Am watching Newsnight. Michael Portillo seems to be the one defending Blair against the evil people from the Lib Dems and Jack Straw's version of the labour party.
What's going on? I was expecting Portillo to open his mouth and say how he didn't think Blair knew what he was doing. The ex-special advisor for Jack Straw seems to be all about criticising Blair.
The Israelis need another ten days. To do what? Ten days aren't enough to take the county over by ground. What are they going to acheive by further bombings and arbitrary raids into random villages slightly close to their northern border?
