“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens ‘as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone’,” said David Cameron “It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance” he added on his unbelievable and stupid attack on tolerance.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4 later, however, the Home Secretary Theresa May completely contradicted him and said that tolerance and rule of law were ‘British values’. If tolerance and rule of law are British values and David Cameron stands against them, does that mean that David Cameron stands against British values and should not be tolerated by the British people? If Home Secretary Theresa May and the Conservative party believe rule of law is a British value why are they trying so hard to abolish human right laws, instead of following and abiding them? These are two actions that prove that the Conservative party do stand against some British values, which must mean they the Conservative party are the extremists, in their own words.
On one level I agree with David Cameron, Britain is too tolerant sometimes. The British public tolerate and ignore the corruption, greed and extremism of the British government, we ignore and tolerate their lack of respect for people and their human rights, which they are desperate to destroy. We ignore and tolerate their MPs expenses, secret deals with the media, attacks on freedom of speech (another Great British value) and their general bad and intolerant governing.
Due to the unexpected and dodgy looking election results Britain has five more years of listening to old fashioned, right wingers that claim to represent us spewing hate filled nonsense like this.
I can’t remember him explaining his hate for British tolerance on the TV debates on the build up to the general election, he spent most of that time making promises he has no intention of keeping and telling the Daily Mail, The Sun and other British newspapers what to write judging by the BULLSHIT they wrote. What next? Britain shows too much empathy to people in need, empathy cost the tax payer 15 billion pound a year, that don’t even count sympathy. I am sure David Cameron would like to see things like tolerance, empathy, sympathy and love done away with, its an unnecessary strain that costs too much money, time and effort but unfortunately he is stuck with them!
Tolerance does not always piss David Cameron off, for instance David Cameron claimed that Great Britain should tolerate oil rich Saudi Arabia despite some of their extremism, the extremism and war crimes of Israel should also be tolerated according to our deluded Prime Minister.
