I've been alerted to an excellent website called Skwawkbox which contains a clip from Sky News in which the former head of UK armed forces in Iraq, Maj. Gen. Jonathan Shaw is peremptorily cut off whilst saying Assad had no reason to use chemical weapons against his own people. That's not what we're supposed to hear when our brave Prime Minister is battling away to secure her own 'GOTCHA' moment, licensed by loser Trump if not our own Parliament. Apparently she will deign to give an account of her brave deeds to Parliament on Monday. I do hope that all Labour MPs will back Corbyn's stance and avoid trying to sound like May's echo chamber. Some will no doubt want to secure a headline or two by doing just that.
Which reminds me of something else worth watching. No Love for Johnny (1961), starring Peter Finch has just been released on DVD, and portrays an ambitious Labour backbencher who is as cynical as they come. There were a few in those days, and not just on Labour's benches.
