Even When It’s Theresa May We Must Not Constrain Our PM From Taking Effective Military Action.

with one comment

I’d prefer Theresa May wasn’t in charge of putting out her own recycling, let alone the defence of our nation but those MPs and commentators calling for a vote in Parliament before military action are misguided and foolish.

It’s absurd to expect any prime minster to go to Parliament before acting on what may be an immediate threat to our nation or, indeed, to human life elsewhere.

It’s difficult to think of anyone more unsuitable to have their finger ‘on the button’ than Theresa May.  She’s a religious nutcase and shifts her position with the wind to suit her own political advantage.  Nevertheless, we just have to accept the fact that for now she is prime minister and she has to have the authority to act.

Whether we should attack the Syria government is another matter.  With the amount of disinformation coming from all sides it’s impossible for me to make a rational decision.  I don’t trust the Russians at all but then neither do I trust Mrs May nor the totally incredible Boris Johnson whose bluster and exaggeration has finally destroyed any confidence I had in him.

There’s disinformation from all sides on Syria, on the Salisbury nerve agent attack, even this morning from the Met Commissioner, Cressida Dick, on gangsters and violent crime in London.  The news is full of propaganda these days and both the BBC and the press are playing their own games. They’re all unreliable and untrustworthy.

What I am sure of is that our weak and pathetic MPs, the likes of Chuka Umunna and Ken Clarke, should have had the courage to deal with Assad back in 2013 when he first used chemical weapons and before Putin muscled in when the West was too timid to act.   The last thing we need now is to let them delay and bicker and score party political points off each other.

  1. Looks like the french, American and Britain are not going to do anything, this is a good thing as they more useless than the propaganda they peddle! That first chemical attack back in 2014 was no such thing, an ordinary missile hit a chemical stock pile, why there was chemicals there is anyone guess!
