This morning I caught Conservative politician David Davis on Andrew Marr’s BBC TV program. It seems Mr Davis has just come back from Syria where he met president Assad and he was in discussion about the problems faced by Syria and how they might be resolved.
Davis made a fascinating comment, one which really stood out for me as the absolute epitome of why anyone with any sense hates politicians of whatever shade.
Davis was asked how he saw the conflict being resolved and this was his reply outlining how we might see a negotiated settlement.
“Well they have to negotiate properly, they have to do what we want.”
Let me tell you Mr Davis, that is just the sort of negotiation at which Hitler and Stalin were hugely adept. That is not negotiation, that is dictatorship. There, in a single sentence, is the reason why western foreign policy has turned the middle-east into a powder keg of violence and extremism.
Sadly the people of the UK have also fallen for this brand of neo-fascism by electing a conservative government. The attitude that says “we know what is best for you so kindly do as I say” is just so incredibly arrogant and sadly it is exactly this attitude that guides government policy in our country today.
It is sad, elitist and just down right bloody wrong and yet the British people continue to bend over and say more please. Wake up People!
