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.

Wednesday on Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show," editor of "The Weekly Standard" Bill Kristol called President Barack Obama's response to the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS "pathetic" "childish" and akin to many nations Nazi appeasement in the 1930's.

I've never considered Cameron to a particularly strong leader, but at least he has some sense of decorum. Via NRO's Jim Geraghty: “U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron cut short his summer vacation to return to London and chair urgent meetings on the threat posed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria, calling the video ‘shocking and depraved.’” Compare to our own president, who returned to Martha's Vineyard Tuesday evening after spending a puzzling two days in Washi ...

Farage: Use 144-Year-Old Law Act to Strip Jihadists of British Citizenship

Aug 20 2014 7:59am CDT | Source: Big Government

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has called on Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron to take a stand on the Islamic State and strip UK nationals who are fighting abroad of their citizenship and cancel passports using the little-known Foreign Enlistment Act of 1870. The move would bring the United Kingdom into line with close ally Australia, whose Prime Minister Tony Abbott has sworn “to do our damndest” to ensure “trained killer… returning Jihadis ...

Dear Philip Hammond, What EXACTLY is a 'Moderate Jihadist'?

Aug 20 2014 6:13am CDT | Source: Big Government

What exactly is a "moderate jihadist"? Is it someone who tweets photographs of severed heads but fights shy of getting his hands bloody? Someone who inclines towards enslaving captured women and children rather than burying them alive? One who only executes Yazidis but not Christians? Whatever, we can probably agree that UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond made a serious error when applying that unfortunat ...

Islamic State: The Monster Western Intervention Created

Aug 19 2014 2:41pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Before Britain gets involved in another intervention against Sunni insurgents in Iraq, David Cameron should read the Koran. Verse 216, Chapter 2 says: "You may hate a thing which is good for you, and you may love a thing which is bad for you. God knows, while you do not know." Wise words for a British prime minister tempted to delete all those humiliating memories of Basra. The two knee-jerk responses ...
