Obama’s victory is bad news for Cameron

As we all wake up to hear the good news from the USA – a second term for Barack Obama and the Democrats- our Prime Minister must be feeling pretty downhearted.  He would clearly have been hoping for a Republican victory to give him at least one friend!  Yes – life must be getting pretty lonely for David Cameron and the ConDems.  Across the world people are rejecting right wing policies and austerity measures which have caused hardship and stunted attempts for economies to come out of recession.

 Times are hard in the US, just as they are here in Britain, but Obama’s appeal to all people to work together as one will help send a positive message across the globe about what we can achieve by working together to make society a better place for everyone.  It’s commonly said that all politics in the US is right wing, yet everything I hear from Barack Obama shows that he truly is a democratic socialist who is committed to making America a better place rather than trying to dominate the world.

 Cameron talks about us being ‘all in it together’ but nobody believes him and nobody is listening anymore because we all know that it’s not true and Cameron and his millionaire croneys have felt no pain at all since they plunged this country into a double dip recession (in spite of claims that they’d ‘sort the mess out’ our debt is now higher than it was when Labour left office).

 Cameron might as well face it now – his days are numbered.
