HANGING ON THE TELEPHONE

By ATWadmin On November 24th, 2009

WHAT is the point of a Crown minister?

Bob Ainsworth, the defence secretary, has blamed Barack Obama and the United States for the decline in British public support for the war in Afghanistan.

Mr Ainsworth took the unprecedented step of publicly criticising the US President and his delays in sending more troops to bolster the mission against the Taliban.

Since ministers exist now to go where Brussels and the White House direct, it cannot be long until Britons forget what it is to govern ourselves in our own self interest.
