A man devoid of any principle

I am sceptical of those who claim to draw the answer to every problem from a loud ideology,

It must have been incredibly easy for Cameron to write those words for the Failygraph given he lacks any ideology and is driven only by the desire to attain office for its own sake.

It is the clamour among the likes of Cameron in the political class to plant their flags in the mythical ‘centre ground’ of politics – to dispense with the challenge of adversarial politics in search of the easy comfort of unprincipled consensus, and construct a uniform and hubristic front that holds the line against the wishes of the electorate – that is accelerating the rejection of politics and the political process.

Because of his arrogance Cameron believes he knows better than everyone else, which is why he professes to know the message people are sending through the election results.  Apparently the people are telling him to focus on what matters, deliver what you promise and prove yourself in the process.  ‘I get it,’ he declares.  He draws this conclusion because it is the one he wants to be able to draw, irrespective of reality.

Cameron doesn’t want to acknowledge or accept the fact that the issue is elected representatives failing to represent the wishes of the people.

Once elected, councillors and MPs become the tools of the party whips and agenda riddled civil service, putting party and bureaucratic agenda before the issues that matter to the electorate.  Their interests are not the same as our interests.  Cameron’s message of delusion and deception makes clear he intends to continue to thumbing his nose at the country – and the fools in the Conservative party who have propped him up as he has systematically stripped its policies of anything approaching conservative values.

If Cameron’s piece in the Barclay Boys’ Beano is valuable for anything, it is that Cameron has signalled his intent to continue treating the public with contempt.  And he will do it with the help of the rest of the political class notwithstanding the trivial differences between them, because he is a man devoid of any principle.

    Is it a bad sign that I saw the title of this piece come up on my RSS feed and I knew who the subject was going to be?

    Thanks plenty for this. One can cc this to the situation here in Sweden, all and only variations necessary is the name-change from ‘Cameron’ to Reinfeldt.

    Re: Ilondel. Yes, it probably is a bad sign that you knew who the subject of this article would be. I knew it too. It doesn’t matter whether it’s politicians in the Divided Kingdom, Sweden, Australia or anywhere else. They’re all on the same page, if not necessarily the same line of that page.

    Cameron is so bad that one must be suspicious about whether there is an agenda, handing the keys to Red Ed or whatever.

    An excellent piece, thank you. Cameron is utterly despicable and devoid of any substance worthy of a PM and his cronies are as bad. I would love Guy Fawkes to come back and blow them all up.

    This is from a recent US article:

    “For those within the ranks of the New World Order, “left” and “right”, Democrat and Republican, are ultimately meaningless terms. This is undeniable after one realizes that the leadership on both sides of the aisle exhibit almost identical policy initiatives and voting records. When the two primary political entities of a system differ only in rhetoric but not in action, one has to question whether they are separate parties at all:”

    This is what is really happening:
