Clegg sacks Tonge

This strikes me as both politically sensible and the appropriate thing to do.

She has some defenders in the thread below this. One argues that she didn't repeat the organ-harvesting allegation - only that to avoid this sort of thing, the the "IDF and the Israeli Medical Association should establish an independent inquiry immediately to clear the names of the team in Haiti."

This won't do. Try this formulation: "The IDF and the Israeli Medical Association should establish an independent inquiry immediately to investigate claims that soldiers drank the blood of Christian children". To describe it as absurd is the least one could say about it and to go on about the influence of the 'Zionist lobby', as some have already, is - how to put it? - a red herring designed to distract from the nonsensical position Tonge found herself taking.
