Wonder what my brother-in-law would make of parts of this conversation with our pampered doctor? He was serving in a field hospital in the former Yugoslavia and said it was rather difficult to do scans on patients when someone is lobbing shells at you. His words were stronger than that, but I don't want to offend anyone's sensibilities.

And yes, he does still get flashbacks.

Do the lives saved in Kosovo outweigh the lives lost in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan?
Wy do you think that's a relevant question. After all, I though "It's not the act of defiance which makes you a winner it's whether you were right"?

Corbyn's a non-interventionalist. Do the lives saved in Kosovo outweigh the lives lost in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan?
The merits and demerits of intervention are for philosophers and historians to argue over. Corbyn is neither. Simple fact is, applying a hard rule to this stuff is simplistic and leads to bizarre equivocations. No strange thing for a Corbyn fan, obviously. And no, none of this is mutually exclusive with dick-waving politicians also being simplistic idiots.

He's not really a doctor, you know.

Back in 1991, various people said that the surest way to avoid the gulf war would be to assassinate George Bush. Because then you'd have Dan Quayle running the show, trying to keep Israel and Saudi Arabia from blowing each other up.

It's ever so easy with the benefit of hindsight to say that wars/invasions/attacks shouldn't have happened but in that case, what should have been done about Saddam?
Salute his courage, his strength, his indefatigability?

Reports that the Mail on Sunday are running the story that Chuka Umunna will stand for the Lib Dems in Streatham whenever the next GE comes.

But insiders say the disagreements were even more heated behind closed doors, punctuated by differences over leadership arrangements, threats to quit the party and lack of agreement over even the basics of the party’s future direction.

Some of the reported disputes bordered on farce, such as the party almost missing a print deadline for its European election leaflets because one MP wanted a different photograph, and official social media feeds being stopped at the instructions of one member, and then tacitly resumed by another.

Meanwhile, sources amid those who quit argue that Soubry and Leslie – whose spouses are respectively treasurer and chief executive of the party – sought to run Change UK “like a Soviet state”.
Lmao even outside of the labour party their go to is to call everyone they disagree with Stalin.

I know ChukUK is now dead, but its spirit lives on in the brainworms of a million political commentators.
We're going to need a new thread title. It looks as though Change.org actually got them rattled:
Weird that this group of savvy operators didn't have any awareness of change.org, or even think to google their prospective name to see what came up.

They really are just going through the motions until they lose their seats, aren't they?
