Theresa May is famous for pioneering the dual virtues of strength and stability. But she wasn’t the inventor of these sacred British ideals. Because that distinction goes to her predecessor, David ‘Stability McStrongface’ Cameron:
Britain faces a simple and inescapable choice – stability and strong Government with me, or chaos with Ed Miliband: https://t.co/fmhcfTunbm

And now, the strong one has returned with a message for all those who doubt the DUP deal’s ability to provide the SS (strength & stability) we need:
Task facing PM, given the circs, is to deliver the most stable govt possible – today's DUP deal helps achieve that. All Cons should support.

A legacy of SS
Cameron practically drips with SS – like a spit-roasted hog basting in its own juices.
In his years of perpetrating SS, Cameron managed to create very much from very little – like a gammon-faced Jesus feeding 5,000 people with nought but a ham sandwich and a packet of pork scratchings.
His achievements included:
- The EU Referendum (albeit without any sort of plan for what would happen afterwards).
- Continuous NHS cost savings (with no negative service impact to those who could afford to go private).
- Making the deficit an important issue (without ever actually solving what they claimed the problem was).
- Super improvements to employment (as long as you weren’t arsed about job security / decent pay / pride).
- Continuous and powerful opportunities for necro-porcine humour.
What’s the pig idea?
Bearing in mind his record, David Cameron has earned the right to speak. And he has definitely earned the right to give his opinion.
It’s just that he’s also earned the right to have rotten vegetables thrown at him whenever he does.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth
Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content.
