Warmongering MPs should be prepared to sacrifice their own children in the event of war!
We the undersigned believe that the adult children (16+) of any MP who votes in favour of military action should be automatically conscripted into the British Army for the duration of any conflict (provided they are judged to be fit and healthy by ATOS Healthcare).
This would focus the minds of our politicians when they make decisions that will inevitably result in fatalities and ensure that any Members of Parliament who votes in favour of military action does so, not to toe the party line or endear themselves to the party leadership, but because their conscience dictates that the cause justifies risking the life of their own son or daughter. If such a law had been in place prior to 2002 then perhaps our involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq would have been averted and we wouldn’t have men and women to this day being maimed and killed in an unjust conflict that will not succeed.
