"Truth is truth"

We are feeling extremely cross.

According to the Telegraph, David Cameron will renege on his repeated pledge to the British people to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. He apparently believes the Treaty is a done deal if the Czechs sign it.

Is this too blunt a question? What if the NHS had told David Cameron, 'Sorry, you're eldest son is going to die, so despite promising him round-the-clock care, we won't be delivering any'. Could Cameron possibly have accepted their excuses?

No more can we accept his.

The British people have good reason to be concerned about the EU and its wretched, undemocratic treaty.

Reading Wiki's detailed biography of David Cameron reveals a man who appears to have been brought up in a small social-political bubble and who has lied to the public on a number of occasions. We hope the bio is incorrect.

What a pity. If he simply kept his promise, and didn't flip-flop, he wouldn't be mistaken for a flounder, and he could probably be prime minister.

When will a leader in the mold of Alfred the Great step forward?

"Truth is truth till the end of reckoning."

I completely agree, but I never really believed deep down that Mr Cameron would come through on this.

Though I would carefully avoid giving unnecessary offence, yet I am inclined to believe, that all those who espouse the doctrine of reconciliation, may be included within the following descriptions: Interested men, who are not to be trusted; weak men, who cannot see; prejudiced men, who will not see; and a certain set of moderate men, who think better of the European world than it deserves; and this last class, by an ill-judged deliberation, will be the cause of more calamities to this continent than all the other three.
(For “continent” read “island”)


Plus ça change, plus la même chose, or, Anglo-Saxon Common Sense has no sell-by date.

Death Bredon:

Perhaps the Conservative Party needs a leader a bit less concerned about appeasing Labour. Boris Johnson, perhaps?

Cat:

Possibly.

The British people need to find leaders - men and women - who care more about the people they serve than they care about themselves.
