My multisigned _Guardian_ letter this morning:

Is it time for the UK to stop recognising Hosni Mubarak as president of Egypt? Mubarak does not have a legitimate claim to this title through popular consent. He was the president for the simple reason that he was clearly the person presiding – the Foreign Office recognised his government because they were the people governing. Now the streets of Egypt are patrolled by protesters and the museums are protected by activists. Mubarak and his thugs may terrorise, but they do not govern.We, Britain, cannot bring down this dictator (that is for the Egyptian people), but we can stop doing anything to prop him up.
