Five years on – Cameron's Libyan disaster

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s five years since Gadaffi’s bloody corpse was dumped from the cargo bed of a Japanese pickup, no doubt watched live by Dave from Downing Street before a glass or two of Chardonnay and a kitchen supper. I doubt if the thought ever entered his coiffed head that his stupidity, ignorance and wilful malfeasance would open Europe to millions of African migrants, give ISIS Islamist killers a new base at Europe’s soft underbelly and cost a vulnerable continent billions to sort his mess out.


And these are not my conclusions but the findings of Dave’s Parliamentary colleagues. Last month the Foreign Affairs Committee published a report into Libya that was lost in the news noise. 

They concluded that Cameron had personally taken a decisive role, had relied on flawed intelligence, and just didn’t understand what was going on in Libya; “UK strategy was founded on erroneous assumptions and an incomplete understanding of the evidence”. Cameron was described by the committee as “ultimately responsible for the failure to develop a coherent Libya strategy”.

Well. No wonder he buggered off, then. He really was a total screw-up.
