Hague’s Double Standards

Last week Israel’s ambassador to the UK was summoned to the Foreign Office in a diplomatic protest over their publishing of a planning application. Apparently Hague wanted to show “the depth of the UK’s concerns” about the boost to the Middle East’s construction industry.

Today Egypt’s new progressive president has deployed tanks on the streets of Cairo in an attempt to quell protests against his power grab and constitutional rewrite, yet there is silence from the FCO.

Bricks and mortar bad, tanks and mortar shells good.
