I felt that this post was very worth preserving from Conservativehome, since it is a signed contract between the Conservatives and UK citizens, the insincerity of which is very evident four years on from when it was written. I took the liberty of converting the PDF into JPEG digital images, to preserve an exact copy of the contract, just in case the Tories decide to delete the original – well they do have form, after all. (See: Some of the promises the Tories are trying to delete from the internet and Lynton Crosby’s staff deleted valid criticism from Wikipedia, for example.)
“So this is our contract with you. I want you to read it and – if we win the election – use it to hold us to account. If we don’t deliver our side of the bargain, vote us out in five years’ time.”
Signed D. Cameron
Gordon Brown’s “economic incompetence” in the face of a global crisis caused mostly by US bankers, steered us out of recession by 2010, with no need for austerity measures. Furthermore, the Tories have borrowed more in just 3 years than Labour did in 13 and have not invested that money in public services. In fact the only people to have benefited from any investment at all this past 4 years are a few private companies that donate to the Conservative Party and a handful of millionaires.
Oh, and surely “incompetent” would include losing the Fitch and Moody triple A credit ratings, after promising to keep them … oh yes, that was Osborne, wasn’t it.
I could go on and address all of the other lies, but I know readers can see the enormous gap between the Tory pledges and the reality of four years of Conservative-led Government.
You cannot trust the Tories with the economy, or anything else for that matter. A glance at the pre-election empty promises and their bare-faced lies demonstrates this very well.
Vote them out, May 7th, 2015.
And vote Labour.
What Labour achieved, lest we forget

Hia 🙂 I just wanted you to know that two years ago we had a sort of fall out, but we made up. I want you to know you inspired me to get a degree in psychology. I am now in my second year and loving it and I wish that I will be even half as good as you then I will surely have succeeded. Thank you, big hug and cuddle. And thank you for opening my eyes to what was right in front of me x
Lovely to hear from you, David, and very happy to hear you are enjoying your degree 🙂 Big hug and cuddle to you, and whatever I did, it’s all down to you making the decision and loving your course. I wish you every deserved success, and hope that you continue to enjoy your study x

I seem to remember Newt Gingrich’s’ Contract with America’ circa 1994.
Seems the Tories just rehash Republican ‘back of the fag packet’ policies designed to be wishy washy and deflect the public gaze from the Tories real.agenda- self serving, making them and their already wealthy City banker friends even more wealthy!
Cameron ain’t foolin’ me with his airbrushed ‘I love the NHS’billboard posters…
Yep, very well said.
I thought of the similarity to New Gingrich’s Contract with America too, Krazyklaws. This confirms just how much of their policies the Tories have taken over from them. They should just get it over and done with, and simply call themselves Republic Party UK. But then, that would require honesty, which is one of the sterling virtues they lack.

Well, lets hope the last sentence come to pass: “You can vote us out in five years time.”

Not really much more to say on this. …. Despite the efforts of the Tory PR machine to spirit these things away, read on……..
Well that’s more like it – seeing what Labour actually want to do, and I’m loving it all. Would like to hear what he has to say about benefits, disabled and long term health benefits and the WCA, as well as PIP, ESA, etc.
I really hope that Labour do get into the next parliament as winners – I would love it to be a landslide but we have too many fools saying that they are going to vote UKIP, therefore wasting their votes. I don’t think that UKIP will get that many seats, but the SNP will and they would join Labour if needed.
How many people will also take Cameron and his goons to task for the last 4+ years, and how many will actually have the police waiting for them at the end of their term? I know I’ll be one of them making a police complaint about the deaths of citizens due to their policies and their absolute discrimination about the poor, the disabled and the elderly!

A more detailed rebuttal would be helpful
I’ve done that elsewhere, throughout the articles on this site. And continue to do so. See: https://kittysjones.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/conservative-negative-campaign-strategy-share-the-lies-and-win-a-prize/ for example.
I think people can see the gap between the pledges and reality for themselves. That’s why it was important to preserve this document, which has since been deleted from the Conservativehome site
