Data suggests the most recent figure for empty Conservative promises was estimated to be around 273,000, while the last year the figure was below 100,000 was back in 1997. Ironically the pledge to reduce empty promises and wishful thinking – the difference between what it promises and what it actually delivers – was also in the 2010 and 2015 manifesto.
A young Conservative spokesman said: ‘Making promises like defending workers rights, funding the NHS and increasing social care budgets will soon become a thing of the past. Once we are in power there will no longer be a need to spout such nonsensical horseshit and we can get on with the job of being Tories’.
‘There is no actual deadline as yet – no fixed timetable – but once the election is over we intend dropping all promises….apart from the tax cuts and titles we have promised Tory donors….obvs’.
