The Second Fiddle Agenda and World War II
The prime minister's laughable exercise in sycophancy in the USA has reached a whole new level of idiocy. In his desperate desire to suck up to the Americans the PM has already announced that we are the monkey to the US organ grinder in the so called "special relationship".
He has been taken for a ride by US Senators up for re-election and desperate to divert their voters' attention from their own short comings, and by a US President whose satisfaction ratings are less than that of Richard Nixon at the same point in his Presidency.
So we are playing second fiddle that’s official!
And the properly elected and constituted Government of Scotland (that he has started aping Gordon Brown by calling an “executive”) was wrong in its administration of Scottish justice. And he wants to be the prime minister of the entire UK?
I think he will find that Scots are not keen on being used as a political football in his toadying tour of the USA. Of course we didn't vote Tory so he probably does not care all that much. However, last time that we had Tories (that we did not vote for) running roughshod over us, we got devolution. This time who knows?
So much for that 10 week "respect agenda". Might be a bit awkward to push Scotland away like that. The USA may have all the power and can keep his seat on the Security Council, but Scotland has even more of that worthless oil now that they have inconveniently found a whole bunch more. So doubtless we will have to pay for the recession as well.
It would seem that there is just nobody the PM won't piss off to make sure that the UK continues to “punch above its weight” on the international scene. All the better for that self important blow-hard to strut around the world pretending to be important. When in actual fact the entire world sees him as a US poodle doing tricks for scraps from their table.
And now he has trumped all that by showing that, despite the benefits of the most expensive education in the world, he does not know his arse from his armpit with regard to history. Not only do we play second fiddle to the USA at the moment but apparently we did during the Second World war and in particular in 1940! Of course the USA didn’t actually join the war until after the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, but that's a mere detail.
What a vile insult to all the UK, Commonwealth and Empire servicemen who resisted Nazi aggression from 1939-1941 (December). There we have oily Dave paying his respects at Arlington Cemetary to US dead of the second world war while trashing the memory of our own. Disgusting! What a repulsive display of a creeping quisling.
What could trump that? Well maybe if Nick Clegg got up at PMQs and said the Second World War was illegal too.
Why doesn’t David just go the whole hog and say that we have been playing second fiddle to the USA since 1776.
