Northfield Labour MP uses his commons question to ask about Gaza

Richard Burden Northfield MP spent his question chance in the house of commons to waffle about Gaza. How many Palestinians (if there exists such a people) in Northfield? I would guess none.

His website: http://www.richardburden.com/
Richard is Chair of the Britain-Palestine All Party Parliamentary Group which seeks to foster good relations and understanding between Britain and Palestine and to promote a just and durable peace in the Middle East.Richard has had an active interest in this region since writing his university dissertation and visits the area at least once a year to see for himself the situation on the ground and to meet key players. Richard regularly speaks on this issue in Parliament as well as writing articles and commenting on developments. This section of his website has these articles available to download as well as any press releases issued.

His question:
I, too, have visited Sterodt, and the fear of the people there that my right hon. Friend has described is absolutely genuine. However, if she is saying that the flaw in the Goldstone report was the time limit placed on the date from which it enquired, and she has talked about other things that should be looked at, why has she failed to mention the existence of the Hamas ceasefire long before Operation Cast Lead, or the blockade that existed in an extreme form since Hamas was elected to Government and in one form or other for a long time before that? If she wants to be balanced, why does she not mentioned those things?
