Miliband visited family on settlement on visit to Israel

#4
Miliband is a clown as a minister. I am sure he was a good advisor, policy wonk and "blue skies thinker" but, as a leader and decision-maker, he is hopeless. Brown has surrounded himself with similar creatures, whose answers are inevitably what he wants to hear.

He is also a Trojan horse. Brown was a fool to appoint him, the resignation of a Foreign Secretary is quite a dent in the PM's credibility.

Not in the UK. Being pro-Israel is part of the cross-bench initiation process isn't it?

As long as the Americans keep telling us to, then yes.

Although remember that the key turning point in the ousting of Bliar was his failure to criticise Israel's attack on Lebanon in 2006, which rather upset a lot of the Labour Party, some of whom appear to retain elements of both conscience and backbone.

Let's hope they have a word with the boy Miliband.

Oh, for fuck's sake.

He really just doesn't have a clue about this whole 'diplomacy' lark, does he?

I bet he'll even be confused as to why there's a fuss. Foreign Secretary, eh? It'd make you weep, it truly would.
