Use plain English, Cameron, please?

Referring back to my penultimate post, PoliticsHome is reporting that David Cameron is "profoundly relaxed" in respect of about accusations that Downing Street used heavy-handed tactics to urge Conservative MP Mark Pritchard to back down from holding a debate on the use of wild animals in circuses.

In my book, "profoundly relaxed" translates into "I couldn't give a damn". If there isn't a great deal of difference between his position and that of Pritchard - and those that voted for the ban - then why not just come out and say: "But there's nowt I can do due to our membership of the European Union"?

At least that would be an honest answer - but hey, I forgot, Cameron doesn't do "honesty"! In which case, just why the hell are we providing him with free accommodation and paying him £142,000 per annum?

Seems to me that not only do we have supine MPs, we also have a Prime Minister with the same characteristics!

Just saying....................

Much as I detested Gordon Brown, especially over the Lisbon Treaty, at least we pretty much got what we expected. Cameron gave us hope that he would reverse some of the evils of new Labour but has proved to be a huge disappointment.
To have the power to do something about our membership of the EU and to do nothing about it is a betrayal of the British people on a par with the odious Brown.
