  • Britain has 12 months to save schools and NHS, David Cameron warns

    Telegraph ^ | 1/16/11 | James Kirkup
    The Prime Minister will use his first major speech of the year to initiate a new debate on public service reform, while defending controversial Coalition policies on schools and the NHS, and paving the way for more far-reaching reforms. The coming year will be critical for the Coalition's public service reforms, beginning a process that will bring about the "complete modernisation" of public services including health, education and justice, the Prime Minister will say. [Snip] Without change, children will be poorly educated, patients badly treated in the NHS and public faith in law and order will be further eroded, he
  • Who does CNN call when birds fall from the sky? Kirk Cameron....

    CNN needing an expert on the Apocalypse naturally invited Kirk Cameron, born again Christian and star of the Left Behind series, onto Anderson Cooper 360 discuss the phenomenon. Some people thought this was kind of weird…including Kirk Cameron. Video on the link... Cameron: “Well, I first think that they ought to call a veterinarian, not me. You know, I’m not the religious conspiracy theorist go-to guy particularly. But I think it’s really kind of silly to try to equate birds falling out of the sky with some kind of an end-times theory.”

    David Cameron told the U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan that the Labour government 'let in some crazies', leaked diplomatic documents have revealed. In secret meetings before becoming Prime Minister, he promised the Americans he would toughen policy towards Pakistan. Mr Cameron and George Osborne met Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to diplomatic cables made public by WikiLeaks. The Conservatives also promised the U.S. before the election that they would be tougher on Pakistan - because unlike Labour they did not depend on votes from people with Pakistani connections.

    David Cameron's Conservative coalition government took the bull by the horns last month and announced cuts of 82 billion pounds - a massive attack on the British welfare state. Predictably, the outcry from unions, and others affected has been something to behold. Time Magazine details the latest: "All the ingredients appear to be in place for a winter - and possibly even spring and summer - of unrest, as British students, workers and families start feeling the effects of the massive Ł82 billion ($148 billion) worth of cuts to public spending announced by the coalition government last month. There has...

    UKIP Leader Nigel Farage today reacted with disdain when he read the Government's draft EU Bill. "This piece of paper gives the country no protection at all," he said. "Only last weekend William Hague told us that there was no prospect of a referendum on Europe, despite this bill, because his Government would never sign Britain up to anything that would need one. "Now we learn that the Government reserves the right to decide what is, and what isn't a transfer of sovereignty, and even then it will take a vote in the House of Commons to offer a referendum....

    The One tried to warn us about shadowy foreigners interfering in our elections, didn’t he? And yet, we laughed at him. Who’s laughing now? I don’t know anything about the substance of the issue, though my inclination would be to assume Cameron’s full of it. But what’s interesting is that Cameron is a foreigner, a Canadian citizen, who withdrew his application for U.S. citizenship after Bush won reelection in 2004. So what business does he have telling Americans how to vote on anything? Do Americans appear in Canadian political ads? Good points, but this is a special case: (1) Cameron’s...

    David Cameron today defended the Government's plans to limit housing benefit, saying it was not fair for working people to see their taxes used to fund homes 'they couldn't even dream of'. The Prime Minister dismissed reports there could be a climbdown over the proposals, telling Labour leader Ed Miliband: 'We are going forward with all the proposals we put in the spending review and in the Budget'.

    DAVID Cameron would look to ban groups like the English Defence League if he wins the general election, he said during his latest visit to the Midlands yesterday. The Conservative leader made his pledge as he met employees at West Midlands Ambulance Service Depot in Dudley, following the Bank Holiday demonstrations by the group in the town, in a final attempt to convince voters to swing to Tory. Mr Cameron said: “The EDL are terrible people, we would always keep these groups under review and if we needed to ban them, we would ban them or any groups which incite...

    Britain's Conservative- led government inherited one of Europe's most debt-ridden economies. On Wednesday, Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne unveiled their plan to put the nation's fiscal "flat" in order. Their Comprehensive Spending Review pledges to eliminate Britain's structural deficit in this Parliament's lifetime. Unlike the French now rioting in the streets of Paris, the Brits are taking their fiscal medicine stoically. The CSR announces $127 billion (81 billion pounds) in cuts -- enough to slash government spending by nearly a fifth. With a few exceptions, the CSR represents a largely conservative agenda -- lowering government spending, cutting...

    Houston Chronicle ^ | 9/28/10 | KATE SHELLNUTT
    It's been more than two decades since Kirk Cameron, the teen heartthrob, became Kirk Cameron, the Christian actor. Cameron's conversion changed how he famously played Mike Seaver on Growing Pains and altered the path of his career, leading him to roles in faith-based films such as Left Behind and Fireproof, and his Christian TV program, The Way of the Master. During his 20-some years as a believer, evangelicalism in America has grown more politicized and skeptics have grown more vocal. Cameron, who will be speaking in Houston on Oct. 1, now finds himself called to point the country back to...

    Commentary ^ | 9/24/2010 | Max Boot
    American officials are right to be concerned about the further evisceration of British defense capabilities that is apparently planned by the Tory-Liberal Democratic coalition government. Britain has already seen the size of its armed forces shrivel since the end of the Cold War, but Prime Minister David Cameron and Defense Minister Liam Fox apparently have more cuts in the works, expected to be in the range of 10 to 20 percent. Defense spending as a percentage of GDP, already far below the U.S. level, is likely to fall under 2 percent, putting Britain in the same league as Italy, Spain,...

Here’s more from their story about Cameron's appearance at the conference: [...] Cameron and a host of other climate-change activists said there needs to be a broad educational campaign, one aimed at convincing voters and politicians that...

    David Cameron, Britain's new PM, is a clueless Islamist appeasing moonbat! Melanie Phillips hits the nail on the head. A brief excerpt: "Declaring himself a fervent supporter of Turkey’s bid to join the EU, Cameron declared that those who opposed this bid fell into one of three categories: 'protectionists; those who believed wrongly in a ‘clash of civilisations’ between east and west, whereas in fact Turkey can be a great unifier, because instead of choosing between East and West, Turkey has chosen both; or those who wilfully misunderstand Islam because they ... see no difference between real Islam and the...

He will claim that those who seek to block the incorporation of a Muslim nation into the 27-member EU are misguided and prejudiced. His words are likely to be construed as criticism of France and Germany, which both oppose the country's membership.

    Hoo boy, times sure have changed, haven’t they? Time was, when heads of state went to visit each other, they presented each other with meaningful and symbolic gifts, embodying not just the bounty and artistic abilities of the country bestowing the gifts, but also the importance and significance of the relationship between the visiting countries and their leaders. Possibly the best known gift of this type is the Resolute desk, a gift from Queen Victoria to President Hayes in 1880... Possibly the best known failure of this type of gift was President Obama’s gifts in kind to PM Brown... Which...

    The Prime Minister last night defiantly rejected U.S. criticism of the decision of Britain to tackle deficits with massive cuts and tax rises. David Cameron heightened tensions with President Barack Obama over spending cuts by calling for all major economies to take 'unavoidable' belt-tightening steps as quickly as possible. As the pair prepared to meet for the first time on the world stage, the Prime Minister went out of his way to point out that Britain had demonstrated with this week's emergency Budget that 'we will start to live within our means' He said all G20 countries had to 'start...
