COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

David Cameron’s former director of strategy says Tony Blair warned him about a ‘deep state’ conspiracy
Steve Hilton says the former Prime Minister told him the civil service ‘believe it’s their job to actually run the country’

Well, those nasty little civil servants aren’t very effective, are they?

They let Tony Blair get away with mass murder in Iraq, and they let David Cameron pull one of the great blunders of the century with his bone-headed referendum.

Please, a note on the use of the term “Deep State.”

It is not the civil service to which this term is usually applied. Indeed, I think it quite misleading to use it this way.

It is the hidden rulers – the plutocrats and special interests supported by security and military services – that are the Deep State.

Tony Blair served them faithfully. That’s why he got an Israel Peace Prize and a whole lot of sinecures.

So did David Cameron serve them, although far less successfully owing to his basic lack of competence.
