      Cameron's last stand says:

      Gove is the one minister that was on top of his brief, had a genuine passion for his job and wanted the very best.

      Madness, complete madness to demote him.

      Cameron thinks that popularity rather than doing the right thing wins elections. Logically he should be right but the electorate is wiser than that.

An inept, shallow man with no foresight, who can never judge the implications of his completely idiotic and clumsy handling of everything he touches. I can quite believe that he is jealous of anyone that has a better press than he receives. In reality he is an odious creature of little, if any, talent!

    Meanwhile Dave has announced his intention to blow a small fortune, which we don’t got, in the forlorn hope of combating terrorism. He might do better investing in a new brain. Although financing that could necessitate a public bank-account emptying bail-in. Alternatively he could have his current device reprogrammed and thus upgraded for free. Simply by acquainting his version of reality with the real thing. Primarily though acknowledging existence of all those illegal schools, shown on Dispatches last night. ‘Academies’ that are teaching delusion, as their major specialist subject. Secondarily, he might instruct Mike’s successor to make critical thinking a mandatory part of the universal syllabus instead. So our kids can undertake the task no government appears up to. Pray tell which part of, we will never eliminate ideological illusion by use of apish aggression, needs lucubration?

    This Wiki Article needs some serious updating:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coercive_diplomacy

    The ‘failure’ count is a bit higher than success, but failures do tend to be noticed more.

    Some notable failures not listed (as no cites exist just yet I guess…):

    Gulf War 2
    War on terror generally
    Syr!a
    Ukra!ne
    Possibly: !ran

    You should see a pattern.

    Note that it is understood that this method of diplomacy does have significant downside risks if it goes wrong for the coercer, up to and including loss of credibility.

    Russ!a seems to have figured out a way of subverting it – another reason I would put Dr K’elley’s death at their door. (An active-measure with a provokatsiya twist)

    This policy tool is very hazardous and fails when an opponent calls your bluff.

    In that situation the coercer is in a bind.

    Letting rip with delivering on a promise of a’rmageddon will cost you $’s and get you bad press, both at home and abroad.

    Not delivering on a’rmageddon makes you look weak and destroys credibility, thus emboldening others to call your bluff also.

    In either case the policy device becomes redundant, which does actually increase the probability of proper fighting wars occurring.

    The lose-lose downside – with very little scope for recovery – also provides perfect propaganda for a hostile to use in order to subvert a domestic government for purposes of perhaps staging a peaceful coup or insurgency.

    Worth mulling before ridiculing completely H’ague’s replacement.

    Vote UKIP :-D

    Whistleblower says:

    Perhaps Guido would like to look into the below.

    i am a former member of private office working for the home Secretary’s Jacqui Smith and for a short while Alan Johnson. During my time working for Jacqui Smith there was an issue with leaking i had nothing to do with this and so frankly it did not concern me until one day a work colleague I had until recently sat next to disappeared. His mane was Christopher Galley and he had been leaking to the then Shadow Minister for Immigration You may recall the furore caused by the Police’s decision to raid his office over at the House of Commons a raid carried out by Anti Terror Police i believe that these Police were formally know as special branch special branch communicate with the security Security Service.

    I must confess I did know Mr Galley both professionally and socially though I was never anything to do with his leaking I did not and for that matter still don’t condone his behaviour After an extended period of time myself having been interviewed by the Police (whist sat at the Home Secs mtg table) it was decided by the CPS not to press charges. I was shocked and still more shocked to find that I was thereafter I believe still subject to a very frightening surveillance campaign carried out I’m not entirely sure by whom. I eventually decided to talk to my line manager the PS responsible for the Security Service. In brief shortly thereafter I was informed not to worry and that the investigation into me was over. The pressure however remained intense for various reasons and In my opinion it’s possible that the PS responsible for Security Service issues and who was also my line manager was spying on me.

    I would just like to point out that one of Jacqui Smiths special advisers was Katie Myler who went on to work for Ed Milliband she is also the daughter of Colin Myler the last editor of the news of the world…….

    Ultimately it became to much and I felt forced to leave the Home Sec’s private office I was moved into the Home Office Communications department it didn’t work out these issues continued to follow me. The election came and went and some considerable time later i was still in the same position during this period to cut a long story short I misdialled a phone number It must have been similar to another one I had called umpteen times Its my opinion at that point a surveillance effort against me was resumed at this point the PM had Andy Coulsen working for him. if that’s the case then the PM employed Coulsen whilst an active National Security investigation into News International was being carried out and I think Coulsen was still being payed by NI.

    Remember after Coulsen’s conviction the PM would not disclose what advice Sir Gus O’Donell had given him did he advise him against hireling Coulsen whist this investigation was still going on its a key issue and we don’t have an answer it matters I believe. My life has been decimated totally destroyed by this everything is gone for me this has gone on for over six years without end their is no end in site I’d argue the price I paid for working in private office and sitting next to Christopher Galley has been worse.

    I believe that just maybe the Governments Response to phone hacking was the investigation that lead to the arrest of Galley Green that it morphed into the phone hacking investigations that go onto this day and it has destroyed me as an innocent man. What really matters hear however is the question did the PM knowingly put National Security at risk when he hired Coulsen a man who was invited into national security briefings he was never vetted for if my recollection of the evidence given to the Leveinson inquiry is right I think we the public have a right to know and I’m deeply confused as to why it’s a question not really being asked.
