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.

I agree with Bill Maher – on Islam

I opened a recent Time magazine (Sept. 29, 2014) today and saw in big bold words a quote from British Prime Minister David Cameron on ISIS: “They are not Muslims. They are murderers.” With all due respect to the prime minister – they are Muslims, and they are murderers. Our president said something similar after the beheading of American James Foley in August: “ISIL speaks for no religion. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, or wh ...

Will the West defend itself from the barbarians?

Sep 30 2014 6:54pm CDT | Source: WND

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), sometimes called ISIS or IS, is a Sunni extremist group that follows al-Qaida’s anti-West ideology and sees a holy war against the West as a religious duty. With regard to nonbelievers, the Quran commands, “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out.” The Quran contains many other verses that call for Muslim violence against nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Contrast the words of t ...

Tory Conference: Fear and Loathing in Birmingham as Activists Slam Potential Defectors

Sep 30 2014 7:10am CDT | Source: Big Government

BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom -- Considering that Tory conference opened on a UKIP defection from Member of Parliament Mark Reckless, the annual Conservative Party gathering hasn’t actually gone that badly for David Cameron’s party. The main speeches and policy points are being broadly welcomed by delegates in Birmingham, and the main hall is consistently packed despite fears that the active membership had bottomed out and failed to show. Speaking to attendees in the bar ...
