The Silence Of UK MPs On Gaza Is Shameful.

with 2 comments

House of Commons empty

Where are they?

I see a few have signed petitions or letters or statements.  Two ‘leading Tory MPs’ (is this what we call leadership?) have written to David Cameron.

That the right of self-defence is with Palestine and its elected leadership is self-evident.

It’s sickening.  My MP, Richard Drax, Lord of South Dorset, has simply ignored my last two emails about Israel’s war crimes. Cameron is cowering in his bunker. Clegg is redeeming all the accusations of cowardice.  Miliband is no more irrelevant than usual.

There is a ringing, hollow, horrifying, echoing, cacophony of silence from these small, small people.

They have no right to call themselves our leaders. They are disgraced by their inaction, by their cowardice. They are useless.

This is the Auschwitz, Belsen and Dachau of our day. Yet Parliament stands idly by. The West fiddles while children burn.

  1. Yes, they are useless. I wrote to my MP. Have yet to get a response. But from previous knowledge, I suspect that a nice cup of tea overlooking the back lawn will be her response.

    Shameful, and stupid. Even MPs – who should be educated – are unable to assimilate the various subtleties (and not so subtle aspects!!) of the situation.

    My heart bleeds for the Palestinians, who are killed from all sides.
