Would you believe it: only a matter of hours after my post about Afghanistan, in which I asked if enough attention was being paid to the war there, the subject gets raised in two separate questions in today's PMQs.
Old-school Labour lefty Jeremy Corbyn wondered, surprisingly politely, if the Prime Minister might like to set a date for withdrawal.
Old-school High Tory Sir Peter Tapsell was much ruder, asking if the PM was aware that the war in Afghanistan was unwinnable -- a waste of money and lives, or words to that effect.
What an alliance!
Perhaps this is turning out to be one of those political topics where there is an all-party mainstream consensus, with the extremes meeting up with each other round the back, like Enoch Powell and the Communist Party sharing a platform against the EEC in 1975.
