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.

Rupert Murdoch: If Scotland Votes to Split from UK, Cameron Will Have to Go

Sep 18 2014 3:58pm CDT | Source: Big Government

On Thursday’s broadcast of “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel, 21st Century Fox chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch weighed in on the pending Scotland independence vote. According to Murdoch, should Scotland split from the United Kingdom, it would probably mean the end for David Cameron’s reign as prime minister. “I think that if they lose it – if they are splintered, he will probably have to go,” Murdoch said. “I think there is about a 70 percent likelihood. And I say that after ...

In a 50-50 Dead Heat, The Fate of the UK Would Be Decided by... A Coin Toss?

Sep 18 2014 7:12am CDT | Source: Big Government

It sounds mad, but a toss of the coin could, technically, decide the fate of the United Kingdom and Scotland.  Oddly enough, even with polls as close as they currently are, the Edinburgh Agreement signed by David Cameron and Alex Salmond last year setting out the plans for today's referendum vote doesn't account for the fact that there may be an equal number of votes on both sides. Of course it is massively unlikely that both sides will ga ...

Exterminate the voodoo ISIS zombies

Sep 17 2014 6:36pm CDT | Source: WND

Quite honestly, I’m not shocked at all that so many apathetic Americans are not shocked over the ISIS voodoo Muslim monsters beheading people. The dumbing down of America has been on the runaway fast-track for more than 50 years and counting, just in time to brainwash unsuspecting sheep into voting for an America-hating Muslim community organizer dedicated to the fundamental transformation of the greatest nation on earth into some “ ...

What if the United States Lost Texas?

Sep 17 2014 4:40pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

There are plenty of things that President Obama has had to worry about since being re-elected president in 2012 -- a continuing malaise about the economy, world crises that pop up with wack-a-mole frequency, and a lower house that makes even the minimal level of government functioning almost impossible. What he doesn't have to worry about, however, is whether or not the United States will split apart, because red-state bile notwithstanding, most folks would rather hold their nose thr ...

As Independence Looms Large, the Centre Cannot Hold

Sep 17 2014 10:31am CDT | Source: Big Government

National independence movements are on the rise across Europe. From Scotland to Spain - as the European Union’s stranglehold hardens, demands for sovereignty are becoming even more vocal. In Scotland, a 300-year-old Union is under threat, as cession from the United Kingdom is seriously contemplated. In Spain, one million Catalonians marched against rule from Madrid. Even in Germany, the EU’s most committed member, a Eurosceptic movement is brewing: the small ‘Al ...

Spain's New Margaret Thatcher Plaza Vandalised... By Brits

It was lauded as the first, befitting tribute to the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, but only 24 hours after the Plaza was unveiled in the Spanish capital this week, it was vandalised, disgracefully, by Brits. Breitbart London exclusively revealed the plans for the Plaza earlier this week – and there have been calls for Britain to follow Spain's lead in honouring the life of one of Britain ...
