Labours Chris Bryant has had to do a massive U-turn after it was found that he nominated the failing US President for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Mr Bryant, in recent days, has been attacking both UK and US Governments in regards to Afghanistan. The Labour MP said: “I feel more ashamed than I can remember in any foreign policy debate in my twenty years in this house.”
“It’s been the most sudden and catastrophic collapse of a foreign and military policy objective of the United Kingdom since Suez.”
“I’m ashamed that we never said to the United States of America last year, or this year, hang on, stop, think, put in place a proper plan before you go ahead with this.”
“Our silence now has effectively enabled Biden to get away with some of the most shameful comments ever from an American president.”
Even though Mr Bryant has come down hard on Biden, unearthed accounts reveal that 11 months ago, the Labour MP was besotted with the US President and nominated the worst US President in history for a Nobel Peace Prize.
The former deputy leader of the House of Commons said Biden is a calming influence in American politics. He added: “When American cities have been in flames and citizen has been pitched against citizen, Joe has been a calming influence to bear.
“When others have resorted to violent solutions, he has argued that the best force is the force of argument because guns can stop a heart, but well-placed words can change many hearts, and many hearts can change the world.”
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Labour has lost the plot to say Biden is a “calming influence?” I know we can look at this in hindsight, but his previous actions show he has been no calming influence; he has been an aggressor for the left. Have your say in the comments below.
