Watching the news this evening I see that David Cameron was in Amritsar and visited the site of the notorious 1919 British Army massacre of unarmed locals under General Dyer's orders. Deaths were estimated to be somewhere between 400 and over a thousand. DC was asked if he was going to apologise for the massacre at today's visit but he didn't do so in the end. Given that he felt able to apologise for the Bloody Sunday massacre, does this reek of double standards on his part, or was he right to hide behind Winston Churchill's description shortly after the massacre, namely "monstrous"? I think that if he was serious about building bridges he should have both apologised for that incident and also mentioned that the Indian Government themselves fired on Sikh pilgrims in the Golden Temple in 1984, using tanks and other artillery.
