Tory activists joining UKIP and ex Archbishop accuses David Cameron of marginalising Christians, meltdown at Tory HQ!
By Shetlandman-The Conservative party is suffering from activists leaving the party due to its pro-same sex marriage along with the anger in the English Shires over the high-speed London to Birmingham train link.
Rank and file Tories who worked hard to get Cameron elected are left in disbelief over the way the party is heading.
There has been a movement of traditional Conservative voters and members either stating that they will no longer work for liberal leaning Cameron and now are inactive or have left the party and joined UKIP, the reserve Tory party.
Another blow to the shire Tory machine is that of Deputy Leader of Horsham District Council in West Sussex.
Senior and long-time member Councillor Roger Arthur has according to press reports left the Tories and joined the reserve Tory party, UKIP. Mr Arthur, in counties like West Sussex, represents very much the traditional base Tory vote and his defection will send growing fear to party HQ of a meltdown of Tory votes in Southern England.
More bad news for Cameron was the recent poll of Church of England Sunday attendee’s. The poll revealed that 53% of those who voted Tory at the last election have said they will not support them at the next election.
It would seem that David Cameron has become a liability when it comes to the Tories core voter.
Now we read that the ex-Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Cary has launched a solid punch at Cameron alleging him of marginalising Christians at the expense of others.
He said it was a “bit rich” for the prime minister to tell religious leaders to oppose secularisation. He accused the government of appearing to be “aiding and abetting” aggressive secularisation and that Cameron had done more than any other recent politician to increase Christian anxieties.
We in Scottish BNP would agree with Lord Carey. Some may feel that our Prime Minister seems more interested in pandering to the mass scale migrant population and their religious views.
Lord Carey stated concerning a recent ComRes poll “more than two thirds of Christians feel that they are a part of a “persecuted minority.
Their fears may be exaggerated because few in the UK are actually persecuted, but the prime minister has done more than any other recent political leader to feed these anxieties.”
He added that Mr Cameron “seems to have forgotten in spite of his oft-repeated support for the right of Christians to wear a cross that lawyers acting for the coalition argued only months ago in the Strasbourg court that those sacked for wearing a cross against their employer’s wishes should simply get another job.”
It certainly is unheard off for such a prominent member of the clergy to attack a Prime Minister in such a way. The problem is that David Cameron, like The Angel of Poverty Ian Duncan-Smith have simply lost any real understanding of what their base supporters actually desire.
It would appear that recent decisions on same-sex marriage, high speed rail links, Cameron’s utter bluff on an EU exit vote and the latest pathetic attempt to look tough on immigration has backfired.
Christians in Britain have every right to feel alienated by a regime that worries how other immigrant based religions feel, rather from their own ethnic support.
It is no wonder that the Tories are a fair bet for this May to lose hundreds of not more seats in the English and Welsh council elections.
The BNP and UKIP can expect to benefit from the anti-Tory vote.
