At least between the inauguration of Obama and the Likud victory in Israel, Britain will have the most Zionist government in the world, headed by a Dispensationalist and with an expatriate Israeli (and purchaser of babies over the Internet) as at least the nominal Foreign Secretary (of Milly and the former UN Deputy Secretary-General who holds his hand at Cabinet, I think we all know who is the foreign policy expert in the room, and who is not).
The people who elected Obama are not pro-Israeli. Nor are they pro-Palestinian. They are pro-American. They know that they are paying for every bomb being dropped on Gaza. And they know that they do not currently have that money to spare.
Facing Brown and Miliband is David Cameron, who labours under the strange misapprehension that there is some strand in Toryism that believes profoundly in Israel, and who has surrounded himself with like-minded head-bangers such as Osborne, Gove and Vaizey. In fact, the only such strand in Toryism, Labourism or Liberalism is the one that believes profoundly in Britain. All else is strictly secondary and conditional.
When are we going to get a government, or the chance of a government, that so accords with the instincts and interests of this nation?
