David "Hug A Husky" Cameron has rounded off the conference season with an off the cuff speech, rallying the party faithful to fight a general election that, if held today, he would most likely lose. And what a speech it was. Generic, self-serving and leaving the faint aroma of freshly produced chunder in the air afterwards. It was a speech that only appears good when placed next to the turgid, lifeless crap spouted by our dear Prime Minister a week or so earlier.
Cameron's claim that his speech was off the cuff is insulting to the nation's intelligence. Everyone knows he will have spent every spare second in the past few months cramming for that speech. And it is ironic that his attempt to get away from the accusations of spin was a gimmick. Sure, he has cut down on the tree-hugging and sub-Toynbee wank but he still hasn't come up with any real policies, and he has yet to make his case for being the rightful incumbent of Number 10. His sell is still "I'm not Gordon". Undeniably true, but it doesn't make him any less of a total cunt in his own right.
As for the election, I still believe Brown won't call it. He is too afraid of losing the election (unlikely but could happen) and being remembered as the six month Prime Minister. The irony is, of course, the longer he waits the more certain it becomes that he will lose. And he will be remembered as the Prime Minister who didn't have the balls to win.
I despise the pair of them - totally and utterly. Brown more so than Cameron, but I wouldn't piss on either of them if they were on fire.
