Robust - Cameron's response to the riots

The first of innumerable uses of the word "robust" came after three minutes and 45 seconds. This used to mean "a statistic that might actually be true". Now it means "bashing rioters over the head". - Haha

Cameron's response to the riots was redolent of his hero, Tony Blair

The prime minister was calm, firm, resolute and sub-Churchillian – whether it will lead to anything is a different matter

Youtube version of Cameron's speech Look at the comments, many different points of view, interesting.

Tories on riot policing: too few, too slow, too timid
