Labour Party activist Ben Folley has written to the local papers in defence of Emily Thornberry MP, claiming that she would have been against the war had she been in Parliament at the time.
I marched against the Iraq war and 100% of Lib Dem MPs voted against the war, while Labour and Tories voted it through. There’s little point voting for an anti-war MP unless you are voting for an anti-war party.
Since her election Ms Thornberry has proved to be an arch loyalist who has voted with the Government 98% of the time, including voting for ID cards and new nuclear power stations, for keeping the council tax, against reforming inheritance tax and for closing Post Offices. Funnily enough Mr Folley does not mention this.
Why is it that Labour members are most proud when their MPs rebel and vote with the Liberal Democrats?
