Captain Tony's Mutiny
that Aussie Tony is facing a full scale rebellion by his own front
bench over the crisis in Lebanon. Jack Straw, Tony's former
Foreign Secretary and now Leader of the Commons, has issued a statement
in which he said that while he grieved for innocent Israelis killed by
Hezbulla rockets, he also mourned the "10
times as many innocent Lebanese men, women and children killed by
Israeli fire", and warned that Israel's over zealous actions "risked
destabilizing the whole of Lebanon".
If only the rodent's front benchers would show such courage. But that calls for a backbone, which none of them seem to possess.
