Those Lib Dems and their friends in low places

'Lord' Dykes, one time MP for Harrow East, seems quite keen on some fairly illiberal individuals:

"To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they will hold with the government of France with a view to including Hamas in a government of national unity covering all Palestinian Territories".

Dykes, one might note is quite keen on the EU. This is what the EU thinks of Hamas: "The European Union lists Hamas among the entities against which it applies restrictions in order to combat terrorism".

And he then asked this:

"To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their response to the call by 80 members of the British Jewish community in a letter to the Guardian on 10 January for a programme of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel after the recent military action in Gaza".

In both cases Malloch-Brown slapped him down, by the way.

UK polling report makes this demographic note for Harrow East (2001) : Jewish: 10.3%

I wonder whether he would be asking these questions if he had to face the good people of Harrow in 2010. Perhaps he has been spending time with Jenny Tonge.
