To think if you want to get rid of David Cameron, vote Leave.

Ken Clarke has said that "David Cameron won't last 30 seconds if the country votes leave".

That will plunge the Tories into civil war in the party. George will probably take over et voila!

George will never win an election. He has all the charisma of a blocked sink.

But then we might get Boris. shudders

It doesn't matter what mask someone wears, if they are an arsehole, then they stay an arsehole even if they put on a different mask. This also applies for whoever is the face of a political party.

People voting to leave based on a hatred of David Cameron are woefully misguided.

Or even worse, champagne socialist Corbyn confused

That is such a naive reason to vote to leave the EU. Vote to leave because you think it's the right thing to do then do so but do not vote because of your dislike for someone who isn't going to be around forever.

Champagne Socialist? Good grief.

Not really no. I think leaving the EU will.have effects that we just don't realise yet. In an already volotile ecomonic market could be diastrous. The price of Stirling against the Euro has already dropped significantly. (C.10%) would likely head towards 1:1.
I'm not much of a fan of Cameron, but I'll take him over plunging us into an unknown and uncertain future.

I'm a labour member, the last thing I want is a snap election. Corbyn is a liability.

GabiSolis Sat 16-Apr-16 11:46:28

Cameron is scum but then there is lots of scum in that party so I'm not sure anyone would be better.

I live in a Tory stronghold and I can tell you that they could put the biggest fuckwit up as their candidate and he or she would be voted in. A Tory monkey would win. So I don't necessarily agree that getting DC out and GO in would result in a lost election (if only).

GabiSolis Sat 16-Apr-16 11:48:14

I am a Labour member too ftr. Defo not a Corbyn-ite. Obviously better than any Tory, but still not an election winner IMO.

The EU is a really long term decision. It would be foolish to base your vote on short term personality politics.

TendonQueen Sat 16-Apr-16 11:51:16

I do want rid of David Cameron, but not to leave. And I don't want rid of him for George instead. Even in four years he can do an almighty amount more damage. Same applies to foppish Boris.

Brightnorthernlights Sat 16-Apr-16 11:51:18

The problem I'm having with the stay campaign is that it's argument is all 'might' & 'could happen'. The opposite being it might not happen and could not happen. Life is full of uncertainties and if the only reason to stay is a list of vague possibilities, which seem to be getting more extreme each day, then I'm afraid I haven't been won over yet.

roarfeckingroar Sat 16-Apr-16 11:51:38

I will be voting leave for other reasons but that would certainly be a bonus.

I agree with this ohmywhatamisaying.

coffeeisnectar Sat 16-Apr-16 11:52:57

Shiny Dave? Odious George? Batshit Boris?

Are any of them better options?

TendonQueen Sat 16-Apr-16 11:53:24

I'm a Labour voter but not a Corbyn fan too, and whatever else could be said about him it doesn't include 'champagne socialist'! Even the Tories wouldn't try to make that stick! confused

ForalltheSaints Sat 16-Apr-16 11:56:40

Totally the wrong reason to vote Leave if you want to.

I don't want us to Leave, I want to Remain. Keeping David Cameron for another three years, bad as it is, is better than the economic misery we would suffer from it we left, the possible loss of employment rights such as four weeks holiday a year, the loss of no roaming charges when using a phone in the EU, and all the other benefits of the EU we would lose.

dangerrabbit Sat 16-Apr-16 11:58:55

I'm not a david Cameron fan but I'm voting stay because I want to stay in the eu

This. What an utterly ridiculous reason to base such a large decision on. Especially as he said he wasn't contesting a third term.

Cornettoninja Sat 16-Apr-16 12:00:54

Tempting, but short sighted, misguided and foolish.

lostincumbria Sat 16-Apr-16 12:09:15

Brilliantly put, Cornettoninja

Samcro Sat 16-Apr-16 12:10:46

much as I detest scameron, I won't vote leave to get rid of him.

boatrace30 Sat 16-Apr-16 12:13:47

Yabu. The EU decision will effect us for decades. DC is going before next election anyway. Really really stupid reason to vote "leave".

fascicle Sat 16-Apr-16 12:16:16

As others have suggested, extremely poor strategy/suggestion, OP. The EU vote is too important and far reaching to be sidelined as a dubious tactic for removing Cameron.
