How about the morals of it? And where would you draw the line, hitler? Pol pot? north Korea? the Taliban?

morals? you draw the line at those who don't have anything we want and those who won't pay up (though the easy way to make them pay is to say you'll just give bigger guns to the other side).

Yup - but I would say the BBC is giving the Coalition a surprisingly easy ride at the minute, especially on its main news website which frequently leads with government policy and its supposed impacts without any real challenge to the veracity of any figures, statements etc used.

Yup!

Indeed, but the BBC probably have one eye on the ever present threat to it's operation sponsored by Murdoch and received warmly by many in the Tory party. In other words they are a bit frighted of rocking the boat too much.

The BBC is outstanding but there is a great deal of irony when self-proclaimed "progressives" go around shutting down even the slightest criticism of the Corporation. We're lucky to have the BBC (and I love Sky as much as anyone) but nor should it be beyond reproach.

As for Cameron, try coming and putting up with the shower we have in Stormont. You'll even find that Peter Bone or Jeremy Corbyn (delete as appropriate) are worth having as leader :D

A bit frighted?

I've not seen anyone, let alone self-proclaimed "progressives", going around shutting down criticism of the BBC. It's just that the campaign to brand the BBC as an anti-conservative/anti-Conservative force needs to be exposed for the ludicrous and partisan exercise it is.

As for the shower you have in Stormont, you should just count yourself fortunate that you don't have the shower that you had in Stormont when I was growing up.

I'm not often impressed by David Cameron but on this I most certainly am:

 

 

It would have been very easy for him to have kept his head down and not done this.  Yet he did and will most likely get a big bunch of people frothy mouthed about nothing.  I saw the ranting on the EDL Facebook page about ITV daring to broadcast sunrise and sunset times for Ramadan, I'd hate to see what they'd say about this!

 

To return to the OP, I am no fan of David Cameron. His premiership, and his government's economic record in particular, has been largely disastrous - as many suspected it would be. When it comes to issues such as the tolerance and understanding of religious minorities, and the pushing through of the recent Equal Marriage Act through the Westminster parliament, in the face of much opposition from his own side, then he should be commended.

How will he address the issue of gay marriage(or being gay at all) to the Muslim community? They don't seem to be very inclusive or understanding on that issue.
