Halfon Puts Hague on the Iranian Spot

Tory MP Robert Halfon has just ratcheted things up in the House in regard to Iran. Having been granted an Urgent Question, he pushed Hague on “what will happen, if these latest economic sanctions don’t work?” He didn’t stop there either:

“What more is being done to bring Russia and China to the UN table? Most would accept that Britain has shouldered its fair burden in tackling dictators. But it seems clear that the free world must send a message to Iran, that if they continue with their nuclear plans it will lead to military action. No one wants war. But tragically, it is looking increasingly likely…”

Hague waffled about “many contingency plans for many contingencies”. A sound-bite almost up there with “known unknowns”.

          Err, actually most Persians are pretty cool, they hate the Mullahs more than we do. Killing people who would be your allies, is pretty dumb even for warmongering keyboard warriors, let alone the political errand boys in Westminster.

            A friend of mine and his wife went to Iran for a holiday. They said that the ordinary people were incredibly friendly.

            I worked in Syria about twenty years ago. A nicer bunch of people it’s hard to meet. They had synogogues and allsorts in Damascus. No tension at all between the religions as far as I could see. Worked with a Christian chap who spoke Aramaic. Great country, great people. I can well believe the Iranians are largely the same.

            Just like during our 1997-2010 Imbecility – it’s the leaders who are the fucking problem.

          • Geoff says:

            good point Archer – sorry to be such a huhne

          • The Stinking Bishop says:

            It is pretty much the same all over the parts of the world that I have been to. The ordinary people are decent, kind, welcoming and good fun. Sadly, humanity is cursed with a relentless, malignant, cancerous, filthy, self perpetuating, parasitic infestation. It is called politicians and the only cure is to kill them all. Also sadly, ordinary people are far too tolerant of this cruel disease. I would eradicate it overnight with a few well chosen comrades in arms and sufficient supplies of firearms and ammunition.

            The barbed wire wrapped 2″ by 2″ pine wood rammer would be kept solely for Blair.

          • Anonymous says:

            AK, I agree, maybe that it is war what the leaders of Iran actually want to unite the people of Iran, which to western eyes is not what we want (unite the Iranian peoples) which certainly what will happen, Iran has a far larger population than Iraq and a war would be very messy, look at the time spent in Iraq and double it, also very expensive.

They had the temerity to interview local shopkeepers around my constituency office if they recognised her from a photograph; none of them did. It has got nothing to do with my constituents what I do with my expenses. Jahbulon.

        He is right. When Camoron set about destroying our armed forces in 2010, because he needed the money to spend on foreign aid, he assured us that “we face no prospect of war in the next ten years.”

        Apart from the war he started a few months later with Libya, in which we really could have done with the aircraft carrier he scrapped, he’s been spot on.

          Well to be fair Tess gordy and aintbustinagut did the destroying leaving behind that £multi million black hole from sheer economic mismanagement of the MOD and complete disregard for the welfare of the men and women in the armed forces.

          But we should never be fighting other peoples wars anyway. The only time our forces should put their lives at risk is if the UK is directly threatened.

          • Cynical-old-bag says:

            The only time we stick our oars into other peoples wars is if there’s oil – or something else in it for us.

            We should butt out and let them sort it out for themselves.

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            Sure, Gordy was a tit, but that doesn’t excuse Camoron for compounding the problem.

            If there was a multi-billion (38, I think) pound black hole in the defence budget, find out where the money’s being wasted and plug it. But scrapping our vital defences to save £38billion, and then immediately pissing £32billion on the HS2 railway (that no-one wants) and £12billion annually on foreign aid (to countries with space-programmes), is not the way to go about it. As we shall see if Dave’s defence cuts encourage Argentina to re-take the Falklands.

          • Grim says:

            Obviously Iran has to be made into as much of a threat as possible before we can attack it for Isr ael. As we all know, the only way to get ahead as a Politician is to sell your a rse to them via the numerous Support Is rael clubs.

    In order to not screw over Greece and various European economies we have given them until the summer to stop getting their oil from Iran. So… what if Iran stops selling oil to us sooner than that? We just gave them a clear signal that we cannot afford to stop buying oil from them.

    Way to go.

    This is foolish talk, Robert Halfwit should know better. Did he learn nothing from Blair’s disastrous warmongering in the country next door?

    Government debt increased year on year while labour were in power for thirteen years. When they left office the debt was around £800 million. Labour’s overspending meant that the debt would continue to increase. Added to that was the cost of bailing out the banks. It is no wonder that the debt is now in excess of one trillion pounds.
    Well done labour you did the country proud.

    Oh what a lovely bit of war propoganda. WMD’s, nuclear weapons, Iraq/Iran, it’s all the same. At least the powers that be could try something original other than “the bad man wants to hurt us”.

    I don’t trust Hague. He still puts the interests of those sleazy Atlantic Bridge crackpots before the interests of the UK. Just because Israel and the US are in a perpetual state of mindless hysteria about Iran doesn’t mean we have to follow suit.

    Sir Keith Josephs Preserved Head says:

    Doesn’t really a matter a bit what the UK thinks about Iran.
    Unless the US talks to its REAL “special friend” in the world and tells THEM to put THEIR WMDs on the table this will go on. And until america has more mosques than synagogues that isn’t going to change

    If Israel is so concerned about Iran’s nuclear programme, let Israel deal with it.

    Why is Israel’s security any of our concern? I certainly haven’t seen Israel ever lift a finger to help us – although they did supply weapons to Argentina during the Falklands War.

      Have no doubt that Israel will deal with it if the US and the rest of the world does not. Iran cannot argue that they have been given every chance.

        So, just to be clear, you think the Taliban (Sunni Afghan extremists with a history of genocide against Shi’ites) are interchangeable with Iran (Shi’ite Persian-speakers with a history of being targeted by the Taliban)?

        You clearly demonstrate that knowledge of a subject is inversely proportionate to willingness to talk about that subject.

        You’re an embarrassment and a moron.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
