It seems that every promise in the Tory manifesto is based on hearsay and
rumour about things that people don't like at the moment. From
air-conditioned tubes, thru to RIPA, to cheap petrol, it's
bandwagon-jumping. Even if you agree with some, it's unlikely you'll agree
with a majority.

I have yet to see a Conservative talk eloquently and knowledgably about the
subjects they're making promises on. Which is fucking scary. You sort of
have to admire their bravado though, in some ghoulish way.
