Government by deceit: Not a day goes by without the Coalition breaking election pledges... - 0 views

  • If David Cameron, a man who has many sterling qualities and does have the capacity for greatness, does turn out to be a true heir to Blair, in the sense that he's just as deceitful, then it will be a calamity for Britain.

It would suggest that something terrible happens to British politicians when they get office and they at once start to lie and cheat.
