Cameron's crippling personality flaws

There has been much written and said about the Cameron 1940 gaffe descibed in our posting below of yesterday.

Cameron clearly has no feel for history and what is worse lacks the ability to put himself in another's shoes, a fatal flaw in any intenational situation let alone negotiations. His comparative youth and complete lack of any leadership experience comingh on top of his insular upbringing and lack of proper foreign travel compounds the danger this represents for his country. The fact that the same failings seem to exist across the entire coalition cabinet.

The definitive work on the Anglo/US relationship in 1940 is in my view "Roosevelt & Churchill" by David Stafford, my edition is by Abacus History ISBN 0-349-11282-7 and interested readers should go to page 47.

In the meantime I offer some quotes, from here, to help my readers put themselves in the shoes of an ordinary British citizen in 1940 as we faced Hitler and his Nazis alone.

United Kingdom - World War 2 Flag "My strength has now been reduced to the equivalent of 36 squadrons...we should be able to carry on the war single-handed for some time if not indefinitely."
Sir Hugh Dowding - RAF Fighter Command - May 1940
United Kingdom - World War 2 Flag "We must be very careful not to assign to this deliverance the attributes of a victory. War's are not won by evacuations."
Winston Churchill - To Parliament - 4th June 1940
Germany - World War 2 Flag "Dunkirk has fallen... with it has ended the greatest battle of world history. Soldiers! My confidence in you knew no bounds. You have not disappointed me."
Adolf Hitler - Order of the Day - 5th June 1940
Italy - World War 2 Flag "Mussolini is quite humiliated because our troops have not moved a step forward. Even today they have not succeeded in advancing and have halted in front of the first French fortification which put up some resistance."
Count Ciano - Italian Foreign Minister (written in his diary) - 21st June 1940
Germany - World War 2 Flag "My Luftwaffe is invincible...And so now we turn to England. How long will this one last - two, three weeks?"
Hermann Goring - June 1940
United Kingdom - World War 2 Flag "Like so many of our people, we have now had a personal experience of German barbarity which only strengthens the resolution of all of us to fight through to final victory."
King George VI - September 1940
Italy - World War 2 Flag "Never has a military operation been undertaken so much against the will of the commanders."
Count Ciano - Italian Foreign Minister (Commenting on the Italian Advance into Egypt) - September 1940
United Kingdom - World War 2 Flag "Never in the field of human conflict, has so much, been owed by so many, to so few!"
Winston Churchill - September 1940
Germany - World War 2 Flag "Once more a red fire blows steeply upwards...the factory will do no more work for Herr Churchill...tomorrow morning Coventry will lie in smoke and ruins."
Josef Goebbels - Ministry of Propaganda - September 1940
Italy - World War 2 Flag "Fuhrer, we are on the march! Victorious Italian troops crossed the Greco-Albanian frontier at dawn today!"
Benito Mussolini - (to Adolf Hitler) 28th October 1940
USA - World War 2 Flag "Nothing would please me better than if they would give me three months and then attack here."
General Douglas Macarthur - Supreme Allied Commander of South-West Pacific - (Speaking of the Philippines) 5th December 1940
United Kingdom - World War 2 Flag "Singapore... could only be taken after a siege by an army of at least 50,000 men... its not considered possible that the Japanese...would embark on such a mad enterprise."

Put these against what David Cameron stated yesterday I think it's important in life to speak as it is, and the fact is that we are a very effective partner of the US, but we are the junior partner'. 'We were the junior partner in 1940 when we were fighting the Nazis.'

Against that I suppose the only flag that could be added would be the yellow stars on the blue background of the EU, in recogntion of our complete surrender to the concepts and tyranny against which our forebears so bravely fought alone during 1940.

Cameron knows no recent history! Clearly he is unfit for office.

David Cameron, Britain's Prime Minister, believes Britain was a junior partner to the USA in fighting the Nazis in 1940.

The USA was not even in the war at that point as Britain then stood alone in a completely subdued, quaking and mostly conquered Europe.

What a shameful lack of knowledge for this supposed leader of the Nation. Not even knowing on the just passed 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain that we then fought alone.

Read the report from from here and consider the utter deceit in Hague's recent Foreign Office speech.
