"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Cameron's Mid-Life Crisis

Cameron really shouldn't be let out of the country. The next time he plans a tour of the Indian sub-continent the UKBA should detain him at at Heathrow and hold him at the nearest detention centre.

There's a modern trend for Western 'world leaders' to apologise for their country's history; Blair did it, Obama did it and Cameron is never one to let a sound-bite slip by.

Speaking in Pakistan he told his audience that Britain is responsible for many of the area's current problems by virtue of its historic legacy. While he may have a point that drawing straight lines on a map is not the best way to resolve tensions between warring factions he should remember that there was nothing better on offer at the time. He should also remember that Britain left those countries with the foundations of a functioning democracy and the rule of law; what they've done in the past seventy years and their current predicament is down to them.  As an aside, I wonder whether we'll see a future British PM apologise for our current role in Libya?

At a time when our economy is in dire straits Cameron is trying to assuage his trendy white man's guilt by off-loading it on to our shoulders and giving a further £650m to Pakistan for schools.   Pakistan is now the single biggest recipient of Britain's aid.  According to this article, Pakistan spends only 2% of its budget on education but 15% on defence and while our own defence budget is cut by 8% and Armed Forces personnel  are being slashed Pakistan is negotiating with China to buy six submarines costing £1bn.  Where they choose to spend their money is down to them; they make the choices and must accept the responsibility and consequences.  It isn't for a foreign country to step in and fund the gap.

Cameron's a liability.   I bet he didn't raise the matter of Aasia Bibi, the Christian woman facing hanging in this primitive backwater.  Maybe it's time our PM came home and apologised to the British people for the mess it's in after decades of squandering taxpayers' money, failed multicultural policies, the insidious creep of subversive Frankfurt School policies and lies about the EU.  Then he could set about cutting the overseas aid budget and concentrate on fixing what's broken at home.

  1. Come come GV. A politician apologise for his/her mistakes? Whatever next?

    You're too right though!

  2. Labours world-wide apology for slavery was the one that annoyed me the most. It was just so wrong on so many levels.
    If anything Britain deserves a special UN Medal Of Honour for being largely responsible for getting rid of slavery worldwide (except currently in a few Araby places).

  3. I cannot decide whether this wanker is doing as he is told or he is just stupid.
    If he is doing as he is told then what he appears to be doing is inciting the people upon these islands to rebel.
    If he is just being stupid then we really are screwed.

  4. I should think Cameron's apology and further funding to Pakistan have just lost him several more votes. They're not doing well at all and don't really seem to care about the UK only insofar as they can screw more taxes out of us. The local elections will be interesting.

  5. GV, lots of sweary words, is just doing what his, even more sweary words, family did to the Chinese over a century ago, sweary words ad infinitum, to UKplc. Sweary, sweary, sweary wording us over and taking a fat fee.

    I spent some time at the weekend with a ChiComm business chum and how can I put this delicatley. There will be no housing slump in UKplc because the Red lads with all the world's cash REALLY, REALLY like the idea of a big cushty UKplc billet with aboriginal slaves serving them tea and fine wines. Pay back time.

    That's what all the subliminal stuff on TEEVEE with training waiting staff and apprentiships is about. Conditioning us for serfdom a la 18th century.

    Internships =Internment.

    Anyway here's some therapy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEWeoay58pY&feature=player_embedded

    BTW Pakistan and ChiCommland are biggest, bestest buddies. Curiously neither of them give a flying one about human rights.

  6. Hi Incoming, yes, we make the perfect offshore island with conditioned and captive inmates. I've been amazed at the lengths the govt is going to to keep house prices up - I think that, left to find their own true market level, they'd have fallen more drastically than they have. So much foreign money investing in top property in central London I suppose.

    I followed a link from your place earlier today - I see the execution vans are doing a roaring trade in organ-harvesting.

  9. Hi Fuzzy - well, you've had one of your own so we feel each other's pain! Both countries have done a great deal of good in the world and that's something that must never be acknowledged in our nwo.
