So, US President George Bush is going to challenge British Conservative leader David Cameron to support his threat to attack Iran over its nuclear weapons building programme. 

In his first major test on the international stage, the Conservative leader, accompanied by Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague, is scheduled to meet the President for low-key talks in Washington during a two-day trip to the United States. In a carefully choreographed programme, Mr Bush is expected to ‘drop in’ when Mr Cameron and Mr Hague meet White House National Security Adviser Stephen Hadl.

Basically Bush will test to see if he can rely on Conservative leader Cameron should military action be required since he already knows that he can’t rely on British PM Gordon Brown who has made it clear that his only strategy is dialogue and possible sanctions. If they don’t work – and they haven’t – well, Gordon has no Plan B. 

I fear Bush is going to be disappointed. It seems to me that British politicians are too wrapped up in their pathetic self-serving domestic agenda to worry that much about the threat from the Mad Mullahs. I feel that there is a mood of indifference amongst the Euro-political "elite" on the topic of Iran, they are way too scared to support any military action and risk losing the commercial advantages that come from trading with Iran and it’s neighbours. I cannot see Cameron having the cajones to support Bush on this key issue, and when I read that the best his Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague can do is make after-dinner jokes about President Bush I am reminded why I have little time for British conservatism.

Two Questions

1. How is it that both the media and even some of our own columnists still don’t get what Sarkozy really is?

And also:

"He sat down to a near-unanimous standing ovation including, I am ashamed to write, from British MEPs in all three main parties…"

2. Why are you still in a Conservative Party that ceased to have any semblance of agreement with your views years ago, Mr. Hannan?

I do like reading Iain Dale, the UK Conservative blogger but I find I don’t agree with much that he says insofar is his conclusions have little connection to the body of his argument.

Let’s take two examples from his article in the Daily Telegraph today;

First, he accepts that it is right for political candidates to speak out on issues on which they feel strongly. Yet Iain shows a complete lack of support for the Conservative candidate Nigel Hastilow who was hounded out of the Conservative Party earlier this week merely for suggesting that Enoch Powell has a point about the downsides of immigration!

Then, writing as a gay man, he rightly points out that the pro-Gay rights laws are anti-freedom of expression. Well said Iain. Yet he adds that the best we can expect from his Party on this is a "courageous" abstention in the Commons when it comes to opposing the legislation.

You see this is where I have the problem. Those like Iain do know what is right but they lack the bottle to say it, or support it. That’s why when it comes down to it, you really CANNOT trust Conservatives. They know right, they support wrong – hypocrites does not seem too strong a word?

Why on Earth should a Conservative Parliamentary candidate who said that Enoch Powell was “right” on immigration be asked to explain himself to the party’s chairman?

Nigel Hastilow’s local party in the West Midlands said his comments in a newspaper column were “relaying the views of the public”. But Shadow Chancellor George Osborne said he would be told all candidates must use “calm language on immigration”. (Tell lies and mislead the public) Labour minister Peter Hain said it showed the Tories’ “racist underbelly”. Enoch Powell was sacked from the Conservative shadow cabinet after a controversial speech in 1968 against uncontrolled immigration.

Here again we see the overwhelming political need in Britain to shut up anyone who cares to point out the dangers presented by uncontrolled immigration. The idea that Mr Hastilow has to “explain” himself to wee Georgie Osbourne is ridiculous. It also shows that the Conservative Party cannot be trusted in any way on this most important issue.  As for the repulsive Peter Hain, he also shows that our Government is intent to tear apart the demographics of this country through uncontrolled immigration and will lash out at anyone who points this out.

boris3.jpgYes, I WOULD be happy for him to become the next Mayor of London (Almost anyone is better than the vile Livingstone) but in every other respect, Boris Johnson is a clown. Take his endorsement of Hillary Clinton in this article in this morning’s Telegraph. When you read through it, he seems to saying that he endorses Hillary because he wants to see Bubba Bill back in the White House! Apparently Boris reckons that Bill would not have made the same mistakes that Bush allegedly made post 9/11. Really?

