David Cameron's article at the weekend, which appeared in the Sunday Express, has drawn ridicule from a number of areas: Ukip, Menzies Campbell - and Nick Clegg, if the Mail's quoted sources can be believed.
In the Mail article David Cameron is quoted thus:
"The British people have fought and died for people's rights to freedom and dignity but they did not fight so that people did not have to take full responsibility for their actions."
It view of that statement, it is perhaps an opportune time to remind David Cameron of a few salient points:
Neither did the British people fight and die for their freedom, dignity and right to self-governance to be ceded by the actions of self-serving, self-opinionated politicians.
Neither did the British people fight and die to have their society turned upside down by multiculturalism inflicted on them through the actions of politicians driven by ideology;
Neither did the British people fight and die to have their county turned into an economic basket-case, again through the implementation of misplaced and mistaken ideology practised by financial incompetents;
Neither did the British people fight and die so that their elected representatives could plunder the public purse in order that they might enjoy a far higher standard of living;
Neither did the British people fight and die to have their country left virtually defenceless for reasons of political expediency;
Neither did the British people fight and die to have their united kingdom torn asunder, once again for reasons of political expediency;
Finally, as Cameron rightly maintains, neither did the British people fight and die so that people did not have to take responsibility for their actions - which is why Cameron and his ilk will, one day, face the avenging - and maybe bloody - wrath of the British people.
