You are the Tory toff who threatened to change everything when you suggested that in the event of a hung parliament you would join a coalition with Ming and his cohorts thus condemning the war in Iraq.
Alas for good intentions you end up supporting the war thus aligning yourself with Tony Blair, the war criminal, serial killer and barbarian who you vowed to oppose.
Jonathan Ross had sized you up perfectly on Saturday night when he told you that you should have opposed the war and all you could bleat about was the necessity to remove Saddam Hussein, whereon Ross suggested that it was not the job of Bush and Blair to do this.
Your fall from grace grieves me not least because you have been principled enough to reply to my emails whereas others, notably the Lords of the Press, Jeremy Paxman, Andrew Marr, Jon Snow and Kirsty Wark have taken the cowardly and unltimately self-defeating method in these days of BLOGS of refusing to reply to my accusations that they have not challenged Blair on the question of the war in Iraq.
Another reason for my regret is that you have betrayed the very many Tories who opposed the war from the beginning; remember that more Tories opposed the war than Labour supporters who supported it.
I mention two in particular, Henry Porter who was among the first to show that a vengeful Tony Blair was proposing to destroy all our civil liberties and reduce us to the condition of the US where any criticsm of the war policy is met with prosecution for supporting terrorists.
The second Tory is Geoffrey Wheatcroft who uncovered the roots of British imperial philosophy. This he traced back to the radical English historian of the 1930s, AJP Taylor who wrote, ‘Europeans instinctively believe that Europe has achieved the highest form of civilisation ever known’. With that, of course goes the corollary that they were entitled to take any means necessary to spread this ‘civilisation’.
Today brings news from America as well as Britain that Blair will never resign, cannot resign, because once he becomes an ordinary mortal he will be a legitimate target for patriots/terrorists and like the odious Dr.Kissinger of the former Bush Vietnam regime, he will become a virtual prisoner in his own country.
So this is the pickle you find yourself in for supporting the war in Iraq, Mr.Cameron. It is still not too late for you to return to the world of sanity. And please continue your civilised way of replying to my correspondence.
