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.

Quote of the Day

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
