NuLab is rattled enough to start bleating about the "national interest"
It had to happen sooner or later: NuLab playing the national interest card, I mean. Yesterday, David Milliband, the Foreign Secretary, announced that Britain's retreat from the failed adventure in Iraq would be made independently of the USA and purely in the "British national interest".
Who does he think he is kidding? This lot wouldn't recognise Britain's national interest if it came along, grabbed them by the balls, and announced, "Hello, I'm the national fucking interest."
Remember, NuLab is the party that gave a foreign policy diktat to an ambassador to "get up the arse of the White House and stay there".
No, they will retreat from Iraq when they can no longer justify even to themselves the costs of remaining there any longer. After they have told their master in Washington that they can no longer stand the strain, and got his permission, of course.
