Of Scales Falling From Eyes
I am unperturbed that several Tory MPs who voted against war, abstained, or did not turn up had enjoyed the hospitality of President Assad in Damascus.
This means that they had been to Syria, they knew what they were talking about, and they therefore voted against war, abstained, or did not turn up.
Well, of course they did. They had been to Syria, so they knew what they were talking about.
If the UN Security Council does vote after all for military intervention in Syria, then the United Kingdom, as a Permanent Member, must veto that Resolution, even if Russia did not. The House of Commons must insist upon that.
Ed Miliband, over to you.
