I thought that it would be interesting to use Storify to see what news was trending on UK Prime Minister, David Cameron. Check it out!




As I reflected on these cameos of evidence, my mind wondered to the following open question:


Who is the biggest lame-duck leader out of David Cameron, Barack Obama and Francois Hollande?


Any thoughts?

  2. Dr Alf’s question is a difficult one to answer but based on the time that they have left in office and their legacies, David Cameron has just 19 months left in office, and Barack Obama has just over 2 years.

    Barack Obama was put into the Presidency to enact certain draconian laws, increase the surveillance powers of the American State and forment a Middle East War.

    On all objective measures, he (Obama) has only completed half of this Agenda, and has been forced to backtrack on Syria, whilst leaving America in a position where his attempts to make headway on gun control and the green agenda have been blocked by powerful interests within the country and by a public who are only too aware of what he is being told to do.

    The American military themselves, whilst willing to defend the country and America’s rightful interests are no longer prepared to waste blood and treasure on Presidential whim, so President Obama and his mentors overseas have been checkmated.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, I put him as an 8 in the lame duck stakes because after November 2016 he can never serve as President again.

    David Cameron is already in the lame duck state but could in theory come back again in another Coalition but in reality has already been earmarked for a big job at the UN even though on every occasion he has had a confrontation or been faced with one he has “bottled it”(cut and run).

    Time is not on his side in his present role, whilst Boris Johnson, now practicing his newly learnt Mandarin to leapfrog over all his potential rivals is lined up to take his job.

    I would put David Cameron at about a 9 in the uselessness stakes, and as a joint lame duck with President Obama.

    That leaves the invisible man, Socialist, President Hollande.

    He is as useless as the other 2 leaders but is not yet a lame duck because he has the military forces to be able to assist the Americans, whereas the UK with all the current and impending cuts, lack of aircraft carriers and new recruits no longer does.

    Economically France, under Hollande, is avoiding proper reform in favor of Socialist dogma, so to my mind, he has some power but is not yet a lame duck just a fairly useless leader controlled by others.
