And the author is...........?

From the May/June 2011edition of "Free Britain", the newspaper of the Campaign for an Independent Britain (CIB), the first two paragraphs of an article (which I trust CIB will not mind my sharing):
"The shambolic sight of UK rescue operations in Libya was a national embarrassment.The ridiculous choices of the Coalition Government,to spend more on EU membership (now £48million a day) and foreign aid (£23million a day) when we are making dangerous cuts to our own military services speaks volumes. They cut at home to squander money abroad. And we call these politicians our public servants!


This piecemeal salami slicing of our self-government has dire consequences indeed. Even if we did have an independent foreign policy, the Coalition's outrageous defence cuts leave us almost defenceless. why else would there have been speculation on loss of the Falklands when the cuts were announced? How can aircraft carriers without any aircraft to carry make sense? The idea should have been laughed out of the room."
And the author of this coruscation?

The man who famously stated:
"I have been increasingly impressed by the leadership shown by David Cameron in dealing with this country's problems."

Ha-ha - well & truly hoist. I love it when something like this turns up. Nice find. (Mind you, not that it makes any difference - most of them seem to think truth is elastic).

Thanks GV, it caused me to chuckle somewhat.......

Yes hoist truly and petard are the words that immediately spring to mind!

Ha ha ha. They still don't get it do they? They don't realise that sometime, somewhere a blogger will find them out.