Boris forgets that it was Clinton who passed on the chance to KILL Bin Laden prior to 9/11. Of course with his pressing sexual adventures with young interns, who can blame Bill for being a tad distracted, eh? Boris IS a buffoon on these broader issues, he betrays the GOP, he shows that British Conservatives are basically liberals at heart. I suppose it would be mean-spirited to mention Boris’s own serial adultery, his betrayal of his wife? Maybe he finds Bill Clinton a kindred spirit?

Interesting to note that both the Times and the Telegraph today have censored David Cameron’s "Lithuanian quote." As ATW reader Terry asks, "Apparently he referred to "one-legged Lithuanians" rather than "one-legged Lithuanian lesbians". Note how both titles are ensuring that lesbians are not referred to in a derogatory way; fine if you’re putting forward opinion, but not if you’re reporting news." He’s 100% right – the role of the media is not to censure opinion in this way!

Yes, it’s what I’ve been claiming ever since he became Leader of the Conservative Party but David Cameron has now "reached out" to disgruntled  Liberal Democrat voters urging them to join the Conservatives, insisting it was their only chance of getting rid of a "failing" Labour government. The Tory leader cast his party as the "liberal Conservatives", claiming they were now more in tune with LibDem supporters’ concerns about civil liberties, the environment, schools and local government.

He’s right. The British Conservative Party IS a liberal party these days, which is one reason why no conservative voter should consider supporting it. Propelled into power, Cameron will hike taxes, he will enhance the role of the State, he will remove liberty from individuals and he will deny that we are at war with Islam – in other words he will do everything that the lunatics in the Liberal-Democrats would  do if they got into power themselves. So I suppose it is a good deal for Liberal Voters insofar as the Conservative Party prostitutes its once proud values in order to gain their worthless support.

terminator3_front.jpgI wonder what you make of the news that Conservative leader David Cameron says he is turning his back on calls from party hardliners for distinctive rightwing policies, and that he will instead move into core Labour territory by claiming that only his party can tackle poverty in Britain?

Speaking during an upbeat tour of the US west coast, Mr Cameron hailed Mr Schwarzenegger as a model centre-right politician and acknowledged his debt to the film star-turned politician, describing himself as a fan. He said: "My wife said to me: ‘How are you going to explain to an American audience what sort of Conservative you are?’ I said: ‘I’ll say look at me and think of Arnold Schwarzenegger’."

What total nonsense from Call Me Dave. He appears to have already forgotten that the only time the polls have shown his Party with a lead over Labour in recent times has been when he invoked core "rightwing" policies such as tax breaks. For those of us who have watched RINO Schwarzenegger, we know he is a liberal, an actor, a faux Conservative. So I’m not surprised Call Me Dave wants to be Call Me Arnie!

I received an email from an ATW reader expressing his disgust at how current leftists no longer believe in the things that those on the left once did. In the case of the reader concerned, he wonders where all the leftists from the 1960’s went to? Back then he believed in fighting for better rights for workers (He was a miner back then) and for a Health service for all. Nothing wrong with that at that time. But it is my view that as one matures, it is natural to move onto the political right. This is being accentuated by the current mob of leftists who now hate their country, hate their culture, hate their freedoms and hate the idea of working for a living.

I think it was the Four Tops who sang "Reach out, I’ll be there" and today will see British Conservative Leader Call Me Dave Cameron "reaching out" to all those who currently don’t vote, imploring them to join his "positive politics"!! LOL – but is it possible to conceive of a more stupid strategy? There may be many reasons why people don’t vote but I dare say one of the major ones is because they see no-one worth voting for! The notion that a Tony Blair wannabe who flits in the wind policy wise can INSPIRE the non-voting into the polling booth is risible. I’ve noticed that a few otherwise sensible commentators, such as Melanie Phillips and Richard Littlejohn have given a two cheers for Cameron this week, but they’re grasping at straws.
