Cameron steals Australian Labour lineWatch
Just another sign of the Lyntonisation of English politics. Keating's speech was actually quite good. Go to 4:20 and listen for a few minutes; Keating was a superb politician, genuinely a man of vision and he was able to convey the complexity of international macroeconomics, of why the economy is important, to ordinary people in ways they could understand. He would be considered Blairite by English Lab standards, but he was a great PM
I wish Cameron had enough faith in the British people to speak like this, rather than patronise his audience
>Someone used a common four word phrase that was also used by a politician on the other side of the world, 22 years ago.
It would be as familiar as if someone said "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"
It's a good turn of phrase, I can see why he used it, but pretending it's original is a but laughable
I was simply pointing out the origin of the phrase. Given this is a political forum, I presume some political geeks are interested in this type of stuff. IF you're not, that's cool; horses for courses
