Viva Viva Palestina

Whilst we are slipping on the ice and waiting for it to melt there is good news from Palestine where the aid convoy has got through.

Details at http://readingpsc.org.uk/convoy/

Whilst the priority of our Government now appears to be changing the law to guard against the possibility that our Israeli "military allies" could face justice if the visit this country, our trade union movement needs to do more to help those in the Middle East who need and deserve our support.

(Returning to the parochial question of when we in the ice-bound south can expect a thaw, I did see a couple of large drips yesterday - but they turned out to be half remembered Blairite former Ministers.)

Update at 2pm - you can watch a film of the arrival of the convoy on the Grauniad website.
