I have never really liked David Cameron. He’s too slick, too slimy. He is really little more than a British Malcolm Turnbull. I’d hesitate to walk behind him in fear of slipping on the trail of slime he emits. As much as I disliked him personally he never struck me as being stupid. Yet, that is what he has revealed himself to be – tone deaf, stupid. I knew that his “renegotiation” with the EU would not amount to much. The EU cannot be changed. It is an exorbitant old age pensioner’s home for failed politicians and somewhere for Europe’s worst mediocrities to go in order to gain political “experience”. The good of the continent and its peoples matters not a jot to the EU. Any illusion that it was anything but a swamp should have been shattered after the failure of the European Constitution was summarily ignored and rammed down the throats of the continent’s electorates as the infinitely worse Treaty of Lisbon. Wretched Huns, wrecking Europe once again, it was, after all Angular Honecker’s brainchild.
Still, I had anticipated that Cameron, a master of spin and press releases would at least pretend more effectively. He gained nothing. At least Harald Wilson pretended to have gained concessions at a time when the Common Market was far from a political union. Cameron is treating the British people with contempt. After promising a free vote, he is forcing cabinet ministers to support his view. It doesn’t surprise me that support for British liberation from the dying EU has gone up significantly over the last week. It would not surprise me if support for staying in the EU dropped even more as Cameron is, with each faux pas, undermining any case for staying in. If for no other reason, voting to leave the EU would force Cameron to resign and end the political “careers” of other non-entities like Theresa May, George Osborne (I trust no relationship to the two great Osbornes, Christina or Ozzy? ), Phillip Hammond, etc. May the rotting edifice take its sycophants down with it. Sorry, OZ, I will need to keep this quart of Frizz Ease for myself.
