I do not give a fuck what this means for Miliband and Cameron. It's the message it sends to Assad that counts. I am ashamed.

If I were British, I think I’d feel the same after Parliament voted 285 to 272 to reject possible military action against the regime in Syria for using chemical weapons against its own people.
I don’t have the stomach to see what Galloway is saying. I hope at least some Labour MPs voted with the minority.
If there had been authenticated video of Bashar al-Assad rubbing his hands together and cackling with glee as he ordered the poison gas attacks that killed hundreds last week, would the vote have been different?
