FCO Minister Lidington Bends Over in Front of Spain

Foreign Office native David Lidington is getting taken apart from all sides of the House for accepting Spain’s two-fingered excuse that their opening of British diplomatic bags was a “mistake”. Labour’s Gerald Kaufman warned¬†“the softly softly approach of this government is not working”, with never knowingly off message Bob Neill accusing the Spanish of “stooping to the level of Franco”. Peter Bone wants a “couple of gunboats” and Col Bob Stewart ominously asked for “any other measures”.¬†But it was Lidington’s exchange with Andrew Rosindell that summed it up:

AR: “Is it time to send the Spanish Ambassador back to Madrid?”

DL: “No, Mr Speaker.”

The first time an EU country has attacked another member in such away and our cowardly Foreign Office beg for more.
