Democracy And Democratic Accountability

Autonomous Mind - who is as much a fan of Cameron as I- posts on another useless and illogical statement by our unelected Leader. Commenting on the statement by Cameron, on the release of Aung San Suu Kyi, AM quotes from Cameron words in the HoC this afternoon:

"I am sure that the whole House will want to join me in welcoming the liberation, at last, of Aung San Suu Kyi. Her tenacity and courage in the face of injustice has been truly inspiring. I spoke to her this morning to pass on the congratulations of everyone in this country on her release and her remarkable stand on democracy and human rights. We must now work to ensure that her release is followed by freedom for more than 2,000 other political prisoners in Burma and that this becomes the first step towards the people in Burma genuinely being able to choose the person whom they want to run their country." (my emphasis)

AM continues:
"Oh piss off. It never ceases to amaze me how a quisling stooge like Cameron, who pointedly refuses to ask the British people for their consent to remain in the European Union, can stand there and make statements such as that in italics [emphasised in bold-Ed] above when he denies the British people any say over who runs Britain – namely the unelected and unaccountable EU.
Why is it that self determination and the ability to chose who runs a country is a principle that should only apply in other countries? If Cameron had an ounce of integrity he would accept that principle, first and foremost, must apply in Britain. But he won’t because in his own slimy way Cameron is every bit as much a dictator as the members of the military junta in Myanmar, restricting freedom and exerting control over the people he supposedly leads – because he thinks he knows what’s best for us."
Seems fair comment to me - what say you?
