The threat to British democracy…

On 25 September 2014, David Cameron addressed the United Nations, and justified Britain’s involvement in committing military forces against ISIS;

My message today is simple. We are facing an evil against which the whole world must unite. And, as ever in the cause of freedom, democracy and justice, Britain will play its part.”

A year later, on 13 September, after the election of Jeremy Corbyn as the UK Labour Party’s new leader, David Cameron had this to say about Corbyn’s victory;

How chilling and deeply troubling for a Prime Minister to utter these words; “The Labour Party is now a threat to our national security, our economic security and your family’s security”.

Implicit in that statement is a threat to the British people: we, the Establishment,  will not brook upsetting the status quo; your democracy is an illusion, do not take it seriously; and if you vote for Jeremy Corbyn, then  The Establishment will bring the full force of State power down upon your heads.

The question I now ask myself is; who will bring democracy to Great Britain?

    My, that’s rather hypocritical of him alright, Frank. Just silly how they propagate against each other. Equating the opposition to the Boogieman is churlishness of the most inane kind. It’s as if he hadn’t looked in the mirror for the last 5 years, when it reality, I don’t think they’ve managed to pry him away from it. Truly sad, but it happens on an international level anyway, so it’s not as if we’re not used to it by now I guess.

    I was astonished when I read David Cameron’s pronouncement; but on second thoughts I wonder if Cameron’s intention was to establish a justification for using the secret service to officially snoop on Corbyn in every way possible – including methods that are currently illegal.
