Brit lawmaker criticised for Gaza remark
London, July 23: While the whole world is hoping that the conflict in Gaza Strip subsides, a British lawmaker has gone and said that ‘he would've fired rockets if he lived in the Palestine territory.'

Liberal Democrat member David Ward tweeted-

Soon after his tweet many tweeples criticized his statement and demanded his expulsion. Many on social media called on Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to suspend Ward from Liberal Democrats.

The party soon distanced itself from Ward's comments and issued a statement saying: "We utterly condemn David Ward's comment; they are not representative of the Liberal Democrats." The party takes this matter very seriously, it said.

This is however not the first time that Ward has made a comment of this nature. Earlier he was suspended from the junior party for making a comment about the Jewish state.
