I didn't see Question Time last night as I was on stage in Lichfield with Ann Widdecombe, but I gather Matthew Parris put in a storming performance. One point he made was that he frankly couldn't care less about the Middle East conflict. He was bored by it. He's just repeated the view on LBC's morning discussion programme with James O'Brien, who agrees with him.
I must admit I was a bit shocked. Isn't is something we should care about? Can we really afford to wash our hands of it and just say it has absolutely nothing to do with us? Isn't that just being grossly irresponsible?
