Bearsy, have you been phoning Downing Street again?

CWJ travelled extensively with his family, having worked in eleven countries over thirty years. A keen photographer, holding a Private Pilot's Licence, he focuses mainly on landscape and aerial imagery. Having worked in the Middle East extensively he follows developments in that region with particular interest, and views with growing concern, the radicalisation flowing from Islamic fundamentalism, and the intolerance for opposing views, stemming from it.

  1. The article, CWJ, purportedly asserts what David Cameron will say.

    I shall believe it if and when he has actually said it. 😕

    … and no, as a loyal Australian I confine my activities to e-mailing Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd. Cameron is the leader of a region of the EUSSR, which is not my concern. 😎

  2. I’ll say it openly, the man has balls.

    A multicultural society is the perfect society provided we all stick to the same values otherwise it is only a recipe for disaster. It is meant to mean a mixed society, not a divided one.

    I wonder if Julia will follow suit with a similar speech?

  3. Donald, mate –

    • He hasn’t said it yet. He may not have the balls.
    • Multiethnic, yes; multicultural, no. That’s the difference between Australia and the UK. If we went back to multicultural (apart from the abos, who are a bit of a special case), we’d be buggered.
  4. I guess we’ll find out soon enough, but if he does make the speech then I can see a Domino effect in most Western Nations. About time too

  5. The text of the P.M.’s speeches are frequently circulated to the media beforehand, in order that they can be reported in advance on particular issues for maximum impact. Donald, in fact one or two other European leaders have been jumping up and down about this for some time, with Sarkozy probably the most strident. You can bet they have been discussing how to tackle the problem amongst themselves at EU meetings. Embroiled in all this is the question of continuing consideration of Turkey’s request for accession to the EU (made in 1987).

  6. Words are cheap – “by their deeds shall ye know them”.

    So far there’s been a lot of hot air from that duo…
