The UK has taken steps to expel five Libyan diplomats, Foreign Secretary William Hague has said. Updating MPs, Mr Hague said the five – which include the military attache – “could pose a threat” to UK security. Meanwhile, David Cameron said the UK was not ruling out providing arms to rebels in “certain circumstances” but no decision had yet been taken.
Given that we know there is substantial Al Queda numbers amongst the rebels, are we actually now proposing arming them and if so, do you agree that this is right? The media narrative is painting the rebels as nice guys just wanting a little freedom. But if they fought on the side of tyranny in Iraq, isn’t this a very peculiar practice Cameron is contemplating.
