It isn't often you get to applaud the British MP's but tonight they did us proud, 285 voted against the Government motion to secure authorisation for UK military intervention in Syria with 272 voting for.
David Cameron after losing the vote said: 'it is clear to me that the British parliament, reflecting the views of
the British people, does not want to see British military action. I get
that and the government will act accordingly.'.
Cameron has said he will not use the royal prerogative to start military intervention and respect the decision, and not order an attack.
Dave should be on the phone to Obama about now explaining how an outbreak of sanity in the British House Of Commons means that America's poodle won't be coming along on the latest adventure in the Middle East.
