Gutless May's schoolyard sermon was laughable nonsense

Was that really the best Theresa May could do? It was the same old tosh about "values" and "democracy" and "evil ideology", without the slightest reference to the nation to whom she fawns - Saudi Arabia, whose Wahhabist "ideology" has seeped into the bloodstream of Isil, al-Qa'ida and the Taliban.

Tony Blair used the same garbage language when he claimed - untruthfully, of course - that the 7/7 London bombings had nothing to do with Iraq.

He, too, like George Bush, claimed they were perpetrated because the bombers hated British values and democracy, even though Isil would have no idea what these values were if they woke up in bed next to them.
