At PMQs today, Mr Iain McKenzie (Inverclyde) (Lab) asked the man masquerading as our prime minister, the following question:
With the tragic accident involving the cruise ship Costa Concordia and the 50-plus liners of the same size or bigger that will visit Greenock dock on the Clyde in the coming months and year ahead, does the Prime Minister still think that it was the correct decision to close the Clyde coastguard station?David Cameron gave him this answer
First, the case in Italy is clearly a tragic one, and our hearts should go out to the people who have lost loved-ones - people from countries right across the world. We need to wait and see what the exact cause of the accident was before we jump to conclusions about any changes to regulations or other things. However, if changes need to be made, including on the issue that the hon. Gentleman raises, of course we will make them.One might think he was talking about the administration he leads, but considering ship safety is an exclusive EU competence, what does he actually mean by "we"?
Why is The Boy still pretending to have powers that have long since been given to Brussels? Is he ashamed to admit how much has been surrendered, or is it that he just doesn't know?
