It would be awful if Parliament is recalled

I do hope Parliament isn't recalled. I'm not particularly sure the current situation in the Middle East warrants it. After all we don't see calls for recall about Iraq or Afghanistan where our troops are deployed, so I'm not sure why we should do it where we have no direct involvement at all.

That's not to dismiss there is a problem there of course, I'm just not sure what recalling Parliament would actually acheive other than costing a lot of money, and possibly creating the bizarre situation whereby each back bench supports the other side's front bench.
