Video: UK Column Live Aug 28th: How British MPs Are Being Manipulated into War

29 August 2013 — 21st Century Wire

This episode was broadcast at 1pm UK on August 28th. After this broadcast, UK Labour opposition appears to have thrown a spanner in David Cameron’s engine of war, changing today’s Commons debate and war vote from a slam dunk to a slightly longer, drawn out affair, as Cameron has opted to drop today’s vote on military intervention altogether. Expect more jockeying and manipulation to unfold as the UK, US and France attempt to turn Syria into the next Libya…
