"Barking For Cameron's Blood?"


" There are no true friends in politics. We are all sharks circling, and waiting, for traces of blood to appear in the water"
So wrote pompous Tory politician Alan Clark in his diary of November 30th 1990.

I just hope David Cameron's blood swirls quickly out-of-sight down his elegant West London plughole ( after revelations by James Hanning and Francis Elliott in their book " Cameron: The Rise Of The New Conservative") .

BECAUSE haven't politicians got Better Things to do with their time rather than circling each other like sharks or baying for each other's blood like a pack of hounds?
Better Things like:sorting schools hospitals transport crime old people young people...?
Better Things like:sorting this wonderful planet of ours...?
Yes, Better Things like sorting this world of ours that deserves to stay existing, deserves to be kept safe at all costs...

Whatever one thinks of Cameron as PM or the Tories as a party or schoolboys smoking joints, his indiscretion was a mere scratch on The Body of Politics..
The baying hounds should behave as mongrels; lick each other's wounds and wag their tails in comradeship.
And hunt TOGETHER for peace in our world..

Well put - There is a tide turning globally I believe - excuse unintended pun - and o course it is to do with concerns for our earth - and all the silly nonsense you speak of, is just not appropriate. Thanks for speaking up, we all need to do this and vote politicians into power who have their eyes on what is important; urgent in fact; not their own egos.

CB: Thanks for this.
Some Good News today:
Labour's John Reid called Cameron's " indiscretion" ( that word's debatable, of course) a "So What?" moment...Hopefully politicians/celebs are to be " permitted" a past.
People with pasts are often the most colourful life enhancing of folk...and frequently they become society's most dependable of pillars. I can give you some addresses...!
