Claire Short makes you all redundant

Clare Short has announced that she is to introduce a Private Member's Bill giving parliament power to sanction war. The former international development secretary, who came third in the Bill ballot, told the BBC's Today Programme that it was "not an adequate constitutional arrangement" for the decision to go to war to rest with the prime minister alone.
So - where do we go now>
I can't stand her but she's absolutely right. Tony Blair is only the leader of the political party which has the most votes in the General Election - we have never voted for him to have absolute power. He isn't our head of state - only a politician - a servant of the people and of the crown.

Hooray for the boot-faced miserable old cow.
