The Moral Imperative

with 13 comments

When innocent men, women and children are being slaughtered and we have the ability to intervene then we are obliged to do so.  Anyone who stands against that, who quibbles over the difficulties and the consequences is a coward.  This is an absolute.

If a man stands in front of you and puts a gun to the head of a child you must stop him.  I don’t care whether his name is Gaddafi, Mugabe, Bush, Cameron or James Bond.   There are times when a line must be drawn.  A position that must be held, at any cost.

Our dreadful tolerance of the atrocities in Bahrain and of the violent repression in Saudi Arabia cannot be an excuse for failing to act in Libya.  Why do we maintain any military if we are not prepared to use it for defence against evil?

We must reject, even despise, those that stand in the way of doing, simply, what is right.

Brokenshire Resigns. New Drugs Minister Appointed.

with 15 comments

James “Broken Britain” Brokenshire has resigned as drugs minister in order to spend more time with his family.  The new drugs minister is Muammar Muhammad al-Gaddafi, a long time friend of the British government, well known for his intelligent and forward thinking policies and a legend amongst freedom loving people throughout the world.

David Cameron, commenting on Brokenshire’s resignation said:

“James has done a wonderful job spreading government propaganda and misinformation.  Without his tireless and courageous work we would have been unable to restrain the public outcry against our drugs policy.  If it wasn’t for James, thousands of medicinal cannabis users might have found relief from their pain and suffering and strayed away from the poisonous and harmful products that our friends in Big Pharma supply.  It was only through James’ personal guidance that I was able recently to dismiss any idea of legalising cannabis during my YouTube interview.  James told me the right lies to tell. I couldn’t have done it without him.”

David Oliver, Head of the Drug Strategy Unit at the Home Office, welcomed the new minister saying:

“I look forward to working with Muammar Gaddafi.  He has exactly the right experience and personal qualities needed in a British drugs minister.  He is a denier of science.  He has no interest in the will of the people and he can tell bare faced lies without even blinking.  I cannot think of anyone more suitable for the post”
