expenses investigation are part of that EMILY'S LIST, namely, Jaqui Smith,Barbara Follet, Caroline Flint and Margaret Moran. The words comeuppance and just deserts naughtily spring to mind.

The trouble is that there is no one left to vote for. The Tories and Lib Dems are just as bad as Labour. Do we really want the Tories as the "least worst" option? Difficult to know what to do. I suppose you could ban (something MP's are keen on when it comes to us) all sitting MP's from seeking re-election and start afresh. None of that will happen and we're just going to be left with another version of the same sleazy crooks running the show.

The LibDums wouldn't vote for Christmas if it was Christmas Day. As to the 56 rebels I'd trust them about as far as I could spit through a brick wall. If you really want the country to get behind you, then Cameron has to move to the right. This middle of the road crap gets you nowhere fast. Return to Conservative values...that's what will win you votes.

What we actually need is not another lurch to the right or swing to the left we need an END to the ludicrous left/right class based politics of the last century. We need a New Party that represents the majority of the working women and men of this country, that respects the contribution that our seniors have made and cares for them in their old age and a society that helps those that REALLY need it. Small business owners, the self employed and hard working people are what makes England the place that it should be. Corrupt, venal, troughing, class war fighting undemocratic politicians are what got us where we are now.

I thought you were going to support the government in the Post Office vote. I don't think you should but that is what Cameron and Clarke have said. I'm not convinced your party leadership really wants a general election before May next year.

Go talk to Dave Nadine. A brilliant idea and would stop AJ.

Nadine, Dave needs to fire anyone with dubious expense claims - and hire fresh blood. If he does not, the troughers will dog his premiership at every awkward turn. This is a leadership issue. McMental dodged it. Cameron can capitalise on it. Non-dodgy MPs should support such a measure.

Nadine, It will not happen! As CB says, turkeys don't vote for Christmas and let us be realistic, this lot are not going to leave the trough of their own volition are they? I worked for over fifty years and paid all my taxes, for what? To have my money and my country taken away from me by an out of touch, arrogant, discriminatory, extremely nasty, money grasping bunch in Westminster and their fellow travellers. It is as though the responsible citizens and and those who genuinely need our help have been disenfranchised at the altar of greed and illegality. Neither of which are Conservative values. I used to look forward to the Conservatives rescuing this country, but changed my mind and bought a white flag. However, if you were to borrow Maggie's handbag, which my wife would like to see in use again, I feel sure you could make my flag redundant.Go on, get in there you know you want to! Any incoherence in this post is attributable to the small size of the comment box or my age. Either way to paraphrase gordon, "its not my fault guv".
