Cameron: talking tough on talking tough on terror

The latest Dave Cameron classic press release spends half the space trying to sound tough on terrorism before… attacking politicians who talk tough on terrorism.

Interestingly, the original press notice differs in tone from the post-speech one on the Tories’ website. The missive sent out earlier today, announced that he will “call for a dedicated border security force and a new security minister” to “bring about a single minded focus to protecting Britain from terrorist threat.”

It said he’ll call for action to “remove unwanted and dangerous” foreign nationals“. He warned of thousands of terrorists who are “planning ways of causing mass casualties on the streets of Britain“. “Some are foreign” he deduced, “Some are British citizens… but all of them are inspired by terrorists and ideologies abroad.”

He then brazenly moved on to say that “politicians should never use national security for political advantage or use the issue to try to portray themselves as “tougher” than their opponents”

    Why do I think these statements will come back to haunt him?
