The ideological void that Conservative Leader David Cameron represents is manifest in his latest off-the-wall suggestion that society needs to learn to "love louts" a bit more.
Cameron insisted Labour’s get-tough policies and Asbos had failed to tackle the teen thug crimewave.
And he urged people instead to focus on the root causes of crime and “show a lot more love”. The plea — which follows his “hug a hoodie” gaffe last summer — came as it was revealed that our teens top the league for casual sex, drinking, drug-taking and petty crime.
Mr Cameron said in a speech in Wales: “To those who simply say, ‘Crime is the fault of the criminal and that’s all there is to it’, I say: Tell it to a young offender."
I SAY TELL IT TO THE VICTIM OF CRIME.
Cameron is so soaking wet that he is virtually without substance – and yet the poor desperate for power Tories have installed this clown as their Leader. He seems to delight in making statements aimed at playing to the uberliberals in the MSM who themselves are much more concerned about the criminals than the victims of crime. It is NOT up to us to "love a lout" – it is up to Government to rigourously enforce the law, to punish those young thugs that break it, and to ensure that the law-abiding can go about their daily business without fear of robbery or violence. But that would reek of traditonal Conservative values…. and so must be jettisoned as thoroughly modern Dave seeks his claim as the leftful successor to Blair as a new phony PM.
