Jeremy Corbyn brands War on Terror a failure

Jeremy Corbyn brands War on Terror a failure

The UK general election will be held on 8 June.

Labour's defence policy has been dismissed as a shambles by Tory opponents, after leader Jeremy Corbyn failed to rule out the possibility that plans to replace Britain's nuclear deterrent could be scrapped.

Theresa May's Conservative Party continues to hold a formidable lead over their rivals in the latest general election polls.

Trump contradicts White House on reasons for Comey firing, calls ex-FBI director "showboat" and "grandstander". So no more hand-holding with Donald Trump.

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order on Thursday launching a commission to review alleged voter fraud and voter suppression in the USA election system.

Mr Corbyn however said the Prime Minister's leadership approach was risking more deaths in Syria and Labour would take a completely different approach to worldwide affairs accusing Ms May of "pandering" to Donald Trump in the White House.

"A Labour Government will conduct a robust and independent foreign policy - made in Britain", he said. "And pandering to an erratic Trump administration will not deliver stability", he will say.

Mr Corbyn condemned Mr Trump's United States administration for "recklessly" endangering global security through interventions in North Korea and Syria while opposing President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. "I accept that military action, under global law and as a genuine last resort, is in some circumstances necessary", he will say.

Attackers of peaceful protesters in Washington DC were Erdogan's security detail
And for all the talk of their great relationship, President Trump mispronounced Erdogan's name multiple times in his statement. Trump and Erdogan used part of their meeting Tuesday to discuss the ongoing fight against ISIS. .

The Labour leader then closed his speech with a Martin Luther King quote: "The chain reaction of evil - hate - begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark days of annihilation".

The Tories have said they will not only retain the commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation target of spending 2% of GDP on defence - which Labour also supports - but also ensure there is an annual real-terms increase in the armed forces' budget throughout the next parliament. "In fact, many would say, just the opposite", he said.

On Trident, Mr Corbyn said: "I am often asked if as Prime Minister I would order the use of nuclear weapons".

"Jeremy Corbyn is simply too weak and shambolic to stand up to terrorists and tyrants who want to do us harm".
