David Cameron, our so-called “leader”: ‘We were the junior partner in 1940 when we were fighting against Hitler; we are the junior partner now. I think you shouldn’t pretend to be something you’re not.’
Catch-up time. I DO have another life. Honestly.
Yes, I realise Cameron’s lack of historical knowledge regarding WW2 dates made most of the headlines, as did Clegg’s lack of understanding of his place at PMQs as a responsible coalition leader. But to me there is an even more worrying issue.
I have been racking the grey cells to try to recall another example of a British prime minister travelling abroad – to ANY country – and then talking down our great nation.
I’ve agreed with Oliver Kamm and Nick Cohen here before in connection to other issues that the left is now the right but they haven’t noticed. Hadn’t expected that the right would have slipped so effortlessly and nonchalantly into the vacated left’s [yes that IS the right word order] bolthole. But as is their wont so far the present ConDems have proved themselves one step ahead of me.
Good to see SOME at The Daily Maul screaming “blue murder”.

“The Cleggeron coalition – Working in partnership to denigrate our country.”
- DISASTROUS Nick Clegg forced to apologise to Parliament for his “illegal” jibe at Straw on Iraq war
- Clegg on the “illegal invasion of Iraq”!!! When was that agreed, Judge Dumbo?
- America’s entry into WW2 – December 1941. NOTE, even then we had supported the USA against Japan after Pearl Harbour, and the Americans only came into the ‘European war’ after Germany had declared war on THEM. So easily findable, this information, Mr Cameron. Even at Wikipedia.
On 7 December (8 December in Asian time zones), 1941, Japan attacked British and American holdings with near-simultaneous offensives against Southeast Asia and the Central Pacific. These included an attack on the American fleet at Pearl Harbor, landings in Thailand and Malaya and the battle of Hong Kong.
These attacks led the U.S., Britain, Australia, and other Allies to formally declare war on Japan. Germany and the other members of the Tripartite Pact responded by declaring war on the United States. In January, the United States, Britain, Soviet Union, China, and 22 smaller or exiled governments issued the Declaration by United Nations, which affirmed the Atlantic Charter. The Soviet Union did not adhere to the declaration; it maintained a neutrality agreement with Japan, and exempted itself from the principle of self-determination.

A recent comment from an Albanian, Mr Leonard Dedej from Tirana – “It takes big leaders to make the hardest turns in peoples life…mr Blair is a big leader and a great man for millions of people in Balkans!!!for stopping a savage war!about Iraq I believe that the press wherever it is has not the right to judge on this issue because it simply is to small to judge!!history will judge mr Blair!as long as it is an ongoing war no one can blame mr Blair,after all he started something for a big reason..the press its often wrong because it fights for audience!!!”
