Thanks to Sturgeon, Cameron won

May 11, 2015 by

By Holly Hamilton-Bleakley, The Conservative Woman: David Cameron is the first Conservative Prime Minister since Margaret Thatcher to win two consecutive General Elections.  The man does not deserve that honour.  In fact, he has been so un-conservative that he completely alienated the grassroots of the party, to the point that they felt that had no voice whatsoever.  Indeed, I dare say that the insufferable antics of the Cameron-Osborne  duo were a major factor in the founding of this...

The End of Democracy?

May 8, 2015 by

By Ian Paul, Psephizo: What is the end, the goal of democracy? It is to allow the people to hold to account those who exercise power over them. In our sort of representative democracy it does not mean that politicians simply do what the people vote for.

What this Tory victory means for us social conservatives

May 8, 2015 by

By Laura Perrins, The Conservative Woman: […]  It looks like the Conservatives can govern alone with a spectacular and enjoyable defeat for the Liberal Democrats. What can we take from this victory for the Conservative Party? I am no fan of the ultra-liberal Tory social agenda but we must rejoice at the following: Labour are not in power.

Sign Petition in support of ex-gays here. By Janet Boynes, Charisma News: I do not need to say much to convince you that our religious freedoms are under fire. Around the world, men, women and children alike are being murdered for their faith. Although we people of faith in America are not yet being physically attacked in large numbers, there is a bully who would like to silence what we believe. For years, the president of the United States has sat down with those in the LGBTQ community but...

A request to David Cameron for ‘conscience clauses’

May 5, 2015 by

From Grassroots Conservatives: A letter sent recently to two national newspapers: Sir, Ed Miliband, an avowed atheist, has pledged to Churches to investigate the protection of freedom of religion following a spate of high profile cases. UKIP has promised: “We will extend the legal concept of ‘reasonable accommodation’ to give protection in law to those expressing a religious conscience in the workplace on this issue.” David Cameron has spoken before of his respect for the Bible and his own...
