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.
