Is Mr Cameron shooting his mouth?
Mr David Cameron’s critics including David Miliband, Britain’s ex-foreign secretary find him indiscreet and loud with his political comments whether at home or abroad. The problem in part lies in the fact that politicians as a group have become so maligned that it would be difficult for them to escape criticism regardless of the manner of their approach or stand to an issue. If for instance Mr Cameron had chosen to be less scathing and direct that would have been interpreted as being dithering, lacking conviction and not calling a spade a spade. Ambiguous statements which are characteristic of politicians are generally viewed as a wishy washy exercise attempting to keep everyone happy. It calls for courage and conviction to speak strongly and in no uncertain terms when it comes to major issues, which Mr Cameron has exhibited in good measure.
I for one would believe that there is something sincere and down to earth in Mr Cameron’s strong remarks whether in domestic or international issues. Such a manner of speaking may invite criticism from people long accustomed to polished, well rehearsed, neutral statements which are a mainstay of politicians. These statements conceal more than they reveal. While one may or may not agree with what Mr Cameron has to stay, there is something very candid in his statements that cannot be missed.
His comments on Gordon Brown encouraging cronyism and how his way of running the government reflected his own traits of being secretive, power hoarding and controlling and how lobbying is the next big scandal waiting to happen and observations on money buying power, power fishing for money and a cosy club at the top making decisions in their own interest come out as very strong statements and a personal attack on Mr Brown. But coming in the wake of a massive fake expenses claim by 3 labour MP’s who had produced false statements to fleece an already overburdened State exchequer to the tune of 6000 pounds and a Prime Minister dragging his feet on such a grave issue, these outbursts only reflect the deep anguish of a person deeply concerned and moved.
Mr Cameron was criticized for his comments that “Pakistan should stop exporting terror” during his recent visit to India. Viewed strictly in terms of diplomacy and state craft these comments may seem rather politically incorrect to make, especially when one is speaking from a country which is hostile to the country in question. But what does one call a country which has consistently supported terrorist camps in its territory, encouraged and helped terrorist outfits like the Lashkar-e-toiba, Al Qaeda etc through its intelligence agencies, given refuge to well known underworld don Ibrahim Dawood who has strong links to terrorist outfits. The involvement of Pakistan has been repeatedly and conclusively proven whether it was the attack of India’s parliament, the terrorist strike of Mumbai, the London Bombings and even 26/11, if this is not exporting terror then what is it??
Finally Mr Cameron’s observations in Turkey that Israel is making the Gaza a prison reflect what almost the whole world is expressing about Israel with the exception perhaps of the US. This strong criticism of Israel in fact has pushed Britain’s stock up in the world’s eyes; a world which has been long accustomed to a UK toeing the US line on everything.
It may be too early to sit in judgement on Mr Cameroon’s abilities or what his government will ultimately deliver but the man certainly comes out as someone who has his strong views and is only too willing to make it open.

Question by Yoshoku: How is Obama expected to react if David Cameron becomes PM? What’s your views on the relationship?
There’s been a lot of reports about the special relationship being dead but David Cameron is meant to be Pro American, at least more Pro American than is he European. Will this fix the relationship between the two countries or are things set to deteriorate even more?
Do you think Obama has destroyed Americans relationship with Britain or do you not think its as important in the modern world?
