Yesterday’s debate’s biggest gaffe was undoubtedly David Cameron’s hamfisted ‘Axis of Evil’ speech, citing China (along with Iran) as the reason we need nuclear missiles.

“Are we really happy to say that we’d give up our independent nuclear deterrent when we don’t know what is going to happen with Iran, we can’t be certain of the future in China?”, whined our prospective leader, demonstrating a naiveté and stupidity that goes beyond making him a poor candidate for Prime Minister and actually puts our national interest and security at risk.

By his withdrawal from mainstream European conservatism to side with homophobes and SS-fantasists, his completely clueless Commando-magazine view of the scale of our problems in Afghanistan, and now this unspeakably irresponsible posturing, David Cameron has demonstrated that he would do for the UK’s relations with the world what Boris Johnson has done for London’s relations with Liverpool.

Vote to defeat the Tories on May 6th. The stakes are too high for you to stay home.
