UK Says No to Obama

After wonderful long debate--which we'll never see in our Congress, to our shame--the British Parliament just voted down okay to hit Syria, 285-272 (and the debate didn't seem that close).  Just as important, Cameron said he would abide by it.  One member shouts, "Resign!"  Setback for Tories. The Guardian blog:

Ed Milband stands up on a point of order.
He asks for an assurance that the govenrment will not use the royal perogative to start military intervention.
Cameron says he believes in respecting the will of the House.
He says he "gets" the message.
