The 'targeted killing' policy is a seductive one - it promises accuracy and zero civilian casualties. Yet the US experience shows this to be false... With US military figures now warning their programme has been a failure, the PM's unilateral decision to adopt this model is truly bizarre.
How damaging is it? As Newsnight pointed out, history could remember Cameron as it does Catherine the Great, who many think died while copulating with a horse, despite that not being true. Who knows how legends are made, but the public mood may be more forgiving for the PM.
Will someone please remind me when humans suddenly became intrinsically ranked in terms of importance? Oh wait, this never happened! So who gave the right for people to dehumanise these refugees from the most tormented homelands and turn them into an almost animal-like infection?
Through consistently denying the benefits that come with legalising and regulating them and persisting in an expensive and useless war against them, you only prolong and worsen the issue.
It is the hypocrisy of this policy - where our Prime Minister, and other politicians, have committed the same actions as the tens of thousands of people we criminalise every year - that should drive the basis for reform. The saddest thing is that Cameron knows this.
Corbyn's questions to the Prime Minister will continue to focus single-mindedly on Conservative policies. It may not be the first time Cameron has been embarrassed about his student days, but it is perhaps not the last time he will have reason to be grateful that Corbyn is a better man than him.
Oh what we all would've given to have been a fly on the wall when David Cameron's PR team approached his office this weekend.
As much as I want to be there for our Prime Minister, as much as I understand what it's like to be marginalised for a silly intoxicated act, he may have dipped his penis in a dead pig's mouth. There is no coming back from that.
Something has been happening in politics in the UK this summer. At first, it seemed inconsequential: a bearded rebel entered the Labour leadership rac...
People questioned whether Cameron had been talking of a 'Pig Society' all along.And it's inspired a viral trend that's crisscrossed the globe, with the universal appeal of a politician caught with their pants down.It was amazing. What a time to be alive. But as the dust begins to settle - it's occurred to me that the entire thing stinks to high heaven.
We were told it wasn't going to be covered so we skipped the story. The Cameron biog that contains the "pig-gate" story is being serialized in The Daily Mail. Frankly, any day that I don't talk about or have to say the words: The Daily Mail; The Mail On Sunday or Mail Online - is a good day.
Skiing for my country during the Sochi Paralympic Games was one of the proudest moments of my life, but it is not an opportunity I would have had were it for experiencing one of the most frightening experiences a person can go through - losing your sight...
Syria's quite a large country; how are we going to sustain a campaign fighting on several fronts? If we are going up against the Syrian government AND Islamic State we would need quite a lot of soldiers on the ground...
In my last blog I noted how public opinion appeared to be changing around the issue of refugees following the tragic death of Aylan Kurdi. Even Th...
What encapsulates all of Corbyn's shortcomings in yesterday's PMQs is a lack of drive and ambition. He seems quite content to remain as a critic, rather than a leader, to react, rather than seize initiative, and to create a socialist movement, rather than a socialist country. He is Labour's accidental leader. As if he went out in search for a Cheeseburger and ended up dining at the Ritz.
Just as America has become the country where the first "selfie" political candidate - Donald Trump - has emerged, we here in the UK are experiencing a new paradigm, too. I'll call it: "Real". It has begun - as always - with the young. A "zero hour contract" reality; seven professions in a working life; eternal debt; possible no home ownership, all of these factors are very real for a generation that will not only be long-lived, but the ultimate carers of an ageing population growing larger by the year. After the winter snows melt, and the first flowers of spring push through the soil, Jeremy Corbyn may be gone. But the Disrupter has made his mark.
