Cameron To Clarify Promises

Cameronocchio

If you believe anything we say you must be stupid

Chicken Dave is to clarify the host of Con promises made during the last two months.

He will say, “My Party has made a host of attractive uncosted promises during the last two months as we have attempted to clone policies from the Ukip independently audited manifesto. Unlike Ukip, my Party will not sink to making honest statements because its all about winning votes by lies and deceptions for Tories. Voters can be assured that every promise is a firm cast iron cledge and we will be unable to remember any of these cledges if we win enough seats to form a Government. However, if we fail to form a Government, we will be able to claim in the next General Election in 2016 that we would have done a better job than the Labour/Scottish Nazi Party/ LibDem/ Greens/Plaid/IRA Sinn Fein/Monster Raving Loonie Coalition”.
