Good leadership...

"The most important principle
For victory in war
Is having your soldiers
Die gladly."


(A verse from Sun Tzu's 'Art of War' found in 'Taiko - An Epic Novel Of War in Feudal Japan' about making your 'troops'/colleagues/volunteers/etc believe in 'the cause' you're working for.)

Letter to MP following Israel's violent attack on humanitarian flotilla

Letter below sent to my newly elected MP as well as (Deputy Prime Minister) Nick Clegg and (Foreign Secretary) William Hague (with some minor amendments).
Dear John Cryer,

I hope you are well and settling into office ok.

I just wanted to write a quick message to urge you to condemn the state of Israel's recent and continued disregard for international law (expansion of settlements etc) should opportunity present itself. Moreover, to do whatever is within your power as a parliamentary representative for Britain to oppose (and at least not support) the inhumane blockade/imprisonment of the people of Gaza.

Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,
Adil Hussain
