    I don't care about it, it's some regressives killing some other regressives half way around the world. The things that could actually work are not politically viable, but quite frankly having clear diplomatic channels would do more than this virtue signalling.

    If we revoked the credentials of the ambassadors of all unsavoury states we would probably only have one from the entire middle East, and quite frankly we'd be expelling the ambassadors of a lot of our former colonies. Why are we virtue signalling over Myanmar, but not the middle East, why are we allowing all the Arab ambassadors to stay?

    So you are willing to ignore crimes against humanity as long as it isn't near you.
    You should really put that on your next manifesto

    Are you going to be including in yours that you only care about crimes against humanity when your virtue signalling against them will have effectively no impact on your life.

    You seem a bit too busy telling me I'm a heartless ******* to actually bother defending the fact that this is nothing more than virtue signalling, and that is so extremely limited in extent. Why is this restricted to Myanmar? Or can we expect a new petition to piss off all our Arab allies due to their dreadful records in the coming days?
