Douglas Alexander is accusing the Prime Minister of avoiding talking about Afghanistan. He told the Labour conference:
– Douglas Alexander, shadow foreign secretary
David Cameron, the self same Prime Minister who told us in May 2010 that Afghanistan would be his number one foreign policy priority, has now not made a single speech on Afghanistan to the House of Commons in 14 months.
Conference, that is shameful. From this platform I say today to David Cameron, break your silence on Afghanistan.
