How soon before Blair gets dumped?
The Independent is reporting that the divisions over imperialism's forward march now seem to have spread to the British government. The Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, has told the cabinet that he will not support any attack on Iran. Tony Blair for his part has still refused to rule out British support for any such move. According to the report, "most Labour MPs. . .would revolt" if Blair tried to support Washington in any future attack.

Reading the article it looks as if a shot has just been fired across the good ship USS Blair's bows. First Straw went on record as opposing military action, then four hours later, Blair was asked a question in the Commons that led to his answer. Finally this report has emerged of a putative coup against Blair.

The battle lines have now been drawn and we await Washington's next move. If they do attack Iran and Blair does not back down, then we shall find out what the Labour backbenches are made of.
