(not satire – it’s the Lib Dems!)
Yesterday the supposedly cuddly Lib Dems were almost as gung-ho about going to war with Syria as their coalition partners the Tories.
46 out of 55 Lib Dem MPs supported the government motion. I make that around 84% of Lib Dem MPs voted in support of military action.
274 out of 304 Tory MPs supported the government motion. That’s around 90% if my calculations are right.
Which means the Lib Dems were just as supportive of Cameron’s motion as the Tories.
Final proof – if any more were needed – that the Lib Dems have finally become ‘Tory-lite’.
