What on Earth Does The British
Think He Is PM Doing?
(Redacted removed reference to colours)
My question to Cameron is this why on earth did he have to include that boy in his cheap and nasty little publicity stunt? I can't say I am overly impressed with Cameron's team of publicity seekers for thinking it OK to use a young lad for their own purposes in this fashion and I sincerely hope that the little boy was not placed in any danger from extremists. (Maybe those multicultural" ones that Cameron wants to beat up with his "muscular Liberalism"?)
I'm sure that David Cameron thought it was a good idea to be the first Western leader to visit Egypt since their revolution, but in haste to be the first, did it not occur to Cameron that perhaps the Egyptian *interim* government had seriously better things to do with their time than be forced to drop everything and play host to one of David Cameron's little publicity seeking stunts? (Snow and huskies and push bikes followed by cars spring to mind here.) Yet again the British prime minister's judgement (or total lack of) is called into question, what with his faux pas on the lack of knowledge of his own country's WW2 history, his insulting of the Pakistani people by somehow inferring they were nearly all terrorists, then upsetting Israel by telling them the Gaza Strip is a "prison camp" and more recently his speech on "multiculturalism" to other bemused world leaders, the man is quite clearly an "arse" and what is more he is making the UK look to be a country of "arses".
Last year in the recession hit UK, which this government are making much worse than it need be, we were hit by an unnecessary swine flu epidemic because of the government's refusal to adhere to expert medical advice and government policy was in tatters. Hospitals up and down the country were struggling to cope and on black alert and all our critical care beds were full of people suffering from swine flu, we lost over 120 people to the H1N1 virus, mainly babies, children and young adults. Several Tory flagship bills were disintegrating before our eyes; The country was brought to a halt under snow and ice, roads were gridlocked and aeroplanes grounded; The government were being hit by sleaze allegations and Andy Coulson and phone hacking scandal was paralysing the British government. Where was David Cameron? He was nowhere to be seen or heard, however, then the English national cricket team won the Ashes, where was Cameron? Up he pops on Sky news on national TV to gush about the cricket team guys and how he is planning a champagne reception for them and how their success was going to cheer Britian. Honest to God you could not make this stuff up.
This Middle East tour had been organised for some time, but surely in the wake of what happened in Tunisia, Egypt and Bahrain and then Libya, it seriously was not a time to cavort around that region trying to flog arms to undemocratic countries? Especially at a time when leaders and foreign secretaries of other countries were at home frantically working around the clock to get their nationals out of Libya, ours was in the region flogging arms, and our Foreign Secretary of State, William Hague, was making bizarre statements and nothing was being done to bring our people home out of Libya. Every other country managed to have someone at the airport to help their nationals when they arrived, did the UK? No. The Portuguese tried valiantly to help everyone who needed help, what about the UK? Er no. Even little Austria managed to have a completely organised evacuation programme, but the UK? No, our PM is far too busy organising publicity stunts and doing arms deals with his Tory donor arms dealers mates - first things first after all. Foreign Policy?
David Cameron's Tory government is becoming synonymous with failure, 'U' turns, "muck-ups", appalling judgement and a disastrous foreign policy, in fact it looks very much like Britain does not even have any kind of coherent and cohesive foreign policy any longer, which is probably why the PM's mate Dick Olver of BAe, just flogged India (who British Government supports with aid to their internal charities, while cutting funding to our own) 57 jet fighter planes, when the PM was on another arms "recky" with his Tory donor business leader mates!
Meanwhile, while David Cameron is away on his little Middle Eastern arms soiree, Nick Clegg Britain's deputy PM was asked if he was in charge while Cameron is away, Clegg answered; "Yeah, I suppose I am. I forgot about that"!
Britain is being governed by power crazy, money grabbing reckless corrupt halfwits - it will all end in tears. How I long for the days when we had grown up people doing grown up jobs in the UK and not these feckless privileged jumped up ponces we have now.
Come back Labour, "warts 'n all", we miss you and your country and people need you.
