Had a laugh at this item the BBC ran this morning. In essence the suggestion is that the UK Government did not do a deal with Libya for commercial advantage. Oliver Miles, deputy chairman of the Libyan British Business Council, was wheeled on to suggest there was probably some “political” deal though the objective of this was unspecified. Of COURSE there was a deal for commercial and political advantage. Palmerston’s adage remains as true now as ever but for some reason the BBC want us to think that Labour, being good little socialists, would never do something just for £££. Labour’s political DNA is all over this one and the one thing we do know for sure from the track record is that when it comes to cash. Labour will do anything. Prostituting decency in pursuance of riches is no problem for them. No blood for oil anyone?
NO SELFISH ECONOMIC INTEREST???
