Once again, British [and other] citizens have been killed by Islamic terrorists.
Leaving aside the valid counter argument that we have killed an awful lot of Muslims in the last fifteen years, let’s look at what happens next.
Wheel out the platitudes!
“I say Rupert , old man, dust off that ‘they won’t succeed’ speech, for Dave”
“the 1972 version?”
“Yes, obviously, with the names changed, again.”
Puffed up Toad of Toad Hall was big on talk when it came to the weasels but he had to be rescued by Badger , Mole and Rat.
Let me translate Dave’s words for you.
“we will defeat the terrorists”= “we are currently in talks with them , offering all sorts of incentives, if only they would stop”
“these terrorists will not succeed”= “my officials will invite them to Chequers”
“there is no place for these Islamist extremists in the modern world”= “OTR letter, Royal Pardon, Abdul?”
Anybody who has had dealings with the Cameron Government over the last five years knows what a liar he is. For example ,he promised that Sir Kim Darroch would negotiate on behalf of the Libyan victims but Sir Kim, properly, told me that that was not the brief that he had been given.
The fact is that the British Foreign Office is a mealy mouthed pathetic excuse for an organisation which fails to represent British Interests. On this Armed Forces Day I’m sure that most veterans would not disagree.
Dave/Toad will do nothing much, except bluster. He will rely on stronger friends to wield the cudgels on the weasels.
