David Cameron has secured the necessary UN approval for a “No Fly Zone” and action against inhumane attacks on Libyan citizens by President Gadaffi. We must hope that the World has not left it too late to act and that the Libyans can be saved from vicious attacks and retaliation for standing up to their unpopular government. David is speaking in the Chamber today.
Meanwhile the agonies of Japan continue. I know that many people in North East Herts will feel great sympathy for those affected by the Earthquake and Tsunami and I am writing to the Ambassador passing on our best wishes at this time. I have also been in touch with Minister Jeremy Browne MP, who has told me about the huge Consular effort in Tokyo to ensure the safety of British people there.
