After over six months of uncertainty, the Conservatives finally have a new leader to contest what will most likely by another General Election defeat at the hands of the neo-Nazi New Labour party. I can not say that any of the candidates inspired me with any confidence in them. Choosing between the final two candidates was like choosing whether you wanted to die from either the AIDS or Ebola viruses. In the end, the party choose AIDS as at least scientists are closer to finding a cure for that disease than they are with Ebola.
"Tory Blair v2.0" David Cameron (Michael Portillo was the original Tory clone of Adolf Blair) has a better chance of reducing "Mr. Recession" Gordon Brown's parliamentary majority in 2009/10, whereas David "Alan B'Stard with SAS training" Davis would have done far more damage to the party than Michael Foot did to Labour as party leader. Davis would have only plunged the Tories further into the abyss. For the most part, Cameron does seem to be making the right noises and has promised to move the party back towards the centre ground. Unfortunately, his morals and character leave a lot to be desired. The party has already had at least two drug abusers lead it in the past (Eden and more understandably the elderly Churchill during his second and final term as Prime Minister), do we really need another?
