Parliament Slams David Cameron’s Role in Obama’s Libyan ‘S*** Show’

The Foreign Affairs Select Committee of the British Parliament has published a scathing report on David Cameron’s intervention in Libya, finding it was “carried out with no proper intelligence analysis, drifted into an unannounced goal of regime change and shirked its moral responsibility to help reconstruct the country following the fall of Muammar Gaddafi,” as the UK Guardian puts it.

David Cameron’s Dodgy Honours List: A Fitting Epitaph For A Rubbish Regime

I can think of only two explanations for David Cameron’s dodgy resignation honours list, in which he has showered knighthoods and gongs on all manner of cronies, lickspittles and catamites, ranging from his wife’s fashion stylist to the Labour apparatchik who ran the mendacious and unsuccessful Remain campaign, and which one former cabinet minister has described as “sticking two fingers up” at the Tory party.
