David Cameron, What A Cock!

There I have said what has needed to be said for a long time. This guy is a complete cock. In his recent sweeping statements in published in the telegraph "he hints that the two aircraft carriers will be scrapped". He also states that

"We’ve got a lot of battle tanks that are ready to roll into Russia. Well that’s not what you need today. We’ve got aeroplanes that are ready to do dog fights with the Soviet Union Air Force. That’s not right.”

While some of what he is saying is probably true does David Cameron have the right to preempt the SDSR. The worst thing about Cameron and his cronies is that they seem to be relishing in the task of decimating the British Armed forces.

Yes things are bad in the economy. Yes the last government left a bit of a mess. Yes we are stuck in a long bitter war in Afghanistan. However that is no reason for a serving British prime-minister to make snide little comments and digs at the armed forces.

However the end is in sight. the Liberal Conservative coalition is such an unholy alliance it won't last long. I predict the letter that was leaked from Fox to Cameron was actually Fox's first shot across the bow of Cameron. Cameron is to the Tory's what Blair was to Labour. No one likes them but they felt that the voting public would prefer them. If they won the election then the ends justified the means. Well guess what the conservatives lost the election. Add to that they have been forced to share power with a party that is more Labour than Labour. To add insult to injury Ant and Dec are now talking about a merger. He has also given the lib Dem's way to much power in the coalition. With such a small majority can he really afford to loose the Tory right. I don't think so. As soon as they bring a bill out recommending laying up half the navy, putting 10,000 ship yard workers out of work. Cancelling orders for a fighter jet that is responsible for employing 100,000 in the country and all but disbanding the countries ability to wage war the party will fracture. Labour will vote against it as will the SNP and other peripheral parties.

Cameron's smugness hides that fact that he knows he is fucked as soon as the SDSR comes out. Fox and the rest of the right have been quiet up to to now. Everyone likes the ministerial cars and the feeling of being in government . However they will only take so much before putting Cameron in his place. Even if that means another general election. Hopefully an election where defence spending takes a more key role. Any other response from the Tory right will see themselves all but disbanded in the new Ant and Dec party.

Everyone from the UK who is interested in defence spending and the treatment of the armed forces should remember this. In a fractured democracy where little sets apart the main parties minorities hold all the power. Those of us interested in defence are definitely a minority. Right to your local MP. Let them know that the SDSR is a real political issue in the way that health or education is. Make your feelings known. Even if just a few government MP's vote against it it will never pass Parliament. .
