Was anyone else uncomfortable about the posturing of David Cameron and William Hague in Tripoli today? Was it really necessary for them to enter into that rabble and what were they trying to prove?
It is not yet all over. They have not yet caught Colonel Gadaffi or his son Saif. The fighting is still continuing and yet Cameron and Hague are attending a victory party? OK perhaps I am being mealy mouthed but I hate to see people gloating. We don't yet know the make up or the intentions of the rebel government. We don't yet know who is actually in charge. We have in effect taken sides in Bedouin politics so we backed one side against another or one tribe against another.
I realise that Libyan oil is important to us but when I saw Cameron today I had a flashback to Blair and Gaddafi. I find that happening more and more. Blair was never a socialist and Cameron is not a conservative but both know how to tweak an audience. It is not a route that Cameron should go down beause I still believe that one day the courts will catch up with Blair. We all know that he was guilty of so much but the lawyers may have to decide what to charge him with! It is a conundrum but how about my suggestion of treason.
