The BBC is reporting that the British MPs have voted against taking action against Syria. At least they are listening to their constituents.
It was a close call though

'British MPs have voted against possible military action against Syria to deter the use of chemical weapons.

David Cameron said it was clear the British Parliament does not want action and "I will act accordingly".

The government motion was defeated 285 to 272, a majority of 13 votes.'
This is the Difference in Westminster system where you are seen as un-patriotic if you DON'T distrust, mock & slander your leaders, blind faith in leaders is looked upon in disgust, its expected they will do the wrong thing.
This means occasionally very occasionally they will do the right thing as they know there's only so much they can get away with & not get punished at the next election.
Awesome.
good news, a show of non confidence to help the US admin stand down

British Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said that Britain would not take part in any military action.

"I hoped we would carry the argument but we understand there is a deep well of suspicion about involvement in the Middle East," Hammond told BBC TV's Newsnight programme.





no kidding bro, the people know the game thats being played





Cameron lost vote endorsing military action against Syria was a stunning defeat that will almost guarantee that Britain plays no direct role in any US attack on Bashar Assad's government.

A grim-faced Cameron conceded after the vote that "the British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British military action".

The prime minister said that while he still believed in a "tough response" to the alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad's regime, he would respect the will of Parliament.

The defeat was as dramatic as it was unexpected.
At the start of the week, Cameron had seemed poised to join Washington in possible military action against Assad.

smart.

public perception matters. It really does.

when the avg. joe doesn't buy it.. it's just bad PR to do something like this.

also they can't really afford this.
Interesting. I'm curious to see what Australia's sycophantic, snivelling lap dog of a PM will do now. He usually just has to agree with the UK & the US and not even think, but this will confuse him.
I think the Australian president should ask the people, the native people, the aborginals
They should be the true decider of what happens, its their country after all even though it has been stolen by others, the spiritual ownership is theirs, as such they should decide spiritual and moralistic matters such as these.
The aboriginal folk would be highly opposed to the invasion of a sovereign nation, by white settlers.
If that is their will then it should be listened too and agreed with, they are guardians of that land. as such their will should decide it fate in this regard.
OBOMBA STILL SET TO STRIKE SYRIA.. EVEN AS KEY ALLY UK SAYS NO!


WASHINGTON — President Obama is prepared to move ahead with a limited military strike on Syria, administration officials said Thursday, despite a stinging rejection of such action on Thursday by America’s stalwart ally Britain and mounting questions from Congress.

The vote was also a setback for Mr. Obama, who, having given up hope of getting United Nations Security Council authorization for the strike, is struggling to assemble a coalition of allies against Syria.
