He has his moments.


‘Let me put it this way, buddy,’ he shouted, lifting the gun to his shoulder and aiming at the Iraqi’s head from a distance of a couple of feet. ‘If you don’t move, I’m going to shoot you!’ At this point, since it did not appear out of the question that there would indeed be a tragedy, I am afraid that I intervened. ‘I say, cool it,’ I said – or rather, croaked. Three pairs of US army shades turned on me, and a couple of American guns waggled discouragingly in my direction.

There is gunfire the whole time in Baghdad. It barks around every street corner. Every night is enlivened by the rippling and popping, as if someone were tearing a sheet a few feet away. Within the space of the last half-hour, I had slunk past a ten-year-old with an AK47 over his shoulder, chewing the fat with his dad in the door of the shop. Just five minutes ago I had flinched when another shopkeeper cocked his automatic in my face to show how he dealt with the plague of thieves. But in my three days in Baghdad, this was easily the scariest moment, and the one time I really wished I had bothered with the flak jacket kindly loaned to me by Fergal Keane of the BBC. ‘You!’ screamed an American, whose stitched helmet name-tape proclaimed him to be Kuchma, blood-type A neg. ‘Who are you? Go away! No, wait, give me that,’ he said, shaking with anger when he saw my camera. ‘Give me that or I will detain you.’

I refused; but it was only a couple of minutes before Kuchma and I had calmed each other down. He explained to me the huge pressures his men were under, trying to keep order in a city with no recognised authority, a gun under every Iraqi pillow, and with only a fraction of the troops necessary. I apologised, as we shook hands, for accidentally interfering with his work. I gabbled some congratulations on the amazing achievement of his men and the rest of the American forces.

It wasn’t just that he had the gun and I didn’t. I meant my congratulations, and I still do. Like everyone in Baghdad, Kuchma asked what the hell I was doing there.
www.spectator.co.uk...

What the hell was he doing there? He went to some ministry within a very short time of the first bombing of Baghdad. I think it was in the first three days. He stood around outside, surprised there were no officials there to talk to. Americans turned up armed to the teeth and treated him like a visitor from Mars. He bumbled off disappointed that no-one else thought they could just pick up the pieces and carry on.

We can laugh but I doubt many of us could match his effort.

Strongest cabinet I have ever seen. Gives me hope we will properly shake off the Euro fascists.
Well done May - great start.

Its ceremonial.

She doesn't have a choice.

No monarch has ever refused.

To do so would likely end the monarchy.

Yes, in constitutional theory it is still "Her Majesty's Government", and she invites one person to form it for her.
In practice, ever since Queen Anne's time, kings have found it necessary to appoint a person who can win the necessary votes in the House of Commons.
Since Victoria's time, the Commons has normally been organised enough to agree among themselves on someone who can win the necessary majority, so the actual choice is taken out of the monarch's hands. That's what was happening this week.

Aww that is just mean to Greek Banker Monkey's, Fat Cat Brown was one of them Thatcherite in sheep's clothing called the NEW labour Blairite's whom stole the wind from the Tory's sail's and betrayed the Labour core voter's.

Now they are at it again, Corbyn may not be the best but at least he is true labour but I really want that old fellow Dennis Skinner in charge.

To be fair recent political history from the left, Dennis Skinner called it like it was, David Cameron was Dodgy Dave to him and he even got sent out of the house for calling him it to his face and proving that NEW Labour are a bunch of hypocrite's whom are not Labour at all not one of them walked out with him in support as they should have.

The fact is that Corbyn (in spite of the wet lettuce thing he has going on) is likely to win the Labour leadership anyway as he still represent's the Genuine Labour voters while the majority of Labour MP's are not elected because of who they are or what they want to represent but because they are called Labour and most Labour voter's would not piss on a Tory if he was on fire - they may actually even add some wood to the flame's as for once the Tory would be doing something useful for them.

You know Corbyn never really wanted to campaign for us to stay in the EU, he only did it because of Party pressure from the NEW Labourite's, Corbyn believe's in democratic socialism and true representation of the electorate not the vested interest's of his MP's, Eagle will be a disaster as will the other contenders when the New Labour party rig the in party leadership election to get rid of Old Labour Corbyn as I am absolutely 100 percent positive they shall indeed do.

If Corbyn had been leader of the Labour party at the last election the Majority of Scot's would have voted Labour Not SNP and Labour may even have gained seat's not lost them all but of course New Labour are all about copying 1980's Thatcherism with it's Yuppie mentality and walking all over the poor and the Scot's do not like that one bit, indeed if you look at the SNP they are preaching like OLD LABOUR up in Scotland but twisting it to go with there independance rhetoric BUT at least they are not the corrupt self serving hypocrites we have to suffer down here.


Seriously I think May will accelerate there push for independance though I do think she is infinitely better than Cameron and indeed likely to be better than Blair ever was though she is coming in at a time when the economy is already in a shambles and of course she was NOT elected by the General public so will face some resentment and not just because she is a Tory, Actually I think she may be more Conservative than Tory and by that I mean that I see Tory's as the out of touch Hooray Harry's and Bullingdon Idiot's while I see the Conservatives as a the Left of the so called Conservative Party.

Either way I am sad to say the UK is finished because of Cameron whom like Dennis Skinner said has been the Most Divisive prime minister to hit this country since before the second world war (As well as one of the most self serving and idiotic prat's, culling our armed forces then sending out lad's into combat zone's, culling our benefit's and causing massive numbers of poverty related suicides and death's).

But May I think has actually got a heart at least.

Well he may bring some common sense to foreign affairs. Boris understands how the EU has forced Russia's hand in eastern Ukraine. He also speaks highly of Putin. I believe he will be good for redeveloping our relations with what was becoming a major export market for the UK before silly sanctions were imposed. Boris meets Lavrov should be an interesting experience

He is a bit eccentric and mad in the public eye and I've never been quite sure if that's on purpose or a flaw of his. People are literally judging a book by it's cover though, a lot of people are thinking he is just a bit too much for such a job. I on the other hand, I'm thinking about his stance on world affairs, human rights, sovereignty... Heck all sorts and the more I think about it the more I think he is well suited. He isn't exactly conservative with his views, he does share them freely and I've never really disagreed with what he has said. Nor has he ever been afraid to practice what he preaches, he should be a breath of fresh air on how we deal with them jolly old foreigners.

Though I reckon he won't be peddling to work anymore.

Though he has tried I wouldn't say the ship Obama has been sailing has been keeping steady knots, the numbers of US soldiers on Iraqi turf is slowly growing is it not?

He used it as a derogatory slur to call into question Obama's opinion regarding the UK. Somehow suggesting his roots made him dislike the UK.

Do you know the story I am referring to or was your response one of those quick and smart comments?

I guess the latter, I didn't understand the context and didn't know it was specific. That is derogatory in my eyes if what you say is true, colonialism belongs in the past and if I get it right Obama wouldn't be a fan of a few visitors to Kenya over the years if said slur is anything to go by not just the British. I can't say I see evidence of that.

"May gives Johnson and Hammond key posts", shouldn't that be Clarkson and Hammond, or am I watching the wrong show?

Seriously though, this is looking better than I expected, Boris would make the best of whatever post he was given.
