When did Cameron become the Prime Minister of England?
Yesterday, during Prime Minister Questions, Cameron said something stupid.
At the end of PMQS, Peter Hain asked a question about renewable energy specifically on the Severn Barrage project in Wales.
The Prime Minister replied with this answer:
I heard the right hon. Gentleman on “Farming Today” waxing eloquent on this project. I think that it has many advantages. A huge amount of renewable energy could be delivered through a barrage of this kind. He knows that there are lots of problems and that the environmental groups have been divided over it, but I am very happy to listen to his views as he takes forward this important piece of work. I think that there are many opportunities in a challenging European economy, as he says, to look at energy connectors and energy co-operation, particularly between England, France and other northern European countries.
Read that last bit again. Yes, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland confused the UK with England when talking to a man from Wales not greater England.
Thats either supreme arrogance or supreme ignorance. Or he is practicing for when Scotland leaves the UK & he is left with England, Wales & NI & just like before Scotland joined the union will be known as the Kingdom of England.
Cameron has said he doesn’t want to be Prime Minister of England so why is he practicing?
If Cameron wants the UK to survive, going around pretending to be PM of England isn’t going to help matters if we Scots feel he isn’t sticking up for us as well especially in an industry where Scotland is leading the way in the UK and in Europe. The PM demoting us to another “northern European country” he’d liked to work with just isn’t going to do the trick.
