Pugh on Syria

I was impressed by my Lib Dem MP's actions over the Syria vote. John asked for local people to write to him before the vote  both by email and via the media. He has now explained on his website the course he followed.

How millions of people wish that the Labour Party had behaved this way over Iraq. I am told that the Labour party has 'learned the lessons from Iraq'. Personally I remain to be persuaded. Not one Labour councillor in Sefton vote for the motion on the war in the Council and none to my knowledge have apologised or accepted they got it wrong.

I applaud John's indepence of mind.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
