Question.

Even if the UK called for a ceasefire what good would that actually do? Canít imagine Israel would take a blind bit of notice.
They wouldn't but it would possibly seen as a show of humanity. Lord knows we need some humanity in our politicians to be honest

I don't know why Labour whipped MPs to vote against the motion. Given the tories were against it and seemed united, it seems unnecessary and has only led to them being seen as shambolic.

To show they can put a united front with other major allies - voting as if in Government.

I don't subscribe to it - but  that's what was said against a free vote.

More likely because that's the policy the sponsors of the Labour Party supports.

ok , Russia buys loads of shit off Iran, Iran supports Hamas And Hezbollah, Russia ain't doing well in Ukraine.
Therefore, Russia has a word with Iran, Hamas suicide mission against Israel
Takes the pressure off the war in Ukraine

Invade Iran.

I should be a diplomat! Sorted.

Not far off I suspect - Although invading Iran and you being a diplomat are unlikely!

Big pre-election giveaway budget (well, Autumn statement) today. National Insurance cut of 2% seems to be the big headline - about £450 less tax over a year for someone earning around £35k. Not unwelcome at all but a bit odd considering this same government put it up 1.25% all of 12 months ago as the Health and Social Care levy.

It's the natural cycle of things that taxes go up early in a governmental period and then down again right before an election to try and buy a few votes, but it does seem particularly obvious this time around.

Unless I'm missing something, no inheritance tax cut that had been rumoured.

Yeah, election footing started. I'm sure they are keeping their powder dry for later too.

NI cut is useful, but tax thresholds haven't changed with pay increases so its not clear cut in real terms.
