Two messages to Conservative supporters from the party:

A double message today, first from the Conservative party's director of campaigning, Darren Mott, and from the party chairman Patrick McLoughlin MP.

From Darren Mott:

"On Wednesday at 5pm I’m meeting the Party Chairman to set our campaigning priorities for the rest of 2016 and into next year’s elections.

We have some tough decisions to make. By donating before 5pm, we can reach more people across Britain with our plan to build a country that works for everyone: but we need you.
You can help us stop Labour.
Donate today and help us build that better Britain

Thank you for your support.
Darren Mott
Director of Campaigning The Conservative Party

And from Party Chairman Patrick McLoughlin:

Official figures show that in the last quarter the Labour Party raised more money to fund their campaigns than the Conservative Party. The unions helped deliver this by giving over £3 million.
That means the Labour Party can send more letters, distribute more leaflets and talk to more people online about their plans to:
  • Raise taxes on you and other working people
  • Add billions to the deficit with unfunded spending promises
  • Make it easier for their union paymasters to strike and disrupt people's lives

Thank you,


Promoted by Alan Mabbutt on behalf of the Conservative Party, both at 4 Matthew Parker Street, London, SW1H 9HQ

Oh, how nice.


"Please send us some more of your hard earned money, so we can dictate to the plebs how much more they WILL send the government, without ever thinking to ask them."

never once I notice is this considered.

Demand 5.

No taxation or spending without consent:
No tax, charge or levy shall be imposed, nor any public spending authorised, nor any sum borrowed by any national or local government except with the express approval the majority of the people, renewed annually on presentation of a budget which shall first have been approved by their respective legislatures;

Still working to build a country that works for everyone.

Not entirely fair, Jim - it's an appeal for voluntary contributions of money to the campaign by the party that, if re-elected, wants to do LESS dictating that ordinary taxpayers will be forced to cough up money to the government in the form of higher taxes.

Totally accept the point that parties often fail to pay enough attention to the fact that there is no such thing as public money, it has all been extorted from taxpayers.

Its still pretty clear to me though,

If we always do as we have always done, then we will always get, what we've always got.

that is why its time to change things
