Syria vote

Sometimes Parliament does something completely unexpected... like reject any military action against Syria.

I would have voted in favour of the government motion, but Parliament is sovereign and tonight has just made a very big argument for its continued relevancy.

I hope that Assad doesn't take this as an excuse to launch another atrocity, although I suspect US action will still follow... if it comes to a UNSC vote, we'll probably abstain.
