Syria: Corbyn accused Government of 'waiting for instructions' from Trump

Syria: Corbyn accused Government of 'waiting for instructions' from Trump

"It was both right and legal to take military action together with our closest allies to alleviate further humanitarian suffering by degrading the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability", May said, adding that she would address Parliament on Monday.

"Britain should press for an independent UN-led investigation of last weekend's horrific chemical weapons attack so that those responsible can be held to account".

Speaking to reporters after a closed emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, Mr Nebenzia said Russian Federation was very concerned with "the risky escalation" of the situation and "aggressive policies" and preparations that some governments were making - a clear reference to the Trump administration and its allies.

He added: 'Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump.

Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, went further, saying the Labour party believed there was no military answer to the Syrian crisis.

'September': Taylor Swift Dragged for Countrified Cover of Earth, Wind & Fire Classic
And much to Swifties' surprise and delight, the new songs prove Old Taylor is still very much alive and kickin'. Another person tweeted, " Taylor Swift sucked the life and soul out of that song".

Mr Corbyn said it is "vital that parliament has the chance to debate and decide in advance" of any military action, which he warned "risks a risky escalation of the conflict".

Rather than further military action, what is urgently needed is a coordinated global drive to achieve a ceasefire and a negotiated settlement under United Nations auspices. They stressed that Syria must be prevented from launching a similar attack on its own people in future.

Mrs May is reluctant to ask President Trump to hold off any action until she has the opportunity to consult MPs, the BBC understands from well-placed sources.

"Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is set to announce that the party would implement a new scheme providing free bus travel for all under 25s, should Labour win the next General Election. There was the second world war".

"Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace", he said, adding that Britain should be leading the response and "not taking instructions from Washington and putting British military personnel in harm's way".

China says Xi pledges unrelated to trade spat
China proposed tariffs last week on US beef, soybeans and other agricultural goods in the deepening trade dispute. Private sector analysts saw Xi's speech as an overture to help end the biggest trade dispute since World War II.

There must be urgent confirmation from the Prime Minister that there will be no further action and no change to the role of United Kingdom military in regards to Syria without a full parliamentary debate.

"The reason they're not doing it is they are frightened they'll lose the vote".

She was asked three time whether she believed Russia or the U.S. was a greater threat to world peace, before conceding that, "at this point", given its role in Syria and Salisbury, Russia posed the higher risk.

Number 10 made no reference to the Commons being given a vote on military action, prompting speculation that the Prime Minister may be preparing to proceed without consulting MPs.

The SNP is pushing for an emergency debate on the matter. However, the vote would not be binding on the government, which has shown over the past six months it is minded to abstain and effectively ignore opposition motions.
