DFID – BRITISH POLICY ON LIBYA – 5 April 2011

Dr Julian Lewis: The hon. Gentleman [Hugh Bayley] is talking a great deal of very good sense, but does he not recognise that the logical outcome of rightly saying, "We shouldn't arm the insurgents," and, "We shouldn't seek regime change," will be a total stalemate and that Gaddafi will not leave at all? That is the realistic outcome to expect. Does the hon. Gentleman not think that we ought to frame our policy accordingly?
