Can Dave be a true Brit?

David Cameron delivers a statement on the steps of Downing Street

In a personal appeal from the steps of No 10 for the "Remain" campaign before the historic EU Referendum vote, David Cameron told us, "Brits don't quit". The next time he appeared on the steps of No 10 he announced that he was doing just that, quitting!  How very un-British. Intentional or not his action looks like an act of vindictiveness to make Brexit voters suffer for ignoring his appeal regardless of the consequences for the UK.

A communications man through and through, this time the PM came unstuck. His luck ran out but the very time his communications skills are most needed for our country rather than party, he has thrown in the towel adding to the difficulties of the EU after his claimed allegiance to the European cause. Definitely not his finest hour.

Another sour grapes loser, political opportunist Nicola Sturgeon can't wait to take advantage of the situation to split the UK. This tedious self assured minnow deserves another resounding rebuff for putting party dogma before unity.

Following the PM's resignation sadly the UK’s EU Commissioner Jonathan Hill also quit. Now the Labour party is in disarray but the one person who should go, Jeremy Corbyn, seems determined to stay regardless of the consequences. As Hilary Benn said, "he is a good decent man but he is not a leader".

The Brussels bureaucrats led by the grossly overpaid Jean-Claude Juncker are in their element, exhibiting the very traits that have angered many across Europe. In contrast German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the European Union has "no need to be particularly nasty in any way" in the negotiations with Britain about its exit from the bloc so people need to keep their heads and not act irresponsibly.

Dave says that he wishes people to remember him for gay marriage. How sad but given his utter failure on the European question perhaps it is not surprising.

One Tory MP who did not vote for gay marriage is Andrea Leadsom. A prominent advocate for Brexit with a formidable financial sector background. I expect we shall be hearing a lot more about this former Economic Secretary to the Treasury.


  1. Come on Father- you know 'Dodgy Dave' would not think of his country, only himself.
    Bring back Liam Fox. He could probably take on the silly Scottish woman too.
    We have to make this chance work.

  2. David Cameron has shown a weakness in quiting.
    He asked the general public a question but he did not like the answer; he should have stayed and worked with the answer to the question,which is the apparent will of the people.
    However,I do not think that the question should ever have been asked ,and in asking the Government abdicated its responsibility to govern. The referendum question and the implications of the complex issues are too difficult for many( and I include myself) to acquire a complete or even a reasonable understanding.
    But Cameron is 'alright Jack': a multimillionaire and police protection for the rest of his life.

    1. What would Jesus say?27 June 2016 at 14:16

      With respect Simple Soul, might one ask if, as you say, the "implications of the complex issues are too difficult for many" (including yourself), did you take the only reasonable option open to you and abstain from voting?

      I have heard and read the "too complex" notion many times but, without exception thus far, it has been put forward by those who voted "Remain" but are unwilling to accept the democratic Brexit outcome.
      Wouldn't you agree that anyone admitting to not understanding the issues had no business casting a vote?

    2. I did vote ,as did all the other people who did not know what they were doing,and that is why we are in a real mess now.
      How did I vote? Not even my spouse knows , and since you claim to know what Jesus would say,no need for me to comment.

    3. What would Jesus say?10 July 2016 at 01:17

      Quite the opposite, I don't claim to know what Jesus would say but I do ask the question.
      Hence the question and the?

      Unfortunately I think you are insulting those who did know what they were doing.
