‘Life in Libya is worse than ever!’ Cameron’s ‘ill-conceived’ military action has created ‘six million little Gaddafis’ and turned country into ISIS hotbed – say people who once HATED the dictator

- Five years on from the 2011 execution of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is on its knees
- Country is crippled by power cuts, sky high food prices, and threat of ISIS
- Amid the chaos, a lapse in security means 8,000 migrants travel across the southern border daily and head north towards Europe
- Those living in Libya who were willing to take up arms and kill Gaddafi in 2011 say their lives were actually better under the dictator
Five years on from Britain’s ‘ill conceived’ military intervention to dispose of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, ordinary people in Libya say life was better under the despot than the anarchy and threat of ISIS in the country today.
Crippled by power black-outs, a five-fold increase in the cost of food, salaries unpaid for months and the threat of terror, citizens who took up arms against Gaddafi now say their quality of life was better under the feared dictator.
They claim his execution has led to a power vacuum that has created ‘six million little Gaddafis’ and they no longer feel safe to leave their homes after dark.
