1 2 3 4 what the hell are we fighting for...
A simple google will tell you that "During the period 2002/03 to 2004/05, two out of five children in London lived below the poverty threshold after housing costs have been met. This amounts to over 600,000 children. Based on this definition, more than half of the children in Inner London lived in poverty."
And what do the youth wing of the next government do?
"As part of the
So if you fancy meeting some endangered ducks and getting to grips with some conservation work at the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust in Barnes - you know where we are. 20th of September. Richmond. National Conservative Future Social Action Day. For more details and regular updates, please sign up to the facebook event page."
This is a fucking joke right? Zac Goldsmith
TB is really pissed. This bollocks has to stop.
This might have been a good idea 2 years ago, but not when the economy is such a mess and people are struggling to heat their own houses.
The time could be better spent campaigning, or why not have a social action project that helps people to put lagging in their lofts... topical and the right message.
I have no idea what the student/not breakdown is on these things, but many of those of us paying taxes take the view that we do quite enough "social action" already.
And do what with the kids give them hand outs?
Richard you suggest fitting lagging? first of all if they cant afford lagging themselves who would pay, and surely it requires certain failsafes etc.
Isnt this story even if meant to be amusing actually quite insulting an patronising. You'll find that there are models out there with intelligence and make money unlike students who go to uni cant hack it and drop out.
seems your all over the shop pal... which story is it you are commenting on and what is it you are sweating about?
what it comes down to is whether you are pro-duck or pro-human.
its rare that I will defend social action, I make it rather clear I believe in campaigning and little else (and have no wish to pick up litter) but for once TB you have it wrong.
There is meant to be a lot more on the 20th going ahead aside ducks that will have a far greater impact on the area and perhaps find out what those are before putting it down...
On another note - COME TO GUILDFORD!!!!!!!!! NATIONAL CAMPAIGN DAY. 20TH SEPTEMBER. TARGET SEAT. Please....xxx
It doesn't matter if there is anything else going on when the entire advertising needs of CF are focused on a few bloody ducks who if they lived anywhere else but richmond would probably be in a pancake by now. how are we to know what these other mystical projects are when the entire party drop everything they are doing cause the rich bloke is saving the planet.
yet if kids born on sink estates and into miserable poverty fueled lives were give a bit of bloody attention the benifits would be immense. doubt you'll hear much thanks from the ducks and they sure as hell cant vote. what is the best that will come of this.. a duck will live to quack another day??
we are about to form the next government, we shouldnt be fannying about building goat pens and smoothing feathers.
TB would fully support the social action projects that look at the genuine problems in our society and how we can help those most in need but TB cannot support sucking up to ZG and his barmy army of green warriors as they slowly save the planet one newt at a time.
its bollocks and its a waste of time.
Hope to see you at WHF then, yes TB?
Yep, spent the day in B'ham today... count TB in.
WHF and the like - YES (people)
Richmond WWF - NO (animals/dinner)
There are many projects going on in Richmond on the 20th. Only one of which will involve ducks or animals. I'll make sure you are kept as far away from the ducks as possible. See you there :) Don't forget to pack the wellingtons - maybe you can go to bear factory and get some there? Or maybe thieve some from Paddington bear?
How about we social action the ducks into becoming pancakes? We could feed them to impoverished kids. God I'm hungry.
me too... half pissed as well.
will TB be seeing his two favourite CF lasses at the disraeli club thing tomorrow?
"lasses"? Thats a bit of a scottish twang you got there TB...
ah my sweet bonnie lass...
I may be mistaken TB but did you and I perhaps meet one time up in Scotland? At a dinner? Over haggis, neeps, tatties and gossip? Oh and that white chocolate cheesecake mousse thing. Haha... one camera! *sigh* memories!
was that the night you gave jj hickies?
Oui. It was. How nice of you to remember. The very esteemed David Harris took great delight in explaining it to everyone. That was good cheesecake... Haha, remember a certain drunken politicians toast to st andrew... went on.... and on..... and on.... and on... and a certain young man, his name escapes me, doing impressions of what it is like to be on the phone with one of the ex chairman of CF. Happy days you old bear!
yeah that dude doing those impressions of conversations with Vaughnie was hilarious...
so where did you end up staying that night?
With my good friends David Harris and Bess Rhodes. Nice try darling... ;)
not what TB heard...
surely you joined the 6am Marks and Spencer posse?
Haha, the 6am marks and spencers posse will never die. Tobias is moving to London in March where we shall start it up all over again. You may join us for the banter of the good old times.
Scotland eats too
see you tomorrow?
Alas no. I am packing for moving 2moz. Will be living in London from Saturday though so see you around. x
I must say I'm not quite sure I want to be one of your "favourite lasses" my dear. But yes, I am going x
Sweet how you two made up so quickly...
This flirting has got to STOP!
I think I hust hurled!
