    "D`Amato is so completely in the dark about this whole issue that he states in his numbered paragraph five that Britain voted in favor of the Partition Resolution: 'as soon as Resolution 181 was passed (and of course Great Britain voted in its favor).' Britain in fact abstained." The commentary that followed the article elaborate on this point; an ABSTENTION is the same as a vote in favour, because it means that the Mandatory did not vote AGAINST the Partition Plan. Use your brain; the *point* of Res 181 is for the Mandatory to seek the *consent* of the UN GA as per Article 27 of the Mandate text. Britain therefore should properly abstain i.e. it should not vote (as a member nation) FOR the very consent that it is itself REQUESTING (as the Mandatory), because that introduces a conflict of interest. But a British vote AGAINST Res 181 would kill it, even if the vote were 33-14 in favor. Understand now?
