It’s great fun, don’t you think?
THE PRINCIPLED LEADER Vs THE MARKETING MAN
David Cameron has a new phrase – “military assets”.
This new phrase has these advantages:
1. It is not as direct as telling it like it is – “military intervention”
2. It can be owned by Cameron, so not inherited second-hand from his famed and far more honest, courageous and capable predecessor – TONY BLAIR.
3. Cameron might be able to fool the left-wing media, for a bit.
1. You need to read this bit of double-talk referred to (without mentioning the double-talk) by Andrew Gimson at The Telegraph. It’s about the double-talking Cameron (without even noticing the double-talk!) in response to Ed Miliband.
Cameron: “If apologies are in order, perhaps he should think of one about the appalling dodgy dealing with Libya under the last government.”
WHICH appalling dodgy dealing, Mr Cameron/Mr Gimson? The decision to try to bring Gaddafi in from the cold (Blair) or the decision to let Al Megrahi go (Scottish government)?
Mr Cameron was in favour of the first decision (Blair’s) but not the second (from Salmond’s devolved government). And yet Cameron refers to “under the last government”.
Sorry, Mr C. You may fool Gimson, but the rest of us can see through the lies.

I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)
