Kosovo: Voices of dissent
The bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade started a marked increase in voices of concern emerging from some MPs over Nato's air offensive against Serbia.
In the first of a series looking at the response to the conflict by UK politicians, BBC News Online asked some of the most prominent critics of the allied strategy to set out their views.
A staunch opponent of the Nato offensive, the left-wing Labour MP has visited both Serbia and the Chinese embassy in London since the air strikes began.
The independent MP and former BBC war correspondent supports the allied action, but has consistently argued that air power alone has never won any military conflict and says ground force will be needed for Nato to prevail.
The Labour MP opposes the bombing and is particularly concerned with the plight of the refugees and changes in UK asylum law that, she says, send a confused signal to those fleeing Kosovo.
Throughout the Kosovo conflict, the Conservative MP has insisted Britain should not be involved because it does not have any strategic or economic interest in the Balkan region.
