The BBC’s expert today, urging us to go and fight in Iraq, also urged the government to recall Parliament next week or the week after.
Shouldn’t he have studied the Commons timetable before speaking? My diary has recorded Parliament returning on 1 September for a long time. Didn’t the BBC’s Today programme also know that Parliament returns at the beginning of September?
If they can be so wrong on such a simple issue of UK politics, should we trust them on the politics of Syria and Iraq?
