At last some leadership on Iran. And from the Conservative benches.
After last week’s appalling Jack Straw piece in the Telegraph, the Conservative MP James Morris has a brilliant and blistering response in the same paper.
‘It is vital that we continue to pressure the Iranian regime through tough and sustained sanctions – and leave the possibility of a military option firmly on the table. The Iranian regime must be under no illusions about our determination and resolve in preventing them from achieving their objective of developing a nuclear weapons capability.
Those of us who understand the grave danger a nuclear Iran would pose – and there are many – should not hesitate to make these sentiments absolutely explicit. History will – eventually – be kind once again to Iran’s long-suffering, oppressed people. It will not be so kind to those who should be so foolish to offer their oppressors comfort. But above all it will never forgive those that allowed this most vicious of regimes to arm itself with nuclear weapons.’
