Increasingly invertebrate

Babble on.

There is no principle Tony Blair will not sacrifice in his desperate scramble to save his political hide. This much has become evident watching his Labour government vacillate on the Sudan file.

Mr Blair had previously warned that he ruled out "absolutely nothing" and the head of the British Army talked of sending a force of 5,000 soldiers. But yesterday, a spokesman for the Prime Minister said: "At no point were we considering a UK military deployment. We are not in a position where we are considering any UK deployment."

The UK is one of the few international powers with the ability to do something constructive in Sudan, and they are abdicating leadership on the world stage. How far they have fallen.

Babble off.
