Tory Blogged Anderson

Really, I keep looking at the new UK government covetously, like "I wish *I* had a government that talked like that." Latest instance, David Cameron in Turkey:
The Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla was completely unacceptable. And I have told PM Netanyahu, we will expect the Israeli inquiry to be swift, transparent and rigorous. Let me also be clear that the situation in Gaza has to change. Humanitarian goods and people must flow in both directions. Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp.
Then there's the fact that the Brits are actually using the occasion of a change of government to investigate how the Iraq war was promoted ... not to mention a torture inquiry.

The Dems are not even practicing good politics. All this seems likely to help keep Labour on the defensive, whereas by ruling out such proceedings up front, Obama has helped keep the GOP on offense against him.

... We must add that, even tho they won despite it, the Tories' "Cameron photo + text" poster should be a textbook example of how not to advertise in the Photoshop era.
