WE ARE ALL PALESTINE ! Countries that offcially recognise Palestine as a state!
Ed Miliband has instructed Labour MPs to back a vote in parliament that would call on the government to “unilaterally recognise” Palestine as a state.
Although such a vote would only be a symbolic backing for statehood, Mr Miliband’s call comes less than a fortnight after Sweden's newly-elected government stated its intention to officially recognise the territories - the first major European Union state to do so.
Many countries in the EU - along with the likes of the United States, Japan and Australia - do not recognise Palestine, but here is a map of all the countries that do.
British backing of Palestinian statehood could have “profound international implications” with Israel always maintaining that recognition should only follow a negotiated agreement between both sides. David Cameron is expected to abstain from voting.
Recognition has been a long-standing ambition of the Palestine Liberation Organisation since Yasser Arafat proclaimed a declaration of independence in 1988.
In 2012, the United Nations approved the de facto recognition of a Palestinian state - there were 138 votes in favour, nine against and 41 abstentions.

Fifty Five Scotland:
Ed Miliband promises Scotland home rule bill if Labour win the election That was yesterday’s news. We have it on very good authority that Mondays paper will see him pledge his testicles to the Scottish people and pay everyone who votes for him £100. We are not sure where this money is coming from but suspect English tax payers might see there tax bill go up a wee bit.

Photos from Wangusi Masinde's post in I'm backing Ed Miliband The next Labour government women Ministers ready for work
ED Miliband's Team of women Ministers ready for number 10 and the next Labour government. They are not here to abuse people but to serve the citizenry. No name calling, just serve the British people. That is what we call LEADERSHIP. Putting people first. That is the Labour party. That is why women are at the heart of the next Labour government because they understand what mothers and families go through. Do they look "useless" as as PM David Cameron abused them?

Peter Mechan: Photos from Denzil Smith's post in United Scots Against British Rule Reports today in the Mail on Sunday of a split between Labour leader Ed Miliband and Scottish(Branch) leader Jim Murphy on how to turn around the party's fortunes in Scotland indicate that panic is setting in. While Mr Murphy has called on all Scottish Labour MPs to abandon Westminster and begin campaigning now, Labour officials in London have said he has "no authority" to tell them what to do.

(Reuters) - Britain's left-leaning Labour Party's policies are unhelpful for business and a Labour win at the May election would be a "catastrophe", the head of an international pharmacy chain said on Sunday.
Stefano Pessina, acting chief executive of the Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (WBA.O) which operates Britain's largest chain of chemists, made the outspoken comments in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
