Profundity is not your strong point is it lemon

Don't understand your logic WW2 the Tory campaign only started today!

lemongrove Wed 06-Nov-19 08:56:45

There is nothing profound worth saying about your blanket bombings of threads with anti-Tory propaganda WWM2

Whitewavemark2 Wed 06-Nov-19 08:59:27

You read them though

lemongrove Wed 06-Nov-19 09:04:31

Just curious .....in case you say anything interesting ( nothing so far though.)

I'm not convinced that the Tory launch - which seems to consist of insulting people who died in a fire & comparing Labour's plans to mass murder - is entirely displaying the mastery of 21st century viral marketing that we were promised.

WW2 are you really basing your assumption on the tweets of Spiderman!!!?

Well, we will have more of the Nasty Party with it's anachronistic attitude to life in Britain, or the Reds.
So important to support the Lib Dems or the smaller Parties.

Common theme to Tory action today?
* refusal to publish report on Russia
* abusing civil service on costing Labour policy (yet refusing to cost their own)
* doctoring video of Keir
* Rees Mogg & Bridgen Grenfell comments

They just think they are above the rules/law/everyone else

Things are getting better for the Tory campaign launch. Kay Burley has just empty chaired the Tory Chairman James Cleverly who was in the Sky News building but then refused to do the interview.

I think that their proud record of 'achievements' so far will determine who votes for them. Is anyone else totally embarrassed by our government? What must the rest of the world think of us?

I doubt the rest of the world cares or is much interested Hetty having their own problems and many having corrupt governments.

So the Tories are corrupt are they? Well, Well.
James Cleverly is stressed out already!
I noticed his poor body language yesterday; very fed up.

Whitewavemark2 Wed 06-Nov-19 09:48:39

Cleverly couldn’t face another pounding from another tv interviewer.

So ran back to party HQ.

Not going well is it?

lemongrove Wed 06-Nov-19 09:53:23

It’s the first day .......are you going to comment every day fir five weeks WWM2?
Don’t answer that, I already know.😁

I think their message is supposed to be a positive one WW but rather like our own dear right-wing GNetters it gets lost in all the nastiness and you end up asking "what is the Tory message"? Are we actually expected to vote for name-calling?

I do hope today's front page spread, of the only PM ever to have a column in a daily newspaper, is the last or it's going to cost them a fortune against their election spending allowance -because it's not free publicity is it?

This morning, again just like our own dear right-wingers, he has really gone over the top with his outrageous journalistic hyperbole. Not a lot about the Tory message though - do you think they have got one?

Urmstongran Wed 06-Nov-19 10:22:05

See Boris is already trying to Court the over 80s voters this morning by doing a house call.

jura2 Wed 06-Nov-19 10:51:35

Not going well at all, for sure.

What they did to Keir's interview was base, dirty, fraud- wrong sad

ladymuck Wed 06-Nov-19 11:30:12

I think all the parties are going to struggle to win support. Recent events and behaviour have put all in a very poor light. There is no-one worthy of our trust.

Whitewavemark2 Wed 06-Nov-19 11:44:21

Did anyone see Kate Burley talking to an empty chair this morning that was supposed to contain Cleverly, who had fun back to HQ after the drubbing he got from other interviews this morning?

Burley went through all the questions she had intended to put to Cleverly.

It was brutal!!

Whitewavemark2 Wed 06-Nov-19 11:44:47

run as opposed to fun🙂
