Veteran Tom Tugendhart’s powerful speech on Taliban takeover

A former soldier and Conservative MP warned that the situation in Afghanistan ‘damn well feels like’ defeat.  Speaking in the House of Commons debate on Afghanistan, Tom Tugendhart urged a fresh “vision” to help the nation.

Tugendhart’s emotive speech given a standing ovation by MPs.  The conservative MP recalled experiences in the country.

He remembered an image of a man whose name he never knew: carrying a child who had died hours ago.  The man carrying his child into the UK base, begging for help.  There was nothing we could do it was over.  This is what defeat looks like.
