Mr Cameron said: “We face real and credible threats to our security from serious and organised crime, from the activity of paedophiles, from the collapse of Syria, the growth of Isis in Iraq and al Shabab in East Africa.
“I am simply not prepared to be a prime minister who has to address the people after a terrorist incident and explain that I could have done more to prevent it.”
The first two problems have been with us since the dawn of time, the last two are situations of our own making. We have survived them all, except those that wish to compound their errors with more of the same.
The fact remains, there will be another terrorist attack, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. They will get through, and all the ballyhoo on display here will accomplish nothing but the erosion of democratic and republican government, which furthers the goal of the terrorists you so vocally fear.
In short, you are colluding with the enemy that you yourselve created.
We shall go on to the end, we pee our pants in France,
we shall pee our pants on the seas and oceans,
we shall pee our pants with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall pee our pants on the beaches,
we shall pee our pants on the landing grounds,
we shall pee our pants in the fields and in the streets,
we shall pee our pants in the hills;
we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”
Heh. That was then good sir, this is now.
