The death penalty

death penalty

When is Britain (and Labour in particular) going to stand up for their principles rather than playing the poodle of the US? According to this article in the Independent, Britain has vetoed pressing the African Union to abolish the death penalty: “British diplomats said privately that they did not wish to create difficulties for the United States at a delicate time.”

This is just so appalling! Do Labour politicians have no principles that cannot be changed if Dubya wants it?
