Troops in Iraq

Something is afoot as we were all paged last night and asked to make ourselves available for a vote on troops in Iraq at 6pm onThursday.
As far as I can see the only item on the agenda is an adjournment debate on "Defence in the World" (I bet the powers that be are regretting the scheduling of that one) and we don't usually vote at the end of an adjournment debate.
I suspect Erskine May is being scanned and heads are being put together to work out how some vote can be achieved but the details are so far hazy.

Watch this space.
