Where is David Cameron?

Matthew Steeples suggests that David Cameron needs to show his hand

 

Yesterday, David Cameron attended the wedding of his wife’s half-brother, Jake Astor. Unlike others, we have no problem with that but at a time when Isis have beheaded a British hostage and when the Union teeters on a knife-edge, many have called for him to reassess his priorities.

David Cameron needs to stand up and show himself as the leader he could be

Two hours after the video of hostage David Haines’ execution was posted online, Cameron arrived back at Downing Street but despite him tweeting about his “heart [going] out” to the family of the latest victim of Islamic State extremism, Haines’ own words are what will be remembered. On tape, the aid worker stated:

 

“My name is David Cawthorne Haines. I would like to declare that I hold you David Cameron entirely responsible for my execution”.

 

As with James Foley and Steven Sotloff, this hostage was undoubtedly forced to say what he did but what the past weeks have proved is that something has to be done about the extremists in our midst. We cannot sit by idly and assume they will go away. With every day that passes, this force for evil grows stronger and Cameron’s government needs to show fortitude and stand up to it.

 

Meanwhile, back home the ‘Better Together’ campaign has been left in the hands of Gordon Brown – the man who sold our gold. Could not a worse advocate have been chosen to save Britain?

David Cameron, it could be argued, is doing the right thing in keeping away from the campaign to save the Union given many Scots, as he himself said, want to “give the ‘effing Tories a kicking” but he should remember that the full (though sadly little used) name of his party is the Conservative and Unionist Party. As Thursday’s elections loom, the British public need to be reminded of this and equally, Cameron should be shouting from the rooftops what a disaster Scotland leaving the Union would be.

 

Theresa May has now chosen two inappropriate candidates to investigate alleged VIP paedophile rings. She plainly has shown very poor judgement and should resign

In London, Cameron needs to show leadership in another arena also. The Steeple Times has campaigned for a proper investigation into what went on at Elm Guest House and elsewhere since our inception and we truly believe that the shameful cover up of what politicians and others allegedly did to innocent children needs to be cleared up for once and for all.

 

Yet again this week, however, despite revelations last Sunday clearly linking the head of the inquiry to a key figure in the controversy, Leon Brittan, Fiona Woolf remains in her job. Mrs Woolf, it was reported this morning, not only missed the first meeting of the inquiry into alleged VIP paedophile rings on Friday because she was on a business trip to Africa, but it now turns out she also sat in the same magistrates’ court as Lord Brittan’s wife for three years.

 

Though the hapless Home Secretary Theresa May was responsible for this (and the previous inappropriate appointment of Baroness Butler-Sloss as head of the inquiry), it is time David Cameron took charge. Mrs May is frankly one of the worst Home Secretary’s Britain has had in decades and she and Mrs Woolf must go.

 

This week, David Cameron has the opportunity to regain control of Great Britain. He must send out a clear message that Isis will not beat us, that the Union must be saved and that the investigation into historic abuse will not be covered up any longer.

 

David Cameron, this country needs you.
