More than a week since I contacted the LibDems about Jenny Tonge's appointment to the House of Lords and still no answer. However I did find this justification of Charles Kennedy's sacking of Tonge. He said:
"There can be no formal role for someone who has given voice to such a view."
"The correct decision was quite simply if you are in an elected position of responsibility then even to convey the perception that somehow there is an ethical defence to be made of somebody who wants to be a suicide bomber is simply not acceptable."
Despite this, Kennedy still nominated Tonge for the upper House. Do the LibDems now condone Palestinian suicide bombers?
