David Cameron: scaremongering means just what I choose it to mean

Compare …

I just think it is disgraceful to try and frighten people in an election campaign … You should not be frightening people in an election campaign, it is just not right.”

David Cameron in the second TV debate, 22nd April

… and Contrast

“It’s now all becoming clear – the great plan of Nick Clegg’s is becoming clear – he’s only interested in one thing and that is changing our electoral system so that we have a permanent hung Parliament, we have a permanent coalition, we never have strong and decisive government. That’s what he wants to do – it’s now becoming clear he wants to hold the whole country to ransom … just to benefit the Liberal Democrats.”

David Cameron speaking in Romsey, 26th April

The Tory strategists really have a hell of a lot to answer for. Not only is their negative electioneering turning people off, at the very time when we should be engaging citizens, but the convulsive fluctuations in attitude, as you’ve highlighted above, send out terribly mixed messages. surely they teach you in spin school on the first day to keep the message clear simple and consistent?
