David's Musings


Out of the mouths of………….

Ed Miliband:

“I don’t think that G4S should receive their £50 million management fee for services provided to the Olympics and frankly I think its beggars belief that they think they’re entitled to it, given the comprehensive mess that they have made of the security of the Olympic Games.”

David Cameron:

“That is the clear fact I think that we can all see on the ground. The [Syrian] regime has done some truly dreadful things to its own people. I don’t think any regime who’s carried out acts, as they have, against their own citizens and continue to do so, should survive.”

I quite agree with Ed Miliband as I too don’t think that MPs should receive their remuneration for services they have not provided the country and frankly, I think it beggars believe that they think they’re entitled to any, given the comprehensive mess they have made.

So when will Miliband and his colleagues, members of the last administration, make recompense?

I quite agree too with David Cameron that no ruler who has done dreadful things to his people, who has carried out acts against his own people, should survive.

So when will Cameron do the honourable thing – a glass of whisky and a revolver spring to mind?

Just asking……….

    Wicked, David, wicked…but I totally agree!

  2. Ermm – I’m not aware that Cameron has been shelling Liverpool or sent the army into Glasgow to machine gun rangers fans.

    Whilst he has a long charge sheet of serial betrayals of the people’s interests he is no more guilty than the entire rest of the political class of the western world which operates in a bubble and exclusively for the benefit of its own members.

    He is more of a liar and a thief therefore than a murderer, and not to be conflated with Assad who is a mass murderer not quite yet on a biblical scale, but certainly well up there with most other late 20th century tyrants.

    I agree we have problems in this country God help us, and Cameron is one of them, but we’re a lot better off than some

    • david says:

      And a betrayer of the people’s interests is to be allowed to continue? When considering ‘acts of suppression’ betrayal is less of a crime than murder? And the fact that we may be a tad better off than others is no excuse for condoning the little we are allowed.

      Where is your wrist – it deserves a slap!

    Don’t think that I would go so far as whisky and a revolver. But his public life should not be allowed to continue. So I would settle for a note of resignation. Trouble is of course until the system is repaired he would only be replaced by another backstabber.

      “Don’t think that I would go so far as whisky and a revolver.”

      I’m not offering to supply them!

      A resignation note is akin to an apology – there has to be some form of recompense to those he has ‘abused’ and that goes for every politician that has failed.

      • Jim says:

        Fair point, make him do 5 years unpaid service in the Army then. Not so sure about the whisky but he wont last long unless he learns to duck bullets.

  4. Dave H says:

    Cameron would probably spill the whisky and shoot the dog while attempting to do himself in, That seems to be about his level of achievement so far. Plenty of promise, not much substance.

    Syria is among the best of moderate secular dictatorships, considering what is on offer in the rest of the ME from Saudi Arabia and the rest. Syria is a “beacon” of freedom of opportunity for religious minorities and women (comparatively). Christians can practice their faith publicly and without fear. Women can get an education and job, drive cars and do just about anything. What exactly do the opposition MB offer?


    Syrian Rebels Plundering and Destroying Churches


    or this

    Barnabas Fund has launched a crisis appeal for Christians in Syria, who are hungry and helpless amid the brutal fighting between government troops and Sunni fanatics.

    More than 200 Christians have been killed, and the community has been beset by a series of kidnappings. The rebels make high ransom demands for the return of the captives, but in two known cases the victims bodies were found after the money had been paid. Some families are now becoming so desperate that they tell the kidnappers to kill their loved one immediately rather than subjecting them to torture.


    It was obvious that the replacement to Mubarak, Libya etc, would not be a liberal democratic regime, but a choice between a military junta and fanatic Islam. In fact, in Islamic countries, the best option is a stable moderate dictatorship. What we now have are fanatic Salafist regimes in the above, where burning churches and killing Christians is koranically sanctioned.

    Syria is the one country that has taken hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Christians when we “liberated” Iraq. It is one the few ME countries that has freedoms for religious minorities. Women are as free as they are in the West. And we want to replace this by Saudi Arabia funded MB regime.
