The Voice of Sanity

Of this, Peter Oborne tweets that, “This morning Jeremy Corbyn is the voice of sanity. and represents the opinions of the majority of the British people”:

Bombs won’t save lives or bring about peace. This legally questionable action risks escalating further, as US defence secretary James Mattis has admitted, an already devastating conflict and therefore makes real accountability for war crimes and use of chemical weapons less, not more likely.

Britain should be playing a leadership role to bring about a ceasefire in the conflict, not taking instructions from Washington and putting British military personnel in harm’s way.

Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump. The Government should do whatever possible to push Russia and the United States to agree to an independent UN-led investigation of last weekend’s horrific chemical weapons attack so that those responsible can be held to account.

Johnny Mercer tweets that, “Parliament can now fulfil its proper role of holding the Government to account, and MPs from all sides must and will be heard in that.” MPs from all sides, give him what he wants. Or make way for people who will.
