The 'Debate' That Wasn't

So how was it for you? For me, the most significant aspect of the whole charade of the 'Two Davids' head-to-head, was not what the Tory leadership hopefuls discussed, but what they didn't.
No mention of the war in Iraq or our country' s complete foreign policy subservience to war-mongering, Empire-builders in Washington.
How happy Messrs Perle, Wolfowitz and Cheney must be when they see two British neo-cons slog it out for the leadership of Britain's main opposition party. How can the war lobby possibly lose when they have the front benches of both our major parties in their pockets? New Labour bombers, or Tory bombers?
That's what 'democracy' in Britain has effectively come down to.

Come on- you're not being fair!
One candidate is a flat-rate taxing, privatising, pro-war Old Etonian Tory called David, while the other is a flat-rate taxing, privatising, pro-war Old secondary modern Tory called David.
What more choice do you want?
