Dave Breaks Syria Silence

Cameron has finally spoken out on that awkward, but largely forgotten, incident over the summer when he recalled Parliament and was promptly hamstrung by his own backbenchers and, subsequently, Ed Miliband. Speaking to “the City of London, the global home of finance,” at last night’s Lord Mayor’s Banquet, Dave claimed:

“And yes, when it came to the brutal crimes of the Assad regime against its people we stood up for the right values in Syria. And let’s not pretend that Syria would now be giving up its chemical weapons if we and our allies had looked the other way. Britain is a country that has always been prepared to stand up for its values.”

Sort of.

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
