Cameron Reaps The Whirlwind.
David Cameron has been revealed tonight as the most dim witted bungler who ever took up residence in number 10 Downing Street. Having become used to government by decree when it comes to punishing his fellow countrymen for having the sheer cheek to exist, he has been caught with his trousers round his ankles over Syria in an act of sheer hubris. The reason for this is that Cameron has either forgotten or never knew the basic ABC of how politics works in this country. When taking the country to war the nation has to be more or less united. When taking the country to war the Prime Minister must have the confidence and support of Parliament. After three years of dividing the country between the haves and the have not's, after three years of vilifying his fellow countrymen for being idle scroungers, after three years of dividing British society for short-term political gain, he tried to unify the country behind him in the most cack-handed way possible. He tried to bounce Parliament with a breezy presidential move that he's become far too used to and suddenly discovered that it is Parliament and not the Prime Minister that is sovereign. Even 50 members of the Coalition voted against him. Cameron, in other words, got what he richly deserved at last. Yesterday the News In Shorts asked whether this was Cameron's Churchill or Tony Blair moment. It wasn't either, it was his Anthony Eden moment. He is now a spent force, without a shred of credibility and without the confidence of Parliament. He should resign immediately.
