Subject: RE: BS: INTERNATIONAL BRIGADES Urge MP support
I would have thought that the Foreign Enlistment Act 1870 would have placed all the volunteers in breach of the law. This would make it rather difficult for Parliament to acknowledge any kind of recognition for their illegal activities. Or does modern Parliament turn a blind eye to flagrant criminality when it suits?
