May Faces Second Debate in Two Days on UK Joining Syria Attack

May Faces Second Debate in Two Days on UK Joining Syria Attack May Faces Second Debate in Two Days on UK Joining Syria Attack

Mr Johnson said Mrs May will be making a statement in the House of Commons on Monday and it will give parliamentarians a chance to hold the executive to account.

The premier endured six and half hours of proceedings on Monday - including more than three hours answering 140 direct questions from members - as she sought to demonstrate her commitment to Parliament in the face of allegations that she had rushed to war without seeking proper approval.

Corbyn also refuted May's claim that diplomatic action did not work, as such talks had led to the destruction of 600 tonnes worth of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile in 2013.

May, who has regained confidence after winning support for her tough stance on Syria and Russian Federation, said she was driven by the need to decide quickly on joining the United States and France in Saturday's strikes, made in retaliation for a suspected gas attack.

At a time when May might have hoped for a surge in nationalistic pride, 54 per cent said she was wrong to order strikes by Royal Air Force Tornado without the consent of Parliament, while only 30 per cent backed her (there were 16 per cent don't knows).

"Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace", said Jeremy Corbyn, the veteran leftist leader of the main Opposition Labour Party.

"It is my responsibility as prime minster to make these decisions".

The decision required the evaluation of intelligence "much of which was of a nature that could not be shared with Parliament".

Ireland will not condemn the air strikes and Irish sources said there was no division within the European Union about the need to deter chemical attacks and that the Assad regime was involved in wholesale slaughter of its own people.

"It was in our national interest and it is a decision that should be, I believe, supported by everybody who recognises that we need to re-establish the global norms in relation to the use and the prohibition of the use of chemical weapons".

The group said it "strongly condemned" the action and accused Ms. "And we can not wait to alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks".

"Acting through the United Nations, the prime minister should now take a diplomatic lead to negotiate a pause in this abhorrent conflict", he said.

"This means engaging with all parties that are involved in the conflict, including Iran, Israel, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the U.S. to ensure there is an immediate ceasefire".

"We can't go back to a world where the use of chemical weapons becomes normalized", May said.

Legally, the British prime minister was not obliged to consult Parliament before ordering the military action, but the recent convention has been to do. The SNP's Ian Blackford said the timetable meant a vote had been "perfectly possible".

The strikes, carried out alongside the United States, mark May's first major military action since coming to power nearly two years ago. May "at what point the president instructed her that military action should be taken".

"Once again we have been dragged into military action with little regard for the humanitarian [situation] on the ground and no long-term strategic plan".

The Lib Dem leader, Vince Cable, said he regretted that the prime minister had not sought parliament's approval, but hinted his party would have given its backing, calling some of her arguments compelling.
