I see that David Cameron and Hillary Clinton are holding talks about the security situation in Egypt, so will someone please tell them to mind their own bloody business !
It’s been a long time since Britain sent gun boats up the Nile and the last time we meddled in that country’s affairs it led to one of the most important and controversial events in British history. Not only did ‘The Suez Crisis’ result in deep political and public division in Britain, it also caused international uproar and pissed off US President Dwight Eisenhower.
America may still be able to wave a big stick, but Britain’s days of ‘sabre rattling’ are long gone.
Let us hope that the Egyptian people find a solution to their own problems without resorting to more violence, and that Hillary stops talking out of her arse and David stops believing that …
… anyone is listening to him !
