Downing Street Crisis about Love

News / Updates

The Daily Mail reports on June 1, 2013 a ‘sensational’ love affair:

It has come to light that two middle-aged people who are not serving in the Cabinet (one of course wonders just what their position is) had an affair and this contains such potential political damage that PM David Cameron held crisis talks, and discussed possible political fallout should details of this affair become public.

“When aides told Mr Cameron the identities of the alleged lovers he was ‘stunned’, and, according to sources, ‘immediately realised the importance of the story’.”

The revelation of this love affair between two mature adults (now concluded) is classified as “dynamite” and disclosure could “blow out of the water” any major political plans.

Dynamite? What right does anybody have to judge two grown-ups who fall in love? Is love now seen as such dangerous activity that under no circumstances may it infiltrate government?

A source added that, apart from the political implications, the revelation had caused “great personal distress to innocent parties.” This may be so, but surely this is a private matter and does not need any government intervention!

It appears disclosure of such an affair “places a further strain on Mr Cameron’s leadership, which is already being tested by backbench revolts over issues such as Europe and gay marriage and rumours of plots being hatched to overthrow him.” Is Mr Cameron supposed to be responsible for when and how people love each other? Isn’t it of utmost importance that he and his Cabinet work on improving the economy and people’s welfare rather than being made accountable for a love affair? This reveals yet again the sad state of mind of politicians whose only interest is to dominate others with their narrow-mindedness.

Love is dangerous to the establishment, the most dangerous thing, because if people are loving then this society is doomed. This society depends on hatred, not on love. Our whole politics and our whole so-called religions are based on hatred.
