Cameron leaves official red box unattended in train

Sep 9 2013, 7:36am CDT | by IANS

London, Sep 9 (IANS) Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron courted controversy after he briefly left his official ministerial red box unattended on the table of a train carriage.

London, Sep 9 — Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron courted controversy after he briefly left his official ministerial red box unattended on the table of a train carriage.

Cameron moved away from his table, leaving the red box behind with the key still in it and with no security cover, the Daily Mirror reported Monday.

A fellow passenger on the train took a photograph of the red box which was published by the newspaper.

"I carried on walking through the train and two carriages on I saw the PM's red briefcase on a table all alone. First of all I couldn't believe that Cameron was on the train unprotected, I just walked past him," the report quoted the passenger as saying.

"I could have quite easily have damaged it or scratched it or run off with it. And above all I couldn't believe the key was in the lock. It was just sitting there. I could probably have run off with it if I'd wanted to. But instead I took a photo," the passenger said.

Criticising the PM for leaving the official case behind, former deputy prime minister John Prescott told the Daily Mail: "I'm staggered that a prime minister should be so slack about looking after government secrets.

"The box could have contained detailed confidential intelligence about Syria. I never let mine out of my sight... The guy needs to get a grip," Prescott said.

Meanwhile, the prime minister's office has denied reports that Cameron breached security by leaving his ministerial box unattended.

"The box was not left unattended. The prime minister's security detail was there at all times," the Daily Mirror quoted a 10 Downing Street spokesman as saying Sunday.

Cameron Secretly Planning to Turn Private Landlords into a Border Police Force

Jul 31 2014 8:16am CDT | Source: Big Government

David Cameron wants to put Britain first.  Not by giving the British people a long awaited referendum on their future in Europe, nor by cutting taxes and protecting civil liberties, but by promising for perhaps the sixth time over the past year to break European law by limiting benefits for EU migrants in the UK after three months.  Not all benefits, mind, such as in-work benefits and child benefit, the ones that cost the UK taxpayer £5 billion ...

Hungarian PM Vows to End 'Liberal Democracy'

Jul 31 2014 6:09am CDT | Source: Big Government

The left wing across Europe is in uproar after Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban declared he wanted to build an "illiberal" state based on the Hungarian nation "while of course respecting the values of Christianity, freedom and human rights." The global financial crisis in 2008 showed that "liberal democratic states can't remain globally competitive," Orban said, according to Bloomberg. In ...

One of President Obama's closest friends on the world stage, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would be "Glad to return" an award given to him by a Jewish American group in 2004.

Britain's Hammond: Perfect Example of Hypocrisy Towards Israel

Jul 30 2014 10:02am CDT | Source: Big Government

Newly-installed British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond criticized Israel on Wednesday for defending itself against Hamas terror, in terms that neatly encapsulated western elites' hypocrisy towards the State of Israel. Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today, Hammond suggested--without evidence--that Israel might have committed war crimes by using force that is disproportionate to its military objectives.  Hammond added: "Israelis have ...

Britain Still Handing Out £5bn In Tax Credits To Immigrants

Jul 30 2014 8:19am CDT | Source: Big Government

Britain is still set to hand out £5bn in tax credits to immigrants, despite David Cameron's crackdown on benefit tourism. Tax credits top up the salary of low paid workers, they are effectively 'in work' benefits and can far outstrip the wages of their recipient. According to the Daily Mail official figures show that 415,000 foreign nationals are claiming tax credits. The total bill is fifty times larger than the savings on benefits for immigrant that ...

Labour MEP: White People are Racist

Jul 25 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: Big Government

This week in the European Parliament, the Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) met to discuss the EU's budget for the next year. What at first looked like a dull meeting of MEPs, became a more exciting after a Labour MEP insulted a large portion of the EU's citizens. UKIP MEP Louise Bours for the North West of England, had no doubt alienated herself from many of her colleagues by saying she was "b ...

The EU's Tactics Over Ukraine Are Fatally Flawed

Jul 25 2014 7:45am CDT | Source: Big Government

Whatever your position on the Ukraine crisis, it has exposed the utter impotence of the EU and the fatal flaw behind the concept of the European super-state. The sanctions that EU leaders have threatened to impose - when they can get around to it - are feeble and look set to impact on Britain more heavily than any of our EU "partners". Given ample warning, Putin’s cronies have already been able to move their money elsewhere, while Russia has now threatened British interes ...
