War!

The heir to Blair has led the charge toward intervention in Libya. It’s taken its time. Our foreign policy adventure will even be legal this time.

As fireworks go off and the rebels celebrate the news on the streets of Benghazi, not everyone in Westminster can hold their head up high knowing that the West is finally doing the right thing. Harriet Harman, the Shadow International Development Secretary no less, is looking at a bit of a headache with her loud-mouthed and hard-left PPS. Ian Lavery says of a no fly zone:

“I just cannot see for the life of me that would be the right thing to do. I would be opposed to any military intervention in Libya whatsoever. We cannot go on this way trying to resolve other countries’ problems… we have got our own problems here. I understand there are huge problems with Gaddafi’s ludicrous regime, but it should not be left to the UK to resolve.”

Charming. But it’s not just minions that have been used to stir up trouble. The international community coming together has left Red Ed red-faced. At the beginning of the month he tried to use the No Fly Zone to score political points at PMQs. As part of a wider attack on the government’s competence, he said to Cameron:

“On Monday you floated the idea of a no-fly zone; on Tuesday, however, a number of foreign governments distanced themselves from the idea. Can you clarify where that proposal now stands?”

It is on and Britain stands with the people of Benghazi…

Quote of the Day

Dominic Cummings tells Damian Collins:

“You talk of ‘contempt of Parliament’. You seem unaware that most of the country feels contempt for Parliament and this contempt is growing.”
