Tory party leader stands by the depiction of “tosser”

The Conservative Party has reacted to the controversy surrounding their recently launched ’tosser within’ internet video.

“It is a provocative advertising campaign aimed at young people and students, “ explained David Cameron. “There is an old Chinese proverb: 'Tell me and I will forget. Show me, and I will remember.' and with the visualisation of a ’tosser’ we hope to be able to show the nation what we stand for and hope they will remember”.

The advert features an irritating and badly dressed figure who encourages people to swap from one expensive fashionable trend to another, all the while storing up problems for the future without providing any actual solutions.

“This is the kind of thing that you will be seeing more and more from the Tories.” explained Mr Cameron, in turquoise cycling shorts and Day-Glo pink safety helmet. “I have been recently speaking on the environment, on immigration, on poverty and on security to name but four. This ’tosser’ brand is one that you will see increasingly on more and more issues.” Referring back to his Confucian wisdom Mr Cameron added. “When it comes to the tosser within us you will see a lot more showing from the Conservative party in the future.”

Snow Patrol fan David Cameron is no stranger to Internet spread videos of this nature having recently launched his “Webcameron” web journal featuring the Conservative leader commenting on hard hitting political issues whilst doing the washing up. It was after this first series of blogs that the Tories decided upon the depiction of a ‘tosser’ on the internet.

“Mr Cameron and the shadow cabinet have recently said that they want more direct action and so the Conservative Party itself has paid for these ’tossers’,” remarked political commentator Grant Billingsworth. “It remains to be seen after the next election if the taxpayer wishes to pay to see more of this ‘tosser’ too.”
