I haven't checked, but wasn't Cameron due to make a speech today, outlining details - and responses to - the new perceived threat to UK security by British Islamic fundamentalists , returning from sunnier climes?

Re: British lion shows some leadership

Link does not contain speech. It's still going on live. I suppose each and everyone one of them needs to say something. I will try to get a replay, after they all run out of wind. Thx.

A lot of nonsense really. Most of it will probably prove to be illegal and unenforceable which means that he really has not addressed the problem in a serious way.

Put it looks good and it will help electioneering and sure can't he blame it on the EU when it does not pan out.

Re: British lion shows some leadership

D.C 's proposals weren't exactly clear. A lot of detail in policy needs to be worked out before giving speeches he cannot back up now or in the near future.

Re: British lion shows some leadership

With the security service issuing a red alert of imminent terrorist attack in the UK, I would prefer Cameron to cancel the passports of these presumed murdering ex-pats in the IS.

The UK might later get a smack on the wrist from the ECHR, after refusing them entry. His decision can always be reversed should a mistake have been made, but you cannot easily reverse a real attack and the terrible consequences.

Re: British lion shows some leadership

DC looks and sounds good while aiding his opposition to error. But it would be even better if he would actually accomplish something. I don't think he will make it through the next time around. There are signs that many conservatives will be revolting.

Re: British lion shows some leadership

Anti-terror plans: 'Difficulties' with Cameron's plans

Quote:
There are "significant difficulties" with preventing British-born terror suspects from re-entering the country, the reviewer of terror laws has said.
That did not take long.... All that remains is for a claim that the EU will not let him....

Re: British lion shows some leadership

Deputy prime minister thinks otherwise,

in any case, just ban them and worry about the consequences later. They might even be killed before they can get to a lawyer...

oh yeah, he needs to put some passionate whipped-up drama into the daily rounds of political ramblings if he is to keep the pre-election pressures at bay.. damn that heel-snapping, beer-swilling, twinkly-eyed, anti-immigrant UKIP s-stirrer.. and as for Bombastic Boris.. er..um, cough, splutter.. it must be all getting a bit much in Westminster these days.

Anyways, getting back to home grown terrorists - the topic is surely set in AOB on the agenda list, but only to be discussed after all the biscuits are eaten, naturally..

Re: British lion shows some leadership

DC should stop droning on and send in the drones or do something. He has to ramp up the rhetoric at the NATO summit in Wales. 61 leaders need to start leading.
