Let’s acknowledge that political point scoring over today’s consideration by the House of Commons is problematic when many people are still trying to work out just what is the appropriate way forward.
There’s been an atrocity, but it’s not fully understood (and there was a chance for it to be explained more clearly soon).
The way forward being painted by David Cameron was not understood, neither in its purpose and design; nor its legality, extent and likelihood of success.
Cameron is culpable cos he called Parliament back early, yet he actually needed time to work things out.
Slightly concerned by outcome – there will be no intervention with Britain taking part – cos I think message was ‘take time to work out what’s happened and argue a way forward through the UN’.
Note BBC tv commentary in response to opening speeches that Ed Miliband had the worst of it and Cameron wold win the vote looked pale ten hours later.
