Heck, I'm no fan of Tories in general and David Cameron, our prime minister, in particular. But our beloved leader's speech in the House of Commons yesterday will, in my opinion, go down in history as one of the greatest moments in British parliamentary history. I am incredibly impressed. In fact, I can't remember ever having heard such perfect diplomacy and rhetorical brilliance from a prime minister of my country, with the possible exception of some of Churchill's war time speeches, and they were slightly before my time.
Whatever, our personal feelings about them, I believe that, in Cameron and Obama, the world may now be blessed with two leaders who, at the very least, know how to string a sentence together and deliver it clearly. That is quite an improvement on Brown and Bush who both spluttered and gaffed their words like small boys trying to convince a homeowner that it wasn't them who had kicked the football through their kitchen window.
