International commentators of all shapes and sizes waited with anticipation for David Cameron to go to war in Algeria.
Said one onlooker: ‘Throughout history this has been the pattern, hated leaders, just like David Cameron, have gone to war to gather support from their own people. We see no reason why this jumped-up Old Etonian should break the trend.’
This month the world had a minor stroke as David Cameron did not use the Mali crisis as a chance for war. After the mayhem of that particular incident all were expecting him to make his move now.
News just in folks, apparently David Cameron will not go to war to gain popularity. This won’t go down well with Niall Ferguson, I can tell you.
Well, its hard to tell when the international community will recover from this shock, readers, but it won’t be soon.
All around me there is panic and confusion, is this the sort of rebellious attitude we can expect from Cameron in months to come?
I certainly hope not.
